Amy and Dan took time out of their busy schedule to show us round some of the popular Guoman & Thistle Hotels in London, here is just a quick snippet of what we saw...
To start off our fabulous trip we arrived at the Royal Horseguards Hotel on Friday afternoon and checked in to our Executive bedrooms. The bedrooms are beautifully decorated – you can even relax in the bath watching your favourite soap on the built in television!
We then had a show round at One Whitehall Place which is adjoining to the Royal Horseguards Hotel, it is perfect if you need overnight accommodation after a conference. Originally built in 1884 it has beautiful features in every room, The Gladstone Library can seat up to 350 delegates theatre style and enjoys high ceilings, chandeliers and natural daylight. This room is also interconnected with the Reading and Writing Room which can hold up to 450 guests and is perfect for a drinks reception or a private dinner.
Charing Cross Hotel, conveniently located next to Charing Cross Station, overlooking the Strand and just yards away from Trafalgar Square. The largest meeting room is the Betjeman Suite which can hold up to 350 guests with its high sculptured ceiling, marble pillars and glittering chandeliers, suitable for all types of events. With a further 239 bedrooms including suites plus 8 meeting rooms – it really is the place to be.
We then moved on to the Guoman Tower Hotel, located on the River Thames in the heart of London this hotel has magnificent views of Tower Bridge, The River Thames and St Katharine Docks, this hotel is perfect for both business and leisure. The largest room is the Tower Suite which can seat up to 550 theatre style but can be divided into smaller sections. The Tower suite also has its own foyer area with magnificent views, it would certainly be a talking point amongst your guests.
We also had the privilege of having dinner in The Brasserie Restaurant – with a huge variety it was difficult to narrow it down to three courses! I would recommend the Passionfruit Crème Brulèe, it was delicious!
On Saturday we visited three more of the Thistle branded hotels – I won’t go into details, you will have to carry on reading my blog over the next few weeks to get all the gossip!!!!
