I stayed at The Marylebone Hotel from Dec 20-22rd, 2013.......it was a great experience. Ironically an even more special (and memorable one!) as the courteous staff there assisted me re: some initial drama (my deal, not the hotel) minutes after arriving at the hotel..........
Upon checking-in after a looooooong non-stop from Los Angeles to London, I realized my wallet was missing from my handbag. A very frightening realization.....as it had my entire life in it. Yes, everything from credit cards, healthcare cards and my California drivers license. Scariest part, this was only day 1 of my 23 day overseas trip. Fortunately I was carrying some cash in pounds sterling that I had placed in a separate envelope in my bag. Anyways........ I had a strong sense that left my wallet somewhere at the airport vs. it being stolen. Gunther at the front desk along with Rahim (manager) helped call around and yes, we finally tracked it down at Heathrow - a miracle in and of itself!
Since my room had already been fully paid for (at the time of my online booking!), they allowed me to still check in to a room. I quickly dropped stuff off in my room and jetted off back to Heathrow. I was able to retrieve my wallet - thanks to some very honest store owners at the arrival lounge (where I stopped to buy something before taking the Heathrow Express in to London).
Back at the hotel, finally at 9pm........I came straight to the front desk to put a credit card down for incidentals during my stay......and Gunther, with a smile on his face handed me another card along with my credit card and said "I think you might need this tonight".......it was a card (voucher) for a complimentary drink at the bar. Super thoughtful.
180 Bar/ Lounge + Restaurant: very charming, great staff and delicious food.
I ended up having a drink and dinner at the hotel that same night. Everything was great.......vibe, staff, menu + food. I ordered the fish n chips and yes, a drink - an amazing cocktail......made with fresh juices and tons of mint leaves!
Overall, loved the intimate + beautiful boutique feel of The Marylebone Hotel......had a really nice hotel room w/a smallish bathroom (smallish by American standards, not European). Random side note = loved all the fittings in the bathroom + heated floors. Also, enjoyed the spa downstairs, healthy smoothies/ fresh pressed juices @180 juice bar and appreciated the courteous staff. Marylebone itself is a great neighborhood in London. Marylebone High Street = very charming so do check the area out!
I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend The Marylebone Hotel to anyone visiting London and considering booking a room here.........
