A neighborhood gem, The Marylebone appeals to both locals and tourists with its chic 108 Brasserie, distinctive décor and terrace suites with expansive outdoor space. Located within a short walk of Regents Park and Hyde Park, the area couldn’t be better. The studio and luxury suites are light and airy spaces with bold and colorful accents (some even have retractable roofs that offer city skyline views and all-weather terraces) and feature Aromatherapy Associates bathroom amenities. Hotel guests also enjoy complimentary access to Third Space, one of London’s premium members-only health clubs, located onsite. Third Space features the latest equipment, expert trainers, classes and a 60-foot swimming pool and a menu of health and beauty treatments.
The Cocktail Bar, The Marylebone’s newest hideaway, is a cozy, timeless hideaway inside the hotel. The winter lounge is the coziest of the spaces, enhanced by rich mohair and designed around a beautiful fireplace. The 108 Brasserie continental eatery offers all-day dining.
We spoke with general manager, Paul Walters, to learn more about the Doyle Collection property.
