deluxe450x300

London's Mercer Street Hotel, located right by Covent Garden, has just reopened with a new name following a $24 million renovation. Formerly the Mountbatten, the hotel's remaining rooms and suites should be completed by late August.

The hotel, a Radisson Edwardian property, has 137 bedrooms and suites (72 standard rooms, 57 deluxe and eight suites), and is in quick walking distance to the biggest theaters of the West End (the Shaftesbury, the Palace, the Cambridge, Prince Edward and Donmar Warehouse) as well as Covent Garden Piazza and The Royal Opera House. For those less interested in theater (or theatre, as they call it over there), the hotel is also close to the fashion, entertainment and music scenes in Soho.

Dawn Thomas, who was house manager at the May Fair and general manager at the Hampshire, is the general manager at the Mercer Street.

Bonus: The hotel is offering an opening rate of $246 per night through September 4.
