Where you stay can mean the difference between spending all your time traveling the Tube or being first in line at the city’s biggest sights. And with 24 Marriott hotels across seven different brands—and more on the way—you’ve got plenty of options. At the luxury end of the spectrum, the Grosvenor House, A JW Marriott Hotel gets rave reviews. Mgcandfnc calls it “special” with a “wonderful staff, ambience [and] rooms [that] are elegantly comfortable regardless of type.” He also recommends booking a dinner reservation at the hotel’s Corrigan’s Mayfair restaurant. The hotel is ideally located for both sightseeing and shopping, az85048 says, adding that the concierge lounge is “fantastic” and the staff “exemplary…I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone.” For vixsyclark, attentive service made the stay for her and her young son. “The executive lounge hostess…appeared with a bag of goodies…including a child’s guide to London, jelly beans and coloring books/pens.”


If tourist attractions are at the top of your list, the London Marriott Hotel County Hall puts you in the “best location for traditional sights,” travelbuff says, including the London Eye, Big Ben, Tower of London and more. Flwanderer had a “magnificent stay” and now counts this as his “favorite” Marriott. The hotel offers a “great location, great views and great service” according to maineman, who visited during Christmas. “The staff went out of their way to ensure that our seven-year-old daughter had a personal visit from Santa. We found the true heart of London in the people who cared enough to go the extra bit for a little girl.”

Words like “wow,” “excellent,” “spectacular” and “amazing” are what Insiders use to describe the London Marriott Hotel West India Quay. “The staff treated my family like royalty,” iwannatravel says. Platinumstar also had praise for the staff, saying “they don’t come better than this,” and the facilities, which include an “excellent restaurant” with fish supplied from the local market, a “very good gym” and an “excellent executive lounge.” Profchiara also got the “royal” treatment here and singles out the “fabulous” staff and says “the management is as close to perfect as it comes…I LOVE this hotel. I will ALWAYS stay here again when in London.” Both zukracer and platinumstar recommend upgrading to a Curve suite, which offers plenty of space and great views.

The historic St. Pancras Renaissance London Hotel “exceeded our wildest expectations,” rhoke813 says. “The service makes it really, really special.” Breakfast in the Chambers club includes “pastries as good as any [from a] patisserie in Paris.” GemPrincess also had praise for the “fabulous” lounge and its butlers.

Other favorites include London Marriott Hotel Kensington, which has a “great” West London location and “exceptionally pleasant staff” according to redwood. Nftraveler had a “wonderful experience” at the London Marriott Hotel Regents Park, located “in a beautiful neighborhood with many interesting restaurants and shops nearby.” The London Marriott Park Lane Hotel offered what nancyj calls “excellent accommodations in every way… It was like returning to a cozy and welcoming home.”
