The Rushmore Hotel, London is a three-star hotel in the pleasant suburb of Earls Court. It is convenient both for Heathrow Airport and the centre of the city, and offers quiet, understated comfort within easy reach of much of what London has to offer the business or leisure traveller.
Earls Court tube station is just a couple of minutes walk away from the Rushmore Hotel, making it incredibly convenient for people travelling into or out of Heathrow Airport. The airport is just a short jump away on the tube on the Piccadilly Line, the journey from Earls Court takes less than half an hour. The Piccadilly Line can also take you directly into the heart of the West End, to such popular destinations as Leicester Square, Piccadilly Circus, and Green Park for those people who want to see Buckingham Palace. Earls Court station is also a major interchange for the District Line which can take you around much of the rest of London if you wish. Amply provided with restaurants and bars, Earls Court has a slightly more vibrant and diverse feel than much of the rest of Kensington and Chelsea, as it has been the home for successive waves of immigration, and was an early gay nightspot before it was superseded by Soho in the 1960s. All of these elements left their mark on the area, and left it slightly more bohemian than the districts that surround it. Earls Court has its own attractions, as well, including the
Earls Court Exhibition Centre, home of Crufts and the Royal Tournament, and the Troubadour a coffee house and music venue that has played host to artists like Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix and Elvis Costello.
The Rushmore is located in a Victorian town house, with all of the stately elegance that implies. There are 22 rooms, each with its own private bathroom, and a piazza-style conservatory in which guests can relax. The rooms are small but each comes with a colour television, hairdryer and complimentary tray with tea and coffee on. There is a 24-hour reception desk, a small guest lounge, and a luggage store in case you want to explore the city before check in or after check out. There are fax and photocopying facilities, free wireless internet connection throughout the hotel, and an area with internet access for guests. Cots for babies can be provided free of charge, and a continental breakfast is included in the room price.
Some guests have noted that parts of the hotel are small, but many patrons agree that the staff is very helpful, and its location makes it an ideal spot from which to explore London for international travellers using Heathrow Airport. It is clean and quiet, and whilst not luxurious offers a standard level of comfort, and offers a winning combination of value for money and location. If your budget is tight but you still want to be within hailing distance of the city, the Hotel Rushmore may be exactly what you are looking for.
