“Very Modern..Great Location”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

This hotel is very modern and in a great location if walking to London attractions. The room was a lot smaller than I expected, but it was adequate for a one night stay. The bathroom was also small with only a shower. We had a room on the 14th floor which did not have much of a view as there are tall buildings surrounding the hotel.

The fitness center is very nice. It is separate into three different sections, has several treadmills, elliptical, bicycles and it even has two rowing machines. There are several weight machines as well as free weights.

The executive lounge was very nice and offered nice choices for the evening and in the morning for breakfast. Although food is only available in the evening between 5:30-7:30 pm, the lounge is open 24hrs (key access) with drinks available all the time.

The hotel charges for local calls, but the concierge desk was kind enough to dial the number of the car company to confirm our transportation pick up.

Dear love2travel109,

Thank you for your review of your recent stay at the DoubleTree by Hilton London - Westminster. It's a pleasure indeed to receive such detailed positive feedback of your stay, and we are delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us and found our location and facilities convenient and useful.

I am sorry that you were disappointed with the size of your bathroom. This is a common feature with most London properties due to space constraints, however please be assured that all our rooms have been designed to offer our guests a comfortable stay with all the facilities you may expect from a 4-star property, making maximum use of the limited space available in a prime city centre location. I can recommend upgrading to one of our King City Suites if further space is required as the Suites are significantly larger, and are equipped with both a bath and a separate shower.

Thank you once again for your review. We appreciate your loyalty to our Brand, and very much look forward to welcoming you back to Westminster on your next visit to London.

Kind regards,


Dola O
Guest Relations Manager

This is a standard mid range business type hotel but manages to be a bit better than average with some added value extras. The rooms are a bit on the small side but good for central london. There's a mac computer in your room which doubles up as a tv, and very nice toiletries from Crabtree and Evelyn. You get a cookie when you check in, the breakfast buffet is so big it includes a choice of porridge made with water or porridge made with milk. My only thing is that although it's very central and only 5-10 minutes walk to Westminster, it is not a very residential area so there aren't very many restaurants nearby for dinner.

Helpful and hospitable staff check. Ample selection for breakfast check. In-room Mac computer and free wifi check. Modern hotel in a quiet elegant location (neighbouring Burberry design studios) check. This is one straightforward hotel for travellers who are seeking a quiet retreat at the end of the day yet close to all the fun of central london. Must book executive room for best experience.

We stayed at this hotel in August for 6 days. First of all we liked location, walking distance to Big Ben and walking distance to Pimlico underground as well. We stayed in King city suite and room was spacious enough. Bedroom and living room so good choice for family of 4. Tried to upgrade for King Master Suite but didn't succeed and that's good as view through the window from our room (room without number just "Westminster Suite") was fabulous. We were able to see Big Ben, parliament and London eye. Amazing view!!! Rooms are clean. Suite comes with Executive lounge access.
Cons:
1. WiFi connection was not stable. Connection in the living room was ok but just behind the wall in the bedroom it worked slowly or didn't work at all.
2. Would love to have some fish at breakfast. I am not asking about wide variety at breakfast in London. We have stayed at many 4 and couple of 5 stars hotels in London and every time the same: sausage, ham, beans, potatoes two types of cheese. Anyway for London breakfast was 4 of 5.
All in all we loved this place and recommend it for others.

Room Tip: Ask for the room City view to Westminster.

Dear Eriks S,

Thank you for your review of your recent stay at the DoubleTree Westminster. We appreciate you taking the time to share feedback of your experience with the TripAdvisor Community, and are very pleased to see that you enjoyed your visit and liked the view from your room.

Your feedback is important to us as it highlights areas of our service in which we can improve, and I have forwarded your comments regarding the addition of fish to our breakfast menu to our Food & Beverage Manager for further consideration. Thank you for bringing this to our attention.

I am also sorry to see that the Wi-Fi was poor during your visit. We have recently had some challenges with our signalling router; however, we have been able to identify and isolate the fault, and are working on a long-term resolution to the issue. Thank you for your patience whilst this is being actioned, and please accept my sincere apologies for any inconvenience.

Other than this, I trust that the remainder of your stay was more than satisfactory. We appreciate your loyalty to our Brand, and look forward to welcoming you back to the DoubleTree Westminster on your next visit to London.

Comfortable hotel very close to westminster.If you like walking its an ideal stopping off spot.Otherwise use taxis ( lined up outside ) there inexpensive when 4 are travelling.Hotel had free lounge for "executive" stays.Which provide free snacks and drinks anytime during waking hours.And alcoholic drinks between 5-7 pm.Nice touch doubletree.Beats the heck out of a cookie on arrival.Rooms a tad small with no drawer space but adequate wardrobe space.Safe for passports etc in cupboard.Comfortable bed all the same.Besides only a place to sleep while your exploring the sights.Bathroom a wet room so be careful not to slip.Just a couple of moans.After arriving back home in Australia found that they had overcharged me on my credit card for items I had paid for in the hotel.Watch out and check your statement carefully.It was a job and a half to get things sorted out via email.But they came through wonderfully.Staff were friendly and plentiful.Breakfast was a farce though.Everyone seemed to come down at the same time and threw the staff into disarray.But the food was worth the wait.I think! cramped dining room.Ok if inthe don't mind sharing your meal with complete strangers elbow to elbow!Memorable.

Room Tip: Be patient with the staff.Upgrade if your not happy with standard room.And watch for overcharging.

This was our first trip to London. We wanted somewhere central to most of Londons attractions and this hotel was in a great location just behind MI5 headquarters.

We arrived at 6:20am on a Saturday after 29 hours on a plane so the facy that our room was ready was fantastic. We had a room on 10th floor with great views.

Bed was comfortable and room had everything we needed except the fridge did not work.

Hotel breakfast was great and the hotel had easy access to underground and the Thames

Staff were great and there was always cabs outside.

Pre book thinking I would get a good deal in London. Upgraded on arrival for Executive treats, like Marriott Executive Club, with free hot snacks upto 9pm. Wrong - Double tree only do 5.30 to 7.30pm. Exec Lounge was bare not as welcoming as Marriott. Retired room - no bath, shower like Travel Lodge. Mac PC replaced computer TV. Intranet Slow as was WiFi. Went to bed, kept awake by noisy extraction fan. Fridge fall off it mounts. Desk socket broken. Experience felt short changed with a disinterested receptionist more interest in fixing room not Customer
