I had originally booked a stay at the Hilton Canary Wharf as it also has an Executive Lounge and the rate was much cheaper than at the DoubleTree Tower of London. Of course, the downside is that it is far from the city centre. In the end, I redeemed some Hilton points and stayed in this hotel. We were just so happy with our stay. Aside from the upgrade to one of their suites as a diamond member, we loved the location as the hotel is steps away from the top attractions including the Tower of London and Tower Bridge. Also, the breakfast buffet at the main restaurant had an extensive offering and the evening canapes in the Executive Lounge was lovely too. The cake for our (advanced) anniversary celebration was very much appreciated. Only thing we did not like was the wifi was slow. Overall, it was a very enjoyable stay and we would surely stay here again when back in London.
