We had a very pleasant and relaxing experience at this hotel. What struck us most against other hotels within the group was the "UNFAMILIARITY". In the main the service was professional, staff appearing genuinely friendly and discreet. Before we set off I requested a view of the Thames, we were so pleased that this came to fruition. The windows were... More

Most London visitors think that Baker Street is the center of Sherlock Holmes's London, but it is not. THE MAPPED LONDON OF SHERLOCK HOLMES book indicates that there are more Sherlockian sites near the Charing Cross and Embankment Tube Stations than any other place in London.

Staying in Westminster

Neighbourhood Profile
Westminster
If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square, and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just up the road as well. As captivating as the architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are highlights of the area too. St James's Park (arguably London's loveliest), the expansive Green Park, and pedestrian friendly tree lined paths along the river showcase the exquisite manicure provided by English gardeners. Just beyond the landmarks and the gorgeous outdoor spaces, quiet residential squares and age old local pubs offer a more subdued take on this global seat of power in the heart of London.
