Stayed there last Thanksgiving and have already booked for next Thanksgiving, using Marriott Reward. Was given river view room overlooking Parliament, Big Ben, etc. without addiito9nal points or surcharge. Hotel staff was exceptionally accommodating, Would encourage Marriott rewards members to get the 200,000 reward option and take the new frequent flyer points (got 120,000 SkyMiles, plus the hotel stay. This is a better return than claiming the hotel package only. Location is good and I didn't mind the 20 minute walk to the theatre district and less than 10 minutes to 10 Downing Street. The bridge over the Thames was under construction last November, making the navigation a little more difficult. Suppose that construction is still ongoing.
