Assuming you want to say at a Marriott...the Marriott Park Ave is fabulously located. There are a couple others I have had recommended but have yet to stay in. My next reservation is the Marriott Maida Vale. Sounds good and well located.
FYI, the Marriott by Heathrow is easy to get to and from via the "Hotel Hoppa". If you take a left out of that Marriott and walk a couple blocks looking to your left at each street, you will find a real English Pub set back into the neighborhood a block. very worth it.
KevinS is correct that the Park Lane Marriott is in a great location, across the street from Marble Arch and Hyde Park. The only problem I had with it was that I got a room with two beds and they were singles, not even twin or doubles.
For a somewhat classier place, consider the Grosvenor Square Marriott, which is about two blocks away in the same Mayfair neighborhood.
Just down the street from the Park Lane is the Grosvenor Marriott, as well as Grosvenor Square Marriott. Both are just great and close to my favorite pub for food and refreshments, The Audley on Audley street.
Transportation is easily accessible, and if you desire to walk you can get to Harrod's, Soho, etc.
Don't forget Churchill's Musuem by Westminster Abbey, a neat place.
This information is great!
I agree with you and want to ask your advice on the Audley and Le Boujoulais by the Theatre district. I have been there and enjoyed them greatly.
Likewise, The Grenader Pub by Harrods is very special.
In closing, thanks again.
I agree with KevinS about the Heathrow Marriott. I was totally surprised by this property. The rooms are very large and the lounge was well equipped. While pricey, the restaurant was quite good.
Even though the hotel is across from one of the runways, it is not within walking distance to the airport terminals. The Hoppa Bus is convenient, with the exception of the wait time and the 8 Pound fare. Apparently the airport authority does not allow individual hotels to offer free shuttle service so us travelers have to pay for what we here in the U.S. consider a God given right.
