Nothing wrong intrinsically wrong with the Sumner Hotel, however, if you stay there avoid the basement room(s). The bedrooms are very well appointed for this level of hotel, good furnishings, good A/C (needed as outside it was +30 C) and a super sized TV; the challenge is the room is immediately below the entrance to the hotel, so every time...

The hotel i located perfectly close to Oxford street and Hyde park, which was what we wanted. Everything else is just a quick cab drive or tube ride away, yet the area was quiet and nice. The staff was very polite and service minded. The room was clean, surprisingly spacious and a good bed. Bathroom was nice and clean as... More

The Sumner Hotel is a fantastic spot for visiting London. Mayfair is a beautiful neighbourhood and it is well worth it discovering it on foot. The hotel is well appointed and the staff is very professional. The upgrades and renovations have made it even more pleasant. One little draw back is that you have to carry your suitcase half a...

I'm reluctant to rate this too highly because I don't want this gem of a hotel to become too well known and not be able to accommodate us in the future. I researched lots of places to stay in London. The Sumner was in Rick Steves guidebook and also had very good reviews on Trip Advisor. Now we know why...... More

Only a one night visit but a perfect location close to Oxford street and Park Lane. You can even park your car outside the congestion zone and easily walk to the Sumner. Breakfast was surprisingly good with both continental and hot breakfast available in small but well stocked room. Appreciated the air conditioning too on a warm evening in London.

Staying in Marylebone

Neighborhood Profile
Marylebone
Marylebone offers what so many London neighborhoods cannot: a village feel coupled with urban convenience. Much of its success rests in its location. Wedged between the northeastern corner of Hyde Park and the southern end of Regent's Park and with a number of Tube stations within easy reach, Marylebone is as pedestrian friendly as Central London gets. The bustling shopping mecca of Oxford Street separates it from Soho and Mayfair, exclusive Regent Street marks its border with Fitzrovia, and cosmopolitan Edgware Road serves as its western edge. Within this enviably situated quarter are an array of outstanding restaurants (from Michelin darlings to down and dirty cheeseburgers), an impressive assortment of independently owned shops, and some of the city's quietest and most pleasant nooks, crannies and cobbled lanes.
