We stayed at the Clermont Charing Cross for about a week ahead of Christmas to see the magic of London at this time. Overall from a historical and architectural point of view, the Clermont certainly didn't disappoint. With the Charing Cross right in front of the hotel and the view of St. Martin-in-the-fields across the street, this hotel has lots of history to offer. We stayed with our two boys aged 8 and 12 in one of the suites. The suite afforded us a king sized bed, a pull out couch, along with a portable bed (board on a frame with a mattress) so all of us could sleep comfortably. PROS - A building steeped in history and architectural detail - Front of house staff are all well trained with impeccable etiquette expected from a hotel of this caliber in London City. - Room was always a good temperature and we were able to crack the windows when needed. - Restaurant decor was incredible - Taxi rank and Charing cross tube in front of the hotel - Walking distance to many major attractions - Black-out shades CONS - The suite had limited room for a week's worth of clothing for a family of four during the winter. - Suite did not come with the Elemis products as agreed upon - Suite was not made up before our red-eye flight arrival, so some hoops needed to be jumped through - Leaking shower - Back of house staff (dining, maintenance) didn't quite have that English etiquette you would expect from this level of hotel. - Restaurant menu, while robust, didn't have many appealing items that would really stand-out. - Can get a little noisy in the street Friday / Saturday in the wee hours of the morning Overall, great hotel, could really use some attention to some of the in-room details. Consider Savoy or Ritz if you are looking for that higher-end London etiquette.

Just great ! The location is perfect minutes away from the London eye and big Ben. The staff was amazing and helpful. The room was cozzy and modern with a daily restocked mini bar. The hotel had a great Christmas decor. Multiple restaurants around the property and also inside. I'm really happy with our stay.
