Park Plaza Sherlock Holmes Hotel

108 Baker St., London, W1U 6LJ, England

Named in honor of the fictional detective who had his home on Baker Street, rooms here have a masculine edge with lots of earth tones and pinstripe sheets (along with hypermodern bathrooms stocked with fluffy bathrobes). The bar has an appropriately clubby feel, with wood floors and leather furniture. Despite the name, this is not a theme hotel, although they do run murder-mystery nights twice a month, with more around Christmas (£78, including dinner).

PROS

  • nicely decorated
  • international electrical outlets, including those that work with American equipment

CONS

  • have to walk through the bar to get to reception
  • not well soundproofed from the noisy street
  • total lack of Benedict Cumberbatch
