Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Nice location just opposite Marylebone tube station
  • Full service spa with relaxing sanariums and a 15-meter pool
  • Elegant and classy ambience
  • Gorgeous central courtyard complete with a glass rooftop, palm trees, and pristine white stoned walls
  • Bright spacious rooms, even at entry-level category
  • Full range of event spaces in all shapes and sizes

Cons

Bottom Line

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.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Scene

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.

 Location

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.
