Central London can be a noisy place however the Thames and the entrance courtyard offer an effective buffer to traffic sounds.Then, the rooms have an additional sliding window fitted over the original that creates another layer of insulation from cold and sound. Brilliant!
This hotel is beautiful; A stunning Edwardian Baroque style building that was once the seat of government for the London County Council. Take time to explore the detail both inside and out! The library is particularly impressive.
The attention to detail in the guest rooms and common areas is notable - On the practical side, our room even had a US 110 volt plug-in by the desk.
Executive lounge: The food service was very good; the hours of service quite generous and even during the 'closed' hours still accessible for self-service coffee and beverages in the fridges. The breakfast offered was very complete with eggs and bacon in addition to the usual cereal, yogurt, fruit and cheeses. The wine and hor d'oeuvres in the evening are excellent.
Then, there is the view. I highly recommend splashing out and getting a room with a view of big Ben or at least a river view. You will not be disappointed. How delightful to hear the chimes of Big Ben (with the clang softened to velvety tones by the insulating windows) as you drift off to sleep....
London is most certainly a city to do some walking in and this hotel is the perfect launching point. All the great places to see are within a 45 minute walk; but take your time and explore the details along the way. If you are not up for the walk, the Underground is nearby or take a cab. London cabbies are the best in the world. Period.
