Swissôtel The Howard, London features 189 rooms and suites offering stunning views over the Thames from the Houses of Parliament to Tower Bridge. The hotel completed its extensive refurbishment by late 2002, which also included the addition of two new floors of luxurious suites, which feature stylish soft furnishings and private balconies.
Surprisingly this privately owned hotel is one of only a handful to enjoy an address beside the River Thames and, for those who love splendid views, Swissotel The Howard is the perfect place to stay. Situated on a bend in the river between Waterloo and Blackfriars bridges many rooms share a magnificent panorama that simply took our breath away when we went to visit. This enviable location also lies conveniently between London's financial - The City - and major social district - The West End - and is easily accessible by both underground and main line rail.
Bedrooms enjoy either stunning river or beautiful garden/courtyard views. All 177 rooms and 12 suites are equipped with satellite TV, safe, hairdryer, mini-bar, two incoming phone lines, voice mail and modem point. Add an extensive and tempting 24-hour room service menu and you need never leave your room.
