Description Charing Cross
- The Charing Cross hotel can truly claim to be at the very centre of London: the Eleanor Cross outside is the point from which all road distances to the capital are measured. But it was the railways, rather than the motor car, that brought the first guests here. Completed in 1865, this magnificent hotel near The Strand and Trafalgar Square was built at the height of the Victorian railway boom. The wealth and confidence of the era is reflected in the hotel’s sheer scale and opulence; truly this was the Golden Age of travel.
In transforming this Grade II listed building into a hotel for our own century, we’ve preserved all its authentic period features, giving it an elegance and grandeur that are both very much of its time, and completely timeless. With grand and beautifully ornate Betjeman Suite, and 8 other more intimate meeting and function rooms, this London conference venue provides a remarkable backdrop to any event or occasion. From the restaurant with its two AA Rosettes and views over the Strand and Trafalgar Square, to the peaceful lounge and lively bar, this is a place to charm and inspire.
With 239 luxurious bedrooms and Junior Suites, the Charing Cross hotel is the gateway to London’s West End and its world-famous shops, theatres and other attractions. And with Charing Cross mainline and Tube stations literally next door, this iconic Central London hotel is the ideal place to meet, celebrate, or simply relax in the heart of the city.
We invite you to discover the Charing Cross hotel - part of the Guoman collection of 4- and 5-star London hotels. A unique hotel experience, in a city like no other.
