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.

We stayed for 3 nights at a discounted rate, but our room and the service we received was first class. The hotel is close to the tube and in short walking distance to places of interest such as Trafalgar Square, and Westminster.

A comfortable and relatively luxurious hotel in the heart of Westminster within easy walking distance of many of the theatres, restaurants and significant sights. The staff are always friendly, knowledgeable and efficient and the quality of the accommodation is first rate. Many rooms have river views. A comfortable and convenient base for most purposes in London.

This hotel is a amazing. On the Thames River, and a short walk over it to the London Eye and all those attractions, as well as a skip and a hop to the Waterloo station, palaces, Trafalgar Square - everything you want when you first visit this city. Parking overnight was outrageously priced, so if you’re driving, consider dumping the car as you won’t need it during this leg of your trip anyway. Everything in the mini bar is included fo you, and even if you use the DND sign, you will find a bottle of water just outside your door in the evening. The bathrooms and rooms are spacious, and the little bar inside is a lot of fun. Make sure, if you enjoy cocktails, to try one of their signature gin drinks - they don’t taste like gin at all. Compared to other, luxury hotels, this is one of my favorites, full of charm, history, and it outdoes it’s pricier competition close by.

We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and had booked a King room overlooking the river. We arrived a little early but our room was ready and we were taken up to our room. On the third floor it was a little low down to get a river view but we had a lovely view of the park and the room was spacious, very clean, and felt luxurious with a very comfortable bed and high quality bedding. Complimentary soft drinks were included. We were delighted with the extras to make our celebration feel special - thank you so much. We enjoyed the extensive hot and cold breakfast choices and the good coffee. The service at the hotel was first class throughout - from reception, concierge, porters, waiting staff. We hope to return for the next celebration!

Let me begin by saying the staff at this hotel is amazing. They are friendly, polite and willing to go beyond expectations to satisfy guests. We would definitely stay here again, but beware of the promises of the website! We booked the Double Room, River View that offers rooms with a view of the Thames and London Eye. The only glimpse we had from 636 of either was the top few cars of the Eye at night when they were lit up. See picture below - nothing but trees! A month earlier the view would have been better; inquire about the view when you arrive. The website boasts: Delight in the extra luxury touch of a complimentary minibar and enjoy an array of refreshments. The COMPLIMENTARY minibar only happened 3 times in a 9 night stay (small bottle of white and red wine), as did the ARRAY of refreshments (twice an individual bag of chips and a small chocolate bar, once just the chips). If it's not advertised we don't expect it - but it was. And we did. The website also boasts about the in-shower TV, but doesn't mention the fact that the tub is a high hip-breaker that can be a struggle to get into, or that once in you will have a challenge trying to shower under the delightful rainshower while you wrestle with the shower curtain wrapping itself around you the entire time. Why a curtain instead of a door?
