Anyone who checks into The London Marriott County Hall will be immediately transported to another time, where British charm reigned and old world hospitality was not forgotten. As you wander through the wooden corridors of the hotel and up to the guestroom floors, you’ll notice that upstairs offers a whole other dynamic. The public spaces are more whimsical and offer a quirky vibe.
The historic property was built in 1922 as the former headquarters of the former London Country Council before evolving into a Marriott hotel in 1998. On November 3, the hotel reopened after a multi-million pound renovation that transformed everything from the inside out. From cheerful wallpaper featuring the classic bowler hat and brolly to curtains covered in a quirky pocket watch print and playful Art Deco carpeting throughout the corridors, the overall design boasts a cheeky sense of British humor.
Inside guestrooms, a vintage map of London covers the walls, perfect for plotting out your sightseeing routes. Bathrooms feature black-and-white tiled showers and the exquisite in-room dining options include items from their famous Gillray’s restaurant. Be sure to order a flaky croissant for breakfast, they are better than the ones in Paris, and their signature sherry trifle dessert is worth the extra calories.
