As well as walking in the footsteps of celebrities such as Beyoncé and Lady Gaga, guests at the 5-star Andaz London Liverpool Street will be within 20 minutes of two of London's most popular Christmas markets -- the Southbank Centre Winter Festival and Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park.
The riverside Southbank Centre Winter Festival (11 November-25 January) has approximately 80 chalets, selling a range of festive food, drink and gifts. To get to the market, jump on the Central line at Liverpool Street Tube station and change at Bank for the Waterloo & City line. The market is a 5-minute walk from Waterloo station.
Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park (10am-10pm, 18 November-2 January) has an array of Christmas stalls, an ice skating rink, an ice bar, a 60-metre-high wheel and a festive circus. Book ahead, though, as the attractions are all very popular. You can reach Hyde Park via the Central line from Liverpool Street, alighting at Marble Arch -- Winter Wonderland is a 5-minute walk from there.
Hello! magazine calls Andaz London Liverpool Street an "architectural masterpiece -- made up of a red brick Victorian exterior juxtaposed with a sleek and trendy modern interior".
This property has six restaurants, including Eastway Brasserie and Miyako, both of which have an AA Rosette. The former specialises in meats on the grill and the latter serves Japanese food. There are five bars including the 1901 Wine Lounge, which has over 160 wines. Breakfast is served in the Grade II-listed 1901 Restaurant.
All guests get access to the 24-hour health club, which has a gym and a steam room. In-room spa treatments are available for an additional cost (must be booked in advance). Wi-Fi is free.
Old Spitalfields Market, which has been running since the 13th century, and 30 St Mary Axe, better known as The Gherkin, are both around five minutes' walk from the hotel. Other local highlights include St Paul's Cathedral.
We love the stark contrast of the Victorian façade against the sleek interiors, with a 6-storey atrium that resembles New York's Guggenheim Museum.
