Stayed here at the weekend when it seemed mostly empty. Fascinating building with long oak pannelled corridors. We had a room facing over the river with a great view over the Thames and with the London Eye to one side.

Pleasant traditional rooms with the usual comfy marriott bed. Lovely friendly staff. The bar and restaurant are big grand rooms looking out over the river. Breakfast was excellent with a big buffet choice and they were happy to cater for my wife who is gluten intolerant.

Decent sized swimming pool on an upper floor (all inside no river view from here).

Room Tip: See if you can get a river view room - costs extra or needs an upgrade (we got one ;¬) ) £18 for...

Chose this hotel for a girls NYE trip to London and Paris. The location was perfect if you're a first-timer or into all of the touristy activities in London! All of the major attractions are in walking distance or a short tube ride away and there is a bus stop right outside of the hotel. The staff is very helpful, including the concierge with lots of suggestions for activities, the bell staff, and even housekeeping stopping by nightly to offer turn down service. Spectacular view of the London Eye and wonderful staff make for a great stay.

I was there for New Year's and this place is THE place to stay. Amazing views of the Thames and it's 30 seconds from The London Eye. The Underground station is a 5 minute walk.

I stayed with my wife for 2 nights in Early January.

Time for me to disclose.....I like Marriott hotels, the rooms, the food, and the comfy beds.

I'm pleased to confirm that the County Hall did not disappoint.

Check in was simple and straight forward, and we were given room 414. The room was large by London standards, and had two comfy chairs as well as a couple of desks, a table, and of course the comfy bed. The room was spotless. We had a view of the Thames and also the London Eye.

We only had breakfast to eat in the hotel, which was nice and of good quality. Beware though, if you are not on a bed and breakfast rate, it costs £22!! It's not worth that price, and I would recommend a number of pubs nearby doing a full English for £8.

Without exception, all the staff we spoke with were really friendly and eager to please.

We'd love to go back there, though the price of the rooms means its only for very special occasions.

I used points and paid a 40 pound upgrade for a river view room. After being shown three different small oddly shaped rooms I slipped the bellman a fiver and was suddenly offered a large room with four poster king size bed room number 344. My advice is don't settle for the first room they offer and don't be shy about providing a small gratuity. It's an old hotel converted from a public building so it seems to have more than a normal share of goofy rooms.
Room 344 has a great bath which fills in minutes but they keep the water scalding hot so be careful! The concierge lounge served a decent breakfast but I don't think they know how to make scrambled eggs which were pretty marginal. All in all a very pleasant stay.

Stayed here on xmas eve and the night before as we were in London for the 2 days. Check-in was a breeze & we were told that our room was in a "quiet are" of the hotel. What that actually meant was a very long walk to the other side of the hotel but I can't complain as the room made it worthwhile. Lovely room with entrance area, bathroom, "lounge"-type area with desk & 2 armchairs, large bed and dressing room with wardrobe & drink-making facilities. The view out of the window was towards the Thames along Southbank and overlooking part of the London Eye and a temporary ice-rink.

Had bar snacks in the bar once we'd settled in and saw the menu for the restaurant xmas dinner so asked to book a table on xmas eve only to be told it was fully booked however the staff were amazing an managed to get us in at 18:30 so long as we could vacate the table by 20:00 which wasn't a problem for us. The meal itself was absolutely fabulous - being a vegetarian I am used to veggie meals being an "afterthought" but this wasn't and even my meat-eating husband was impressed!

After dinner we retired to the executive lounge which was nice but it seemed to stop serving alcohol awfully early compared to other Marriot hotels such as the Heathrow Renaissance. On return to the room for a final night's sleep we found a red stocking on the bed filled with hotel goodies which was an unexpected but delightful touch and put huge smiles on our faces! :-)

Check-out was easy the following day and we were able to get away easily as we'd been able to keep our car directly outside the hotel as the valet service started at 7am but we'd needed our car an hour before that on both days.

All in all a great stay and I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again. There are facilities there such as a pool and sauna but unfortunately we didn't have time to try them out but will make it a priority next time!

Had booked a suite. When I arrived (well past check in) it was not ready but I was offered a downgraded room. I declined. Jet lagged, I waited for some hours past check in and finally the room was made available. Everything else was decidedly average but the attitude of the staff was what one would expect at a poorly run 2 star property. Great location, yes but I will never consider staying here again. If you require excellent service, check that, acceptable service, London has many vastly superior options.
