An elegantly opulent hotel in a quiet, understated neighborhood.
One of the great old railway hotels (next door to Marylebone Station), this Grade II-listed building is pure Victorian Gothic on the outside, but the inside was completely redesigned to great effect. The eight-story central atrium is the most stunning feature with a mezzanine gallery overlooking the Winter Garden Lounge. Also here is the formal restaurant, serving good Mediterranean-influenced international dishes, afternoon tea and a Sunday jazz brunch. More casual is twotwentytwo bar and restaurant with all-day light meals and a huge choice of wines and Champagnes. The rooms, done in a neutral beige palette with gold finishes, are among the largest in London, and are exceptionally well equipped with excellent bathrooms, many with separate shower cubicles. Top suites include the sixth-floor Penthouse and the fifth-floor Presidential, which even has a grand piano. The fitness facility has a small pool, sauna, steam room, massage services and gym.
