Had a lovely weekend stay with husband and two teenage children. Booked two rooms and hotel staff did their best to get rooms near each other. Rooms were lovely and big, big surprise for London, stayed in tiny rooms in the past. The bed was large and very comfy. Nice and quiet room. Lovely choice of breakfast in the morning. We didn't eat an evening meal there but did have a nice drink in the bar. Walking distance to Houses of Parliament and London eye, lovely walk along the river. About 5/10 mins from there and Vauxhall tube station.
It may have been expensive but a night here was worth every penny. Floor to ceiling windows in all rooms giving clear views across London. Even provide a set of binoculas to spot the distant landmarks. Room fixtures and fittings were excellent although the glass shower room was definately for the exhibitionists fortunately we were on the 49th Floor so not overlooked!! (Seriously you can shut the blinds, but you lose the view).
The Gong bar was nice but expensive.
Pool on the 52nd floor was small but had the best view of London.
