Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Noel430 Great location and service
Located directly across St James Park Station, the hotel is in the heart of Westminster. Just a few minutes away from the major sites in London.
The staff was most helpful in making our stay comfortable.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Robert60 Fantastic Luxury Hotel
ON arrival I was made feel as if I was an old customer and treated like Royalty! The receptions (Julianna) was friendly and showed me the features of my room and the concierge was friendly and helpful. This is the best hotel I have stayed in in the UK, and one of the top two in the world, and I have stayed in many 4 and 5 star hotels abroad. I will come again definitely. Happy New Year to you all at this superb hotel. Best Wishes Robert

- Generally very nice property, we had a great room (Superior King) with a large and excellent bathroom and a large comfortable bed
- Superb TV installation and excellent choice of entertainment. Nice to see some movies not even on DVD yet on the system, well done!
- Very good quality breakfast in the Club Lounge, and excellent attentive service
The not so good
- Our room wasn't ready at 3.00, and I didn't receive the promised call when it was ready, I found out when I asked at the desk 40 minutes later. OK, not a huge wait but not what I would hope from a 5-star Intercontinental.
- As an Ambassador I paid a reduced rate for Club Lounge access (apparently half price.) It was worth it, but no way would it have been worth the full price
- The Club Lounge advertised 'canapes' at 5.30, unusually early, and bizarrely not a single canape was actually served. A selection of smoked salmon, cold meats, cheese and a couple of salads, as well as what they called 'hot canapes' which were bowls of either spaghetti meatballs or ravioli. The seem not to know what what a canape is. Frankly this was disappointing, we've had much better in some London Crowne Plazas and considerably better in Interconinental's in the USA.
- On returning to the hotel later we made the big mistake of finding the bar (which is not that obvious as it almost appears separate to the hotel.) We ordered a Bloody Mary and a normal size glass of Sauvignon Blanc. Including a 12.5% service charge, the wine was £11.25. The Bloody Mary had no discernible vodka, was badly seasoned and charged at £14.56. By far the most expensive Bloody Mary I've ever had and also one of the worst. These bar prices are ridiculous, it's no wonder the bar was nearly empty despite the hotel being pretty much full. Get real, don't rip your customers off, these prices are silly even for London.
- Getting a taxi to go out in the evening. At 7.00 pm (on a Saturday) we waited 20 minutes, second in the queue, before giving up and walking about half a mile to Parliament Square to hail one. We ended up half an hour late for our dinner reservation and having to share a table with another couple. Obviously this is not the hotel's fault, but it is a factor to consider when staying here.

The hotel has an excellent location, just opposite St James' Park tube station. The rooms are very cozy, not huge but very warm and inviting. A great nights sleep and enjoyable stay. However, isnt cheap but what is in London?

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jennifer2012 Comfortable room and great sleep
Loved the location and the room on the 6th floor was fantastic. Very quiet as we requested. Big disappointment in the morning when we made tea in the room and the fresh milk in the fridge had gone sour. Proceeded to breakfast and even though it wasn't busy it was hard to get the attention of staff. On questioning if there was a hot buffet I was met by a pretty curt no. I will give the hotel another try in a few weeks. Hopefully the service will be better.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MarkP2017 Lovely hotel in a great location.
My wife and I came for a weekend break in December and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location of the hotel could not be more convenient for the London underground. From checking in to checking out the staff we met were attentive, courteous and thoroughly professional. The decor in general and the room in particular were first rate.
We will certainly return the next time we visit London.

This was a birthday treat for my wife and also a tester to see whether a stay in the Berlin Intercontinental for our Ruby wedding anniversary in March would be justified. I have stayed at a lot of Holiday Inns but never before InterContinental. I was determined to find fault and finally did when I found that the coffee pods for the complimentary coffee were not labelled! However I couldn't fault the actual coffee nor indeed the Breakfast tea which was the best I have ever had anywhere in the world and certainly beat our staple PG tips. My wife declared the bed the most comfortable hotel bed she had ever slept in and she is a real 'princess and pea' person. It did make wonder about all the other 5* hotels we have stayed in. The staff could not have been more accommodating, our room wasn't ready at 15:00 hrs but the front of house manager looked after us admirably. We booked the Sunday Brunch with slight trepidation as it seemed very cheap even by Holiday Inn standards. I can only say if you have the chance don't miss it. It was excellent, perhaps not Michelin star standard but certainly, for the price, way above the run of the mill restaurants in London. Staff were attentive and helpful during what was a very busy time for them. I can only conclude that this has cost me money as I have had to book the InterContinental in Berlin with Club access for our anniversary, I only hope the standard will be as high as this Hotel. Thanks to all the staff who looked after us so admirably.

When power was cut on Saturday night nobody informed when it was restored, therefore spent over two hours in darkness without tv of internet.
Little recognition of Ambassador Platinum membership.

I stayed at this hotel as I was attending an evening function nearby in Westminster. This was the first time. Very attractive but the lobby was rather cold. Room very attractive and modern. I will recommend to colleagues.

I stayed here for one night on November 23rd with my friend and I can't wait to go back. Everything about this hotel is great (although I can't comment on the food because we didn't eat there). The location is amazing, the staff were very friendly and the hotel itself is beautiful. I would definitely recommend it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 900pf Excellent room and staff
The bed is great both in size and in confort. The staff are brilliant, extremely helpful and sypathetic without any excesses. Especially Juliana, very friendly and effective check-in.
Room is very well equipped. Lights' switches can be slightly confusing at first but that's ok. Breakfast good and acceptable, but not outstanding.
Hotel is ideally located. 5 minutes to Westminster Abbey & Big Ben, 10 minutes to Trafalgar Square.
Will go there again, that's for sure.

The Intercontinental - Westminster hotel is a great choice if you are planning an excursion to London. The warm, informative staff is ready to welcome you and help create an enchanting impression of such a colorfully historic city. The hotel is not only conveniently located close to all modes of transportation but also is within walking distance to sites such as Parliament, Buckingham Palace, Trafalgar Square and Westminster Abbey. The hotel served as a gracious headquarters to a memorable adventure in London.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by gck221270 Outstanding.
I have stayed at numerous IHG properties over the years and can honestly state that the Intercontinental Westminster is absolutely first-class, and my favourite property alongside Intercontinental Melbourne the Rialto. The hotel decor is first-class and the rooms an absolute pleasure. In addition to this the hotel and staff manage to avoid being stuff and simply enhance the whole experience.
I wholeheartedly recommend this hotel for it's excellence, location and overall charm, and will stay here as long as my wallet allows.

Our stay here was brilliant. however, i do have one fault our sounds system in the room did not work. Im not sure if it was the bose sound system or the bluetooth connection?. Having already unpacked when we dicovered it did not work, we didnt really feel the need to maybe be moved rooms as the system did not work. Also on our second day the maid cleaned the rooms and only returned one bath robe to the room. other than that faultless and very very clean.
