I stayed in this hotel last month and was incredibly pleased with everything. I was in a 'single' room but it was the equivalent of a double room in a regular London hotel. The reception is vast and clean and inviting. Just outside of the bustle of Trafalgar Square this is a classy hotel where anyone can feel welcome. The...

By far the best experience I could ask for. I was not seeking luxury; I just wanted a quiet good quality place to stay downtown, and The Grand is GRAND! I stayed on the 9th loor and I could see and hear Big Ben (but no street noise nor sound from neighboring rooms). The place is beautifully kept and extremely...

Definitely a business hotel, but the location is so good that it will work for anyone. We stayed a week, and had no complaints at all. Room was modern and more spacious than what you usually get in London. We were on the street side, but high enough up so that the noise was not an issue at all.

I was VERY pleased with the location being right in the heart of Trafalgar Square. The hotel was a short walk to several different tube stations and bus stops around every corner. The hotel was off a side street but you could see Trafalgar square if you walk out the hotel doors. Inside, the atmosphere was very business like. I...

The location of the Grand is perfect for anyone who wants to walk London. Westminster is a 10 minute walk from the hotel. Buckingham Palace is a 20 min walk. Shopping off Oxford St and Picadilly is also within a 15-20 min walk. The amenities are lacking, however. For example, there's no restaurant in the hotel, and the room service...

My friend and I, both 22, took a trip through Europe after we graduated college. The first leg of our trip was to London, and staying at The Grand was an amazing way to start. Recommend 100%.

We stayed here for six days. The location is fabulous - close to the Tube, to all the major sites, and that is probably the best part of this hotel. I'm surprised it's ranked at 56 in the London hotels, and i suppose it's because of the good price and the good location. But the hotel itself, despite its revamped...

I enjoyed my stay here very much. Room was very clean, appropriate and i liked the fact that the staff previewed a little closet for guest self service, meaning that if i needed sugar, cream, coffee or a needle, i could go get it myself in the little closet - very smart! The only two things that are negative in...

Nice rooms, not minimalist but contemporary room design. No breakfast. Decent place to have meetings on the 2nd floor, and there are conference/rooms meeting rooms in the basement.

Such a wonderful location - right off Trafalgar Square. It could not be more convenient for Trafalgar Square, Whitehall or Charing Cross station. The room was wonderful, comfortable, clean and spacious. The bed was soooo comfortable - unlike so many hotels. There is a 24 hour Tesco direct about 20 yards away to buy any food, wine or supplies needed....

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.
