Day 1 The sights around Westminster Abbey

A travel blog entry by preali

This was our first real day in the city, and we started it with a brisk walk to Kings Cross station, followed by lots more walking through the station to get to the right boarding platform. When we finally emerged at the Westminster tube station, it was a moment. Walked up with the crowds to the Westminster bridge, doing a 360 degree survey of Big Ben, Parliament, the Thames, the Eye - amazing for a first ...

Beautiful Castle, Breathtaking Cathedral

... a bit rainy so we didn't spend much time outdoors. Then it was on to Canterbury. We loved this town and the cathedral is truly breathtaking. As we were touring the cathedral, I kept thinking about the novel Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett. I wonder if it was this cathedral that inspired that book. The town of Canterbury is really quaint with its narrow cobblestone streets and old buildings that have been converted into shops. There was an open ...

... she should go see Billy Elliot. While we were in front of the Westminster Abbey, Rex gave us some history about London and told us that the Abbey is located West of London. When a church and a monastery come together it is called an Abbey. Rex told us the origin of the word minster in Westminster except I forgot it because he told us so much interesting information. When we finished learning about the Westminster Abbey we walked through Parliament Square. We moved on to ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews London Marriott Hotel Marble Arch

    Good hotel but won't go back...

    from

    The hotel was clean, and the rooms very quiet. The hotel was full and we never heard any noise at all from our neighbors. The restaurant food was very good. Bathroom was a bit small. I agree with the negative comments regarding the arabic establishments surrounding this hotel. In the evening there were middle eastern men filling all of the outside chairs and standing around the arabic restaurants. I would have been terrified of walking down the streets without my husband and kids. Only because of this, I would not consider staying at this Marriott again. There was a Marriott closer to Hyde Park that looked much to be a much safer location.

    Great time

    from

    About 3 years ago in July, my husband and I stayed at your hotel for 10 days. We had a great time. The staff treated us very well. We will be coming back hopfully July of 2006. We are looking forward to itl

    Liked the hotel, but not the neighborhood

    from

    Stayed on Christmas eve - at the end of our vacation. We had chunneled in from Paris and took the tube - not realizing that the hotel was several blocks from the tube station. We found the neighborhood rather disconcerting - entirely Arabic. The room itself was nice. Our rate included 2 breakfasts - unfortunately there were 4 of us - so we had to pay for the 2 additional breakfasts - almost $30 each !! Most of the hotel guests appeared to be airline personnel. I would not stay here again - the surrounding neighborhood was a major drawback.

    Very nice boutique type hotel

    from

    We stayed there on vacation for an 8 day period over Thanksgiving 2003.

    Nice hotel, strange location

    from

    My mother and I stayed here during a recent shopping trip. The hotel itself was fine but I did not care for the location. The tube stop is several blocks away which was very inconvenient for my elderly mother.

    The neighborhood was interesting as well and a little disconcerting.

    Two women walking alone after dark (shortly after the theatre) did get some comments which made us uncomfortable. There are a few restuarants and pubs nearby but you would do better to eat before you come/go to the hotel. Overall, if you want an American hotel and a Marriott, try to Grovenors. You'll be much happier. It is much closer to transportation, shopping, various eating places, etc.

    Interesting part of town

    from

    This was a fairly nice hotel but the location for an American hotel seemed odd. It was located in the Marble Arch area which is heavily populated by Arabics. Almost all of the signs and everything were in Arabic. This would not have been such a problem had this been pre-9-11, but being only 18 months past 9-11, we received a few dirty looks, but other than that it isn't much of a problem. The hotel doesn't seem that far from most of the sights (a couple of miles), but with traffic it can easily turn in to a 20-minute drive. ***A tip, get a driver or a cab because London's roads are so oddly formed that it is very easy to get lost.

    Prett good hotel

    from

    We spent the weekend here. It was nice to get back to American hotel standards after various B&B's in Ireland. Room was typical. Windows opened only a crack, and they were fixing the A/C that weekend, (and it was hot!), so that was a bit of a drawback.Seemed a popular place for couples with kids. First time to the pool, we had to leave because of the screaming. Second time we had a quiet window to relax in the Jacuzzi. Facilities were decent, but tile floor seemed a bit mildewing in places.Staff was great. Always a plus - one conciererge was a bit too poetic when answering our questions about a restaurant, but we eventually found one without his help.Neighborhood is very Lebanese - many restaurants to choose from. Many young people hanging out on the streets late into the night.Nearby Internet Cafe was a plus. Metro was a bit of a hike, but busses stopped close by.If you can afford it, why not?

    Great deal through Priceline

    from

    Tipped off by an airline hostess (or cabin personnel, if you wish) that Priceline really could deliver great hotel rooms at discount prices, I tried it for London. Got a beautiful room at a 75% discount (taxes included in the price I paid!). Over-sized thick towels, too! Right on the bus line and the Central tube (which, however, wasn't running all the time I was there). I never would have considered staying in an American hotel abroad, but after this experience, I may relent (after two weeks of traveling, it was great to have a comfortable bed, big bathroom, and lots of amenities) and a bargain to boot. Tea at the Lanesborough is not to sneezed at either. And a bit more of the "American experience," my proper young waiter was from Roswell, New Mexico!

    Very Pleased With This Hotel

    from

    We stayed the last week of November 2002. The hotel was recently refurbished, very clean, comfortable, and conveniently located. Staff was always pleasant and most helpful. We stayed on one of the two floors which offer free access to the executive lounge that serves a generous breakfast and cocktail hour snacks. Fruit, cocoa and other snacks available all day and late at night. The dining room food was good, but not great. The pool and gym are good. Many Middle Eastern restaurants are nearby on Edgware Road; there's no shopping in the hotel's immediate vicinity. The location does require a 10-minute walk to the Underground. This is an excellent value among London hotels.

    Great staff made our stay special

    from

    Our visit to London was enhanced by the great staff at this property. From helping us pick restaurants, to advance purchase of tickets for events in town, they were perfect. Great breakfast buffet each morning got our day off to a good start. The hotel location is convenient to all the sites in London, without all the traffic and congestion. Not your typical Marriott, rather more intimate and managable. Good luck and have fun.
