We stayed at the London Marriott Hotel Regents Park for two nights.
We booked through Priceline and upon arrival, we were given a smoking room, which was not so pleasant for us non-smokers. The room absolutely reeked of smoke and even the walls were turning a bit yellow. We had to keep the windows open all day and night because of the overwhelming stench. Otherwise the room and bathroom were fine.
The staff were friendly and professional and really apologetic that they could not offer us a non-smoking room as none were available at the time.
The location could be better, in fact calling it Regent's Park is a bit pushing it in my opinion, as the actual park is nearly a mile away from the hotel. The location is not central by any standards. Nevertheless, Swiss Cottage is a nice and safe residential area away from the main tourist crowds and where you see regular Londoners.
Transport connections were also a downside of the location as the Jubilee Line tube at Swiss Cottage was closed due to engineering works during our whole stay. The replacement bus rides took ages to get anywhere from Swiss Cottage so we often went to Chalk Farm in Camden to catch the tube from there.
Overall, considering the cheap rate we paid, the stay was ok, although a bit marred by the unpleasant room. Nevertheless I think there are better areas to stay in London.
