Step into another world when you walk in this magnificent hotel, where you will be swept away by the décor, comfort, staff & everything else. I cannot find an appropriate word to describe the hotel, but let say it made me feel like royalty.

Probably my hotel of choice when in London, the staff are always attentive and helpful, excellent location, rooms immaculate, can't think of a negative. The turn down service is a nice touch, bathrooms are well proportioned with decent shower pressure, plenty of toiletries. Minibar well stocked too.

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.
