The Marylebone Hotel

The Marylebone Hotel is home to the best private terrace in central London. A pretty bold statement, but until someone shows us (or better yet, invites us to visit) another 432sq ft patio complete with a TV, an outdoor fireplace and views of the Shard, we’re standing by it.

Suite Life

The gorgeous terrace is all yours when you’re staying in the Marylebone Suite, the jewel in the crown of the refurbished hotel just a short walk from Bond Street. Not that you’ll be particularly inclined to hit the shops when you could be reclining on a sofa and surveying the city from your lofty perch above Welbeck Street. Too chilly? The heaters and the outdoor fire will take care of that. Raining? They’ve thought of that too (this is London, after all) – simply flick a switch and a retractable roof will slide over the terrace to keep you warm and dry.

Needless to say, the inside isn’t too shabby either. The decor is sleek and modern, with an element of fun thanks to some quirky design touches. The ’60s inspired orange coffee table adds a splash of colour, and we might have tried to take the fluffy lamp home if only the duck feet shaped stand had fit into our suitcase. More of an apartment than a hotel room, the suite has everything you need for an indulgent night in; a TV that borders on cinema-screen proportions, shelves stacked with fashion books and board games, and a mini bar chock-full of treats.

A Smooth Start

We’re all about a room service breakfast, especially when we can eat it al fresco with a view of London’s roof tops. But our favourite part of The Marylebone’s breakfast was ordering a fresh smoothie from The Juicery to go with it. A new addition to the hotel’s restaurant, 108 Pantry, the menu of fresh juices, smoothies and shakes was devised with the help of nutritionist to the stars Amelia Freer, the woman responsible for singer Sam Smith’s recent lifestyle overhaul. Ordering your morning eggs with Freer’s Glowing Greens smoothie on the side makes waking up here even sweeter.


If you’re not the type to let a holiday get in the way of your fitness routine, the hotel has you covered. Guests have access to The Third Space, a state-of-the-art members-only wellness centre, where they can work up a sweat alongside Marylebone’s elite. As befits an exclusive gym in the heart of London, The Third Space is equipped for everything from yoga and pilates to spinning and combat classes. There’s also a Powerplate zone and a retro gym complete with climbing ropes and a gymnastics beam and bar. Pack your bikini for a post workout dip in the ozone-treated swimming pool.

Sweet Treats

Would a weekend in England’s capital be complete without scones and clotted cream? We’re not so sure. Afternoon teas are ten a penny now in London, but if you’re after a less formal alternative to some of the city’s stuffier venues, the hotel’s Pantry 108 is a great option. You can enjoy the traditional dainty sandwiches, crumbly scones and decadent cakes – plus the option of that all important glass of fizz – in a relaxed, light-filled restaurant buzzing with diners tucking into lunch. If you let them know in advance, Pantry 108 can whip you up a dairy or gluten free version, so the intolerant among us don’t have to miss out.

Location, Location, Location

After that terrace (did we mention the terrace?), the best thing about The Marylebone Hotel is its location. The shops, restaurants and cafes of bustling Marylebone are right on your doorstep, and a 10-minute walk will take you to Oxford Street. The designer stores of Bond Street are also close by, or head to Regent Street for a browse in Liberty, London’s most beautiful department store. Once you’ve worked up an appetite, stroll on into the heart of Soho and take your pick from every cuisine you can think of. Team EW recommends Cafe Boheme for a pre-dinner cocktail, or Brindisa for tasty tapas.
