The aptly named Landmark Hotel captures both London’s history and a proper British sensibility. It first opened as one of the last great Victorian railway hotels in the late 1800s, and evolved through the eras of Gothic Revival and the Roaring Twenties into, eventually, the elegant property it is today. Designed by architect Robert William Edis, the north entrance has all the glamour of ‘The Golden Age of Steam’, with intricate corniced ceilings, glittering chandeliers and a sweeping staircase. The vast palm tree-filled central courtyard lets in acres of light through its impressive eight-storey glass atrium, while the modern spa boasts a state-of-the-art gym and a 50-foot swimming pool.
Bed and Bath
By London standards, the 300 rooms and suites are spacious, averaging almost 600 square feet, they feature a spot-on blend of history and haute amenities with a mix of modern and Victorian-style furnishings, thick carpets and a soothing pale yellow palette, along with flat screen TVs, gleaming bathrooms and quintessentially British Molton Brown toiletries.
There’s an array of eateries at the Landmark Hotel; try the impressive Winter Garden Restaurant in the central courtyard for its popular Sunday Jazz Brunch or an atmospheric afternoon tea. The cozy wood-clad twotwentytwo restaurant provides a complete contrast to the airy atrium and dishes up modern-European cuisine, while the Mirror Bar is perfect for late-night cocktails. There’s also a very well-appointed spa which offers a creative reworking of traditional treatments, from the Sanarium, a sauna that includes relaxing music and a light show, to the ayurvedic treatments, which range from a four-hand massage to hot stones with spice-enriched oils.
How to Get There
From the largest to the smallest detail, everything about the Landmark evidences a vanishing era of elegance thoughtfully and carefully brought up-to-date. Rooms are large and well-appointed. Service from all members of staff is friendly and efficient. Dining in the central atrium was a highlight of our trip. Can't recommend highly enough.
The room we were in at the Landmark was--by far--the largest we have ever had outside the U.S. And it was lovely as well.The hotel is a block from Marleybone Station, so a great location for getting anywhere else you'd like. But the hotel's quality is what really counts here. Good breakfast, lovely bar, and a fine dinner in the atrium. And, I must add, friendly staff--particularly a very helpful concierge desk. Sorry to post this so long after the stay, but we've been traveling since.
