Full of financial services companies whose office lights stay on late into the night, Canary Wharf doesn't seem like the most obvious choice for a relaxing getaway. Its proximity to the financial district will, however, be an asset to those on business trips who will find that they have much more time to relax in the evenings or to work on that important presentation. Those visiting London as tourists will find that the hotel's many facilities are enough to make them forget that they're in one of the most hard-working districts of the capital, whilst the convenient location with a spectacular view of the O2 Arena will have them at all of the city's most popular tourist sites in minutes.
The nearest tube station is Canary Wharf, on the Jubilee Line, which is convenient for visitors on business and provides access to all of the other lines and, subsequently, London's most popular attractions. Alternatively the London Docklands Light Railway (DLR) service runs even closer to the hotel via the Blackwall station, providing links to the underground services. Within close range of the hotel are the London ExCel Exhibition Centre, the O2 Arena (just across the river) and Greenwich. The rest of the city's landmarks and tourist spots are short tube rides away.
Radisson Edwardian New Providence Wharf is a hotel with a strong focus on luxury, as demonstrated in the East River spa. Relaxing isn't for everyone and the gym provides guests with a place to keep up their fitness regime. Alternatively the business centre gives visitors all the equipment they need to focus on work-related matters with services as varied as photocopying and video conferencing. There are also a variety of meeting rooms with a maximum capacity of 250.
The 169 rooms are luxurious and stylish, characterised by their modern furnishings and decor, calm colours used on the walls to compliment the lively bedspreads and sleek furniture. The rooms are all rather spacious and are available in several different sizes including one luxury penthouse suite comprising a separate sitting room and guest room.

Guests arriving from any of the city's airports can take the appropriate express service into the city centre. The Heathrow Express takes around 15 minutes to travel to Paddington, whilst the Gatwick express takes roughly twice that to get to Victoria. Guests arriving at Paddington should get the Bakerloo Line to Waterloo where they can change onto the Jubilee Line to conclude their journey to Canary Wharf. Those arriving through Victoria should take the Circle Line to Westminster where they can also change onto the Jubilee Line. From the station guests should walk north along Upper Bank Street, taking the first right onto The South Colonnade and following the Road onto Trafalgar Way. On reaching the roundabout guests should cross the oad and walk along Baffin Way, turning right at the first roundabout and left at the second. The hotel is on Fairmont Avenue and should take less than 15 minutes to walk to.
Guests arriving by car will find that the most direct route through London is to leave the M25 from the east at Junction 30 and follow the A13 towards central London. Guests should stay on the A13 until they reach Canary Wharf, exiting onto the A1261 on Aspen Way. Guests should then take the first exit at the roundabout followed by the first left. Guests should then turn right and then left at the double roundabout before taking a final left onto Fairmont Avenue.
