... Station, we abandoned the buses for today. Mishel was anxious to shop so we found two important stores: Zara and TopStore. We are told that this is one of the best times for sales and Mishel found some things at both stores that she liked. Still a bit jet-lagged, we headed back to our hotel and got a short nap before dinner and a walk back down town in the ...

Very nice hotel. Service was great. Easy to get to the subway, close to grocery store, church, restaurants. First night away from home and we decided to splurge on a luxury hotel. Was well worth it because we got a good nights sleep. Also they helped us get on a tour of Stonehenge and were always helpful with all our questions.

Historical Traveler Reviews London Marriott Hotel Regents Park
Check the bill
This hotel is nice particulary if you stay with children - they loved the pool. The rooms were fine and large enough to accomodate a family with two smallish children well. The children, and their parents, however, have to be told about the minibar: if you move things around, they will appear on your bill (works by sensor), which we didn't find out until after we put our baby's milk inside. The wait for dinner in the cafe was a trial in the company of a starving 2 year old, but to be fair, we got free drinks to compensate. Food was mediocre and very expensive. It was definitely worth checking the bill at the end of the stay: one children's meal in the cafe was charged full price, the children were charged for breakfast (which we at the time of booking understood to be included) and an item from the minibar (see above) turned up, too. The bill was rectified to our satisfaction without greater discussions with reception.
This hotel should not be included in the Marriott chain.
Staff unprofessional, not concerned about guest issues, not aware of area.
Unsavoury types hanging out in hotel lobby.
Great location with good access to central London and easily available parking in the hotel. Rooms are clean but a little tired. Beds are comfortable. On our last stay on the top floor had poor water pressure in shower and heating system was hard to control- either had to run at full blast or not at all. Breakfast is plentiful but unexciting.
Good sized room, excellent room service. More check-in staff please!
Stayed in this hotel on recommendation from a business colleague. Regents Park is a quiet (for London anyway) suburb not far north of central London. The tube (Swiss Cottage, Jubilee line) is not far away, and only a few stops from the centre of town.
Overall the hotel is fairly good. Rooms are a decent size and fairly quiet - rooms on the south side (reception side) are quieter, away from the main road (Adelaide Rd). The room itself was clean and of a good standard.
Room service was excellent - very fast, the food arrived hot and was of good quality. The pool is also good, as well as the steam room/sauna. There were plenty of kids and families in the pool, but we were staying during school holidays so this was to be expected. This hotel seems to be very popular with families.
The main gripe I had was waiting time at reception - there only ever seemed to be two people on the desk; for a busy hotel like this, two people is not enough! However, service was fine once we got to the front of the queue.
Breakfast was a little chaotic, we had to wait a bit to get a table and other people seemd to get tables ahead of us. The buffet was okay without being outstanding, although there is a chef who will cook up a fresh egg or omelette.
Service at dinner on the other hand was excellent, very efficient. There was a reasonable array of standard (if not outstanding) dishes at not unreasonable prices.
Notes: If you have a large car, the car park is a tight squeeze, especially driving in. For the business traveller, there is broadband (wired only) available at a typical hotel-ish price of £15 per day. No wireless (yet).
Super stay at Regents Marriott
We just returned from a week at this Marriott, and were very pleasantly suprised! It had a super location to get to all of London from the Swiss Cottage Tube station, the staff was very helpful, the pool was exceptionally good for our kids in comparison to many that we have seen in Europe. The rooms were comfortably large and looked out on a quiet, parkside residential area. We felt very safe even late into the evening. One hint: If you can swing upgrading to the Executive Floor, do it! The reception room was on the top floor overlooking the park and the continental breakfast and evening snacks were very good. Given the high costs in London these days, we decided that this was well worth it!
Great if you are looking for an American style Hotel in London!
We were very happy with our hotel. It was clean and the staff was very friendly. I especially loved the bathroom. It had a big deep tub that was perfect for a lovely bath after an all night flight. The room itself was large. We had two beds that were called queens but were American doubles. Loved the breakfast but if you do not have the plan as part of your room rate it is very expensive. ($30 per person) The location was perfect for us. Away from downtown but a block or two from the tube and bus stop. (Swiss Cottage). We could walk to a very nice park and watched New Year's fireworks from a top Primrose Hill which overlooked downtown London. The hotel also has an indoor pool and a limited spa. We got a very good rate from Priceline and feel that we definitely got our money's worth. The outside is a little outdated but once inside you are pleasantly surprised with the warmth and updated look of the lobby. I would stay here again.
Definitely gone downhill
I have stayed at this hotel a number of times, both for leisure and business over a number of years. Recently I have had poor experiences, one of over booking where we were transferred to another hotel and a number of times when the room wasn't ready quite late in the afternoon/evening. The restaurant struggles at breakfast time to cope with the numbers of guests and the buffet food is often cold and unappetising. The hotel itself is nicely situated, and has excellent leisure facilities. But it isn't cheap!
FAB easy hotel!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I stay in this hotel always when I visit London. It is clean, well presented and in a quiet area of the city whilst within easy walking distance of the central tube network! Taxis can be expensive if you require them but for the ease of access by car (parking onsite for a fee) it is by far the easiest and most practical way to drive and stay in London! Price is reasonable and the hotel is quality without arrogance!
Large room, pool, gym, great room service......
We recently had to prolong our stay in London due to the British Airways strikes, hence we decided to stay at The Marriott Hotel, Regents Park. As soon as we set foot into the lobby everything went smoothly. Check in was fast. The rooms were large and air condioned.
The room service was great and well priced. The pool wonderful and the gym perfect. The hotel is not in central London but is close to Swiss Cottage tube stop and has several buses that go past regularly. Camden Town is in walking distance and so too are Belsize Park, Primrose Hill and Hampstead...all great areas. It's a great find as British hotels aren't always large.
Feels like America
A nice, clean, well-run hotel, but feels more like the US than London. The location is good and the value is excellent compared to most London hotels. Great for families, but not for a traditional London experience.
