My wife and i are planning to stay in london for 3 days on june 6. We are using points so we have our choice for "central' London. Which hotel is best? Marriott Agent suggested  the Grosvner Marriott, or JW Marriott Grosnver Square or the St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel (newly remodeled Train Station)

Which hotel would someone recommend?

    My wife and I have stayed at many properties in London but our very favorite is the Park Lane. Great staff, close to everything, and nice rooms.

    It very much depends on what you want to do in London (is it your first time? )

     

    Assuming you want to do all the usual "tourist" things, then you will want a central location.

    Exclude any of the airport hotels (Heathrow / Gatwick) - Too far from city, nothing local and costly travel.

    I would also avoid the more outlying areas such as Canary Wharf and Twickenham - Travel by Taxi/Public Transport  required to get to most areas of interest.

     

    Of the numerous Central hotels , I would choose in the order ( but, you should check the individual websites for your own preferences )

     

    Marriott Park Lane

    Grosvenor House JW

    Marriott County Hall

    Marriott Grosvenor Square

    Marriott Kensington

    Marriott Marble Arch

     

    Good Value , but slightly  less central

    Marriott Regents Park  (good location for Zoo and Baker Street , etc)

    Marriott Maida Vale

      The Marriott Marble Arch is lovely and the service is great! I stayed there several times and would return again.

    I will just miss you as I'll be in London for 3 days leaving June 6th. I've read several raves about County Hall, but the price is too steep for me. I kind of like the Kensington for the gardens nearby & I think that St. Pancras is just gorgeous. I'm probably leaning toward Kensington at the moment, but it is my first time in London so don't count my advice for anything (though wherever I stay I'll be sure to report on it here.)

      I have stayed at the Kensington many times.  Good location, rooms so-so but full service breakfast comped if you have status.  Very friendly staff.  Also within a 5 minute walk to two tube stations.
