Few hotels in the world are housed in such a grandiose building. After lengthy renovations, what was once the headquarters of the Port of London Authority—a palatial Beaux-Arts structure featuring Corinthian columns and a tower with an elaborate sculpture of Old Father Thames—is now London’s second Four Seasons. Teams of experts restored the original limestone facade, plasterwork, wood carvings, and marble floors and helped re-create a stunning rotunda near the entrance, which had been destroyed during World War II. The domed ceiling, illuminated by recessed light rings, helps set the sophisticated scene at the lobby lounge and bar, a perfect spot for an aperitivo before dinner at hot spot Le Dame De Pic. Run by three-Michelin-starred French chef Anne-Sophie Pic, the leather-and-wood space prepares locally sourced ingredients like Scottish langoustine, Cornish crab, and Brittany pigeon using Gallic techniques. There’s also a fine Asian restaurant, Mei Ume. The east-meets-west theme continues at the spa, which houses a curvaceous Turkish-style hammam and a sleek 46-foot pool with relaxation nooks. Upstairs, the 100 rooms and suites have a clean look, with soft gray walls and matching upholstered furnishings. Amenities abound; we’re partial to the customizable of pillows and mattress toppers. Good night.
In the Area
Ten Trinity Square is within The City of London, a county that encompasses the city’s main financial district and historic center. Among the area’s must-see sights are the Tower of London, that most infamous of prisons, St Paul’s Cathedral, site of royal weddings, and Tower Bridge, an iconic suspension bridge built in the 1800s. There’s also plenty to see and do on the south side of the Thames. Don’t miss Borough Market, one of the most renowned food markets in the world, set beneath old railway arches near London Bridge and in the shadow of the gothic tower of Southwark Cathedral, and home to longstanding purveyors like the Ginger Pig. A short walk away is the fantastic art museum, Tate Modern, home to a impressive collection of international modern and contemporary art.
How to Get There
Had an incredible stay with my wife, before the birth of our child.
I couldnt recommend this hotel enough. The quality and service of the staff and hotel is 10/10.
Located near london bridge and a stones throw from Shoreditch, the hotel is in the perfect spot for any type of stay.
Fantastic stay. Room was amazing, restaurant was wonderful and the lounge was terrific and the service was amazing. People were so nice and immediately took care of my requests. I ate 3 dinners at the Chinese restaurant and all were great.
Only stayed one night but service was exceptional, including being greeted by the manager who recognised me and wished me happy birthday! Room spotless, furnishing / equipment flawless, service quick and helpful. Restaurant (La Dame de Pic) was at least as fabulous as expected where the food was glorious and the service exceptional (until 10pm when it seemed mysteriously to disappear).
The Tower Hill tube station is within 1 min walking distance from the hotel and very quite at night. Bed is very comfortable. Hotel staffs are knowledgeable and helpful. But it was very busy when taking taxi or drive to Bond Street shopping area, better take the tube.
My daughter treated myself and some friends to afternoon tea for my special birthday. I have visited before and enjoyed but once again, the same problems. Service is so slow, and problems with staff are the same. Some members of staff can hardly speak English and certainly don’t understand drink orders This situation is totally unacceptable in a hotel of this calibre. Fortunately there was one waitress who was always ready to top the champagne up. Management need to take note.
