My husband and I are planning a trip to London in July - 7 days seeing the sights in London and then 3 days in Portsmouth at the end. We're flying in and out of Gatwick, and due to a lot of Hilton Honours points we're planning on staying at a Hilton hotel. The Hilton Victoria seems to be the logical choice, with Victoria Station and Gatwick / Portsmouth connections appearing fairly straightforward. Tripadvisor reviews for Hilton Victoria aren't spectacular, but I feel like the location might be right where we need to be. Hilton Westminster looks great, the reviews are wonderful apart from some complaints about construction noise. Is there a more straightforward choice for us in Hilton hotels? We'd like it to be easy to enter and exit London when needed but also workable to get around and see the sights without too much trouble. This is our first trip to London so it's so hard to know if we're making a good choice.
Thanks to my fellow Trip Advisors who can cut through the logistics for us!
