The Marriott West India Quay is situated in Canary Wharf in the Docklands and can be reached by the DLR or if you're very lucky the Jubilee line. Canary Wharf is largely a financial district although there is a shopping centre, bars, restaurants and a cinema. If you're looking for a tourist location this isn't really it, but it is fairly central for getting in to town. For this reason I'd say this is mostly a business hotel although I went with my boyfriend.
We stayed for one night and the cost was £130. The check in was smooth and the receptionist was friendly. The rooms are modern and new (the hotel was built in 2004) with neutral decor, white bed linen and was of a good size. The bed was pretty big and incredibly comfy so that's a plus. Everything was clean and well maintained and there was a big tv and coffee making facilities.
We did wait 5 mins or so to check out as the recpetionist was having a chat with another guest. Only a minor point and I was probably being impatient. We didn't eat breakfast there (pretty extortionate prices, although usual for hotels) but we had breakfast in Pret at Canary Wharf.
Overall a nice, clean, modern hotel with great comfy bed. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again or recommend it. The only thing I could fault is that it's not very romantic, but perfectly fine. It's a chain hotel so is a bit bland.
