Template:Infobox hotel The Tower Hotel, part of the Guoman collection, is situated on the north bank of the River Thames, on the east side of Tower Bridge, in London. It is built in a modern style considered unattractive by many, indeed it was voted the second ugliest building in London in a 2006 BBC poll. However, it is reputed to offer occupants excellent views from its rooms.

The hotel has 801 rooms, as well as 19 meeting rooms with a capacity of up to 600 people. It also has a gym, two restaurants, a coffee bar, and licensed premises. The hotel is ultimately owned by BIL International, a New Zealand investment fund which has shifted the hotel into a separate luxury brand called Guoman Hotels.

The nearest London Underground station is Tower Hill.

In popular culture

The hotel's exterior is briefly featured at the end of the 1975 John Wayne film, Brannigan, as the titular Chicago Police lieutenant's third successive accommodation in London.
