      It’s original I have to say, I never really paid attention to the artwork in the rooms until now.

      You are correct, it’s the closet hotel to the British Music Experience in the O2.

      I would have no problem paying extra for a hotel room with a view like this.

      What I like the most about the hotel is that it’s centrally located and next to the 02 Arena.

    The full windows are amazing. We just stayed in the top floor luxury suite at the Westin Seattle and had curved floor to ceiling windows and it really made for an amazing way to wake up.

      Isn’t it wonderful to wake up to a beautiful view outside your window. It certainly makes your stay so much more memorable.
