Recently changed ownership.

The Renaissance Chancery Court was a fabulous hotel. It's recently been refurbished and is now under new ownership as "The Rosewood London". I've not been inside since it was renamed and re branded but by all accounts it's still a great place to stay if you can afford it.

If you are confused by all the reviews of the Renaissance Chancery Court and can't find it, it will be because it doesn't exist any more. The magnificent building still exists and it's still a hotel but it's now "The Rosewood London"..

A lovely experience

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)

a beautiful hotel in a great location. be warned, though, the room quality varies greatly. some rooms are quite spacious - others are very small.

the lobby is beautiful and a stroll through the hotel is rewarding for it's architecture. the building used to be a former bank/insurance company and has a great feel.

the staff are well trained and quite professional. the lounge is a bit loud, but pleasant. delicious nibbles while you sip your drinks. quiet spaces are available for business meetings and the staff treats you well.

Unique Quality: the architecture is beautiful. great location near much of central london's numerous sites. a short walk to tube stops.

Directions: central london. nearest tube stop is holburn.

Thanks Marriott Points

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)

Thank goodness for Marriott Points or I would have never been able to afford this very business like hotel which had great access to everything we wanted to do in London. Some people have mentioned in other travel websites that the walls were paper thin, but we were in a corner room on the 5th floor and didn't hear a peep from anybody.

The only disappointment I had was when I asked the concierage one time about getting to a certain area not too far from the hotel and he recommended a cab instead of answering my question about which tube station was the closest. Other then that the chocolates and fresh fruit in the lobby were fantastic (especially loved the fresh figs), check in and check out were very smooth. The private entrance way off the main street which was watched over by a Marriott employee and the turndown service at night which included a white linen cloth on each side of our bed was a delight.

Unique Quality: Room was spacious and included all the amenities you could think of for a business hotel. Absolutely loved the white linen that the turndown service provided each night by the side of the bed.

Directions: About a 1 block walk from the Holborn Tube Station

First Class all the way !! Fantastic property with close access to the Tube.

Unique Quality: The President of one of the Russian breakaway countries was staying there at the same time we were. This hotel was featured in a couple of movies. I believe one was The Saint.

Terrific Buy!

This is an old converted insurance company building that now is a wonderful hotel. I travel to London several times a year and have over 120 trips there, so I have tried a few hotels. My main -stay has been the Savoy for many years, but I was introduced to the Renaissance Chancery Court by a client this last trip and I am soon to be in a quandry. Next trip, I don't know where I will stay. The hotel is that good! And the Savoy is just the very very best!

Unique Quality: Great businss services, excellent location, bars are excellent for meeting business associates (classy and quiet)

This hotel of the Marriott chain is by far the best hotel in London I stayed in. It's located in the Bloomsburry/Holborn area within walking distance of Covent Garden and the other London popular attractions.This 5* hotel built in the early 20th century is part of the English Heritage and was used several times as a movie set. Its style is magnificient with its unique grand marble staircase, very large lobby, spacious and relaxing piano-bar.....
The rooms are very spacious, decorated with style, comfortable beds and big bathrooms.
One of the best assets of the hotel is its spa facilities, where they have over 40 different treatments (spa is accessible to non-guest also)
Continental breakfast is £17

Unique Quality: Spa, pool, fitness
Fantastic hotel bar and restaurant
The Bar
The Pearl

Directions: Holborn tube station

On our way to South Africa, we had a stop over in London. I turned in some Marriott points and got this hotel for our "one night stand." As flights from the states arrive early, we were very happy that they gave us our room when we arrived about 9:30AM. We fell into that wonderful bed and had a fabulous nap...woke up and went out for lunch and the rest of the afternoon.

Unique Quality: We don't stay in such wonderful places on our own dime -- but WOW this was amazing. The service was great, the facilities were lovely, the location was charming. We were in walking distance to so much, and the tube stops were convenient. I'd recommend this place if you can afford it -- and if you have a chance to get it for "points" go for it!

Directions: This was a beautiful part of the city!
