Scriptwriter Rooms are themed as a playwright’s study, using drafts of scripts framed as artworks; Backstage Rooms, styled as dressing rooms, have spotlights, ropes, and illuminated dressing room mirrors. Auditorium Rooms are, designed to capture the experience of a private theatre box. 

The hotel’s location is convenient for exploring Chinatown, Trafalgar Square, Covent Garden and Piccadilly Circus. It has views of The Shard, Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament, Nelson’s Column, the London Eye, and the Gherkin. Seven of the rooms have balconies and the rooftop restaurant has floor-to-ceiling windows and a wraparound balcony.
