Well appointed, comfortable, spatious and quiet. Located just paces from the Holborn Tube station. Go for a package that includes breakfast as food is very expensive! Great spread in the morning though. British Museum w/i walking distance as is Covent Garden shopping areas. Wonderful staff and spacious room made this a knock out 8 day stay! I'll stay here when on business in Oct and Dec.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Renaissance Chancery Court London Hotel

Felt like royalty

from Ally_211
Myself & five friends (one of whom was celebrating her 30th birthday) stayed here June 26th for one night. We were amazed. Got there very early 9.15am just expecting to drop our bags off as check-in was much later - but no -not a problem - 3 rooms found, the lady was lovely,
Each room was slightly different in layout - all superb - beautiful bathrooms - like the massage shower head!!!!!
Had requested flowers in one of the rooms - went out, came back - beautiful bouquet sitting - unbelievable service.
Doorman put up with requests for best nightclub - we rolled in at 4.00am ish he was still smiling.
Please stay here if visiting London - 5mins walk to Covent Garden, beautiful cobbled courtyard, very friendly staff - what more do you want!!!

Thank you!

Thanks to the previous reviews here I booked this hotel for a three night stay. Definitely met my expectations. Beautiful hotel; excellent service; and convenient location. I will definitely stay here on my next trip to London.

Top Notch

from A TripAdvisor Member
I stayed at this hotel for one week and every minute was absolutely heavenly. Wonderful service, fabulous amenities such as spa and gym. The staff was the friendliest and most accomodating I have come across (and I do an enormous amount of travel). The furnishing were modern and fresh. The lounge was chock full of delicious gourmet goodies morning, noon, and night. The hotel is fabulously located just around the corner from the underground, however, you could just as easily walk to the British Museum or Oxford street. Also, no more than 10 or 15 minutes walk from wide array of restaurants, bars, and nightclubs in Soho. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Loved This Classy Hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
Impeccable service! You won't fine an ounce of arrogance with this refined staff. We had a deluxe room that looked more like a suite! The only slight downfall at the time was that they only had one lift (elevator) operating during our stay. Other than that, we just loved this place and the English breakfast (included in the price) was the perfect ending to a wonderful stay. We will definitely return to this classy hotel the next time we're in London!

Love it

from axyerv
this is my favorite hotel in london. always superb.

Sublime.... each time!

from PugetSoundGirl
I'm Gold Marriott Rewards and so is my husband. We have stayed here two times, now. Once last month and once in Dec 2002. This place is a TRUE 5-star refuge in London! London hotels are a bit dodgey, but this one is a sure thing! Absolutely perfect rooms. Perfectly clean, perfectly decorated with luxurious bedding, drapes, towels and sheets. Evening turn-down service places a starched and ironed snow-white mat down on each side of your bed for you to step on in the middle of the that you don't have to put your bare feet against the possibly (highly doubtful) dirty berber carpet! There is a built-in vanity with granite counters in the bedroom, ethernet connections (fast, too!), gorgeous bathrooms in granite. Above all, the service at this hotel is remarkable. The location is good, too. Although at first glance it may seem like there's not much around, but there is. Just walk a couple blocks down High Holborn until it splits into Oxford. On the right is a fabulous deli and the British Museum just down the street! Or, head down High Holborn toward Holborn station (1/2 block from hotel) and there are many restaurants on Kingway.

Absolutely Wonderful English Charm

from dmblover31
This hotel was fabulous, not only was the location wonderful but the attention to detail was excellent. It does cost a little more than many other London hotels, albiet they are all VERY VERY expensive but this one will NOT LET YOU DOWN. We stayed here in March for a week and the weather was unusually warm and sunny so it made for a spectacular week.
The breakfast which is included in some rates is a wonderful way to start off your day...many good things to eat like eggs, cereal, fresh fruits, bagels, bread, yogurt etc. Also, the bar/lounge at night is a great way to relax before heading upstairs. It is where we found our favorite drink ever, the FRENCH MARTINI, which we then renamed the LIBERTY MARTINI when we got back to the US. They mix divine drinks and have a great amount of munchies to keep you muching and drinking lots.
I loved the hotel, the room was very spacious by London terms. If I could afford this hotel again I would definately stay there.

Lovely without being too snotty.

