I’m quite familiar with the Doyle Collection because I’ve stayed at The Kensington on my last trip to London. This time, I was incredibly excited to visit another one of their properties. This was of course at The Marylebone.
The property is nestled in a very quaint neighborhood with lots of character. I also visited their 108 Brasserie during my stay, and you’ll have to read about my dinner there in a separate article.
The hotel has a unique flair that says they’re about quality but also, not overly serious. My suite was on the third floor, and quite large. The theme for the interior design was chic with lots of blues and greens. They have utilized many interesting patterns on the curtains and the pillows which made it feel very homey. There was a TV that was built into the mirror in the living room, a nice touch.
The green and blue color scheme continued into the bathroom and also marble was added. This design made it very bright. There were both a full bathtub and giant shower. Pierre approves.
A feature that I really enjoy about the property were their terrace suites. These weren’t just basic outdoor seating areas, they offered completely livable terraces with fireplaces and televisions. On a tour of the property, I got to view a few of them. All had roofs that could retract, perfect for nice weather in the summer or close them up to listen to the rain.
The hotel is connected to a members only gym and pool. The gym is great for people that are interested in a wide variety of equipment. You will never have to wait for equipment to use. Also, there is a large lap pool down just one floor. Last but not least, the members gym offers a sauna and a very beautiful steam room. Great lighting indeed.
I really felt that the staff at The Marylebone hotel treated me with great respect and care. When I was out to dinner at their 108 Brasserie, which you can read about in a separate article, they delivered a bottle of whiskey and apple chips to my room. A perfect nightcap.
The next morning I woke up revitalized, and ready to start the day. After getting ready, I headed down to their 108 Pantry for breakfast. This is connected to the brasserie but offers a more casual dining experience. I ordered one of their green vegetable juices and I felt healthy. I’m on a constant quest to find the best English breakfast in England. and therefore, I had to try the traditional English breakfast. It was a great breakfast and I must say that the black pudding was on point!
All in all, the stay was smooth and left a strong sense of quality. The food at breakfast was superb and I loved the location. The overall design of the property was very comfortable. This is the type of hotel that goes above and beyond, offering a much more unique touch than the bigger hotel brands. Without a doubt I would definitely recommend staying at The Marylebone hotel in London!
