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.

Reviews for The Royal Horseguards
The Royal Horseguards is in a fantastic location to see most of the major sites in downtown London. Transportation is easy to get to as well. The hotel is very posh and worth the visit, even for a meal in the 1212.

For the price and the star rating of this hotel I was deeply disappointed to say the least, service was none existent and the staff most of the time had no idea what they where even doing. Only the Barman, Conciege and the one manager ( fairly new guy) made any effort to improve our stay !!
The hotel is located well within walking distance to Piccadilly Square and Trafalgar Square and test slightly away from the main hustle bustle of the street and tons of tourist. The check-in staff and bell staff were excellent and very knowledgeable including the concierge was very good at getting good restaurant bookings. The breakfast whist your traditional English fare as most 5 star hotels, the service was excellent and attentive to our breakfast needs. The rooms though a bit dated, was not too bad and the balcony views are very good. In addition it was also easy to walk to Regent's Park for an afternoon/evening stroll.

The Horseguards is conveniently located for Parliament Square, Trafalgar Square, St. James Park, all very walkable. Several tube stations are Embankment, Charing Cross, and Leicester, although the latter is a bit farther away. You can get to this hotel from Heathrow by taking the Piccadilly line to South Kensington and changing to the District Line (green or yellow line) to Embankment. Very convenient. The lobby is really beautiful and I love the historic paintings even though I suspect they are reproductions. The rooms are spacious and modern with US-110v lines. Very quiet for a good night's sleep. My only complaints: Afternoon tea should be free considering the cost. Second, the staff did not know the name or location of restaurants that are close by. Otherwise, I would definitely stay here again.

In a great central location with many interesting sights to see and things to do within walking distance. Very friendly and helpful staff, easy and quick check in. Very nice room, clean and a lovely big comfy bed. The building and ambiance is wonderful. One of the best
