With big chain hotels, this hotel always surprises me with how friendly and attentive the staff are, nothing is ever too much trouble, everybody greets you as you wonder about the hotel, from the reception staff to housekeeping. Great facilities and a great location, so easy for Earl's Court tube and the Piccadilly line. Thank you for yet another great... More

There were a number of pluses about this property. It is very well located. Secondly, the restaurant and front desk staff were everything and more that you would hope for in a chain hotel. At this hotel they redeemed a number of areas that were at best "ok". The other plus was the quality and variety on offer at breakfast.... More

I stayed one night in September after arriving in tge early morning at Heathrow before departing on a tour the next day. The price was very good for London and it was a short taxi ride from Paddington and the Heathrow Express. I arrived at the hotel around 8am and the reception staff at the front desk was able to...

This is a good choice for anyone travelling to London for the first time. If you're from Team USA, you'll feel right at home here as it feels like a Marriott that's like any typical Marriott, right down to the Starbucks in the lobby. Without the British accents, you'd never know otherwise. As I'm not a Marriott elite member, I... More

Right on Cromwell Road, with easy access to Earls Court and Gloucester Road tube stations, I found this Marriott a good choice for my recent trip to London. Rooms are a nice size (especially by London standards). The hotel has a restaurant (did not eat there) and a pub (did drink there). There is also carry away coffee bar right... More

From my arrival things didn't go so well and it seem that training and service could be significantly improved here. Despite arriving late and wanting to quickly stop in the lounge to grab a water, when I asked at the front desk where the lounge was located, I was scaled and told, "Wait until I have finished, then I'll tell...

I have just returned from a 2-night stay at the Kensington Marriott and was very impressed with the hotel in every respect. The room was lovely and spacious, the service was excellent, and the hotel is very conveniently located about 5 minutes walk from Earl's Court underground which is on the Piccadilly line with direct access into the West End....

Staying in South Kensington

Neighborhood Profile
South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall) such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming and cosmopolitan as it is reserved and residential, South Kensington is always a hit with visitors.
