On a sunny Saturday afternoon in May I was lucky enough to be checking in to one of London’s favourite five star hotels, The Marylebone, on none other than my birthday. Located close to colourful Oxford Street, the world-famous stores of Bond Street, Mayfair, and the elegant green spaces of Regents and Hyde Park we found The Marylebone on Wellbeck Street with its Union Jack flag proudly flying high in the preparation for The Queen’s Jubilee.

Following a seamless check-in with the incredibly attentive hotel reception team, we made our way up to the third floor to one of the hotels spacious Studio Suites. Floor to ceiling windows mean the Suite was filled with tons of natural light and the décor modern yet classic with quirky wallpaper and clashing carpets. The in-room amenities were plentiful, a fully stocked mini bar, hairdryer and Malin & Goetz toiletries in the luxurious marble bathroom were the cherry on top of an already memorable experience. Having made ourselves at home with the very welcome bottle of birthday bubbles we set out to explore the rest of the hotel.

After an extensive multi-million-pound renovation during lockdown, The Marylebone is not only home to 248 stunning newly renovated bedrooms and 49 Suites giving optimal choice for room types but also some of the most vibrant event spaces that a London hotel has to offer. A total of fourteen options of room configurations means The Marylebone can cater for any occasion, big or small with the largest space 320m2 with a capacity of 230 for a standing reception. If you want to create a lasting impression for any corporate event then The Marylebone’s spaces are an easy choice, with integrative media screens, and individually controlled light and sound systems, guests can expect to be immersed in a stylish blend of richly textured furnishings and a distinctive colour palette throughout.

The Marylebone is home to 108 Brasserie, oozing local charm and a buzzy atmosphere the all-day dining restaurant offers a delicious contemporary menu along with a great gin selection, including its very own 108 Gin. We made ourselves comfortable in the hotels playful Cocktail Bar, characterised by the four seasons, each nook and cranny of the bar has a totally different ambiance, on such a beautiful day we of course opted for the bright summer terrace filled with gorgeous blue velvet benches and tropical greenery it was the perfect spot to enjoy a cocktail from the expertly curated menu.

Guests are also given complimentary access to Third Space, one of London’s most prestigious health clubs which is onsite and can be directly accessed via a lift that stops on each hotel floor. Giving guests the opportunity to enjoy the 18m pool, gym, and fitness classes. We took advantage of one of the clubs gruelling classes and a well-earned dip after feeling totally refreshed and recharged after our wonderful night’s stay.

Our final verdict? With a classically luxurious yet modern feel throughout, The Marylebone ranks highly on our list of top London Hotels and gets our full approval. Not only is it perfect for a weekend stay in the city or international travel for overseas Exec’s, but they have also created an unrivalled collection of outstanding event spaces sure to make any occasion memorable.
