I've got 4 bookings here from late June through the end of August at the government rate. So far, they haven't priced themselves out of the market, even during summer months when the government rate...

My guess is that he was referring to The Island Queen, not far east of the Islington entrance to Regent's canal. I've walked by it and it gets good reviews, but I've never tried it. Also not far from...

I checked in earlier this evening for my first visit here. I'm underwhelmed, but I appreciate that I'll probably come off as an over-entitled tosser.

Agreed! I appreciate that the government-rate guests are not the ones that this hotel will be working to attract. I'm now glad that I was able to find a government rate months back when searching on...

Thanks for the initial review! I'll be there in about a month. I found it difficult to get the government rate. This isn't very surprising given that it's often difficult finding any hotel offering...

Other than the "customized" lunch and dinner (assuming that they're included in the cost), the Sakura Club appears to simply have the services that Conrad executive lounges in Asia offer. I guess...

I stayed at the Embassy Suites Convention Center, diagonally across the street from the new Conrad, last week. I agree that the building design is a disappointment. It doesn't fit at all with any of...

Hmm, I see this same layout for UA804 from NRT-IAD on 8 November. I had booked my wife and me into 20AB and we've been kept in those seats in this new configuration. If it doesn't turn into a PE...

Wow, the photo is very promising! The location isn't ideal for me, given where I work in DC when I'm in town. But, I definitely plan to try it out next year, assuming that they offer government rates...
