Arrival Experience: Just steps from the DLR station and a five-minute walk from the Canary Wharf Tube station, guests are at the front desk in no time. The hotel is in the heart of the city’s financial center and within close proximity of London City airport. The concierge desk to the left and friendly reception team are ready to assist the second guests pass through the revolving door. Small conversation areas are available in the form of leather sofas and armchairs.
Dining: A lobby bar entertains guests nightly, and its aquarium countertop is especially interesting. The main lobby level restaurant proffers exceptional views of the street and serves three meals a day. Buffet breakfast includes everything from quintessential British favorites to a made-to-order omelet station. Lunch and dinner offer a more continental menu, and this corporate neighborhood is likely to see many business folk from area offices grabbing a drink or meal at this fine restaurant.
Rooms: Guest rooms are exact replicas of Hilton’s global offering. Soft carpeting leads guests to pillowtop mattresses and thick pillows that will lull jetlagged arrivals into sleep. Alarm clocks and adjustable reading lights are nice additions. Large work desks feature international power outlets, task lighting, rolling desk chairs, and free wireless Internet access for those that book through an official Hilton channel. Complimentary bottled water, hot water kettles, safes, and minibars are in all rooms. Executive accommodations on the top few floors come with extras like turndown service, large toiletries, and access to a lounge for complimentary breakfast, all-day drinks, afternoon tea, and evening happy hour with free cocktails and a dinner buffet. Junior suites are situated in the corner areas of the building and add living space with an extra flat-screen cable TV.
Amenities: The fitness center is well-equipped and popular with guests, but there is no swimming pool here. Meeting space is plentiful and popular with area corporate groups. The staff speaks multiple languages, and the personalization for repeat guests is above the charts in this competitive area of town. Hilton London Canary Wharf offers a reliable, friendly, and contemporary space for guests to enjoy during their visit to London.
