Ask a master dartsman to throw a dart at what he considers to be the bullseye of a map of London and it's very likely the dart will land on the exact location of the hotel. Unless he's a bad aim, of course. The hotel is located in Holborn on the north bank, right next to The London School of Economics, the Roman Baths and Covent Garden. Attractions such as the West End, Hyde Park, and Buckingham Palace are short tube rides away, though being in central London, nothing is too far away. The nearest Underground stations are Temple and Covent Garden at a seven and eight minute walk respectively. Temple is serviced by the Circle and District Lines, whilst Covent Garden is serviced by the Piccadilly Line, offering easy access to most points within the city.
For those who like to stay active the hotel has a 14 metre heated swimming pool, whilst cardiovascular machines and free weights are available to use in the LA Fitness Club. After a hard workout guests can choose between a selection of relaxing activities, unwinding in the sauna room or revitalising with a beauty treatment or massage. The Palm Court is available for banquets and events, holding a total capacity of 180 people, whilst there are 7 meeting rooms available for corporate functions with up to 400 guests. The Guest Relations team provides a variety of other convenient services, such as a concierge service, valet, laundry and 24-hour room service.
There are parking facilities on-site as well as a valet service.
The hotel has a variety of rooms, ranging from 22 sqm - 53 sqm and including Guest Rooms, Deluxe Rooms, Executive Rooms and Suites. The standard Guest Rooms include a plasma TV, large workdesk and luxury fabrics, whilst the bathrooms are equipped with rain-drop showers. At the other end of the scale, the Suites include an additional seating area, complimentary Continental breakfasts, high speed internet and access to the Executive Lounge. The bathroom has relaxing shower massage jets.
The hotel is all about options and guests have a choice of dining venues to choose from. The Homage Grand Salon Restaurant serves European classics with French and British cheeses in an elegant dining room atmosphere. The Good Godfrey's Bar and Lounge, on the other hand, serves lunch and tea in the afternoon whilst, in the evening, it's thriving with cocktails and light snacks. The Homage Private Bar has a capacity of 40 and is ideal for guests wishing to entertain or throw small, private parties. There's even an on-site coffee shop.
Children are more than welcome and a babysitting service is available with connecting rooms and cots on request.

Guests arriving by air can either take the Gatwick Express to London Victoria station, or the Heathrow Express to London Paddington station, with a respective journey time of 30 and 15 minutes. From either of these stations guests can take the Circle Line to Temple, where the hotel is a short walk up Arundel Street and around Aldwych. There are, of course, taxi services available at all of the city's airports and railway stations.
Guests arriving with their own vehicle can leave the M25 at Junction 16 and take the A40 into central London. Guests should follow the A40 until it becomes the A501, passing Regent's Park and taking a right at Upper Woburn Place before reaching King's Cross London St. Pancras. Guests should follow Upper Woburn place through to Kingsway, staying on the same road. This road opens onto Alderwych, where the hotel is located.
