One Aldwych is a five-star luxury hotel in London, England, founded by Gordon Campbell Gray. One Aldwych lies in the Aldwych in Covent Garden in City of Westminster.
The hotel is located in an Edwardian style building constructed in 1907 by the same architects who designed The Ritz. It is located on the corner of The Aldwych and Wellington Street, adjacent to the Novello Theatre and opposite the London Transport Museum. For many years the building was used for The Morning Post newspaper office purposes. In 1998 the hotel was restored by Jestico Whiles Associates who purposefully retained its Edwardian style, and also included Louis XVI ornaments to furnish it, including a 400 piece art collection. The exterior is also made from Norwegian granite.
