5 Reasons why The Marylebone is the Perfect Urban Hotel
London’s district of Marylebone is a place where village-style meets urban contemporary characteristics. With a vibrant shopping scene alongside historic and cultural hubs, it offers its residents and visitors the best of both worlds. To celebrate being named ‘Best Urban Hotel’ at the Conde Nast Johansens Awards for Excellence 2016, we share 5 reasons why The Marylebone is the perfect urban hotel.
The Marylebone is situated in the heart of London’s most glamorous urban village. It’s only a short walk to two of the most popular shopping streets in London, Oxford and Bond street, where you can enjoy endless high-street and high-end retailers. Theatreland and main tourist attractions such as Madam Tussauds, Hyde Park and ZSL London Zoo are also an easy stroll from The Marylebone.
Travel made Easy
Thanks to its central location The Marylebone is wonderfully accessible from London’s major train stations and airports. The hotel’s two closest tube stations are Marylebone and Bond Street, which open up lots of direct routes to many tourist attractions and transport hubs. Paddington is just 2 stops away on the Bakerloo line, which also connects the Heathrow Express. Kings Cross and Victoria are also both an easy tube ride away. Thanks to these fantastic transport links, guests can get from A to B with ease.
Step into The Marylebone and you will be met by striking art deco design and ultra-modern amenities. Each room has an effortlessly stylish yet comfortable atmosphere. Keep an eye out for high end design pieces and quirky modern features from interior experts Porto Romana.
Its not very often that you’ll find a hotel in the heart of London that offers guests an 18 metre ozone-treated swimming pool or free access to a premium members-only gym. The Marylebone has both of these plus much more in its wellness centre. The onsite bar and restaurant, 108 Brasserie, is a popular spot in this thriving cosmopolitan community. Serving up modern British cuisine, 108 Brasserie is not just a destination for hotel guests but also a stylish spot for local residents.
The hotel’s award-winning concierge team has excellent knowledge of Marylebone and its surrounding areas. In reception you’ll find Riyas Kallan and Head Concierge Rahim Ismail, who have over five years experience working in The Marylebone between them. They have expert knowledge of London and the surrounding area, so even if it’s your first time visiting in London, they can provide you with plenty of local recommendations and travel tips.
