Some places, like London, are notoriously rainy and you can expect at least a day or two of drizzle when visiting. Whether you packed an umbrella or woke up to a completely unexpected shower, there’s no need to let a little rain ruin your vacation. Being stuck in a hotel room can still be fun and rather than feel down about all the things you’re missing out on, we prepared a list of things to do in our London hotels.
#1: Enjoy the views of Hyde Park (Thistle Kensington Gardens)
Even in a cold and wet weather Hyde Park still looks beautiful.
#2: Read the books from hotel library (The Kingsley)
We’re proud that our hotel was once home to Charles Kingsley and other writers from the ‘Bloomsbury Group’. To celebrate our heritage, we’ve established our own Residents’ Library, with a new series of “lost classics” from the early 20th Century you can have delivered to your room. Special reading pillows are available on request
#3: Have a bite to eat at Marmor Grill (Thistle Marble Arch)
Whether you are vegetarian or meat lover, looking for a hearty meal or a light bite, we can promise that you won’t leave The Marmor Grill hungry. A meal there, is a true treat as you get to enjoy the delicious creations and marvel at its new design.
#3: Have a drink in House Lounge (Thistle Piccadilly)
This modern lounge bar is an ideal place to enjoy some drinks and food and with ambient sounds of Jazz, House and Lounge music and lights that change colour towards the evening creating a relaxing atmosphere. From the moment you enter the bar you’re seized by it’s unique character: it’s trendy and high-end but informal. The first item that attracted our attention was the large LCD screen in the middle of the room, showing iconic images of London.
