The RDW is simply not worth the price tag. Decor looks a mere step-up from a budget hotel, with cookie-cutter corporate finishings and dated chandeliers. The only nook with any personality is the "library" off to the side, which is crammed in with the rest of the claustrophic interior.
The embodiment of RDW: Lobby toilets had dead orchids in them. As a long-time, inadvertent killer of plants, hardy or not, I happen to know it takes some time for orchids to wither to this dessicated a state and it was disappointing to find the hotel so run-down.
Money is much better spent at One Aldwych, Browns or the Savoy.
Pretty famous and well known hotel at Aldwych, in the heart of the most fun part of London, if you like restaurants and theatres.
Does a nice afternoon tea and all the public areas are pleasant and comfortable.
I have never stayed here, however I hear great things from those who have.
I recently attended a conference which was very useful and well organised.
The hotel is in a good location for theatres and the room was well appointed and modern.
The only real problem was the restaurant, went for breakfast and £22 for dried eggs Benedict is simply not acceptable.

I was so impressed by the beautiful dance/function hall here - sunken marble & onyx and utterly reminiscent of the Titanic or some tea dance from the '20s.
A lovely oasis in theatre land, so different from the hustle & bustle outside.
Tourists do not appear know know about the Waldorf Bargain!
You can dine in style with a 3course dinner and a glass of sparkling wine for only £29. Superb attentive service.
Will definitely visit again.
Mind you it was only £25 last May
We stayed here for one night in March 2010 as we were going to see Oliver! From the moment we got out of the taxi the service we received was outstanding! We have stayed in hotels all over the world, but this really was something else! The room we had was upgraded to an Executive Double, free of charge, because I am partially disabled. This was a real treat and it was absolutely wonderful. Lots of space, huge bed, lovely bathroom with walk in shower, in fact we could have had a party for 20 people in the room!! Would love to go back, but this was a treat paid for by our two sons for Christmas so it may be a while before we can afford to go back! Our son actually took his girlfriend there just last month for her Christmas present, and they received the same service, it really is in a class of it's own! It is expensive, but as the saying goes, you get what you pay for!
Never stayed at the Waldorf but attended a drinks reception there last night.
The bars and Palm Court are gorgeous and classy. It would be a good place to go if you were trying to impress someone. The bartenders are competent too.
Round the corner from Covent Garden and Theatreland, it's an ideal location for meeting up and I imagine would make a great base if visiting London as a tourist.
I'm going to keep the cocktail and champagne bars in mind for early evening drinks and as a possible spot for meeting up with people who are not terribly familiar with London and for those who know a properly mixed drink.
My wife and I received a night in the Waldorf as a gift and had a totally great night out. The hotel is just the ultimate place to stay, it has history, the service is second to none and you really get to feel a million dollars. We went off along the Strand and enjoyed the best London had to offer - wow what a night and to cap it off we got a rickshaw back to the hotel - the guy was completely bonkers which was great!!! Coffee before heading back to the bedroom stung a bit at £20 but a small price to pay for a great night.
My family wouldn’t be able to usually afford to stay in places like this - but extremely fortunately, my dad won some tickets for a free night there with his work so me and him went together a couple of weeks ago!
The best thing about the hotel is the location, especially if you are going to one of the shows. It is right in the middle of the theatre district, literally meters away from Dirty Dancing, Oliver!, Lion King, Spring Awakening and Joseph - and just a couple of minutes walk from the majority of the rest!
The room itself was fairly small (but I suppose that is expected with London hotels!) but it was very comfortable, the beds were lovely and the gym was amazing! You can also go to the gym if you are a member of LA Fitness (something I was delighted to discover, since I am a member!) so I have frequently been back there.
Overall, a very nice hotel. Just a shame the rooms weren’t slightly bigger and more luxurious! But can’t complain - I stayed there for free!!
This hotel lhas changed alot over the last 10 years. It seems to have changed owners 2 or three times and is now part of the Hilton chain. And I think that Hilton are now getting it right….the rooms are nice - good sizes and they seem to have calmed down the Meridien contemporary feel - which was so out of place!
I had afternoon tea here afew weeks ago in Homage and it was lovely…piano playing and great atmosphere. Top tip..we shared an afternoon tea and just got an extra cup of tea - enough for 2! Enjoy!
Fantastic rooms with ultra luxurious quilts and coverings, even more impressive bathrooms but bejeez the staff have a real stick up their @**! One of them refused to print out a receipt for my visit and another warned me I was not allowed to bring food back into the hotel when there was no suggestion that was about to happen. Bit odd really. 4 Star hotel but staff definitely 1 star.
