It ended up being even more amazing when reception found out I had proposed to my partner Mari-Claire in the first room we were given and gave us an amazing upgrade to an executive room. Needless to say she accepted. This hotel is so well presented...

Probably the most classy and posh hotel in the town. Best view from the top to the London Eye and Thames. Bit expensive restaurant but with the excellent service. Great place to stay for a weekend - the highest possible floor recommended.

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.
