The hotel is just a two minutes’ walk from three underground lines at Gloucester Road Station, Piccadilly, Circle and District lines, allowing easy access to central London, while Heathrow Airport is a 40-minute direct tube trip away or 30 minutes on the Heathrow Express train.

Guests can discover many of London’s most well-known attractions nearby, such as Kensington Gardens, Kensington Palace, the Natural History Museum, Royal Albert Hall, Hyde Park and luxury shopping in Knightsbridge, home to the world-famous Harrods.

The 906-bedroom hotel is set over 27 floors and offers panoramic views of the city. The hotel is also home to 11 versatile, naturally lit event spaces holding up to 400 guests, plus generous break-out space for networking. There's a staffed business center and WiFi is complimentary throughout the hotel.

The Ashburn SW7 Bar & Restaurant is open for lunch and dinner with an all-day menu. The hotel also benefits from a well- equipped gym, the traditional Tavern Pub, a lounge and bar area, and a designated crew lounge.

This is our guests' favorite part of London, according to independent reviews.
