Located close to many theatres & Covent Garden it is hard to beat this hotel for location. There are an abundance of restaurants to suit all tastes & budgets right on the doorstep as well.
I was surprised to find this hotel on the Hilton website for £130 per night (you can pay this for a Premier Inn in Central London) so booked for a 2 night break with my wife. Upon arrival we were greeted by the bowler hat wearing doorman who was very polite & helpful throughout our stay.
Check in was effortless & achieved 2 hours prior to the advertised time of 3pm. Our room was upgraded to an executive room which I think means it was bigger than a standard one which was nice, but to be honest I wouldn't have wanted much less space.
Since becoming a Hilton the Waldorf has lost much of the character & style from the days of Rocco Forte. There isn't anything wrong with the hotel, you just get the sense something is missing & I think this is just part of being a big chain.
Being a Hilton you know what you are going to get which many find comforting - all the expected facilities were available including air con, mini bar, hair dryer, iron etc....
We didn't use the hotel bar or restaurant because had already planned where we wanted to go, I can say that the staff were all very helpful & polite, our stay was comfortable & reasonable value & I would stay here again.
My only problem is that they want £15 per day for Wi-Fi which is scandalous & a pet hate of mine.
