Stayed at the hotel for 5 nights with my husband and we just loved it! We had a very spacious room with a fabulous view of the River Thames, Big Ben and Parliament. In a historic building, the hotel has beautiful public spaces with lots of wood paneling, lovely furniture, fresh flowers.
Everyone we encountered was friendly and helpful. We did have a small glitch with our luggage when checking in as the doorman never put our room number on our luggage ticket so I had to go on a bit of a search to locate it. The front desk was extremely apologetic and even sent us a fruit tray and a note as an apology. Anyone can make a mistake and it is so appreciated when a mistake is acknowledged and a kind gesture is made to make amends. Well done Marriott.
Our room was very large with 2 high back chairs, small table, desk and chair, dresser, 2 side tables and a king size bed and my very favorite, a small table, chair and mirror (outside of the bathroom) where you could do your hair and make-up. Even with all that and a spacious closet there was plenty of floor space. The mattress was not great and we asked housekeeping to take a look. I think they flipped it and added a new thick mattress pad which did help some.
As Marriott Gold members we enjoyed a wonderful breakfast every morning and had our choice of either having it in the Library or in the restaurant. Both were excellent. The Library is cozy and comfortable and has great views of the Thames. The food selection was fantastic and everything was delicious. We enjoyed great views in the restaurant also and there were a few more breakfast items to choose from--again, everything fresh and delicious.
The hotel is in a great location and we walked almost everywhere to see the parks, museums and historic sights in London. It's also very close to a Tube station--just across Westminster Bridge.
Evening Concierge Lounge was nice (Marriott Gold member). Not a huge space but they had a nice selections of drinks, snacks and hors d'oeuvres. Such a bonus to have this free option after a long day of sight-seeing--especially with London prices.
Will definitely try to return to this hotel the next time we are in London.
