Designed by Philippe Starck, this modern hotel is geared toward business travelers drawn to the new business hub of Canary Wharf. The ten-story tower houses 142 of the largest rooms and suites in London, many with bang-up river views, with oversize windows and black-walnut furnishings. A small spa offers Organic Pharmacy treatments, and a small fitness room gets the job done, though guests have privileges at the health club next door. The restaurant serves Italian cuisine in a relaxed, informal dining room and al fresco on the terrace overlooking the Thames—making the most of the views that are one of the hotel’s strongest selling points.
In the Area
The hotel was built on West India Quay, formerly the center of England’s spice trade. Now the neighborhood is London’s buzzing new financial district, but there’s more than office towers here: local destinations include the Billingsgate Fish Market, the largest inland fish market in the UK, and Plateau restaurant, which offers monthly wine tastings. Slightly further afield in East London is Bistrotheque, a long-running restaurant that helped shift London’s center of cool to the east.
How to Get There
Just on the way home after an amazing stay at this hotel. We booked for my Mums 80th Birthday and we certainly aren’t disappointed. The staff couldn’t have done more to make our stay memorable. Prosecco, cake and fruit in our rooms on arrival! What a lovely surprise. The views overlooking the Thames are fabulous, sitting on the window seat sipping bubbles..... can’t wait to come back x
Reception staff was welcoming. It was my cousin birthday she loved it. The bedroom was amazing with great river view. The spa was great and relaxing. Requested the full breakfast menu to change to how l wanted it, the chef done it just the way l wanted it was great.
This hotel comes highly recommended. We had a short stay but couldn't find fault with anything. The staff, especially at breakfast were exceptional and we would be happy to book again. It Is a little too far from central London so cab fares are more expensive so be prepared for that but overall it wouldn't put us off from booking again.
From the time we arrived to the time we left we were totally looked after and spoilt . The room was beautiful and very clean as was the whole hotel . The breakfast was great and nothing seemed too much bother . Went to the Big Easy on Fri night and Royal China Sat night and both venues were amazing . Amazing Staff and wouldn't hesitate going there again .
Arrived little early room wasn’t ready but was given free upgrade to an executive suite overlooking the Thames. Read few reviews about people saying it was far to travel to many of the main attractions but it’s literally a 2 minute walk to the ferry taxi terminal which is fantastic value and simple to use. Brilliant hotel very modern not too expensive mini bar was fully stocked and tea and coffee making was complimentary. Staff were fantastic and couldn’t do enough. Free use of gym next door which had a great pool overlooking the Thames. Great stay 💯 recommend
