The 5 star crowne plaza london-battersea is a sensational hotel situated at london's vertical gateway - a unique location next to the london heliport in battersea, on the south side of the river thames, opposite chelsea harbour pier and close to clapham junction rail station. Clapham junction provides easy access to several interconnecting underground lines throughout the city. The 70 rooms boost beautiful furniture, offset by rich pickings related to the area's heritage; relevant books and local maps blend into an area where every modern comfort is catered for. Furniture is modern yet wouldn't look out of place in the jazz age, or golden age of air travel for that matter. As you enter the restaurant a featured wall of wine creates a unique piece of "Wine art". You can choose your dining experience depending on your mood and the occasion...Budding chefs can watch their food being prepared whilst dining with the kitchen in full view, couples can retreat and hideaway behind the metallic leaf and frosted fretwork for an intimate dining experience and colleagues can talk over lunch with the only interruption being the superb sight of helicopters landing. The glamorous and contemporary ambrosia bistro/bar on the mezzanine level offers a wide selection of bar menu delights and a sultry cocktail list. Visit the sites of one of london's most decadent and glamorous fitness suites, take a trip to the rich and jewel like subterranean hydro/heat spa experience or enjoy your journey on the hotel's floor dedicated to skincare, massage therapies and grooming.
