In May of 2015 we will be taking our 2 week vacation in Europe. We know we want to stay at your Marriott in County Hall for several nights. After that - which Marriotts would you recommend we stay at in order to see other attractions in London within walking distance of the hotel?
We look forward to extending a warm welcome here at the London Marriott County Hall. We are probably the Marriott in London with the best location for local attractions in London. Please feel free to contact the hotel directly, so that we may respond to all your questions and hopefully be able to assist to plan a brilliant visit to London in 2015.

London Marriott Hotel, County Hall
You made the right choice by staying at the Marriott, since it is practically in the heart of all historic buildings and close to main streets and avenues where you can take any of the red tour buses that can take you to other attractions that may be a little bit farther.
I would not consider changing hotels, since for it was very convenient to move around from there.
I can't really help you much on this, but the Marriott brand is consistently good wherever you go. I agree with SandEMuel in that The County Hall is very well placed for all the major sights in London, and for the few which are a little outside walking distance, the underground Tube system is excellent for getting around. So stay there with confidence, and enjoy !
To be perfectly honest with you Patti, County Hall is so centrally located, you won't need to stay anywhere else. Grosvener and Park (which overlooks Hyde Park) are not close to the fun pubs across the Jubilee Bridge, the Globe theatre, and all that the South Bank has to offer. We WALKED to Buckingham Palace from County Hall. We WALKED to Picadilly Circus and the shopping area. Again, we are walkers (in our 60s) . The only time we took the tube was to Camden. Westminster Abbey is just across the bridge, too. You can see Big Ben from your room. You can board a boat right outside County Hall and ferry the Thames. If you stay at Grosvenor or Hyde, you will find that the majority of your sightseeing is towards the South Bank. We stayed 5 nights here, and walked late at night to and from the pubs. The nice thing about the South Bank is there are always little scheduled festivals. When we were there, they had a small art fest and wine fest. FYI...If you walk the entire South Bank, you will run into Borough Market..the greatest Market you will ever shop. Right next to it, is the Globe Pub...where Bridget Jone's Diary was filmed.!! Good luck. I'm glad to see you are doing your research early.
It's hard to beat the location of Marriott London County Hall - so close to Westminster Abbey, Hyde Park & theaters in one direction, & the Globe & South Bank markets in the other. While I haven't stayed there, I have a colleague who loved the JW Marriott Grosvenor Square, which is in the middle of many city sites. We did eat at St. Pancras on our way to Paris via Eurostar & it's a beautiful hotel, but there's not much around the hotel for walking.
Have a wonderful trip!!
We only stayed at the London County Hall Marriott and on our last night the London Marriott Heathrow airport. Totally appreciated both properties but the airport location was basically for an easy commute to the airport. We did not walk or explore the area around this property. The London County Hall Marriott was so perfect for walking to tons of sites! Wish I could be more help, I totally want to go back to London - Loved it!
