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.

It may not be the cheapest but worth every penny. An outstanding hotel with great service. Staff are always attentive and nothing is too much trouble. Rooms are very well furnished and the river views are stunning by night.

Thank you for your TripAdvisor review regarding your recent stay with us. Indeed the views from our river facing rooms are spectacular, especially so at night, with The London Eye and The Palace of Westminster lit up against the skyline. Our team are indeed our greatest asset, so I am thrilled to hear that you found them courteous and attentive. We cannot wait to welcome you back. Kind Regards, Theresa Collins

We did not have it at the hotel. We did have afternoon tea at the British Musuem - it was great. They start serving it at 3:00 pm.

Does this hotel have American-style electrical outlets in the rooms?
I had a room 3 years ago that had American outlets but my last two rooms did not. So I guess it depends on which room you get. I suggest picking up an adapter to be safe. I bought one at the airport last year for $20 that works in both the UK & EU.
