Marriott London Park Lane
Travel Blogs from London
Travelled back via train to London a very nice relaxing trip; the peaceful hum of the train is very soothing. We have Sussex out St Pancras station all ready for our travels to France tomorrow. Just spent the afternoon catching up on washing and gathering energy for the next leg. Our next entry will be from France woohoo. Emmy is getting very excited about her ...

Leaving in a drunk state we were on our way to Fabric, a club with supposedly one of the best speaker systems in the world. Making a few pit stops among the way in various bars we finally arrived. Now to put it simply this club was something you could not possibly imagine, the cloak room and entrance hall was easily the size of any club in sydney. After going through metal detectors and being pat down you were thrown into a fast paced line where you dropped off ...
... Me and Soph were given little booklets, and everyone got pins. Then we finally got onto the set. We first got to go into the Great Hall, where they ate all of their meals. The walls were plastic or some other material, but the floor was real stone. It looked exactly how it did in the movies, except for the fact that most of the tables were taken out. There were some outfits worn by Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, and Slytherin members. There was even a dress ...
... about their jolly in Thailand, but I won't get into a rant about that here, but it saddens me every time. Maybe later on our journey if we come across it I'll rant some more. The check in dude was the most annoying check-in dude I have come across as he decided to update on the loud speaker every 20 seconds on what row he was boarding. i.e. "Now boarding rows 50-75" (repeat once. wait 20 seconds.) "Now boarding rows 49-75" (repeat once. wait ...

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.
