Oyster Hotel Review
Elegant and classy, with touches of luxury
With high Victorian ceilings, marbled archways, and a beautiful white stone-walled central atrium, the Landmark delivers in both elegance and period style throughout the common spaces -- particularly in the ultra-sophisticated restaurant and the grand lobby areas. Rooms are pleasant and neutral in decor, and despite the similar style of furnishings between rooms (black and white pillows with tribal animal silhouettes adorn many of the room categories), the hotel succeeds in avoiding a look that’s overtly corporate.
But all this elegance is cheapened by the fact that the hotel charges for use of amenities such as the fitness center and pool.
Just opposite Marylebone tube station, in the popular West End
Aristocratic Marylebone is generally a wealthy residential area and has been home to some well-known stars, including Guy Ritchie and Madonna, Jimi Hendrix, Yoko Ono and John Lennon, and Noel Gallagher of the band Oasis. On a more scholarly level, other notable residents have included Charles Dickens, H.G. Wells, and the fictitious Sherlock Holmes.

Pleasant and neutral, with plenty of floor space and big bathrooms
The nicest amenities -- the pool, relaxing sanarium, and fitness center -- come with a daily fee.
Fine European dining and two elegant bar options
- twotwentytwo Restaurant & Bar has original oak-wood paneling, sculpted ceilings, oversized mirrors and a wine library to complement its chic menu of modern European cuisine.
- Nestled under the dazzling glass rooftop amid soaring palm trees and white stone walls, The Winter Garden serves breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea, and dinner daily. There is live entertainment on Sundays.
- The Mirror Bar is furnished in distinguished shades of steel and charcoal, and serves a selection of the fine cognacs and whiskies, along with champagne and cocktails.
The 300-room Landmark is a beautiful and luxurious hotel located in the heart of aristocratic Marylebone. Key defining highlights are its spacious rooms, the fantastic central atrium with palm trees stretching up to a glass roof, and the sexy-and-sophisticated on-site restaurant. But the hotel's penny pinching puts a damper on the luxury feel -- basic amenities such as use of the indoor pool, fitness center, and Wi-Fi will result in additional lines to your bill.
