Midnight Tango and Hotels
This time the show is at the Phoenix Theatre, where Blood Brothers is/was (depending on when you read this) on Charing Cross Road. So nearby hotels include the three star St Giles Hotel which is quite big and has massive leisure facilities (for a small fee) and several restaurants/bars. There is also the 4 star Radisson Edwardian Bloomsbury Street or Kenilworth Hotels. Then only slightly further are hotels like the Rathbone at the Mercer Street Hotel, but if bargain bucket is more your style then the Travelodge Covent Garden offers a place to lay your head!
Tottenham Court Road is the closest tube station if you wanto get off to another area of London (although the Bloomsbury area is an easy walk).
