Leicester Square is one of London's most exciting and dynamic areas. In our equivalent of Times Square, from the hotel you're within walking distance of the West End, China Town, Trafalgar Square and a myriad of hip bars and restaurants.
On a more mellow note, there are dozens of pavement cafes in the square itself where you can muse with a cappuccino and soak up the atmosphere. You may also be lucky enough to catch a few A-list Celebs gliding down the red carpet, as Leicester Square is home to some of the hottest film premieres in the world.

Morning: Avoid the tourists and slip into the National Gallery via the Sainsbury wing - go up the stairs and turn left. Pause at the Leonardo cartoon before strolling through to the Pollaiuolo brothers' spectacular Martyrdom of St. Sebastian. Around you are four or five of the best rooms that any gallery in the world has to offer.
Noon: Enter Chinatown and head for the New World on Gerrard Place for immaculate dim sum drawn around the room on trolleys. When you've drunk all the tea, invert the lid of the pot and more tea will arrive.
Night: Bar Italia on Frith Street remains the hippest street bar in London without even trying. Grab a table outside and enjoy London's best coffee while the nightlife unfolds before you.
