The hotel is of usual Marriott standards. Good beds, excellent breakfast. I stayed in this hotel several times. I like its proximity to great South Kensigton museums and the quieter end of Hyde Park. Albert's Hall is also nearby.The location is also good for higher end shoppers. Harrod's, Harvey Nichols, Burberry are a short walk away. A lot of reasonable restaraunts are nearby. One tip - I would not recommend eating in Cromwell Road restaurants. Much more selection and better restaurants are close by in Earl's Court and Old Bromptoon Road. Cromwell Rd itself is busy and not very attractive. The area between it and Hyde park is much nicer. The one drawback I can think of - the hotel used to have swimming pool and sauna. They were closed this time - supposedly for renovation.
