We had never stayed in this part of London and it was a great destination and under normal circumstances would have been a slice of heaven. But given the HUGE construction projects underway it should be quite some time before it returns to its peaceful self.
This hotel is a typical Hilton Doubletree product with excellent front of the house, ample rooms with bath and a nice executive lounge that is well stocked and nicely appointed. I would look forward to returning here but only if the construction projects have finished. They start very early and even on weekends so it is not very restful. Although, if you are there on business you would most likely not notice as you would if in town for a leisure stay.
The hotel was equidistant from two different tube lines which made exploring easy. We most enjoyed walking home from a long day out and about to find Westminister and Big Ben waiting for us as we climbed up the tube steps.
Had this not been a stay with out points I would have definitely been more upset. As it turned out the booming construction served as a wake up call for us to get out and see London. Although I do think someone should have shared this with us and others making reservations as this definitely was disturbing even for this city girl.
