Great services at a moderate pricePosted Sep 23, 2014
We stayed here for a single night in a king size room. The best thing was all the additional services (iMac and free wifi, left luggage, concierge and a GREAT bar at Skylounge.) Room was clean and comfortable. Location good for morning strolls in the city. Will definitely book this hotel again.

Quiet hotel in great locationPosted Sep 20, 2014
Pros: The roof terrace is a great place to enjoy the view and atmosphere. Also it is only a minutes walk from a tube station.
Location: Two minutes walk to the Tower of London, and Tower Bridge, and five minutes to St Katherine's Dock, which has several bars and restaurants.
I only spent one night here, but found it to be excellent, and would return. Staff were friendly, bed was very comfortable, and as it is not on a main road, there was little traffic noise. There is construction going on very close by, but it did not disturb us.

Not up to published standardsPosted Sep 16, 2014
Pros: Cleaning staff was polite and efficient.
Cons: Customer service & understanding that not all your guests are business folks.And although I like honor programs, I don't want any guest treated poorly
Location: Tower of London only!
Our experience at the Double Tree London was quite poor. Starting with the recommendations and information on Expedia. This is the first time we used Expedia to plan a vacation and I am a Hilton Honors member so when the hotel was recommended we didn't think twice to investigate further. Our mistake. First in Expedia it talks about great location, easy access, and great staff. Well could not be more further from the truth. No mention of all the construction around the hotel that makes access difficult, not to mention the noise. Location, within walking distance of the Tower of London, true, but no other sites in London. This added lots of time and expense. And the staff, well let's just say that Honors members count more. I know at the beginning I mentioned I am a honors member. However on this visit it was not on my reservation and I am glad because I got to see how everyday guests get treated. We traveled a long way to London, got there around noon and was rudely told that no rooms would be available until check in time at 3pm. No place for us to rest or relax. So we sat in the lobby, exhausted and tried to rest, waiting for our room so we can sleep for a while. However while watching the front desk keys seem to be going out. All us business travelers know that when rooms become available rooms are given out. After watching I decided to approach the desk again. Again getting rude treatment to wait. I asked if my honors number was on the reservation, got a room.

Worst experience at check-in.Too much constructionPosted Sep 15, 2014
The area has mass quantities of construction workers. No view of the Tower except for Sky a Tower floor and when I tried to take in the sites at 10:05p the muscle man that worked there guarding the door said sorry it closes at 10:00. Really? I would like to know why he couldn't slide the door open but gave no reason and that's after the staff told me to go out there and enjoy the sites. Real messed up. Like I also said before it was the worst possible check in. Nobody knew what was going on. Too many rude guests waiting in lobby for some competition thing in town. One guest yelled at me because she approached the counter when I was told to get something out of my luggage that my daughter was watching. I saw her and said excuse me because all my vital and personal info and passport were left there out on counter. Guest was very rude and said "well the staff called me over". We got in a tiff and then it was all downhill from there. I had to call housekeeping 3-4 times. There was a problem with the bill but they did correct it. Eh for the price I would not recommend this hotel. The selling point would have been the view but with no view and all the business people in a rush pushing their way through town and all the construction, NO.

Excellent Hotel near Tower of LondonPosted Sep 12, 2014
Excellent Hotel near Tower of London, clean comfortable, very helpful staff, nice size rooms. Close to river transportation, trains, underground, etc. Loved the Sky Lounge, great place to watch the sun go down over London.

Great Location For Tower of London and FinancialPosted Sep 12, 2014
Pros: Most of the staff. Comfortable, quiet room. LOCATION!
Cons: One barperson was horrible.
Location: Tower of London 3 mins Underground station 1 min Monument 15 mins Restaurants
Almost everything about this hotel was good. Felt let down by one staff member but otherwise a great place to stay. You are in the heart of the financial district and yet only a 3 minute walk to the Tower of London. The views from the top are great (on a clear day). Location, service and facilities are very goodt. My visit was let down by one staff member who didn't seem to think that the guy not wearing a suit was not important. Because of that I went out and ate elsewhere. Everyone else was friendly and treated me well. Having a tube station just 1 minute away is fantastic. So is being able to go on a Thames cruise from a point just 5 mins from the hotel. Overall I was very, very happy and would recommend to both family and to business colleagues.