Near perfect hospitality

from gbhouston
My wife and I flew to meet our son in London, who while on his European post graduate sabatical had experienced a brush with fate, having travelled on the the train arriving just behind one that was bombed in Madrid. Needless to say, he was happy to see a friendly face, as he met us just after we checked in to the Chancery Court Hotel in the early morning of March 26th. The hotel had cheerfully granted our request for a very early check in at about 9:30am. The entrance through a grand gated courtyard with attendents ever so polite and willing to be of assistance was a great start to a magical stay at this fine hotel. Our requested corner room with two queen size beds was quite large for a London property and had a large elegantly framed picture window overlooking the neighborhood and historic churches of the area. The front desk staff, especially a young fellow by the name of Mike could not have been more accomodating. Every wish was granted with a smile, even my request to receive an extra unplanned night's stay at an already very low AAA rate of 121 pounds. The rest of the staff was equally as polished and the room and amenities were top drawer, although not quite up to the best of the American five star standards.
Location was excellent just down the walk from a major tube station and no more than 10 minutes from major sights. All in all, the hotel exceeded our expectations and was the perfect headquarters for the start of our journey through Great Britain. We will definitley stay there again the next time we come to London!

Outstanding--a Palace!

from A TripAdvisor Member
All previous reviews singing high praises about this hotel were absolutely correct. After staying in a sub-par hotel the previous three nights (Feb 04), the London Chancery Court Hotel was like a palace! It is a true 5 star. The room was spacious with two double beds, a spectacular marble bathroom with huge shower and tub. Maid service was twice a day. Everything was immaculate, especially the bedding. We easily had four of us (family) stay in the room. The breakfast (part of our rate for two adults) was excellent. The front desk and conceirge were extremely professional. The only negative thing I can think of was that the bed was firm (not hard, but firm), which seems to be typical in the UK. If we go to London again, I would definitely stay here. Our rate was 150 pounds, which is good for Central London.

Excellent property, overall above average

from A TripAdvisor Member
Would agree with other reviews of property. Excellent 5 star hotel and couldn't beat the value, expecially over the weekend. Staff seemed very helpful. Am a Silver Marriott Rewards member and expected an upgrade in room from a regular room to executive level or similar as clearly the hotel was not close to full. Beware, some rooms don't have much of a view unless you like a brick courtyard storage area. Was also dissapointed in the quality of food in the lounge dining room. Seemed overpriced as well. In the end, the property was well worth it and would consider returning, but only if a nicer appointed room was guaranteed.

Top Local Tips for London

Take the Underground from Heathrow to Central London - Very Easy TRANSPORT FROM HEATHROW: Cabs / car service from Heathrow is outrageous, slow, and you could get caught in traffic. It is VERY EASY to take the Underground into Central London. I was going to the Renaissance Chancery Court which is a snap. But it would also be easy to get to just about any hotel. To get to the Renaissance Chancery Court or London in general on the Underground, take the Piccadilly Circus (?) line towards Cockfosters to the Holborn Station for the Renaissance Chancery Court. For other hotels, you may have to transfer or flag down a taxi. Check with your hotel. For the Renaissance Chancery Court - - when you get off the train, find the exit to HIGH HOLBORN Street. When you exit onto the sidewalk, turn right. The hotel will be about 100 to 125 yards on your right - - same side of the street as the station. The Underground train from the airport is a local and will take about 45 minutes to 1 hour and can get very crowded. You should be able to get a comfortable seat since you're getting on at the airport which is the beginning of the route back to London. On the way back to Heathrow, you may find yourself standing depending on how crowded the train is. But it's much cheaper than other options and the most convenient way to get to and from the hotel. I tried the Heathrow Express from Paddington Station on the way back to Heathrow. It is only 15 minutes, but the cost is much more and you have the added expense of a cab fare to Paddington Station from the Hotel. Also, when you get to Heathrow, you arrive at "Heathrow Central" for terminals 1, 2, and 3. You have to take another tram to your terminal - - unless you're going to terminal 4. The Heathrow Express stops at Terminal 4. The Underground, however, stops directly at Terminal 3 and I think at terminals 1 and 2 as well - - but better check - - so you walk off the train and right into terminal 3 to catch your plane.

London Eye Book in advance for the London Eye if possible - and if you've booked a VIP/Champagne 'flight', you'll need to pick up your tickets at 'gate' 15, which is right at the back of the booking area. It's not well sign posted and there were hundreds of people milling around - complete chaos really. The 'flight' itself was an amazing experience - we would definitely recommend it.

Take advantage of the concierge lounge. Given the weakness of the dollar and the high cost of dining in London, we recommend an upgrade that includes access to the concierge lounge. The breakfast, all day snacks, beverages and hors d'ouvres will one many dollars (and pounds).
