We spent a night here with the kids a we had a wedding to attend at Milbank Towers which literally is right behind the hotel so an ideal location for our stay.
Check in was no problem though we arrive at 2.00 and neither of the two rooms were available as we were an hour early, but they offered another room instead. Interestingly the hotel has a smoking floor which is a pulse for the smokers out there.
We were given the cookies at reception which are a nice touch but can't really cover some of the inadequacies of the hotel.
We had a standard room which doesn't really feel like a £200 a night room, much more Holiday Inn Express than Hilton. Small bathroom with a shower and those awful pump dispensers for soap, why do hotels do this, makes it feel more like a public toilet than expensive hotel.
Bed was comfy, there is a n Apple TV which has Sky sports which was great though the screen is small. Tea and coffee making facilities are in a draw under the TV. There is an ironing board as well which is handy. We were on the 8th floor (odd number) and over looked the adjacent offices.
There is parking available and it costs £20 for 24 hours. You can't pre-book so it's down to chance if there is a space available. We did have a snack in the restaurant on the first floor and the steak and pizza were both tasty.
This chain seems popular with Americans and I suppose if you can get a good discount the location is great being a 10 min walk from parliament but for the full rate you can get much more comfort and style than you get here.
Don't think I'll be back!
