London Beware! - Commodore Hotel

When I was recently planning my honeymoon in London and Paris, I utilized the Hotel Finder feature in the Fodors Home Page. The Commodore Hotel had a great write-up and was "highly recommended", so I made a reservation and specifically request room 11, which was given rave reviews in the write-up, for our last night in Europe. When we got the hotel not only did we not get #11, even though it was noted on their computer, they put us in a room with two twin beds. Very romantic for a honeymoon!

If you are looking for a romantic hide-away - I would suggest you not book a room at the Commodore!

I too have noticed it is very common (especially in London) to have the twin beds. We travel to England frequently, due to having family there and always try to stay in London our last night. The last time we went we stayed at The President, which was a nice hotel in general, but we too had two twin beds that were not even set up side by side, plust the room wasn't much bigger than the space for the beds. We are going in March and have booked at the St. Giles and specifically asked for a double bed and was told "we can request it, but they usually give us twin beds". Must be some European thing that they don't like to sleep next to each other!!!

Tara - The twin beds were just the icing on the cake. It was the fact that we a specifically requested this wonderful room (with double bed) which they indicated would not be a problem and then they gave it to someone else. If they thought there would be a problem giving us the room they should have said something!

Why go to one of the most exciting cities in the world on a honeymoon? Save it for when the city has your undivided attention to enjoy all its pazazz as well as its eccentricities. (twin beds, bath down the hall, etc.)

Dear Mike:

Why not go to London and Paris on a Honeymoon? They are beautiful, vibrant, exciting cities that were the perfect backdrop for a wonderful honeymoon (except for the twin beds). What should we have done - played beached whales in some tropical climate stuffing ourselves at the buffet? If my husband and I had it to do over we might change the hotel in London, but we would go back to London and Paris in a heartbeat. Even in a honeymoon fog you can still enjoy wonderful surroundings!
