Great hotel with all mod cons

Pros: Our room looked across the river and was a great retreat after being out sightseeing all day. There was no event on at the time at Excel.
Cons: Would have loved to have some info about the hotel and amenities in our room
We booked this hotel because it is very close to Docklands Airport and we had an early international flight after our stay in London. If you are looking for a place to stay away from the city centre then this is a short train ride to the Tower Bridge Station and the station is literally just outside the hotel. We enjoyed the modern environment, and the staff were friendly and helpful.
