Set on the verdant, tree-lined thoroughfare of Aldwych – The Waldorf Hotel is directly in the heart of all things Covent Garden. It’s also right in the theatre district for those taking in a West End show on their last night of freedom in The Big Smoke. The guest rooms are set against a grand and historical backdrop – the hotel dates back all the way to 1908. They are minimal, yet elegant, with seriously comfy beds, plasma TVs and a minibar. You can try out the DW fitness club during your stay, or take a refreshing dip in the 14 metre heated indoor pool – surrounded by gorgeous columns preserved from the original building. Dine in style at Homage, inspired by the grand salons of Europe with Louis XVI-style décor and classic dishes. And, there’s also Good Godfrey’s – a sophisticated, contemporary cocktail bar.
