The Lincoln Plaza London, Curio Collection by Hilton hotel is a modern upscale hotel located in Canary Wharf in London’s Docklands.
It is in a modern building that is typical of the modern high-rise buildings in the immediate neighbourhood and it has a modern industrial design with a subtle nautical theme.
The 129 air-conditioned hotel rooms all have comfortable beds, a comfy armchair, large flatscreen TVs, ironing facilities, tea and coffee making facilities including a coffee machine and en suite bathrooms with bathrobes and rainfall showers. One drawback is that the hotel doesn’t have proper work desks in its rooms, which is a major shortcoming considering that business travellers comprise a large number of people staying in Canary Wharf.
The hotel has a nice lounge bar near the reception area (the Food Store bar) and another bar (the Jack Speak bar) upstairs, which is a more sophisticated spot for a drink.
There are a couple of dining options including the fairly generic Food Store restaurant as well as an excellent Indian restaurant, Mr Todiwala’s Kitchen.
It also has a fitness centre with a sauna and a heated 18m- (59 ft)-long indoor swimming pool.
Free Wi-Fi wireless internet access is available throughout the hotel.
The hotel is located in Millwall in the Isle of Dogs, which is a modern neighbourhood of high-density residential developments just a short walk south from Canary Wharf. Although it is a pleasant area, it is not what you would expect from a Central London neighbourhood and you may want to consider staying elsewhere in the capital if you’ve come to London for a typically English experience. There are plenty of places to shop, eat and drink in the immediate area but it is best to take a 10-minute walk into the centre of Canary Wharf for the best eating and drinking options.
It is only a five-minute walk to South Quay DLR station and a 10-minute walk to Canary Wharf station. From South Quay DLR, you can get into the centre of maritime Greenwich in just six minutes with trains running every four minutes and from Canary Wharf, the Jubilee line will take you to Westminster in 11 minutes and Bond Street in 15 minutes with trains running every 2–3 minutes.
On-site car parking is available but it costs £20 per 24-hour period.
The Curio Collection is a group of upmarket independent hotels that are affiliated with Hilton. Curio Collection hotels benefit from Hilton’s marketing and their reservation system and guests staying here can earn and redeem points through the Hilton Honors loyalty programme; however, the hotels in the chain are not actually operated by Hilton and the branding in these hotels is kept to a minimum.
