Four Seasons Hotel Canary Wharf – luxury

Beautiful pool and usual Four Seasons’ kid-friendly service. Removed from the city’s bustle but an easy tube ride into the city. River ferry from jetty in front of hotel goes to West End offering great tour of River Thames’ attractions. A good choice if you want to leave the city behind for a slower pace at night. (Only downer: the pool is open to kids only from 9am to 11am.)
