We stayed at the Marylebone Hotel for our honeymoon in August 2013. We wanted a place that was a little away from the hustle and bustle but still close to restaurants and transportation. The Marylebone was wonderful. It's a beautiful place, situated a few blocks from Oxford Street in a quieter neighborhood (if you don't count the kind of hilarious piano bar catty corner from it). When we checked in, they offered us a handicap-access room for the extra space, and they threw in a free bottle of champagne. We realized a few hours later that it wasn't quite what we needed and asked to be relocated. The staff were very helpful in moving us to a regular room, moving the luggage (and the champagne!) while we explored the neighborhood. Our second room, while smaller, was cozy and inviting with dark wood decor. The desk area had outlets for a variety of plug-types and an iPhone doc. The bed was comfy, and the curtains blocked out the morning light (allowing us to accidentally sleep in way too late).
While everyone we met on the staff was helpful, we were particularly impressed by and grateful for the concierge (pretty sure her name was Alex?). We spent part of every day gathering info from her on where to go and how to get there. She got us our hop-on/hop-off bus tickets and pointed us to a number of good restaurants. She was terrific -- really knowledgeable and approachable.
We stopped into the hotel's restaurant late one night for dinner, but the music was blaringly loud and not conducive to a nice meal, so we left before ordering. As a result, we have no opinion on the food. The menu seemed pretty limited and overpriced.
Overall, we loved our stay there. We loved wandering home after a long day to our quiet corner. If we make it to London again, we'll be sure to come back.
