The Dixon is a relatively new luxury boutique hotel on the south side of Tower Bridge. It is situated in a building which used to be a magistrate’s court, and was built as part of the new housing and theatre development in that area.
I’ve never been inside although it is on my list – I used to work virtually next door and remember it sitting empty. It is part of Marriott’s Autograph Collection of luxury independent boutique hotels.
You can see the Marriott website for the hotel here.
Via Marriott, it isn’t cheap. You will usually pay around £250 midweek – it is asking that for next Spring – although at present you can book for around £110.
Travelzoo is selling REFUNDABLE vouchers for The Dixon for £95. They can be used up to the end of April 2021, plus August and December 2021.
Spend an extra £34 and they will include breakfast, 2pm check-out and a bottle of prosecco.
It doesn’t represent a great saving for short term stays – although you DO make a saving – but if you need to be in London before the end of April it is definitely worth a look. Travelzoo will refund you if you don’t end up using it.
Remember that you will NOT receive Marriott Bonvoy points, stay credit or your elite status benefits if you book via this route.
