    This bit "The stylish guest rooms provide modern comfort, a unique feeling of spaciousness and contemporary decor for both business and leisure travel." seems to be Novotel standard blurb, if you google it gives you novotel hotels around the world.

    Did you book it?? Was it novotel?

    I've just booked this hotel in June for £79 inc breakfast (cost about 180-200 on other sites) and it has been confirmed as Novotel London Excel. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction! I've bagged a bargain. Closest alternative was £125 without breakfast! :T

    Hi Everyone,

    This thread is great.

    Does anyone know which hotels these might be?

    Amazing late Deals in the Heart of the West End - 4* - London
    Thanks to a perfect location in the heart of the West End, this truly delightful boutique style hotel is a great choice for those who want to be within walking distance of London's exciting attractions including Covent Garden, Soho and Oxford Street. This traditional, privately owned hotel offers guest rooms enjoying all the modern facilities you'd expect from a 4-star hotel, including air conditioning and wireless broadband.

    Thank you again!

    Ellen

    I think this is the Charlotte Street Hotel (emphasis on the 'think'!). The restaurants listed when you click through a couple of pages are certainly neighbouring the hotel!

    Sorry - to add, it turns out there's another hotel backing onto CSH, called The Rathbone Hotel, so it could be that one also!

Set in an exciting, historic, vibrant location just seconds from the Underground, the perfect place for whatever your plans are in London. This stylish 5-star is host to a superb choice of bars and dining options. Your rate includes breakfast, complientary wi-fi... and some extra surprises


    Just wondered if you ever found out which hotel this was? thanks.

    They've changed the wording slightly to remove the somewhat giveaway reference to "seconds from the Underground" :rolleyes:
    Luxury hotel in the heart of London - 5* - London

    This vibrant hotel definitely has the WOW factor! It's ideally located close to the entertainment and shopping districts of London. Stylish yet comfortable, the hotel has a wide variety of dining options to suit everyone's taste. It's close to the major tourist attractions London such as Tower Bridge, Tower of London and Tate Modern.
    but I think this is the Andaz (formerly Great Eastern) at Liverpool Street. Clicking through to the nearest restaurants gives two that are right by the Andaz, in fact I'm not sure that one of them isn't actually in the Andaz :D

    Well, I couldn't wait for a reply any longer so I went ahead and booked the above hotel! I did my research and I felt confident it was the HILTON TOWER BRIDGE and it was!!!!

    I got an absolute bargain there - £151 for 2 nights (weekend). Direct with Hilton would have cost £220. I am one happy bunny!
