Threadneedles, Autograph Collection by Marriott
What We Love
- Victorian neoclassical architecture: magnificent stained glass dome, Corinthian columns, decorative mouldings
- The location in London’s Square Mile
- The Deluxe Rooms on the fifth floor are an affordable alternative to the Terrace Penthouse
- Treating yourself to a gourmet dinner of Maldon oysters and classic Wheeler’s fish pie in the excellent restaurant
What To Know
- The hotel opened in 2002 and feels more Noughties than state-of-the-art, although it’s better equipped than many boutique properties
- This is a quiet and discreet hotel rather than a hip and happening one
- The sound of plumbing from other rooms can be a little intrusive
- The corridors, punctuated by one fire door after another, are on the claustrophobic side
- Free WiFi
- Handicap Accessible
- Parking On Site
In a beautiful, meticulously restored Victorian banking hall in the heart of the ancient City of London, staying at Threadneedles will give you a completely different view of the capital. Steps away from St. Paul’s Cathedral, one of the city’s most iconic buildings, and equidistant from the West End and trendy East London, it’s perfectly positioned for sightseeing by day and bar-hopping at night. Interiors are impressively grand and packed full of original features like the lobby’s stained-glass, domed ceiling in the lobby. While bedrooms are quirky (think huge prints of London streets hanging above the beds), the Wheeler’s Oyster Bar & Grill Room from Marco Pierre White, one of Britain’s long-standing and best-loved chefs – is a chic space worthy of attention, with high ceilings and a menu of mouthwatering fish and oyster dishes as well as rarefied classics like shepherd’s pie.
In the Area
Threadneedles Hotel places you in one of London’s oldest and most historic areas, the financial district, in the heart of the City of London. Just a five-minute walk from the Bank of England, ten minutes from St. Paul’s Cathedral, and 15 minutes from The Tower of London, you’re surrounded by some of the capital’s most iconic sites. Head over to Old Spitalfields Market, a mere 10 minutes away on foot, for some bargain fashion buys, or walk across the Millennium Bridge to Borough Market for produce, flowers, vintage gifts, and great people watching. Stick around the area to take in an exhibition at Tate Modern. Your nearest tube station from the hotel is Bank, a four-minute walk, followed by Liverpool Street, seven minutes away on foot.
How to Get There
This is a wonderful hotel brilliantly located close to Bank station and ideal for accessing all of the major sites. I stayed here on a business trip, the room was fantastic as was the service. I highly recommend it.
Booked a weekend stay through an offers web site. As you walk in you can see the opulent grandeur of a bygone age. An old city banking hall converted into a stunning atrium seating are for the hotel. The room was spacious, well appointed and very very comfortable. The staff were really really attentive and efficient and gave a great first impression. This is the only hotel in London that I have stayed in that asked me if they could assist with our onward transport!
We had a great nights sleep and the room facilities are excellent. The breakfast was very good and served in a fabulous restaurant setting. All in all this is one of the nicest hotels I have stayed in in central London. Recommended
First time at wheelers and we did not leave disappointed. A wonderful evening from start to finish where we took advantage of everything on offer.
The atmosphere is surprising relaxed and not intimidating.
The food was first class as you would expect.
