Off to dusseldorf tomorrow xx
Today set out to be packed full of things left to see. We started out the day at the Tower of London. I must admit that my expectations were not high but once I got there, I was amazed! We got to actually crawl around in the spaces where queens, kings, etc. were. We saw the Crown Jewels which was impressive enough in itself but the tower as a whole …
Today was pretty amazing! We went to see the Changing of the Guard with a great tour guide. He has us walking with the soldiers as they went to the palace. It was so elogant and you could tell these soldiers were full of pride!! We went to the National Gallery after that. You name it, there was a painting by them. I think my favs were the Degas. …
We have been up for about 30 hours now so I am making this one quick! We arrived safely. Going through the border, etc. was not bad at all. The worst was when we decided to take the Tube from Heathrow to our hotel during rush hour. It was ten times worse than NYC hands down!! We were sardines. We will definitely have another plan for our trip back …
... When I worked there, that's all that was on TV and I happened to become quite a fan of a Dutch player and his team, Arsenal. The player has since left the team because he is a money grubbing piece of poo, but my love and allegiance to Arsenal has continued to grow over the years. Of course, like I assume is common for people watching their favorite team, I always dreamed about one day seeing an Arsenal match live and in person. But, as I was in Thailand ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Doubletree by Hilton Hotel London - Westminster
Clean, fresh and modern
Really relaxing hotel with plenty of neutral colours and soft lighting.
Plasma screen TV, DVD player and CD/Stereo in every room are welcome, luxury touches. Also for those that are looking for an undisturbed nights sleep...all rooms are soundproofed. Highly recommended.
Enjoy your stay in London!
We would like to give very warm recommendation to stay at the City Inn Westminster while your London visit. We stayed two nights in the hotel and we were very pleased by the modern standard, friendly staff and good breakfast. The rooms are standard European size, with a bit small bathrooms. This is compensated by excellent complimentary services like bathrobes, lage towels, DVD films and CDs. The hotel is centrally located 10 minutes walk from Big Benand 30 minutes walk from Oxford street with all shopping facilities.
Excellent Facilities, Staff Seem Eager to Please
Stayed at the City Inn Westminster early December 2004. The hotel is brand new, well designed, and well furnished. After spending weeks in Europe in small, dark rooms it was a breath of fresh air to walk into the light filled and cleanly designed guestrooms. This hotel is just a few blocks from Tate Britain and Westminster. Staff was helpful, but seemed a little raw. I expect they will improve. The hotel had only been open a few weeks. This hotel was perfect for us, BUT if you need a fast paced area filled with restaurants, clubs and shops, this is not your hotel. It was quiet around the hotel. On the up side, the hotel restaurant is quite good.
Trendy, clean and modern
My boyfriend and i came to stay in the Hotel recently for a trip to London. We thought the hotel rooms were lovely, clean and modern with a DVD player, CD Player and plasma screen TV and the bed was so comfy.
The breakfast was great lots of choice with the continental, the staff were very friendly too. the location i thought was good with it only being a short walk along Millbank at the side of the Thames to Westminster or 5 minute walk to Pimlico Tube Station being young we did not mind this. I would definately recommend this hotel to freinds.
What a stylish hotel!
I stayed at the hotel at half term with three friends. The staff were helpful and friendly. The services available were fantastic, free dvd rental,bath robes and much more. I have never had a continental breakfast as great as that one before and probably wont again, until I next visit the city Inn !
City Inn was just my style!
Nov 6-13th, 2003. I just returned from my first trip to London and pleasantly surprised after reading many negative reviews of London hotels. City Inn is very modern with contemporary furnishings. The room was small but well appointed. The bedding was very comfortable and CLEAN! The hotel provides most of the first class amenties at a more reasonable rate. The continental breakfast was quite good and the restuarants were very chic. The hotel staff was pleasant and accommodating though not overly friendly. It is located in a reserved, quite part of London, but very accessible to all the major sites. I would stay there again.
Just returned from a 5 night stay at the City Inn Westminster. Selected hotel as part of the BA package. Was intriqued by a new, high technology hotel. I agree with the previous review ... standard rooms are just that. We ended up upgrading to get a larger room. The entire hotel is new and fresh, however, rooms are small with minimal space to store clothes for any length of stay. But the rooms are comfortable and the staff is exceptionally helpful. Guest services was always very helpful with dinner reservations and booking a few select trips we had in mind. The location for someone that has not been to London prevously is not the best. The walk to Pimlico does take about 8 minutes or so ... not unbearable but a bit lengthy. We did find a short cut side street that did cut down the walk a bit.
This was my fifth trip to London on vacation and this time around I picked the City Inn Westminster, primarily from the British Airways travel brochure which gave them 4 stars. In all honesty the hotel is all of what it is billed as. Don't think for a minute though you'll receive a room with a view of the Thames or Parliment if you go with the all inclusive deal advertised by BA, upon check in I was told that no 'standard' rooms have river views only the suites and another more pricy room offer that. That's why I paid more money for this trip in the first place, but still all was not lost!
Worth the Money
Very nice high tech room, a little smaller than expected. But everything is A1, felt it was well worth the money. Good location.
All in all a good experience, however not for the first time traveller or families. This hotel is ultra modern, located in the heart of the oldest section of London. The rooms are average size with a full selection of amenities, including mini bar, plush terry robes, stereo and satellite TV. This hotel would best accomodate the business traveller as closet space and places to put clothes are at a minimum.
