Visit Europe in the spring for warm days and cool nights. Summer brings longer days and lovely weather, but can be busy; August is when locals escape for their annual holiday. Fall in Europe brings the changing colors and fewer crowds. Winter is best for avid skiers and bargain hunters.
Peak Season: Most visitors from the U.S. explore Europe in the spring and summer months. Early fall tends to be busy in popular convention areas, and rates can be higher during this time.
Value Season: Winter and early spring see fewer travelers, and can be a great time to visit if you're looking for discounted flights and hotel rates.
Nothing crazy about the room. Not a big deal though since it was just one night. Actually had an issue with the drain in the shower but they came and fixed it within 10 minutes. Great breakfast selection. Close proximity to a lot of things.
Considering we arrived just after lockdown was lifted this hotel was perfect. The room had an amazing view of London and the room was perfect. The staff were lovely and overall the hotel made the trip even better. Thank you!!
I always stay here when I come to London on business. The location can't be beat - near tube, walk to theatre and National Gallery. The hotel's staff are very accomodating, especially Mathew, who was very friendly and efficient. The restaurant is lovely and a nice place to schedule business meetings ...
An overnight stay after a flight in to Manchester Airport. A chance to have a few drinks & meal in the city.
Location is great. Got a free ugrade and got a room with a view of the TV tower. Breakfast was good lots of variety, room was comfy staff was friendly and helpful. Except for the concierge guy who recommended the worst Hop om hop off bus that was very expensive compared to others. Also was dissapointed ...
The staff were very accommodating during the disruption of the pandemic in Europe caused our plans to change. It was a welcome relief to have such understanding and made the stay all the more enjoyable despite the uncertainties surrounding us.
