London Marriott Hotel County Hall

County Hall, Westminster Bridge Rd., London, SE1 7PB, England

This grand hotel on the Thames enjoys perhaps the most iconic view in the city—right next door is the London Eye, and directly across the Thames are the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben. Until the 1980s this building was the seat of London's government, and the public areas are suitably grand, full of pedimented archways, bronze doors, and acres of polished mahogany. All the businesslike bells and whistles you could ever want are available, and many of the warmly decorated, modern rooms enjoy that view.

PROS

  • handy for South Bank arts scene, London Eye, and Westminster
  • great gym
  • good weekend discounts

CONS

  • interior design can be overdone for some tastes
  • rooms facing the river cost extra
  • high summer midweek rates are just ridiculous
