Film & Fizz
It’s Christmas! *starts singing a Mariah Carey Christmas song*….. I know waaay too soon. December marks the official countdown to the special day where you are allowed to get over the top festive, as it is merely a matter of weeks away. One Aldwych Hotel are inviting you to stay in with a glass of champagne, popcorn and your classic Christmas film in partnership with Curzon, at their private screening room. Over the next few weekends ( book fast) Start your experience with a three-course dinner at Indigo for two. Retire to the One Aldwych luxurious 30-seat screening room, with a chilled glass of Lallier Grande Réserve Champagne.
If you want to staycation right, then a Deluxe Room at One Aldwych Hotel is the only way to go. I brought my Boden tote and I packed my Ted Baker holdall and suitcase, like I was going away for four weekends, because you never know what you will end up needing. One great weekend was called for as it was much needed time for myself, for both work and play. Shortly after check-in I was booked in for an Oskia facial at the health spa, which was 45 minutes of pure relaxation. I drifted off just a couple of times!
Although the room was more than enough, Covent Garden was only a hop skip and a jump away. On the 2nd floor, the view from my window was the theatre, and the buzz of the street. I wanted to explore the city that I love so much. It didn’t hurt that it included a spot of shopping. Before dinner I found the secret door to Lounge One the private guest space, with a curated library of Rizzoli books specially chosen by Paul Smith.
As mentioned earlier the Film and Fizz package includes an intimate dinner at Indigo. I reviewed the Mezzanine restaurant which overlooks the lobby bar which is even more special, with the new edition of the 25 foot Christmas tree, adorned with pearls, decorative leaves and 140 champagne bottles.
Breakfast in bed
My king size bed was absolutely too plush to leave to venture to the buffet breakfast. I am not particularly anti- social, but honestly when is the last time you had breakfast in bed? Complimentary breakfast is included as part of the deluxe room, so I took advantage of the 24 hour room service. I ordered Eggs Benedict, fresh orange juice, a café latte and a side of blueberry pancakes drenched in maple syrup. Too much?
