See London’s local side – in style

Coffee and croissants in a buzzing local deli give way to the sights and smells of a weekend food market. A stroll through a picturesque square leads to a chance find in a neighbourhood art gallery. A long lunch in a wooden-timbered pub is worked off with a wander through a centuries-old churchyard and a scour of the streets’ famous former residents. Finally, a spot of retail therapy across a clutch of smart boutiques or larger stores on Oxford Street before it’s back to unwind in the sanctuary of your sprawling hotel suite.

Meandering around Marylebone – without a map, without time constraints – is all the itinerary you need for a special weekend escape in the capital. For this is one of London’s most creative, most compelling neighbourhoods. With its vibrant creative streak and rich seam of independent bars, boutiques, chic cafes, pubs and markets, this is W1’s most bijou ‘village’. Culture vultures will be impressed by the contemporary artworks of the Rebecca Hossack gallery and the classical splendour of the Wallace Collection; from the Instagrammable dishes and immaculately dressed A-listers of the Chiltern Firehouse to the intimate confines and intricate sounds of Wigmore Hall. And best of all, you’re just a 20-minute walk to the bright lights of the West End.

Marylebone’s vibrant, compelling spirit is reflected in the hotel that shares its name. Within moments of entering the lively lobby, it’s clear that The Marylebone is a place where things rarely stand still. There is an energy to the hotel that is tangible at every turn – in the mosaic-patterned floor, the geometric wallpaper and the smartly waist coated staff, to the new lounge bar, where London’s who’s can be seen sipping exotic cocktails at dusk.

Those used to the finer things in life will find luxury loft living taken to a whole new level in the hotel’s Terrace Suites, by way of sleek contemporary style, a surfeit of space and expansive roof terraces.

From the moment you complete the exclusive in-room registration, everything you could possibly need is on tap: complimentary soft drinks and snacks; a selection of teas and coffees; newspapers, fresh flowers and fruit; your evening outfit pressed while a cocktail butler prepares pre-dinner drinks; and a dedicated point of contact on hand 24 hours a day, all come as standard.

Cocktails before dinner, anyone? Cocktails before dinner, anyone?

Those who prefer to cocoon themselves away will find the perfect environment for doing just that in their Terrace Suite – an extensive living and dining area, a compact kitchenette, and bathroom with rain shower and TV turn the suites into the equivalent of luxury apartments. And that’s before we get to arguably their prime attraction – the homely, heavenly covered terraces. With a gas fireplace and TV, comfy armchairs with throws, and a slate and cedar wood décor, these are city enclaves with a Scandinavian cabin-like feel.

For a bit of you-time, there’s the on-site Third Space gym, spa and swimming pool to indulge in, or make the most the innovative cooking style of Chef Russell Ford at 108 Brasserie.

Perhaps, among your new year’s resolutions, is a promise you made to yourself of an indulgent stay in the capital. Maybe you have a particular reason to celebrate in 2018 – an anniversary, a significant birthday. Or perhaps you don’t need any excuse for a weekend in the big smoke. Whatever your motivation for treating yourself, there are few more characterful, more perfectly positioned London neighbourhoods than Marylebone – and few more dynamic, chic hotels within which to base oneself than The Marylebone.
