From the standpoint of an American tourist looking to see the "classic" London sites, the Royal Horseguards is perfect.
From a location standpoint the Royal Horseguards is a short walk from the London Eye, Trafalgar Square, Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, Westminster Abbey and much more. Did I mention that the Embankment station is about 100m away?
As for the hotel, it is beautiful. Great views across the river and the small park located on hotel property is a perfect way to start or end your day. Hotel staff were very inviting and friendly, answering all of our questions with a smile. Only downside was that the rooms are a bit small for the money, but again, the location and staff make up for it. Also, I've been told that London rooms are closer to those in Europe vs. those in the US - so the size of the rooms may be standard.
The next time I'm in London I will not hesitate to check in at the Royal Horseguards.
