Nobody rents a hotel room just to watch television. But when the gogglebox is part of a spectacular 430 sq ft terrace with retractable roof and fireplace offering Mary Poppins-esque rooftop views of central London, you might think again.
It’s all part of the remarkable Marylebone Suite, one of three new signature spaces recently added to London’s Marylebone Hotel. While the 860 sq ft showpiece has a private bar, American oak, polished brass and a Julian Chichester dining table, its sister suites are no slouches either.
The Wimpole and the Harley have hardwood flooring and arabascato marble, both with private terraces, while the 108 Brasserie serves crispy pig cheeks and mammoth porterhouse steaks downstairs.
The hotel uses the estate agent-ly “Marylebone Village” to describe its location, but it’s fully justified, as Director discovered ambling through the café-and-boutique-strewn enclave. Both hotel and area will put a spring in the step of even the most curmudgeonly director.
