As others have reported, this is indeed an excellent hotel in the central area of London. My spacious room looked across the Thames at the London Eye and Waterloo Bridge. The room provided a full range of amenitities, a lock-box, and coffee and tea services. The only warning I would make in this regard is to accept the porters offer to demonstrate how the various room controls work-I have seldom been flumixed in trying to control lighting and TV access, but I was here. The solution was a return of a porter with a great smile and a friendly tour de force-it was similiar to having my son explain how some aspect of my computer operated and with the same great attitude. I stayed at the Horseguards in the past and was very pleased. This time there had been some updrades to the facility, and the staff was even more outstanding. They are friendly, knowledgeable, and outgoing. Further, numerous language skills are available and some identified by small national flag pins on uniforms. My best memory was coming out of the hotel one evening and seeing a beautiful Mazarati parked in front-when I stopped to admire the car, the doorman, with a smile handed me the keys and told me to enjoy myself: with a second to let it sink in, I returned the keys and with a shared laugh, started off my evening on a high note. The hotel is minutes from Trafalgar SQ, a major Underground(Tube) station, and Rail Station, and a short trip to West End Theatres and restaurants, pubs and bars. Regency Cleaners near the tube station offer same day cleaning and dry cleaning a a very reasonable rate. The Sherlock Holmes Pub in Nothumberland offer a good atart to London pubs.
