Ętretat was cloudy, cool and socked in with a steady mist when we awoke this morning. We finished our last minute packing and went to the breakfast room at 8:00 a.m. Our French breakfast included croissants, bread, jam, some wonderful apple preserves, orange juice and cafe au lait. We left immediately after breakfast and began our drive in messy, …
In case you didn't realize it, today was a long, fun-filled day. I started out at 9 am and returned at around 9 pm. I walked about 10 miles in total and got rained on on at least three different occasions. Lucky for me I was with my grandmother, her friend Sue and Sue's grandson Alex. Sue frequents London often for plays and music so she was our tour guide for the day. Thank goodness we had her because London, unlike New York, doesn't have the city ...
I had a huge day today walking, initially set off in search of the Met - for Sean, after tubing to Earls Court from there swapped to the district line to West Brompton - no I didn't get lost, then I had to walk about 500 m to find this tiny little shop/historical museum. So I picked up the police badges, replica bobby hat and some mugs for the boys - eventually getting away from the guy who wanted to natter. As it was such a lovely day I thought I ...
... little unsettling. I needed to get over to Fulham to collect a hired wheelchair for Mum. I got back without mishap but the streets and shops were eerily deserted apart from the afforementioned bus loads of fully geared up police waiting around every corner.
Cooked up a chicken tomato and onion stew for tea and was too tired to even do justice to a rather nice Beaujolais.
... Jenna, Australian girl from pub crawl, and went to Camden Market. Camden Market is this giant street that is like a street fair that sells interesting stuff, clothing, art, food and ****. Tara and I got suckered into the clothing. We ended up spending the whole day with Jenna and even came back to our place to make dinner which took 2 ******* hours to boil water. Ridiculous. That's the life of living in hostels I guess. Now as I'm reading back ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Marriott London Park Lane
I stayed here for one night after a week in Paris in a budget hotel. One of the friends I was with used her Marriott points so we could go out with a bang on our last night in Europe. Boy am I ever glad she did!
Great London Stay
My wife and I spent a week at this hotel using Marriott Rewards Points. I can only say good things about this hotel. The hotel is well located convenient to the Marble Arch Tube Station. The property is immaculate. The employees are well trained and eager to help. I would certainly stay at the Park Lane Marriottt again.
I agree, this is Marriott's hidden gem!
We had 3 nights in London before traveling onward to Edinburgh and I am delighted we spent them at the London Marriott Park Lane. The room was quiet, spacious and very clean. Tasteful furnishings. All the amenities were in place, robes, hairdryer, tea and coffee making facilities,ironing board and iron, etc. The staff were friendly and courteous. Within easy walking distance of Oxford Street and the nearest tube station is just outside the door! I would not hesitate to stay here again!
A unique Marriott
Our family spent a week in two adjoining rooms at this relatively new Marriott property. Situated on northeastern edge of Hyde Park, at the corner of Park Lane and Oxford St., you literally emerge in front of the hotel when you exit the Tube at Marble Arch. The location could not be better. Our first floor rooms, one King and one double, were of a good size (for Europe) and very tastefully furnished, with slippers, robes and shortbread left on your pillow every night. The staff - at the Reception, at the Concierge Desk and the housekeeping crew - were all professional, warm and friendly. The hotel has one of the largest pools in London, which we enjoyed more than once. We had a very enjoyable stay and would certainly stay here again if our travels take us back to London.
In May, after traveling three weeks in Italy, my husband and I looked forward to 3 nights in the luxury of a 5 star hotel, the London Marriott Hotel Park Lane. We booked it with points accrued through an affinity card. Unfortunately it turned out to be one of the least pleasant experiences we have ever had.
I was here for several days on business, and overall was quite impressed with the hotel. The location right across from Hyde Park and next to the Marble Arch tube station is very convenient. You can tell the hotel is relatively new - it's incredibly clean and the rooms are very well appointed. While the rooms are not huge, they are comfortable and very modern - one of the best I've ever had in London. Great bed, wonderful shower, US adaptive outets, easy internet connection. The hotel restaurant was quite good and the staff was very helpful. With the exception of one sub-par restaurant recommendation, the concierge was first rate as were the events planning staff. The business center was expensive as you had to pay even to do word processing, but that was a minor complaint. The other caveat is that with the excellent location, of course, comes high prices. For the Mayfair area, the Marriott's prices are competitive. If I were on vacation with my family I would opt to stay somewhere less expensive, but for business travel this is an excellent choice and I would certainly recommend it.
I've stayed here twice while visiting London on business and loved it.
We enjoyed 4 relaxing nights at Marriott's newest London property. What a little gem! The rooms and public rooms are beautifully decorated, modern yet still welcoming. The staff were delightful, breakfasts were excellent and you can't beat the location: just around the corner from Marble Arch station. We will definitely stay there again.
we really enjoyed this hotel, even though the taxi driver didn't know it even was a hotel and kept driving around! Guess it used to be an apartment building. the rooms are spacious, the view good, the bed was yummy and the service is firt class.
This is such a little jewel in the Marriott chain! Beautifully done from design to practicality....the right lighting, storage, and workspace, comfy beds, all within a British decor, but modern and sleek, not stuffy. The location is perfect for shopping, walking, noshing and the Underground. The fitness center and pool are tucked away and always there when you need them. We stayed for 10 days, 2 adults and a teen, very comfortably in a king room with a sitting area.
