The Intercontinental Westminster is aimed at the business traveller, but hospitality touches, a selection of good dining and drinking options and an excellent concierge team make it ideal for those looking for a more leisurely stay as well.
Its location amongst the country’s political hub is reflected in the artwork on the walls, which includes satirical work, Thatcher and Blair references, and sculptural works too.
These are elegantly housed in the main communal areas of the The Intercontinental Westminster, but rooms are art and politics-free, and instead are elegant, chic and very comfortable.
The hotel offers its guests a good variety of rooms including suites, executive and classic rooms, none of which are huge, but are all well-equipped with spacious bathrooms, king-sized beds and many have views of Westminster and beyond.
Linens, towels, bathroom products and the in-room entertainment are all of a good quality and epitomise the hotel’s approach: no fussing and frippery here, but what you do get are the essentials delivered efficiently and with absolutely no cause for complaint.
Visit the Intercontinental Westminster’s restaurant, Blue Boar Smokehouse, for classic American barbecue dishes, try cocktails at Emmeline, the cocktail bar named political activist Emmeline Pankhurst or take afternoon tea in the Lobby Lounge.
The Intercontinental Westminster makes a good choice for a short break in the capital, whether you’re visiting for work or for a base from which to explore this wonderful section of the city.
