You couldn’t ask for a much better location in central London than the one where you will find the Cavendish. A quick walk away from Piccadilly Circus, you literally have the West End at your feet, including any number of much loved tourist areas such as Soho, Leicester Square, Trafalgar Square and Covent Garden. These locations are littered with fine restaurants, exclusive shopping districts, traditional British pubs, cool bars and top nightclubs. If none of that takes your fancy, splash out on one of London’s hit theatre shows, such as We Will Rock You, Blood Brothers, Legally Blonde: The Musical or Phantom of the Opera. Alternatively, you can experience the more cultural options on your doorstep such as the National Gallery, the British Museum or the Royal Opera House.
Travel to other areas of London is also simple, thanks to Piccadilly Circus tube station just a few minutes walk from the hotel. The station provides links all across the capital via the Piccadilly line, including to Heathrow Airport.
Discounted membership of the LA Fitness gym just down the road is available from reception. Five meeting rooms with free wireless internet are provided for business clients, with special packages on offer for guests on such trips, such as Private Dining arrangements and Drinks Receptions.
The hotel has its own car park at an extra charge of £10 every two hours up to 6 hours, after which it costs £40 for nine hours, and £50 for 24 hours.
The hotel has 230 rooms overall, with five different types to choose from. Classic and Superior guestrooms house one or two occupants, and the more luxury Executive Rooms, Junior Suites and Penthouse Suites can accommodate a third person at extra expense. Twin beds are available in all rooms except the Classic option. There are a few interconnecting rooms for families if requested.
The rooms have a very modern feel to them, with minimalist decoration, modern artwork and sensual lighting. Various amenities are available, with all rooms having air conditioning, digital television, high speed internet (at an extra cost), electric coffee maker, minibar and ensuite bathrooms with luxury toiletries and walk-in power showers. 24 hour room service is available. The more expensive rooms include further luxuries, such as complimentary robes, more space and more impressive views, and the Penthouse Suites have a separate lounge area.
Meals are available from the Petrichor Restaurant on the first floor, which was recently awarded an AA Rosette for its contemporary takes on seasonal British classics. It provides breakfasts from 6.30am to 10.30am weekdays, and 7.00am to 12.00pm at weekends. Lunch and pre-theatre deals are also available, although lunch is only available weekdays at 12.00pm to 2.30pm. Supper is provided 5.30pm until 10.30pm in the week and 5.00pm until 9.30pm at weekends. You can also get a wide range of drinks and bar snacks from the lobby bar and the lounge every day.
Children under 12 years old can stay for free in Executive Rooms or Suites if sharing a bed with their parents and also get a free breakfast. The digital television service shows CBeebies and other kids’ channels, and cribs are available for hire for all rooms other than the Classic guestrooms, which are too small. Babysitting services are not provided.
There is a selection of wheelchair accessible rooms, lifts provide travel between floors, and guide dogs are welcome to be used in the hotel.
