Free is good! I applied for the Marriott Rewards credit card and received 70k points which I used for two free nights at this lovely London Marriott hotel. WiFi is free and fast. Lots of shopping nearby.

After staying at various Marriot hotels this summer in the US Northeast I must say that the UK experience is somewhat different. This Marriot hotel had very small rooms. We stayed two personsin a deluxe room with two beds and we could not open our suitcases anywhere in the room except on top of the beds. Comparing this hotel to... More

Firstly, if you do decide to waste your money and stay here - the best and closest tube station is Earls Court and it’s a short walk. You can also use Gloucester Road if you use the district line, but Gloucester Road is closed until the end of 2014 for some services. Earls Court is much better anyway. We paid... More

We spent five nights at this hotel and enjoyed it thoroughly. If you are a walker, The V &A and other museums are a 15 minute walk. Within 20-30 minutes are Notting Hill, Portobello Road, Harrods, Hyde Park, Chelsea, Kensington Palace, and more. Also, a 5-7 minute walk takes you to either the Earls Court or Gloucester Road tube stations.... More

Great value for the money I paid. I have stayed here several times in the last few years and this hotel never disappoints. The Marriott in Kensington is a modern building with a glass front - you really feel like you are staying somewhere special. Friendly service, fantastic food and a nice bar. Overall a lovely stay at a very... More

Before considering to stay at this hotel, i saw that the ranking and the reviews overall were quite negative. Yet i decided to take the gamble (since the hotel matched the price and the location i was looking for). The location: it was a 5 minute walk to the Earls court station, and 8 minute walk towards Gloucester road station.... More

and that is not much. This is one of the worst hotels I have stayed in whilst in London. The room I was allocated on the ground floor was so small, even my suitcase could not fit on the suitcase rack as the rack was too small. I arrived early morning and with 3 pieces of luggage was not offered... More

Like most of the reviewers, we found this hotel to be both well tended and convenient to the tube and bus lines. Earl's Court station in a 6 minute walk, with the Piccadilly tube line and the District line able to whisk you away to most of the high value sites in the city.The staff is very international and unfailingly...
