Had a big day today!
Left early and went to St Paul's and had a wander around, then found the Monument. This was made by Christopher Wren to commemorate the Great Fire of London and is a very tall tower that if you laid it down the top would be on the spot where the fire started in Pudding Lane. Perhaps foolishly we decided to climb to the top - 311 steps up a very narrow spiral staircase. The view was great but the ...
Day two in London began with a nice English breakfast in our hotel where Tori and I stocked up on fruit ... And we also took a cute mini jar of English honey. Speaking of free things, we decided to go look in the gym where we saw water bottles so stocked up our room and bags with those as well.
We met the tour guide ,Simon, in the lobby where we then we're provided with FM systems for the tour. Simon was very knowledgeable ...
... had already started drinking at the hostel with 2 Aussies so we decided to just tag along.
And lets just say one thing led to another and me and another girl ended up pretty hardcore drunk by like 1am...and we had to catch a flight at 6am to Dublin!!
But the guy working the Hostel, although kinda creepy, was also really nice and saw that we were in no condition to be trekking the London street in the middle of the night and told us to sleep in a bit more ( ...
... Me: “One lump or two??!”
The train took us to Manchester airport after changing at Deansgate. The short flight to Heathrow airport was uneventful, flying with 'Little Red’, Virgin’s domestic and short haul arm of the company.
Although we were flying to Heathrow for an onward flight to Dubai, we did not check in all the way through to our final destination. There was a simple explanation for this. Roisin didn't want a paper ...
... also a UWM student. We are kindred spirits. We discovered we're in the same Art and Society class, w00t. Also, realized I was sent a tentative schedule (srsly Tara, be more organized), and I only have class Tuesday through Thursday. I'll take it, yo.
Apparently you have to be extremely punctual here. I'm scared for myself.
Maybe I'll come back home, and my parents will ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Jumeirah Lowndes Hotel London
I stayed at the Lowndes the week of Thanksgiving and booked through BA. I asked for and received a room overlooking the street. The closest tube stop is about a three minute, three block walk past the front entrance of Harvey Nichols.
My husband and I stayed here for five nights in early November 2004 and found the hotel wonder. We booked through the British Airways website and the price was great for a London hotel. The rooms are a very good size...for a London hotel. The concierges are GREAT. The only issue was the hotel restaurant. The breakfast was the full English breakfast was included in our package that would of cost about $30.00 each and the service was very poor. They had a hard time getting our order correct. Improvements need be made to the restaurant service. Overall, I would highly recommend this hotel.
My wife and I chose this hotel largely due to the rave Trip Advisor reviews.
I stayed at the Lowndes for three nights in May. I am from England so I know how much the hotels can vary in quality. Since we arrived early at Heathrow from the US we reached the hotel by about 9:00am. Without a second thought we were checked in which gave us an opportunity to rest. Our room was clean and comfortable and all the staff did an excellent job and very helpful. The hotel is centrally located to all main attractions. I would not hesitate to stay there again and would highly recommend it.
My daughter and I just returned from a week holiday in London, where we stayed at 2 different hotels. Our first hotel was the Lowndes, which we thoroughly enjoyed. The hotel is quaint and located in a quiet beautiful residential neighborhood, walking distance to all the "chic" shopping (Harrods, Harvey Nichols, Gucci, Laura Ashley. etc). The service was great and the Citronelle restaurant served a wonderful full breakfast, which was included in our rate. The beds were very comfortable with white soft duvets, and the room tastefully decorated.
I've stayed in the Lowndes twice. I travel alone, and feel very safe here. The staff is very friendly and helpful. It is a 5-minute walk from the tube or bus, and at night this can be a little scary because there are few pedestrians. But, that's only in my mind because I'm a New Yorker -- I've never had reason to be scared there. It's a very elegant, quiet neighborhood. During the day there's a fabulous food market on the corner and you can keep wonderful things in the room fridge. The Carlton Tower's health club and pool (included with all Lowndes rooms) are really elegant and it's about a one-minute walk to get there -- just a great ending to the day, complete with tart green apples and super-fat robes and slippers. If you can get a balcony room, it's really nice -- but all the rooms are nice. Try and get a bargain with the airlines. Both Delta and BA have specials here.
An elegant oasis
We spent four days at the Lowndes as part of the PBS Friendship tour in November and found it to be everything prior reviews had stated. The rooms were ov average size, but certainly comfortable. The basket of fruit on arrival was a delight. The windows opened for a breeze and scent, but as it is off the beaten path, little noise. Restaurant was excellent, but quite pricey. However there is no dearth of places to eat in London. Easy access to two "tube" stations made travel around the city a breeze. I must mention the two concierge's who were an absolute delight and more helpful than we had reason to expect. We definitely felt welcome and cared for. Definitely a "must return".
A nice small hotel, excellent located. Just a few steps from Harrods.
Very friendly and attentive staff, nice decoration and a reasonable price.
Lowndes a great find!
Great value, great location! Medium size rooms, well appointed with duvet bedding and modern bathrooms. The hotel staff and concierge were very helpful and friendly. Breakfast (which was included with my room rate) was better than experienced at other London hotels. No lukewarm buffet dishes - breakfast is cooked to order. Continental breakfast was also better than elsewhere.Only 3 negatives: 1) hotel restaurant prices were very high 2) pervasive cigarette and cigar smoke in restaurant , lobby and occasionally our room. 3) don't do any foreign currency conversions - their exchange rates are ridiculous - more than 10% off rates you can get elsewhere.
