We started our morning with an early 5:30 wake up call to catch our flight to London. We narrowly caught the flight, as there was a minor disagreement between us and the airport staff as to what constitutes a liquid for purposes of fitting those items into a plastic bag. After that was resolved, we caught a short flight and began our journey into …

We landed on Sunday evening to the Gatwick airport just south of London [Side Note from a Nerd: Gatwick Airport is located in a city named Crawley - This just so happens to be the same town where Robert Smith was brought up]. To get to the city center, we took the Gatwick Express and then made our way to the hotel via a taxi which was just around …
Let's see - we hung out at the Westminster Abbey, Houses of Parliament, and went to the British Museum. Rachel: Well, our last day in London. We went to Westminster Abby, Big Ben, house of Parliament and the British Museum. The museum was huge, every culture and time period you could possibly think of, even mummies, it was amazing.

How has this hotel rated in the past?
We were fresh off the Underground arriving at the Crowne Plaza in Kensington. What a delight it was to have such outstanding service from holding our bags while we went out and toured London to a speedy checkin once we returned.
Plus, the rooms were very modern and filled with some really great amenities. I would highly recommend to any travelers to London!

Good Rooms..indifferent service
Good sized, clean and modern rooms and great location. Lots of multi-national staff working hear talking in broken english which made being understood a little difficult at times.
No car park at the hotel, you have to use a public one some 2 minute wlak away. This is cheap at weekends after 1pm but £2.50 per hour during the week and until 1pm on Saturday...so be warned!
Buffett breakfast was nothing to get excited about
Next to subway station, do not match up to a 5-star
We booked thru Intercontinental site. But this is more like a standard 3/4star buisness hotel. Leisure travellers may find the area very quiet over the weekend or at night. From Heathrow airport, no need to take the expensive black cab orHeathrow express. Take the picadilly line with one change at Hammersmith to circle line. convenient. Right next to the Blackfriars Subway stn exit. that's the only plus and close to St. Paul Cathedral.
The room is standard basic, no view. As for cleaniness, not even up to a 4- star. Bath with soap scum.
Unless you get a good deal. More desirable for business travellers than leisure.
Excellent for business travellers
I recently stayed at the Crowne Plaza for a business trip and found the hotel excellent, though I did not eat there.
The room was upgraded to a double double and was very large and comfortable. The decor was very pleasing and the standard of cleanliness was very high. The soundproofing was good so the traffic noise was not disturbing.
The hotel staff were polite and helpful.
I have returned and stayed again for a further business trip.
This hotel is really a modern, sleek jewel built in the shell of an early 20th century building and on the site of Henry VIII's Bridewell Palace. Right beside Blackfriars tube (District/Circle lines), so great location even for tourists as easy access everywhere. You are a short walk to St Paul's Cathedral, and the gorgeously renovated Paternoster Square with smart restaurants and bars and you are adjacent to the Thames too and its pedestrian paths.
On the plus side, the hotel is in a great location - practically next to the Blackfriars tube station and about 2 1/2 blocks from St. Paul's Cathedral. It's also within walking distance to the Tate Modern and the London Eye.
Stayed at this hotel on a Saturday night having got a good deal.
Stayed at this hotel for one night. Was surprised by the size of the room, a lot bigger than i thought it would be. We were lucky to have a corner room which had two full walls of windows which made it lovely and light. Very modern room, nice size, comfortable bed, and nice bathroom. We arrived earlier than check in time and we were just hoping to leave our bags at the hotel so we could take a walk around but they had a room free and let us check in then which was very handy.
We didnt eat in the restaurants but we did have room service for our evening meal which was lovely! and not too expensive either, but what you would expect to pay in a hotel.
All in all a lovely stay, the staff were very helpful and the hotel is lovely.
Not a 5 star, place to stay in financial district
The hotel and rooms are very modern. Bedroom had 2 double beds, but pillows were cheap, and don't like duvets!! Has a nice entertainment center and hook-in for computer. Bathroom o.k.
If you are in London for business, then this is the place to stay; not great for tourists. Desk people very nice but know little about the area and where to eat.
Food in restaurants very expensive and ate elsewhere as we had two mediocore sandwiches for about $16 at the deli restaurant.
Outstanding service, the place to stay in London
I recently staid in this hotel and was amazed about the exceptional friendly service ... something you don't always get in London.
The bed was a delight and I seriously considered taking one of their pillows home with me.
Location was ideal for my trip, just a short stroll over the bridge and I was at tate modern and the walks along the Thames were beautiful. I didn't realize that the City of London has so much to offer.
The hotel's bar 606 was exactly what I needed to end a beautiful day exploring London with one of their delicious cocktails.
I will definitely come back. The contemporary design of the hotel is a great alternative to the usual flowery and traditional hotels in London.
