    Lastminute.com - Top Secret Hotels REVEALED (London ONLY) 24th Aug 07 at 8:33 PM
    To all MSE

    As many people are aware you are able to pick up great deals through lastminute.com and their 'secret hotels' scheme. However, there is currently no comprihensive list of "Top Secret Hotels REVEALED" - which is what this thread will aim to do!

    Step 1: How to uncover top secret hotels

    If you're not sure how top secret hotels work and how to uncover them see the Top Secret Hotels Revealed explanation in the main MSE hotels guide.

    Now lets collate the London hotels

    Please note this thread should only be for LONDON hotels only.

    What we want on this thread is hotels which have been booked through lastminute.com as a 'secret hotel' and the CONFIRMED hotel name and address (Please acompany with hotel description).

    TO CLARIFY:

    We want 100% confirmed info i.e. you have actually booked the secret hotel.
    This will hopefully be a comprihensive list which will REVEAL the secrets!

    On the post you should include:

    - The title used for the secret hotel
    - The hotel name REVEALED

    NO-NO's:

    We do not want speculative hotel presumptions nor do we want requests.

    I will start...

    I am also stuck on this one:

    Located in London's newest commercial district and only minutes from the O2 arena. The hotel is on the doorstep of South Quay DLR station with a footbridge linked to Canary Wharf Underground Jubilee & Northern line. Only approx. 15 minutes from London City Airport and the West End. A few tube stops from London's newest shopping centre Westfield's. Excellent rating on Tripadvisor both in service & modern facilities offered.

    i think its the Hilton London Canary Wharf from the description... But can anyone confirm?

    Thanks

    Best guess is the Crowne Plaza Docklands. It's in the docklands, next to the water, has a pool and sauna. It could also be the Hilton Docklands Riverside, though that's on the opposite side of the river so the less likely candidate.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I took the plunge in the end thinking they both looked nice and turned out to be The Crowne Plaza in Docklands.

    Looks a lovely hotel and got a great deal on it compared to the price offered on their own website.

    Hope its as lovely inside and it looks on photos!

    confirming that:

    "fabulous spa hotel near covent garden & west end - 5* - london"
    is Grange Holborn, Southampton Row.


    Also think that:

    "fab rates at modern hotel in trendy location - 4* - london"
    is the Crowne Plaza in Shoreditch.

    "upscale property in west london, kensington"
    is the Hilton, Kensington.

    "boutique hotel, fab location for oxford st,hyde pk"
    looks like Radisson Blu Edwardian Sussex Hotel (Formerly Radission Edwardian Savoy Court).
