We were booked at the Hilton excel by friends as a birthday gift for one night in August.
The hotel is a few minutes walk from the DLR station and the Excel exhibition centre and is right on the river front which is visible from the breakfast restaurant. It’s also not far from city airport and you can see planes regularly taking off but you can’t hear the noise of the planes which is a bonus.
We got there early evening and were able to check in straight away. The front desk staff were very polite and helpful.
Unfortunately they did not have us down as a family room so the pull out bed was not made up but we were just dropping off bags and going back out so it wasn’t a problem. When we returned later that night we mentioned it to the front desk and within minutes some arrived to make up the bed.
The room was so big and well equipped with bed, sofa/bed, desk, wardrobe and tea and coffee making facilities.
The breakfast is a buffet style with lots of choice of hot and cold food. They also had staff walking around refilling coffees as needed which was good.
All in all we had a really good stay and would definitely stay here again.
