Upscale comforts are par for the course in this colorful Covent Garden hotel.
Formerly the Radisson Edwardian Mountbatten, this hotel was originally inspired by the Earl Mountbatten of Burma. These days the eclectic style is more urban than colonial, with splashes of bright color and a plentitude of sleek lines. Smallish rooms are well equipped with interactive technology that connects your iPad, iPod and iPhone to the TV. Luxury suites feature views of Seven Dials. Scoff & Banter serves classic British cuisine, and the accompanying bar does a fine job keeping pace with the trendier venues in town.
