Expect contemporary class rather than cutting edge cool at this 105-room hotel in the centre of Covent Garden. The service follows a similar line with nice touches such as daily delivery of fresh fruit and flowers to your room and much attention being given to the wee ones. Even their restaurants Axis and Indigo provide the addition of a childrens' menu, cutlery and high chairs. Sweet events are concocted such as wine tasting dinners and cookery school. A recent favourite is a three course dinner at Axis followed by a movie in the private screening room with a glass of Moet and popcorn. Rooms follow suit in a palette that is dominated by slate. The three Deluxe Suites each offer their particular specialty - 410 has large circular sitting room with views of Waterloo Bridge, 500 has a private terrace that overlooks The Aldwych and Royal Opera House rooftop and The Dome Suite features a circular dining room for 10.
The chlorine-free indoor swimming pool that pipes underwater music and the Natura Bisse spa treatments.
