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.

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.
