Dreamgirls Theatre Breaks hotels
Of course, the theatre has it’s very own hotel: the world famous 5 star Savoy Hotel. We are lucky enough to be able to arrange breaks here, for what I consider, the ultimate London Theatre Break!
If your pockets are not quite that deep but you would still like to push the boat out, you can still get 5 star luxury at the Waldorf hotel just along the road on the Aldwych.
Otherwise the Strand Palace Hotel is opposite the theatre and the Amba Charing Cross is along the Strand towards Trafalgar Square. Look across the river for some great discounts on nearby hotels; the Days Inn or the Novotel for example.
