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
My 3rd visit to The Landmark
This time to visit the spa with friends.
Good value £45 to use facilities for as long as you like fruit and water available. Towels etc.
Would use again
Then we went into the palm court for coffee and sandwiches . Which were very tasty. Great place to people watch. Their was a wedding on so great to see guests cake walking by.
Will be back
We are regulars and enjoy our stay again and again.
Large comfortable rooms and beds - good service/ friendly and professional front and back of house.
We can recommend the hotel and the restaurants and will definitely be back
This hotel is very close to the Marylebone train station. It appears quite fancy but after having stayed a couple of times, it is showing wear.
When I checked in during my first stay in the spring, they offered the breakfast at a discounted price if I booked it during check in. I was able to identify a morning I wanted to have breakfast at that rate. The deal did not continue during my second stay in the fall. The breakfast is quite good with a lot of options.
The rooms are very large and spacious. They offer an evening turndown service and daily water bottles. The bath products have a very strong scent so you have to like the scent.
They advertise the pool downstairs as a chlorine-free pool. I went inside the pool and it felt strange! How are they keeping that pool clean?
If you put your shoes out at night for the free shoe shine service, you pick up your shoes the next morning at the concierge.
