I recently stayed at the Intercontinental London Westminster for four nights. The hotel is beautiful - rooms are new and thoughtfully designed - and the bathrooms are a real delight, very big by London standards, with a large bath and separate rain shower.
As an Ambassador member, I was given an upgrade to a King Executive, which is a bit larger than the standard Classic room. My room overlooked an interior courtyard and while the view was nothing special, my room was very quiet. I was initially given a room overlooking the street but found this a little noisy and my request to move to a quieter part of the hotel was quickly accommodated by the helpful reception staff. The quietness of the hotel deserves special mention because this is often not the case when a hotel is built within an existing heritage building.
Location-wise, the hotel is right across the street from the St James’s Park tube station and a short five minute walk from Westminster Abbey, the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben. New Scotland Yard with its famous revolving sign is also just a few steps away.
I liked the intimacy of the hotel and the design/theming is a nice touch, with a nod to both the history of the building and its location in the heart of Westminster. The fresh floral displays in the hotel lounge are really gorgeous.
I’ve tried quite a few hotels in London and this was by far my favourite. I would definitely stay here again on my next visit!
