The historic and stately Royal Horseguards Hotel is an award-winning 5 star hotel located on London's Embankment at No2 Whitehall. Built in 1884 in the style of a French château, it is now a Grade II Listed building offering a choice of 282 luxurious bedrooms and opulent suites, many affording magnificent views over the Thames. The Royal Horseguards Hotel once served as headquarters for the British Secret Services (MI5 and MI6) and numerous meetings and discussions between influential politicians, statesmen and diplomats have taken place within the walls of the hotel. It’s said that Winston Churchill and others used secret tunnels within the building. During WWII most of the building was taken over by Government departments; the fifth floor utilised by the Russian Embassy, the sixth floor by the American Embassy and the seventh floor by the Air Training Corps. The Forbes Travel Guide Recommended hotel is beautiful both outside and inside and is often used as a filming location. It has featured in several films, such as The Constant Gardener, Bond films Octopussy and Skyfall, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, and TV programmes Mr Selfridge and Downton Abbey to name a few.
