I stayed at this property while trying to get a flight back to Canada. The staff could not be more helpful and the service was excellent. The hotel is located in Docklands and is perfectly situated to a number of transportation options including Royal Victoria station, the Emirates Cable Car and the Thames Clipper.

This is a beautiful well maintained property in a cool location in Docklands. The staff in the hotel were outstanding. I needed to stay here for three days during the pandemic in order to get back to Canada. The staff were amazing and understanding. I will support this hotel chain in the future.
