A continental buffet breakfast is served each morning in the Sherlock Holmes breakfast room, named for the fictional detective who resided at nearby Baker Street.
Baker Street actually houses one of the closest underground stations to the hotel (the others being Marylebone and Edgware Road). From here visitors can venture out and explore the city.
Before doing so though, guests at the Georgian Hotel London might enjoy exploring the immediate surroundings first. Baker Street houses the famous Madame Tussauds waxwork museum which features life sized models of celebrities, sporting personalities, and historical figures.
The Marble Arch monument, on the corner of Hyde Park, is within walking distance. It also provides another underground station for visitors to utilise. As well as the expansive greenery of Hyde Park, Regents Park is also within walking distance of the hotel. Here the London Zoo is a major feature. This pair of parks is perfect for taking a load off and relaxing an afternoon away.
Marble Arch also marks the beginning of Oxford Street, the world famous shopping district. Here visitors can enjoy a wide range of high street stores and independent retailers. The renowned toy shop Hamleys can be found on Regent Street, which branches off of Oxford Street, as can the Apple Store and a National Geographic shop. Chances are if youve walked this far, you might want to jump on the tube back to the hotel.
The tube actually opens up a world of opportunities for visitors. Many of the citys colourful districts are just a few stops away, as are those picturesque landmarks that populate glossy holiday brochures. Seeing the likes of the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, and St. Pauls Cathedral in real life will far outshine those brochures.
As the hotel does not feature a restaurant, guests are likely to be on the hunt for somewhere to dine. The West End features a vast amount of restaurants, pubs, fast food outlets, and street vendors in which to choose from a world-spanning menu of dishes. All of these can be enjoyed before or after a visit to one of the areas theatre shows.
Upon waking the next morning at the Georgian Hotel London, youll have plenty of memories and realise that theres still a lot more to do before heading home.
