'Ello guvnah! We are now in the land of Shakespeare, Harry Potter, and, my personal favorite, Prince Harry! We got here yesterday morning by train and made our way to the hotel. First we got dropped off at the wrong Marriott, but we finally got to the right one and got checked in. Our room wasn't ready yet so we hung out in the lounge for a bit, …
London was thoroughly fascinating…changing of the Guards at Buckingham Palace, the crown jewels at the Tower, Westminster Abbey, St. Paul's Cathedral, photos of Will and Kate everywhere, and (yes Beatles fans) Apple Records and a photo of us four crossing a very busy Abbey Road.

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.
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.
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.
