The Staybridge Suites London Vauxhall is located within the developing area of Vauxhall and Battersea. Less than 5 minute walk from the hotel is River Thames and Albert Embankment. A stroll along the riverside takes you towards Southbank and Westminster and many restaurants and bars,

bluetooth connectivity to a smart TV, and a free mobile charging cable to use with the main connectors, you could even take it with you for £12 if you wanted ( a big markup probably - but a choice if you were lazy). Free standard wifi with upgrade to faster speeds if required.
Samantha (I think was her name ) on breakfast was a breath of fresh air and very friendly, seemed very happy in her job and making our stay as good as it could be. Location is very close to exCel and O2, nearest DLR Royal Victoria Docks, Emirates Air cable car to the O2 is also close by and gives a great nighttime view of the area. [Less]
OK - Crowne Plaza is my favourite brand within the IHG group as I tend to stay in them more than anything else.

I really was impressed by the[More]
staff - extra attentive. For London I was shocked.
Room service and quality of food was great, my only gripe is that my suite had two stories, the top floor being the sleeping area and bathroom. However as it is open plan all the heat from the room collects in the sleeping area and makes it so so hot. I did not sleep at all.

Apart from this I would certainly go back.
They need to offer valet parking by using their sister hotel over the road! [Less]
