We've stayed at the Admiral several times and we always love it. It is in a great location on Thames - near the main drag but quieter. Our favorite room is #19 which has a small roof deck (private for your use, although it is adjacent to another room's deck and near a common roof deck) with a nice view of the harbor area and a great place to watch the sunset with a drink. The room is nice...only complaint is the bathroom mirror is very low due to an angled wall above it (they give you a stool to use if you get tired of squatting!). The room is a little more expensive but worth it for the roof deck. Otherwise, try using the common roof deck.
Staff is friendly and helpful. Breakfast is just a continental breakfast (no hot food) but it is good.
If you stay there, try eating at Scales and Shells which just a few blocks away. Excellent seafood pastas served in a frying plan!
