The Royal Horseguards in London, England

You might still spot politicians enjoying a reprieve from Parliament at The Royal Horseguards. It began life as The National Liberal Club in 1884 and was commandeered by the Ministry of Defense during both world wars to headquarter the M15 and M16, Britain's secret intelligence organizations. After undergoing a full renovation in 2008, sparkling chandeliers and contemporary accents join the oil paintings and rich red and gold furnishings that still retain the air of Westminster.

Stride across manicured lawns to the banks of the River Thames and follow it south. Veer right to walk along St. James's Park. Stare down the stern guards outside Buckingham Palace and give the Queen a nod. Circle back to The Royal Horseguards for afternoon tea and apricot scones on the sunlit terrace. Raise a glass to Churchill at the bar named after him – he was one of The National Liberal Club’s most prominent members.

Very nice hotel with lots of history. Located in prime tourist area, close to Trafalgar, Westminster, Picadelly, arts district. Tub is only 2 blocks away which links you to anywhere you want to go. Room was nice, and incredible washroom. Even has a tv in washrooms. Minibar is also included - but no booze. Water, cola and snacks. Try to get breakfast included. Very nice spread, and enjoy it on the terrace, weather permitting. Highly recommend.

Was in London in early June for 3 days and stayed at Royal Horseguards , Whitehall . Excellent location close to all the attractions - easy to walk around and access Westminster , London Eye , Trafalgar Square etc. Hotel has an old world charm given its historical association and reflected in the interiors as well as the rooms. Nice luxurious room with good facilities. Staff are very courteous and make you feel at ease.Was a very pleasant stay.

We stayed at the Royal Horseguards as part of an airline package, and we were just delighted. We never dreamed that a London hotel of this quality – it is the Thistle chain's top hotel in London -- would be included in a package. Our room and bathroom were not only lovely, but large by London standards, and filled with many unexpected luxuries, from a heated towel rack in the marble bathroom to a bedroom that had reproduction furniture, velvet pillows and sashes, golden mirrors, and a picture window that looked out over the City. The entire hotel has been renovated and has a new fitness center. Located on the eighth floor, the fitness center was well equipped with eight Reebok and Cybex machines, as well as a mat for stretching and a small fridge with bottles of mineral water. A continental breakfast with fruit, croissants, rolls, cereals, cold cheeses and meats was included our package, although most guests enjoyed a full breakfast with eggs, sausages and bacon. This was served in the Hotel's very fine and handsome restaurant, and the wait staff was great about filling my coffee cup. The staff was friendly and attentive, and supplied us with maps, directions and suggestions for restaurants and pubs for lunch. Guests were a mix of British business people, as well as American and German tourists. The hotel, which is on a very quiet block overlooking the Thames and the London Eye ( the kind of giant ferris wheel built for the Millenium celebration). It is an easy walk up to Trafalger Square, the West End theatres, or along the river and down to Big Ben and Westminster Abbey. Of course, a block away, we could see the Changing of the Guard at the Royal Horseguards, and it is much easier to get a clear view of this ritual here, than at Buckingham Palace. The Embankment tube stop is a three-minute walk from the hotel entrance.

My daughter and I stayed at the Royal Horseguards Hotel last month. My mother and I had stayed there 21 years earlier. Both times were most pleasant stays. This time I found the hotel to be as charming and inviting as before. Everyone was so friendly and made us feel most welcome. Each evening my daughter's stuffed animals were arranged on our bed to welcome us for the night. A special shout-out to Sylvia who greeted us each morning for breakfast. After the first day she would greet me by name, offering me a cup of tea. What a wonderful way to start the day! She also took the time to engage my 13 year old daughter. She was lovely. Another shout-out to Ian, who, upon our arrival was able to book two teas and reserve tickets to a West End show that we enjoyed enormously-- all of this in about 5 minutes! I could see we were in good hands. I highly recommend the Royal Horseguards Hotel! In fact, my sister and husband will be staying there next spring.
