The appeal of the Cheshire Hotel London (formerly the Country Inn & Suites by Carlson) lies in its more traditional decor, one that may not be as modern as some of the newer hotels in the area, but one that is certainly more welcoming and more homely. This is achieved through the significant use of stone and wood in the decor and furnishings, the fireplace making for a particularly inviting welcome on a cold winter's evening.
The traditional theme and prolific use of wood extends throughout the guest rooms, though these are still furnished with good quality, modern amenities. The hotel also has its own restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, meaning that guests will not have to venture far to find a good meal, no matter the time of day. The area is, however, full of restaurants and eateries of all kinds; the Malabar Junction just along the road serves authentic Indian cuisine
Located in the West End, close to Theatreland, the property is an ideal place to stay for those who enjoy the entertainment of a good theatre or four. The hotel is right around the corner from the British Museum and the rather unique shopping experience of Covent Garden is just a short walk to the south. Those who enjoy shopping will pleased to learn that Oxford Street, surely the country's most famous commercial road, is even closer at less than a two minute walk from the hotel. The nearest tube station is Tottenham Court Road, which is less than a 5 minute walk from the hotel and connected to the underground via the Northern and Central Lines, which guests can use to explore the rest of the city and to access the other tube services.

Those arriving to the Cheshire Hotel London by air can take the Express service appropriate to their airport to the city centre. The Gatwick Express runs to Victoria station with a journey time of just 30 minutes, whilst the Heathrow Express takes half of that to get to Paddington. Guests arriving through Victoria can take the Victoria Line to Oxford Circus where they can switch onto the Central Line to conclude their brief journey to Tottenham Court Road. Those arriving through Paddington, on the other hand, should take the Bakerloo service to Oxford Circus where they can do the same. On alighting at Tottenham Court Road guests should cross the street and walk up Tottenham Court Road, which runs adjacent to Oxford Street. Great Russell Street is the first turning on the right.
Guests making their own way to the hotel by car should follow signs for Hyde Park, central London. On reaching the park guests should make for the north-east exit, taking the Oxford Street road as far as Oxford Circus tube station. On reaching the tube station guests should turn left onto Regent Street followed by the fourth right onto Mortimer Street. Guests should follow the road along, turning left at the end onto Tottenham Court Road and taking an immediate right onto Chenies Street. At the end of the road guests should turn right onto Gower Street followed by the third left onto Great Russell Street.
