One Aldwych is a visually striking, award-winning hotel located right in the heart of Covent Garden, within ten minutes' walk of no fewer than fifteen leading West End theatres, the Royal Opera House and a number of world-famous art galleries, including Tate Modern, Somerset House and the National Gallery - perfect for travellers who enjoy the arts and culture. Built in 1907, originally as the headquarters of the Morning Post newspaper, the property is an important example of London's Edwardian era architecture; so much so, it is now protected by an English Heritage listing.
Accommodation is glamorous and modern, with state-of-the-art technology and luxurious touches, such as Frette bed linen, original artwork and fresh fruit and flowers delivered daily. Guests are welcome to unwind in Lounge at One, the hotel's exclusive private guest lounge, which is replete with a dedicated Concierge to assist with organising theatre, restaurant and on-line flight reservations, iPads, newspapers and magazines, an all-day dining menu and beautiful Rizzoli books that have been carefully curated by the celebrated British designer, Sir Paul Smith - it's even possible to enjoy a neck and back massage in one of its areas. One Aldwych is home to a buzzing Lobby Bar and Indigo restaurant, coupled with a stunning chlorine-free swimming pool, state-of-the-art gym and a private art collection, this stylish retreat is a truly exciting place to stay.
