Christmas!

A travel blog entry by jacob.marsh3 on Dec 23, 2013

London has so many sights to see its hard to decide where to start. We were staying out in the docklands so that we would be closer to work at the O2, but the docklands are not very close to downtown, so every time we wanted to go and do something, we had to go and get on the above ground, and then transfer to the tube to get into the city. We …

... We then walked on the south side of the Thames until we reached Tower Bridge. There is a lot of new construction in this area including a complex "More on Thames" which features some quite modern architecture. We crossed the Thames and then headed past the Tower of London. We then caught the Central line from Tower Hill Station to Oxford Street Circus. Oxford Street is the main shopping precinct of London. We visited various shops and managed to get ...

... changes. It really is not any different than what many white Americans feel. I am used to hearing it in Texas and at one time or another we have all had these types of feelings. I don't condemn the cabbie and have empathy for his attitudes, but the world is changing so we must find ways to accept and adapt. Enough of my brief social commentary. Why do I bring this up, well it kind of ties in with our ...

... and the rest of her party were offloaded including finding all their luggage. Due to security reasons the cabin crew then had identify all remaining passenger hand luggage to ensure no other items were left on board. This delayed the flight for nearly 2 hours while we sat in our seats. Fortunately the new touchscreen entertainment system on-board the A380 kept us all amused. The captain announced that they would try to make ...

... and the Tower of London. The amount of traffic on the River made it seem like just another wide road.

It docked just below the bridge and it was short walk up to the Tower of London's entrance. The Tower itself is impressive but the "beefeaters" and tower staff were even more impressive. the "beafeaters" are old retired military servicemen who live around the Tower, kind of like a retirement home. Not only are they incredibly knowledge about the Tower ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Crowne Plaza London - Docklands

    Lovely hotel

    from

    We stayed at this hotel over the weekend and loved it. Very slick and stylish. Helpful and friendly staff. What can I say. I highly recommend this hotel!

    First class hotel, you cannot get better for the money!

    from

    Me and my partner have stayed at this hotel on 3 seperate occasions and both agree that for the money you really cannot fault this hotel!

    Excellent value!

    from

    We stayed at a double room on 5 th floor from Nov 19-22 for a incrediblt low package rate of 118 for 3 nights! The hotel has lovely interior design and really comfortable beds. There is even a pool and jacuzzi. I would stay there again if a good price is available. The only drawback is the 25 min tube ride from downtown, but I'd say it's worth the effort. The alternative is often a expensive and run-down West End hotel.

    Disappointing

    from

    I too think that this hotel is in a dodgy area - I got off the Docklands Light Railway at the recommended station (Royal Victoria) and could find nobody to ask directions (unmanned/unfriendly locals) and no signage to indicate the way to the Holiday Inn. I eventually headed towards the main road and surprise, surprise, the Holiday Inn was the first building I came to. There is absolutely nothing else in the area and it's on the noisy flightpath to the nearby London City Airport.

    Awful awful awful

    from

    Miles from anywhere, in a dodgy area, right under a flight path and terrible facilties. You have to get the DLR as the tube doesn't even go this far. It is in a horrible area so we asked for a cab at reception to take us the the nearest tube rather than waiting around for the DLR (which is AWFUL). The receptionist laughed at us and said we should walk, ignoring the fact there is NO PAVEMENT for most of the way to the nearest tube station as it is all busy roads. Felt depressed and cut off for the whole stay. Never again.

    Great place to be

    from

    This hotel is brand new very modern with excellent facilities.

    Whilst is on the Docklands the DLR connecting to central london is just 1 min walking so you can get into central london in 20 to 30 minutes.

    Great bar, wireless internet facilities both on the bar and on the first floor.

    The rooms are really amazingly spacious and with a touch of style. I have been staying in both normal and Executive Rooms.

    You can upgrade a room at arrival, and really the executive rooms go an extra mile. Highly recommended.

    I'd stay here if I was you!

    from

    The hotel is quiet, excellently priced, spacious, well equipped, clean and modern. It is also only 2 minutes from the Royal Victoria tube.

    The only reason you should not stay here is if you must be in central London; but with that will come noise, smaller rooms, lower quality @ higher prices. The hotel is only 20 minutes from Tower Hill on the circle line & we found the service on the tube to be excellent.

    We enjoyed the facilities offered by the Hotel and intend using it in the future, if similiar packages are available.

    You must stay here!

    from

    Stayed here last Christmas and last summer and each time the service was 1st class. The hotel is not exactly in the centre of London but just sown the street is a Docklands Light Railway Station where you can get into London in around 20 minutes. The hotel itself is very modern with a really plush check in area. The room I had both times looked over Butlers Wharf and I had a great view of the Millenium Dome. The room we had was very large and spacious with everything you could want, the air conditioning was great as it was boiling last summer!

    Great hotel

    from

    Perfect hotel. Very clean and modern. We stayed in a standard room, the bed was very comfortable, and the bathroom clean and new. Easy to reach by car, safe car park. Although not immediately in central London, there is a train station 2 minutes walk from the hotel, which takes you to the city in about 30 minutes. I would recommend this hotel to everybody and would certainly stay here again if I travel to London.

    Hidden gem for the weekend

    from

    Very modern hotel of a standard far above that usual for a Holiday Inn in the UK. Has a very impressive, modern reception and the bar is great for a late night drink. The restaurant served an excellent steak and staff service throughout was good. The business rooms are clean and in excellent condition being very new. Hotel location isn't great for getting to central London and surrounding area has little to tempt the leisure traveller. Still strongly recommend, also excellent value for money at the weekend as is primarily a business hotel and is quiet on weekend days.
