The Strand Palace Hotel is a luxurious 4-star hotel conveniently located near the centre of London. Local tourist attractions such as London Transport Museum, Covent Garden and Victoria Embankment Gardens are not far from the hotel. Also easily within reach are Cleopatra's Needle, London St. Paul's Church (the Actor's Church) and Royal Opera House.The Strand is more than just a busy London thoroughfare. Running parallel the Thames and connecting Westminster to the City, it has been a focus for political and financial power for centuries. Somerset House, a few minutes’ walk from the hotel, is just one of the noblemen’s residences that once lined the street.Our part in the street’s story begins in 1907, when permission was granted for a ‘grand’ new hotel. Two years later The Strand Palace Hotel opened its doors. At that time, a single room with breakfast would have set you back five shillings and six pence – just 27p in today’s money.With Wi-Fi and flat-screen TVs throughout, The Strand Palace Hotel would now be unrecognisable to guests from the Edwardian era. But links with the past still remain: a few Art Deco touches are visible inside and outside the building; guests from the war years still return to relive their memories. Outside, The Strand remains a buzzing focal point of West End life, just as it was in 1909.
