The staff at check in was uncooperative to the point of being belligerent. That certainly started the stay off wrong. I had booked for 5 nights, so was pretty much stuck. The hotel is located directly across the street from the Islamic Center of England if that is of interest. It is a 4 block walk to the Kilburn Park underground, then a 20 minute ride to Central London. The only point of "historical" interest in the near area is the Abbey Road Studios which is about a 25 minute walk. The hair dryer in the room was almost an antique and worked for only about 30 seconds before overheating, so had to call for another hair dryer. The Executive Lounge does not serve on Friday and Saturday nights although the website said it would serve. The staff in the lounge was very friendly, but they ran out of soft drinks 4 out of 5 days. I was told that they had to wait for delivery. When I called the restaurant manager, I found that they certainly had soft drinks in the restaurant, so would send up immediately. Staff just apparently did not want to bother getting from downstairs. The Concierge was very helpful. He even told me he would make phone calls to friends for me to avoid the huge per minute charge from the room. Internet worked well. One would be best to choose a Marriott in Central London. I am sure the front desk staff would be much nicer.
