Mom and I took a black taxi over to the show Wicked and had a great time. I never new that Glenda the good witch was such a manipulative *****/witch. We grabbed a taxi and headed back to our amazing hotel The Andaz, which I have to say Kerrin did a great job of communicating to the hotels that this was our 25anniversary trip and we have been …
This morning was to be Buckingham Palace and changing of the guard. However, got ourselves to the palace gates and discovered a different ceremony taking place. The start of the Commonwealth games baton relay. Some dignitaries spoke, flags brought in, the baton arrived, then the Queen walked out of her front door with Duke of Edinburgh!
Enjoyed a lovely lunch at Browns, Butlers Wharf with my cousins. Most ...

Sunday the 25th of August - We made good time apparently, which meant more time waiting for our next plane in Copenhagen. Their airport isn’t terribly big and we were a little confused about how much things cost. Terribly expensive in their currency but not so bad in Euros. This didn’t, however, stop us having a Budweiser. One ear refused to do the popping thing and kept making huge crackling noises. ...
... at our flat, we took a packed lunch & the children's swimming clothes over to M & H's house & we all headed over to Queen's park which is a lovely green space a short drive away. They have a wonderful children's area that has a very large sand pit, a small swimming pool, swings & a couple large climbing structures & it is all fenced in. Once at the park we found a place to land for lunch & then ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Andaz Liverpool Street London
My girlfriend and I stayed one night at the Great Eastern while on a shopping trip in London. Although it was a bit out of the way we got a very good deal and being close to the tube it's hardly a problem to get around.
Sleepless nights, noisy plumbing
OK hotel, clean rooms, but the noisy plumbing is a big negative. Loud enough to wake a guest up from a dead sleep. You will hear it every time your neighbor flushes his/her toilet and uses the sink or shower. The toilets flush like the toilets on an aircraft.
Although I've always liked the look of this hotel, it's out of my budget.
I stayed at the Great Eastern for 3 nights in September and I liked the mix of new with old. Decoration is stylish throughout but a bit worn in places (in my room there were very visible stratches on the dark wooden floor). Service was excellent - I did not like the room I was given at first (which window faced a wall) and as soon as I complained I was promptly moved without argument to a room on the street side. I liked the fact you could borrow CDs and DVDs (without extra charge) from a very long list of choices. I also thought it was well located (right above Liverpool Street Station) for anyone who has business to do in the City. However at about £270 a night this was an expensive stay and I cannot say it was worth that much. I cannot afford to stay there again, but if your company is paying, well by all means go ahead, although I think that for a similar amount of money, the Threadneedles hotel nearby would be a better choice for those who want something smaller and with a more homely feel.
Well - the entrance was fine - no 'wow' factor as I might have hoped from a Conran place. Booked that afternoon over the web and got a great deal including champagne and fabby bath products to take home, had a chat to the guy in reservations - they were expecting us and would put us in a great room. Got to reception - no they hadn't got our reservation, no they weren't expecting us. Explained about the room, the deal, the conversations with the reservations guy. Finally got a room sorted. The view from the 6th floor is great - both down to the lounge area and down the spiral (think New York Guggenheim) stairs. Room nice, spacious for a 'king size' room. Great bed and bed linen. Great view of the Gherkin, Lloyds building from the porthole windows. Relaxed, waited for the bubbly to arrive....waited more....got thirsty. Finally called down to reception....waited some more.....eventually it arrived about 20 mins before we were due to go out for dinner. Guest services did a sterling job trying to book us a table at a good local restaurant on a sat nite at the last minute so thumbs up there. A/c reasonably quiet. Disconcertingly loud vaccum pump whilst having a shower - sounded like a closet door sliding open and closed every minute. The shower wanes slightly hot and cold - again not quite a luxury experience but a decent, powerful shower. Got up lateish (check out time 12.00). Called down as promised goodie bag hadn't arrived (definitely don't like to have to ask for stuff that is part of the deal but not delivered). Was told it would be delivered to our room. Waited...and waited..... and waited. Got bored, decided to check out. Told guy in reception goodies hadn't arrived - he told me to take a seat and wait. So I did ....... finally left around 30 mins later without luxury promised goodies. The moral of the story at GEH is: rooms nice, weekend rates nice....just don't expect them to get their act together and actually deliver on stuff they promised tho'. Would I trust them with - say an overnight dryclean that I needed the next morning - nope, not after that. Would I recommend them - only if all you want is a contemporary place to sleep in the city - certainly not for service.
I love the GEH. I live in London yet in the past year have stayed there 4 times - the place is stunning.
This is our second evening here at GEH and upon arrival yesterday we were "blown" away by the wonderfully furnished and decorated interior.
Great suites, comfortable beds
Recently spent 4 nights here. Spacious room on the 3rd floor. Only quirk was there wasn't a separate shower from the tub and stepping out was tricky with no bar to hold onto. The bedding was wonderful and mattress was firm. Interesting blend of new touches in an old building.
Location next to Liverpool station is excellent for those who need to hail a taxi or take the Tube.
Comfort and Style
I visited the GEH twice in the last 24 month. Both times I was very impressed with the clean, comfortable surroundings. The room was small but extremely comfortable with a great bathroom. This is the perfect business hotel for the upwardly mobile executive on the move, and the vacation traveler looking for a hip place to crash while in London.
What a shame
having just spent 3 nights at the hotel i find it amazing that such a hotel with a good reputation would allow rave nights debbie harry singing ( i guess miming at her age)
after a trip to the theatre we were greeted by 1,600 cross dressers head bangers drug takers to mention a few the music was so loud you could hear it on the 5th floor ,this went on until after 2.30 all i can say is it will be a long time before i visit again and am surprised at mr conran for allowing such nights
