The building first opened in 1922 as the headquarters of the local government in London and later became a hotel in 1998. Its amazingly crafted design means that guests are able to stay in some of the most spacious rooms in the heart of London, with beautiful, priceless riverside views that overlook Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament.
