Modern, sleek, and chic with contemporary art displayed throughout the hotel. This boutique bustles out and in: the busy Strand and Covent Garden are both just outside the door, and the lively Lobby Bar is on the inside. The rooms are a different story: peaceful, modern, and relaxing, featuring lovely daily flower and fruit deliveries, lots of power outlets, and big bathrooms with televisions.
GO HERE WITH
Significant other or co-workers. Your parents or family may appreciate the location and energy as well.
WHY WE LIKE IT
We loved the distinctive flower arrangements in our room that were changed daily (down to the blossom). Also, the rooms are cleaned twice daily (not just turndown service in the evening). Add to that the thoughtful service (a slow delivery on room service led to a comp’ed breakfast) and the central location on the Strand, and you have a winner.
AMENITY WE LOVE
Electrical outlets next to both beds–made for convenient plug-in accessibility that is super helpful when in town for work.
WHAT WE WOULD CHANGE
Hmmm. Not much. Not much at all.
GOOD TO KNOW
One Aldwych has a private contemporary art and sculpture collection of over 400 items displayed throughout the hotel.
