“Great location and service in the middle eastern section of town”
Reviewed 21 April 2012

The Marriott Marble Arch served as a good home base for our week visit to London. It’s located on George St, off Edgware Road which is near Hyde Park. It's a fifteen minute walk to the Edgware tube station (District, Circle, Bakerloo lines) and Marble arch tube station (Central line) so we got around easily. Edgware road has lots of buses that run up and down so that's also an option that we took advantage of especially when we were tired of walking. It’s also near the Paddington train station where you can pick up the Heathrow Express. The taxi drivers pointed out Tony Blair’s current residence which is only a few blocks away.
Our room was on the 11th floor and we were able to see Kensington Gardens and Albert hall from our window. Breakfast downstairs in the restaurant has more variety than in the executive lounge on the 12th floor, although the executive lounge is quieter and has the same great view I mentioned above.
The concierges were very helpful whenever we had a question and the staff was warm and friendly. They work hard to keep the place running. My wife left a bag in the restroom downstairs and within minutes a staff member found it and brought it to lost and found where we were able to recover it.
Just a word about Edgware Road. It has a strong middle eastern feel to it, lots of wonderful shops and restaurants with people sitting in seats outside cafes smoking water pipes. If you are sensitive to smoke, this might bother you as you walk by. The signage is both English and Arabic so it has the feel that I imagine one would get in metropolitan Beirut. I heard that a British Iranian comedian said about Edgware Road - "after Damascus, Mecca and Medina, is the most Islamic place on the planet.” A few blocks over is Marlybone – High St which by contrast has a more traditional “British” feel to it. I mention this because our flight got in late, we jumped out to get a quick bite to eat on Edgeware road, and couldn’t find the traditional English atmosphere that we were looking for. We didn’t feel like we were in London. That feeling passed in the subsequent days, but first impressions matter a little when you are on vacation in a new place.
My wife commented that the workout room was OK, but not great.

I was impressed with the staff and their caring attitude. The rooms were typically a Marriott which overseas is a good thing. They even had some 110 plugs. Only thing i would mention is that this hotel though a great location near Oxford street was smack in the midst of a Muslim neighborhood. This could make some uncomfortable

Everything about this hotel is pretty much the same as you would expect from any Marriott hotel. Clean, comfortable, well located .... two complaints though ....

Check-in takes far too long and you may have to queue for 15 minutes.

The hotel bar added service charges to my bill without my consent, which I queried on check-out and had removed! ... check your bill!

Nice, clean, luxury hotel. Lounge is fully sticked with snacks and beverages. Walking distance to most attractions and restaurants. Elevator kind of slow. Breakfast buffet was great! Make sure you review your hotel bill during checkout for any hidden charges such as unauthorized tips from the breakfast buffet (yes, someone gave themselves a two pound tip) and there was also a room service tray charge. We never had room service. Also, do not removed or move anything around in the minibar. It is not a refrigerator and you will be charged automatically for anything removed or moved around.
