Maybe the hotel bound have a charge centre (phones in metal lockers and charge inside) type of thing. Room and view across river is stunning! Tip: turn lights out at night...

My stay at the Royal Horseguards this January was a Christmas present to myself.

A fantastic two days in London. Travelled 1st class with Virgin trains which was really enjoyable. Went to the National gallery to see the impressionist exhibition. Very good but a little crowded.

Staying in Westminster

Neighbourhood Profile
Westminster
If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square, and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just up the road as well. As captivating as the architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are highlights of the area too. St James's Park (arguably London's loveliest), the expansive Green Park, and pedestrian friendly tree lined paths along the river showcase the exquisite manicure provided by English gardeners. Just beyond the landmarks and the gorgeous outdoor spaces, quiet residential squares and age old local pubs offer a more subdued take on this global seat of power in the heart of London.
