Top 10 Family Hotels in London
Comfortable, straightforward service combined with extensive facilities.
This DoubleTree is set in one of the most central areas of London --- just next to the Victoria train, coach and underground stations, with immediate access to the Gatwick Express train. This affords guests easy access to Westminster Abbey, the Houses of Parliament, Trafalgar Square, Soho and the Tate Gallery, as well as many of the city's main commercial areas. The bright, elegant style of the rooms is one of the hotel's biggest draws. Rich gold, violet and cream hues are offset by strong oak wood finishes, modern art and plenty of daylight. Most importantly, the beds are springy and comfortable with lots of pillows. Bathrooms are huge, with deep, full-size bathtubs. Perks include air-conditioning, flat screen TVs and complimentary Wi-Fi. After a hectic day of sightseeing or work, kick back downstairs at the hotel's gym, complete with a full fitness area, indoor pool and sauna. Note that as the hotel is located on a side street close to Victoria Station, certain rooms can occasionally turn noisy, so if you need a good night's sleep, make sure you ask for a quiet room. A great little-known offer: the hotel will match prices at equivalent properties and even throw in an upgrade to an Executive Suite.
