Strand Palace Hotel
Time Out says
See if you can spot the art deco features of this grand old hotel, which has been in business since 1909. Located virtually opposite the Savoy and so at the heart of Covent Garden and Theatreland, the modern, comfortable rooms are a bargain (doubles from £100) for the area. After a day exploring the sights, enjoy a cocktail (or three) in the lavishly decorated Gin Palace bar and spend at least one evening dining at Daawat, an award-winning Indian Restaurant. There's also free wifi and a large gym, which guests can use for free.
