TravelPod Member ReviewsMarriott London Grosvenor Square Hotel
A very nice, smallish hotel just off of Grosvenor Square. The elevators are undergoing updating and we suffer for it. Our room is tiny, but nice. The "executive" lounge is in the basement, which is sort of depressing, but the complimentary buffet continental breakfast is quite good and is much more than continental breakfasts as I know them from back home--ham, eggs, potatoes, many breads, ample fruits. The location is great--just a short walk to Oxford Street, tube stations, and Selfridge's. Not nearly as nice as the Waldorf Hilton where we stayed last year.

Historical Traveler Reviews Marriott London Grosvenor Square Hotel
Great Location, Beautiful hotel
The hotel is in a beautiful location, close to everything: shops, tube, restaurants. The rooms are large and clean, staff kind and friendly.
We had a problem with airconditioning in our room the day we arrived. It took them 15-20 minutes to send someone to check the problem, but our room was changed immediately afterwards. Breakfast is fantastic! I would certainly reccomend this hotel.
Upscale - Excellent in every way
EXCELLENT Hotel - Spaciuos Rooms, Excellent Service and Great Location that about sums it up. Visited this hotel during the last week of May 2004. The beds were great - best I have ever slept in. Hotel was very nice and again great location in the West end of London. I would highly recommend this hotel.
Excellent property & location
This is a beautiful hotel in a very convenient location. Nice restaurants within a two minute walk, and the underground within 5 minutes. Tons of shopping also within 5 minutes walk, including the huge department store Selfridges & Marks & Spencer. Room was very nicely appointed. I had an interior view from the window which was nothing to speak of. The staff is very friendly and concierge is knowledgeable about the whereabouts in the entire city.
Really Superb Room!
When planning a trip to London, I chose my hotel based on the reviews on this website. I picked the Marriott Grosvenor Square as it had great reviews on this page - and I was not disappointed! I have never written a review of a hotel, but this one was so nice, I wanted to share the info. This hotel was awesome. I stayed here on Dec 22, 2003 - got what I think was a good deal of 99 Pounds per night. It is just a couple blocks from the Tube station (Bond St) which was great for traveling to other parts of the city. No transportation hassles at all. Just off Bond Street, which is a fairly upscale, busy shopping street, but down a quiet and peaceful street, bordering on a nice park, Grosvenor Square (we had a view of the park). Seems like a really safe area even at night. Lots of cafes around here, too. About the hotel- this was one of the nicest hotel rooms I have ever stayed in. The hotel is in an old stately building (which could go either way- could be old and creaky or kept up nicely - which this was), the rooms seem like they are fit for royalty. Really comfortable fluffy beds with mountains of pillows (turn-down service with a chocolate on the pillow), big drapery like you'd see in a castle, a marble bathroom with big fluffy robes and great shower & tub. Lots of other touches like a tea service and in-room safe, nice toiletries, etc. The bar and restaurant were fine (not the greatest but better than your average hotel), service desk people were really competent, and bellmen helpful. I wish I could have stayed longer, and would definitely stay here again if I go to London.
I won't even look for another hotel - they've got my business. Cheers~!
My husband and I stayed here for three nights Nov. 25-28 and had a wonderful, very comfortable stay. The rooms are attractive and roomy.
Beds are big and comfortable, and bathrooms huge! We ordered room service one morning and it was delicious. Staff are very helpful and the location is ideal, close to the Bond St. tube station and close to many restaurants and shopping. Would recommend to anyone.
Love the location
We have stayed here three times in last 3 years. You can't beat the location. I am a runner and Hyde Park is very close. Pizza Hut down the street. Lots of nice restaurants close. Nice Italian on other side of Oxford Street. Tube close by. Store across street and of course The Barley Mow pub next door. Great place to unwind. Do not stay on top floor next to AC unit. We had to be moved but the front desk already knew the problem I think. They were very nice about everything and very friendly. I would recommend it to all.
Loved this hotel
We just returned from a wonderful stay at this hotel. Spacious, two queen bed room on 1st floor overlooking Grosvenor Square, high ceilings, terrific showers, very clean and well-equipped. Excellent breakfast for two included in room rate. Exercise room is so-so: 2 treadmills, 2 upright bikes, 2 steppers and a rower. Service was wonderful - everyone was very friendly and went out of their way to accommodate requests. Great location for business and leisure (particularly if you're trying to fit in both) - on a quiet, posh, leafy street in Mayfair, but only a 3 minute walk to Oxford St and the Bond St tube (and from there a 25 minute ride to the City or Canary Wharf). Great value for those looking at 4*-type hotels.
Pleasnt hotel near High Street Shopping
This is a hotel with a great location. It is very near the major shopping areas, three blocks from the Bond Street tube stop, has a small convenience store across the street and has comfortable rooms.
The restauarant is very expensive but there are several good spots nearby for dinner or a drink. If you want a solid hotel with no surprises in an unbeatable but quiet location, this is the spot. (My only better option is the currently closed for renovation hotel The Mayfair Intercontinental.)
Better than other review
I'd rate the Grosvenor Square more highly than the prior reviewer.
While I didn't use the exercise room, we were on the executive floor, and the room where they served breakfast (and we watched World Cup games on TV, relaxed, read the paper, etc.) was lovely, with very nice staff. Our room was extra large, with quite nice furnishings, and a very good bathroom. Also, the walk to the tube is, I think, 3 blocks.
Good quality for $350 per night
Stayed there November 2001. Hotel is conveniently located; however, unless you take a taxi, it's several minutes to the tube. Exercise room is third world; unfortunately the "usual" for many hotels these days, a room in the corner with a few pieces of outdated and in need of refurbishment cardio equipment. Full breakfast included with Executive Level room. Room amenities are good and service falls into "good/excelllent" category.

We arrived in London on Friday mid-afternoon, landing at Heathrow airport. Man, that place is the pits. The crowds are overwhelming. We arranged for a car service to take us from the airport to our hotel and from the hotel to the ship on Wednesday. For the second year in a row our driver did not know where our hotel was. This was a big surprise …
After breakfast in Reykjavik, we headed to the airport for our trip to London. So, today will be a short update. We got to board the plane using stairs from the Tarmac. I haven't done that in about 10 years! Today, I learned that all Icelandair planes have individual names. Ours was named after a volcano. Check out the Concorde in the photo with …
... packaged foods have temperature settings and cooking times for each type of stove. It confused the heck out of me the first time I used it -- I couldn't figure out what the strange noise was!
But that's enough about English appliances. It’s almost 6 pm as I write this and there are a dozen kids playing just outside my window. They’ve been running up and down the Close all afternoon, chasing ...
... history of the place is amazing, nearly 1,000 years since the first tower was built by the Normans. Lots of fascinating and gruesome tales of intrigue, power, and executions.
After the introductory tour I went to see the Crown Jewels. Wow! Incredible gold pieces of all sizes up to a metre across, fabulous jewels up to over 500 carats. Words couldn't do justice to the beauty (or tackiness in some cases) of these incredible pieces. No photos allowed ...
... close. We tried earlier in the day but the pier was closed due to a suspicious package. Then we went over to Piccadilly again to find some lunch. We shopped around for a little and on our way back some dancers caught our eyes. We stood and watched their show which I became a part of when a dancer dances on me. It was hilarious. Then we waited at the hotel for our farewell ...
