The Waldorf Hilton Hotel, Aldwych, is more than a great luxury hotel. Ever since its 1908 opening, this Edwardian hotel has epitomized London's elegance and hospitable style. From its grand facade, to the fireplaces and oil paintings of the paneled boardroom, to the gilded pillars of the Louis-XVI-style Homage Grand Salon Restaurant, this is an iconic hotel. Guests enjoy afternoon tea to the sounds of harp music, relax in the 1920s themed Good Godfrey's Bar and Lounge, and swim in the Romanesque indoor pool.
Relax in Elegance
The 298 rooms favor understated decor, with whimsical accents in carpets and light fixtures, and are equipped with fridges, safes, and minibars. Bathrooms feature Edwardian chrome and marble washstands. Guests can enjoy traditional afternoon tea or dine at the Homage Grand Salon Restaurant, which features fine European cuisine. After a busy day, guests can unwind in the fitness studio, pool or sauna. Business facilities include a 24-hour business center and seven WiFi-enabled meeting rooms, including the Palm Court Ballroom, for corporate events and social occasions. The hotel also features a wedding service.

Perfect location for shopping and theater in London. Excellent breakfast in a beautiful ballroom. Nice champagne bar for a drink before dinner.
Some rooms are very small and hsave no heating in the bathroom.
Location is excellent - very convenient for Covent Garden and transport links. Most of our destinations were within a 10 minute walk. Our room was on the inner courtyard so quiet and peaceful. We had been concerned that the bathroom might prove a problem ( from reading earlier reviews) but although the door is frosted glass, it was not possible to view the occupant from the bed. We enjoyed a full breakfast on both mornings without any delay in service. All colleagues were keen to ensure that every detail ran smoothly. We did n't expect a bath in the bathroom( only a shower) so were delighted at the opportunity for a soak before our evening out. The umbrella came in handy for the unexpected shower on the first night out.
We used the spa on the first evening- a little disappointed at the state of decoration. Nearly slipped on the floor when I stepped of the matting. Just to clarify that the spa is run by another company.
The comfort was a feature with a very unusual but welcoming room design. The staff were all helpful and friendly
Friendly, efficient and professional staff!
A very minor point. The music in the restaurant at breakfast was rather funereal and repetetive.
Excellent location, friendly staff, good size of the room. Breakfast was very good.
Room orientation towards the internal court, the view from the window was completely disturbed by the presence of metallic plate.
helpfulness of staff
restaurant - quality of food and service outstanding . Staff throughout hotel attentive and helpful .
it is a beautiful hotel with excellent room facilities.
there was a power cut within the hotel there was not an acceptable contingency plan to overcome the problems that were encounted, hence the hotel rating.
lack of attention to detail.
No problems at all !!!!.
