DoubleTree by Hilton London Tower of London

We stayed in a King Executive Room for three nights. Upon check-in, I asked if we could possibly have a room with a nice view, and was told that none of the rooms have a view. That’s a first! Although we were a couple, the room is clearly geared toward a single business person. There is one small skinny closet. There are no drawers in which to store clothing. There is one bedside table. There is a mini bar with a key attached, which is empty. Why bother having a key? The in-room dining has a great selection, yet there is no restaurant within the hotel which serves any of the food listed. The bathroom contains a shower only, but is spacious enough. There is a very nice roof top restaurant, The Sky Lounge, with a fabulous view, but with a pretentious food menu. I recommend visiting for drinks only, and head to the terrace to enjoy the view. There is a separate restaurant attached to the hotel, although not affiliated with the hotel, called The Natural Kitchen. You can sign for your meal, if you bring your room key and photo identification. The breakfast room is bright and the selection plentiful. The Executive Lounge is located on the main floor, and never seemed to be locked, and no one ever checked to see if we were actually staying in an Executive Room. The choice of food is quite limited compared to other Hiltons. The location of the hotel is great, close to many attractions and to the tube. If you are not brave enough to travel on the tube, I highly recommend using Uber rather than a taxi. I took an Uber to Oxford Street to do some shopping, and the price was half of what you would pay in a regular taxi. All-in-all, a decent hotel.
We arrived late morning for a brief two day stay in London. Our bags were left behind by KLM and arrived the next day (GRRR). Antonio at the front desk said our room wasn't ready yet, but brought us to the Honors Room for a late breakfast and relax while we waited. About half hour later he collected us and gave us our room key. He was super nice and VERY accommodating given we were early. I specifically chose this hotel as it was two blocks from Tower Bridge and the Tower of London and the bus hub as well. My daughter and I enjoyed the Sky Bar and took several pictures there.
Our room on the 4th floor faced Pepys Street and was surprisingly quiet, even though construction work on the building across the street was being staged from Pepys Street. A small window in the room opened if we wished for some fresh air. Room and bathroom were clean, although the rug could have seen a better vacuuming. Closet and drawer space was tight for two adults traveling with business clothes for four days.The hotel could definitely use more help at the reception desk. No matter what time of day we passed through the lobby, there was always a line of guests waiting, even if there were three staff members behind the desk.Rooftop bar on the 12th floor has a not-to-be-missed view, but be warned -- drink prices are pretty steep.
Visited for my birthday, booked as a surprise by my wife.On arrival the grand entrance was stunning. Check in was professional and fast. Our room was on the eighth floor and had a great view of the Thames and the Shard. The hotel had provided champagne and pastries with a birthday message in chocolate.In room facilities were excellent and the bed was great. En suite was spotless.Breakfast in the morning was extremely good.Highly recommended
Stayed here for a few nights whilst working in the City. From that perspective, location is great, however not if you want to party in the West End. Standard is probably in excess to that of other DoubleTree that I have stayed in. Staff were fantastic, always helpful, always available.If you stay here, definitely visit their Sky Bar, not cheap, but the views are lovely.My only small gripe would be the TV, they use a Mac, which quite honestly is next to useless.
