Hotels near the Duchess Theatre
The Duchesss Theatre is down by the Aldwych end of the Strand. The 3 star Travelodge Covent Garden is just the other side of Covent Garden and the 4 star Strand Palace Hotel is just round the corner on the Strand. For 5 star choices you can’y go far wrong with the Savoy itself! Nearest tube is Covent Garden but itr can get a bit manic at the end of the evening… walk along to Charing Cross, or up to Holborn for a slightly more relaxed time of it rather than battling with the lifts if you are thinking of staying outside of the West End.
