I used to live and work in central London and always dreamed about staying at the Waldorf Hilton hotel. It's situated opposite where I used to work on the Strand, one of the main thoroughfares in the West End so it's within strolling distance of many of London's main attractions (Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, Covent Garden, The British Museum, Theatreland etc etc). Such a great location.
But it's whats inside the hotel that attracts me - how many other central London hotels have indoor pools - not many let me tell you! Fancy an early morning dip before breakfast? or a relaxing swim after a long day sightseeing? The Waldorf pool is just perfect - they have child-free times too if you want to avoid too much splashing!
The beautiful Palm Court is where they serve breakfast - it makes you feel like you've travelled back in time to a more genteel way of life. They also serve a proper afternoon tea, such a treat! Whilst the hotel reflects an Art Deco feel, some of the rooms and suites are really modern so you get the best of both worlds - lovely!
So, the Waldorf Hilton is the perfect mix - a great hotel that would be a destination in itself but also situated in one of the best spots in town - PERFECTION!
