On the banks of the Thames, in the Greenwich district of London, a stone’s throw from the Millennium Dome and near the Canary Wharf business district, the InterContinental London is a hotel of character.
This luxurious hotel offers an experience which is memorable in a number of ways.
Its minimalist glamour gives it a sophisticated look, which is evident in room decor that combines neutral colours with blue highlights and modern technology. The bathrooms are distinguished by their elegance. There’s nothing like a good bath to relax before sitting down to dine at the Market Brasserie, or going to the bar to take the pulse of the city.
On the 18th floor of the building, the Eighteen Sky Bar provides guests with an experience to make you fall in love (again) with London. How could you not be seduced by spectacular views over the city, a glamorous, cosmopolitan atmosphere, elegant decor and faultless service?
The enchantment continues in the brasserie, with a menu that celebrates fresh and tasty produce that the chef prepares with a British touch. I always go for seafood, so I had the tiger prawns with garlic and chili peppers, a superb culinary moment in a refined atmosphere. Also available in the brasserie is a gargantuan breakfast in the form of a buffet. Here, you can feel English for a day, or indulge yourself with other dishes, each more appetising than the next.
The spa is a haven of calm in the heart of a lively district, and it’s another of the exclusive aspects of the establishment. You can choose whether to yield to the pleasures of a treatment, to let yourself be wrapped in gentle fragrances, or to burn off surplus energy in the sports hall. I like a little of everything myself.
On top of this is the high standard of the welcome I was given. Which, unquestionably, raises the InterContinental London hotel to the ranks of the best places in London.
