Royal Horseguards Hotel has one of the most desirable rooms in London

UPDATED January 2023–Beat the crowds and book one of London’s most desirable rooms for New Year’s Eve. Where else could you sleep in a tower?

No, not THAT tower, but pretty close.

The Royal Horseguards’ Tower Suite is the only hotel room in London in its very own unique tower. It offers unrivaled views of the annual firework display over the breathtaking River Thames.

‘Upside down’ suite

The hotel’s Tower Suite is an ‘upside down’ suite with a bedroom on the lower floor and a sitting room area on the upper level, giving spectacular panoramic views of some of the most famous sights in London, including the London Eye, St. Paul’s Cathedral and Big Ben.

Can you imagine how fantastic a stay in this suite would be? Start planning your London in December holiday now.

In addition to this gorgeous suite, The Royal Horseguards has 280 bedrooms and suites for the international traveler to ring in the New Year.

Every room offers:

  • built-in iPod docking station;

The London Hotel is Full of Surprises

Recently refurbished for a total cost of $ 27 million, the Royal Horseguards is full of surprises.

There is nowhere else in London where guests can soak up breathtaking river views from the sanctuary of a flower-filled terrace.

And dine in an award-winning restaurant with a fascinating history.

And listen to a talented harpist in the lobby during afternoon tea or rub shoulders with politicians, past and present.

Afternoon tea in the lounge

Afternoon tea in the lounge brings together the very best cakes, sweet treats and sandwich fillings. The sweetest layer of the afternoon tea stand is filled with delicate mouth-watering treats such as red velvet cupcakes, mini pecan pies, Victoria sponges and blueberry cheesecakes. The savory tier includes sandwiches filled with London smoked salmon, cream cheese and classic cucumber.

Availability for New Year’s Eve and rate information may be found for The Royal Houseguards, London, on Booking.com.

The Royal Houseguards Hotel received Tripadvisor’s Traveler’s Choice award for 2022.

Today I can’t stop exploring the world (I blame it on my father’s Viking blood) and write about my adventures – many as a solo woman traveler.

Life isn’t always rosy; I lost my firecracker reasoning skill to head injury in a horrific rollover accident that should have taken my life.

Brain injury hasn’t stopped me from traveling, although it sometimes makes for amusing travel antidotes that I hope you will enjoy. That’s why they call me “UNSTOPPABLE!”
