I booked a Doubletree rather than a typical quaint European hotel because I was hoping for more of an American-style bathroom. My main complaint was the shower was more of a mist and the glass shower door made it hard to keep the water in the tub. The teen girls in my group complained they weren't easily able get their hair wet. The hotel is tastefully decorated in a contemporary style. The breakfast is nice. The staff is helpful and friendly. My bed was a little worn out with a sagging mattress. Air conditioning was spotty and there was a heat wave in London when we were there.
The hotel is well located, just a short walk from the Holborn Underground Station, and the neighborhood is stocked with quite a few restaurants. It is also walkable to many major attractions if you are fit. We walked to the Eye, Trafalgar Square, Big Ben, Parliament and Westminster Abbey.
I'd probably stay here again, but only if the rates were low. They were pretty high when I booked my rooms. With lower room rates, the rating would have been higher.
