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
Our stay at the Landmark we truly exceptional. Having frequented the Landmark Bangkok on many occasion, a stay at the Landmark London was a must. Being greeted by Zoltan after a long haul flight from Bangkok was delightful, before he unobtrusively whisked our luggage away. Andre was the next surprise in store as he graciously checked us in without a gesture of hesitation. After a very brief interaction with the expertise that is Richard, from Concierge, we headed to our delightful room! Good luck to anyone who ever has plans outside of the Landmark London, as the room is bigger than any other I have ever stayed in and with amenities to cover all tastes. A gentle tap at the door signalled the delivery of our luggage, and thank you to Miks who did so well with our unfortunately heavy luggage. Running out of words, so a final breakfast mention to Kemal and his wonderful team, and of course Malisa, Gary, Anastasia and Gregory for operating a wonderful reception. Last mentions to Helen and Maria for a delightful checkout! Will be returning for sure!
Don't get me wrong when I say historic. This one has nothing off the creaking floor boards or drafty windows that other historic luxury hotels beg you to apologise because of their age. Seems as if here revenue is being used to keep everything in great condition and up to date.
Big flat screen TV's noiseless and well stocked mini bars and seamless WiFi just to name a few. A bit quirky are the wardrobes in the bathroom, not sure if this is the same in every room though. Ours was facing the covered inner courtyard, no fresh air as no outside windows but with A/C and the possibility to watch the lively winter garden surely not an issue.
Staff throughout was knowledgeable and very attentive.. and what a breakfast!
We stayed Sat - Mon so there was a selections of cooked items on the buffet at the weekend and a range of cooked breakfast options to order Monday morning. The continental selection is amazing as well though! We enjoyed the atmosphere and cocktails at the highly recommendable Mirror bar with comfy seating and brilliant staff at hand as well.
The location also is great with covered access from Marylebone station on the back and access to Marylebone road on the front side. Lovely "very British" doormen great you on either side.
I can’t praise this hotel and staff enough. Everything about our stay was perfect. A must stay in London for me. Perfect location, brilliant staff, Management and customer service. Thank you and well done to all. We will be back.
Had a great stay at The Landmark. All the staff were very attentive. Muatasem Mousa in Reservations was particularly pleasant to speak to and very helpful. The location is great. Would definitely recommend staying here.
