“Some neighborhood advice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2011

I've stayed at the hotel many times - it suits me in terms of location and facilities. I've always had a comfortable room - especially the bed. I agree with many reviewers the bathrooms are pretty tiny but mine have always been functional. The front desk staff has been inconsistent in terms of helpfulness but I have always had good experiences with the rest of the staff - management, housekeeping, friendly doormen and bar staff.
I've read many reviews regarding the area just around the hotel and want to share a few things - yes Edgeware Road is lined with Middle eastern cafes with a lot of outdoor seating. I actually like this as I find the area quite safe late at night (I grew up in Manhattan so I like to see a lot of people around.)
If you explore the area a bit further here's what you will find - a couple of streets to the east is a rather nice residential area. On Seymour Street (going south) are a couple of pubs and a few pleasant restaurants and cafes. A bit further on is Portman Square and Wigmore Street.
I also really like Biaggi's (old world Italian) on Upper Berkeley Street.
If you cross Edgeware Road (going west on Connaught Street) and walk a couple of blocks you will pass the square where Tony Blair lives, and then come to a little area which I believe is known as Connaught Village. There are some lovely shops (eg Jimmy Choo) , a fun pubs that a real "local" called the Duke of Kendal, and some nice restaurants including Colbeh's.

There's really quite a bit around this hotel in several directions - it just takes a bit of exploring. In addition , the bus transportation is fantastic.There are around 10 different bus routes from Edgeware Road - the 6, 15 and 23 go to the West End and theatre area. The 15 also goes down Fleet Street etc all the way to the Tower of London. The 7 goes to the British Museum. The 414 goes to Harrod's and the V and A. The bus is not as fast as the tube but you get a great look at the city and it costs alot less than the tube.

Have just stayed at the Marriott Marble Arch through the weekend with my wife and two teenage boys, and this hotel fully lived up to expectations. When you share a room (premier double) the price per person is actually quite reasonable, and the the facilities (fitness, pool and executive lounge access) were first-rate. Full English breakfast was included and it was quite sumptuous, remember to order waffles, eggs anyway you like, if you so desire. The staff was polite, helpful and available, but not in anyway overeager in order to help out. When taking a cab, remember to specify the address (George Street), otherwise you might end up at Marriott Park Lane, which is infact just in front of the Marble Arch (we did!). Free internet, great food at the Brasserie and express check-out without any fuss. What´s not to like? Will be back in April, and we are all looking forward to it.

This Marriott is a centrally located one but I would expect a bit better on the following points :
. Swimming pool : on the website looks huge & nice. In reality the hygienic conditions are poor. People with shoes cross the hall where guests have to walk in their bathing suits barefooted. Simply disgusting & not hygienic at all. At least offer the guests some simple sauna slippers to cross that hallway down !
. Bar : nice cosy bar. On the list "fresh orange juice". It was not fresh at all & anybody could taste this was from a bottle. Don't put "fresh" & we would be less upset.
. Minibar : No place to put something personal & when we asked to empty the minibar to have some space for our stuff the reply was : "there is a 6 day leadtime to arrange this, you should have asked 6 days ago". Cannot believe that this is the customer service you get when paying GBP 460/night ...
. Location is indeed central, a 5 minute walk to Marble Arch but next time would stay at the nearby located Durrants hotel which is half price & as convenient.

The location is not that bad , so close to many restaurant at edgware road and few meters walk from oxford street .
What i didn’t like is the housekeeping , they did not check the mini bar ,the guest that was in the room left some food there and it stayed until i complained ,but too bad no one even tried to call me to apologize for this mistake although i was staying in an executive room !!!!!!

This hotel is in a very ethnic middle east part of town off of main road. It was clean and quiet, but for those not culturally diverse, the location and surrounding culture may not be most comforting. If you have PTSD from 9/11, this is not location for you.

We stayed at this hotel in late November.The Marble Arch tube station was a bit of a hike from the hotel. The area around Edgeware Road is very Middle Eastern.There are a lot of restaurantsand hooka bars. I found it very interesting and the neighborhood seemed safe.
The room was very nice and clean. There was an American style outlet so we could recharge our gadgets without using an adapter. We ate at the bar one evening.The food and service were good. On our last morning my husband got in the shower and ran out of cold water. He had to rinse the soap from his hair with some bottled water we happened to have. Even the water in the toilet was hot. I have stayed at hotels and have run out of hot water but never cold.
