Classy crash pad dotted with contemporary artworks, with a killer location between Covent Garden and the West End
In the hip Covent Garden enclave Seven Dials, the Radisson Blu Edwardian Mercer Street is a classy crash pad that combines contemporary artwork, British gastro-dining and plush guestrooms. The funky lobby showcases Japanese graphic prints, a giant baby's head fashioned out of papier-mâché, and Kama Sutra–esque etchings on the wall. Oversize gold armchairs sit atop floor tiles designed to echo the cobblestones that line the streets outside.
Bed and Bath
A major revamp in 2011 upped the glam factor in the guestrooms. With padded leather–look feature walls, a palette of hot pinks and emerald greens, and tactile throws and cushions, the 137 guestrooms have a feminine feel. Homey extras such as tea- and coffeemaking facilities, cookies and free water come standard. Studios are equipped with Smeg mini-fridges emblazoned with the Union Jack, and Luxury Suites offer triple-aspect windows overlooking Covent Garden, as well as separate dressing rooms. Bathrooms are griege-tiled affairs stocked with products by Essential Elements by Gilchrist & Soames.
Scoff & Banter is an all-day dining spot that serves everything from breakfast through to late night brews. Swing by in the afternoon and tuck into a Roald Dahl–inspired afternoon tea piled high with fancifully named pastries, or dine on British comfort food in the evening (beer-battered fish with chunky fries, shepherd's pie with cabbage and crispy bacon). The basement gym is open 24 hours, but central London's strollable streets are on the doorstep.
In the Area
Start the day with a cup of London's best coffee on Monmouth Street and browse your way through the boutiques that line Seven Dials's cobblestone streets (they all converge at a towering 17th-century sundial opposite the hotel). Highlights include Magma, for quirky housewares and gifts; Orla Kiely, for graphic print womenswear; and Miller Harris, for British fragrances. For a foodie fix try the steamed hirata buns heaped with Japanese toppings at Flesh & Buns; pick from the pungent cheese trolley at Mon Plaisir, London's oldest French restaurant, or tuck into a reasonably priced lunch and cocktails at the underground (and under-the-radar) Freud Bar.
