Review of Crowne Plaza's The City hotel in London

The Crowne Plaza group has a hotel situated in "The City" in London, a short distance from Blackfriar underground station. We made a fully paid for visit to to it on the 10th September 2008, and carried out a review.

We arrived at 9am in the morning. They couldn't give us an early check-in, but on request they allowed us to shower and refresh in the showers at their gym (which nobody was using). After showering, they had made a plan and had a room ready for us. As you can see in the following pictures, the room had a TV with a bar fridge under it (and inside the bar fridge were all sorts of over-priced but tempting goodies).

There was also a coffee table, mirror, phone, bedside lamp and of course a bed!

Like most hotels, the bath is small.

One peculiarity of the hotel is the way the lifts operate - one needs to slot one's room card in to be able to operate the lifts.
