Please say hello to all from me! Won't be back till April, but they would not forget a "Knucklehead" who carries British Coins from the US and exchanges them at their front desk. Nic, is the lead Concierge, Abundio is also wonderful, as is all the staff! Note, lobby, proud staff is very special!
That is a great picture of MCH! Here are a few others!
Just stayed on Friday/Saturday night. What a great location and excellent staff. The layout is "interesting" as its accomodating a historical building. Highly recommend as the location is perfect for seeing the sights, accessing the underground and bus are all right out the door.
oh yea the CH is the absolute best place!! I love walking out and catching a bus to anywheres......many an afternoon has been spent just riding a double decker bus around town and people watching!! My son will never forget sitting up in the concierge lounge watching a football game after a semester at King's College with no access to tv.....lol..... We've got many fond memories of the CH and expect we'll have many more..... the only regret I have is that when I'm taking an early train out of Victoria Station I generally move across town and after staying at the CH nothing feels right!!
what a great idea! I've never thought of using the BRB to get across town like that.....now the Eye.....I've never ridden because I don't like small enclosed places....lol but hubby and the kids and friends have all done so and tried to "encourage" me.....no way...... I think just walking along the banks of the Thames and taking a boat back is more my speed..... I thought I was heading over there in Dec but my God-daughter decided to not walk at graduation so no trip there at moment....guess I'll just have to be satisfied with Quebec M Courtyard, Montreal SS and Beachside Key West for the next few months....lol..... all great places but none of the properties match the standards of the CH
If you don't like enclosed places, just go to the upper level of the open aired "Big Red Bus", part of the upper deck has a roof on it, but you will enjoy the ride!
There is a web site for the BRB, but I think the ride was around $30 for the full day. Just remember you can purchase tickets for attractions along the route, but you need to buy them prior to that specific stop. So if you are going to The Tower of London, buy it early at one or the stops prior to that stop. The price is the same, but you don't have to wait in line to buy a ticket, you just walk to the entrance, and go in.
