The Landmark London Hotel Review

Located on Marylebone Rd. in London, The Landmark London is one of the most famous five star hotels in the city. Conveniently located across the Marylebone subway, The Landmark London is the embodiment of old world class and luxury.

Greeted by men in top hats and coat tails, you’ll feel as though you’ve traveled back in time. Step through the doors into the indoor – outdoor – lobby and take in the bright light and lush foliage. The beauty of The Landmark is that no matter the weather outside, it’s a perfect sunny day inside – which is vital when you’re vacationing in rainy London.


The History

The Landmark London has a celebrated history. In 1894, Sir Edward Watkin – known as “Last King of the Railways” – wanted to combine railway lines to create the Great Central Railway, Marylebone Station and a grand hotel to service its passengers. In 1897, the architecture of the hotel was commissioned from Col. Robert Edis. At the time several luxury hotels were popping up throughout London, including the Savoy and the Hotel Cecil which established high standards of luxury and magnificence. Edis designed the hotel around a vast courtyard, twice the size of the one in the original Savoy, which would allow light into the guest rooms.

During the World War I, hotel attendance suffered and in 1914 the hotel was turned into a convalescent home for officers. The hotel reopened after the war, and thrived again. Since then the hotel has been at the center of many important moments. Including the capture of SS member James Brady. Today, the hotel is considered one of the best places to stay in London.


The Location

The weather is often gloomy in London, so where you stay will very likely determine your level of enjoyment. There’s much to see and do in London, but everything is spread out in such a way that makes walking difficult, especially when raining. The Landmark’s proximity to the Marylebone station makes it a prime location. It’s walking distance from Baker Street, and a short train ride to historic locations like Kensington Palace, Big Ben and Harrods. Traveling by train is the most common form of transportation, but taxis and Ubers are also available.
