WELCOME TO LONDON’S WEST END

YOU’RE INVITED BACKSTAGE AND FRONT ROW.

W London - Leicester Square is etched so deep in the heart of London that it pulls at her heart strings like the capital's cupid. We know every inch of her inside out; the finesse of her theatres, film and fine-dining, the sizzling shopping streets, the must-see sights and Soho's hotspots to shimmy to. If you're looking for decadent speakeasies in town, just ask us. The best sushi? It's in the bag. And all of this is just a stone's throw from our West End doors.

Survey the spectacle of the city's most fashionable as they flock to world-renowned cinemas for silver screen premieres and to Shaftesbury Avenue theatres for the latest shows. Music comes up when the lights go out with an urban playground unravelling across the West End with traditional English pubs and cosmopolitan clubs, sophisticated cocktails and the cult of membership only, plus plentiful dancing from disco to salsa. Check out travel options and how to get here!

SOHO

The beating heart of London

Never quiet, never boring. Soho is eclectic and edgy. The neighborhood brims with some of London’s most outstanding restaurants and abounds with countless vintage boutiques, established record stores, hipster coffee roasters and pulsing bars and night clubs run by original characters.

Walkers, thinkers, late-night coffee drinkers, bar flies, and theatre fanatics infuse the neighbourhood with 24-hour energy.

If you’re looking to get away from the crowds then look no further than Soho Square which is home to a park and garden area which dates back to 1681 and hosts free open-air concerts and entertainment during the summer.  

Soho is also known for its risqué vibe, the flashing neon of the sex shops, its burlesque shows and gay and lesbian bars.

SHOP

'Til you drop

No visit to the capital would be complete without a shopping day and W London is an unrivalled starting block for a shopping spree.

For flagship fashion, you’ll find the best shopping along Oxford Street and Regent Street.

Moments away from the hotel, from Carnaby street to Berwick street and in Kingly Court, the best and latest fashion pieces sits alongside design classics at Liberty, edgy cult skate wear brands at Supreme, impeccably designed staples at YMC and a mecca of up-and-comers as well as exclusive collaborations by major design houses at the internationally renowned six-floor Dover Street Market.
