After completing a recent stay at the Andaz Liverpool Street in London, I wanted to compile a list of the top 10 things you need to know before choosing to stay at this property. In the end, it’s always helpful to have a nice concise list of the pros and cons of the hotel, and I hope you find this to be a beneficial resource as you look to plan your stay.
1. The Andaz Liverpool Street is located directly outside of Liverpool Street Underground station. This station can take you pretty much directly to a majority of the West End via the Circle Line, or to Paddington to take to the Heathrow Express to London Heathrow Airport.
2. The Diamond Suite upgrade for Hyatt Diamonds is to an “Andaz Suite.” I asked for a “Large Suite” and my request was granted, so it can’t hurt to ask for similar during your stay, too. The Large Suite is much bigger than the Andaz Suite and worth the upgrade.
3. Included in each room is a selection of complimentary beverages and snacks, but I found the snacks at this property to be unappealing and not tasty. If you’re looking to munch on something at an odd-hour, I recommend stocking up on other snacks you may be able to purchase elsewhere and bring them back with you.
4. Walking distance from the hotel, you’ll find the DLR which can take you to Greenwich, or sites near the Tower of London and London Bridge. It’s about a 20-25 minute walk to these sites, as well as St. Paul’s Cathedral, which is also near by.
5. Room service at this hotel is 24/7, which is nice for such a property (there are other Andaz properties that have closed hours). It’s worth noting that some of the rooms feature steps to get into the room from the hallway, posing issues with having room service delivered, or for those who may have limited mobility issues.
6. There’s a full fitness center in the basement, which is well equipped and clean. There’s also a generous locker room to change in. Overall, this hotel has an above average health facility.
7. There’s a Masonic Temple inside of the hotel, which you should make time to see during your stay. For more information, check out this review here.
8. Breakfast is served at the 1901 restaurant in the basement, and features a full English breakfast, as well as menu service upon request. Order the pancakes. You won’t regret it.
9. There’s a 24 hour McDonald’s right outside of the hotel, so for a late night craving or jet-lag, know that you’re always covered with food options, even if you don’t want to order room service which can be expense.
10. There’s a hidden sitting area above a large foyer, visible from the elevator banks. If you want to meet friends, take a break in a public space, or don’t want to be in the hustle and bustle of the lobby, go here. Here’s a picture to give you a better idea of the location:
