You might expect a hotel like One Aldwych, with its dramatic Edwardian exterior and Covent Garden location, to be steeped in classical tradition, but what makes this Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel stand out are the many modern touches it provides and its view that the neighborhood surrounding the property is a huge amenity to explore. The design style of the hotel is sleek and modern, and you’ll find iPads available for use, a state-of-the-art gym and a bar at the cutting edge of modern mixology. Yet One Aldwych isn’t shy about encouraging guests to go further afield and explore the West End, with concierges who are eager to book shows or tell you about the latest exhibit at the nearby British Museum. Turndown service includes a note about what’s happening around the neighborhood, and you can expect to be torn as to whether you should stay in and enjoy the luxury hotel’s lap pool with underwater sound system, or cruise the quirky boutiques of Monmouth Street.
