Excellent location, great staff, old systems that need replacement, especially the heating and air conditioning systems. Get breakfast with your package, it was excellent and very expensive a la carte. Have the staff male all your reservations, they are excellent.

This hotel was wonderful and pretty reasonably priced for being right in the middle of London, walking distance to everything touristy. We were greeted by a very kind doorman who jumped into action when he saw I had a sleeping child in my arms, before I even had the chance to grab luggage he grabbed it for me. The room...

My husband and I love this hotel, very well located, nice service and customer oriented personal. Rooms are clear and some of them with a very good view of their garden in the center of the building. I strongly recommend it.

Stayed here last night for our 30th wedding anniversary. Lovely welcome and all extremely comfortable. Some furniture, particularly in the breakfast area was very worn and tatty. Breakfast was also just ok for me considering the price.

Easy walking distance to the Thames, Westminster Abbey, Parliament square, Buckingham Palace, and nice pubs and restaurants. The hotel is outstanding, the staff were marvelous. Our tour company even picked us up at the door.

As I would expect from the Taj group, we had a warm and professional welcome. Because our room wasn't ready when we arrived we were immediately upgraded to a suite, which was gorgeous and most appreciated.

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.
