Wow this hotel is great. It's got wonderful atmosphere, wonderful people and just all around presents the feeling of fancy. Everyone says hi to you as you walk by and everyone makes eye contact and is attentive. The customer service is great and the room (as seen in the picture) without all the fancy films or lighting tricks looks perfect....

Wonderful hotel, great service and perfect location for all the tourist hotspots. Very much the classic, well to-do service, although potentially a little cold at times. One bellboy was whole other level of polite and really made us feel at home. Stayed for Valentine's Day and would happily stay again!

This property is now my fave in London. I have stayed at a lot of hotels but this property tops them all. The staff is courteous and accommodating without being cloying.

Staying in Westminster

Neighbourhood Profile
Westminster
If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square, and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just up the road as well. As captivating as the architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are highlights of the area too. St James's Park (arguably London's loveliest), the expansive Green Park, and pedestrian friendly tree lined paths along the river showcase the exquisite manicure provided by English gardeners. Just beyond the landmarks and the gorgeous outdoor spaces, quiet residential squares and age old local pubs offer a more subdued take on this global seat of power in the heart of London.
