WHERE Located in Marylebone, within the City of Westminster, and built in 1899 the Landmark London was once a grand Victorian railway hotel.
THE VIBE Red brickwork façade evokes a grandeur that continues throughout the hotel in the form of a marble fireplace, Victorian paintings, intricate relief ceilings and ornate gold chandelier. Think old-school charm with an international clientele.
THE ROOM Our spacious Atrium suite with separate living area overlooks the hotel’s focal point atrium. The muted palate is both elegant and welcoming, with details like a Nespresso machine and iHome system.
DINING Two rosette Winter Garden is a celebration of British produce. Order the citrus cured salmon with Cornish crab, buttery seared diver scallop and cauliflower – a beautiful homage to England’s Southwest coast. Follow with the roast fillet of sea bass served with crab salad, brown shrimp and zingy lemon dressing. For dessert, the pure chocolate is a delicate yet rich expression of ganache, milk chocolate mousse, and tonka bean ice cream- the gold leaf is a royal touch.
DON’T MISS In the centre of the hotel, the expansive eight-storey glass roof atrium (with soaring palm trees no less), is home to Winter Garden restaurant.
