I spent three nights at the Marylebone Hotel and the most striking feature is actually its location, which is conveniently close to Oxford Street for connecting to all other London zones via public transport, but also, and most importantly, is right in the middle of the Marylebone district, with its shops, bars and restaurants.
Upon arrival, we couldn't check in due to a problem with the IT system.
The staff was understandably frustrated with the nuisances this was causing to all arriving guests and did make some efforts to compensate, specifically by providing vouchers for free drinks at the very nice bar within the hotel (six in total, equivalent to almost 100 GBP).
The overall attitude of the staff was positive and sincerely apologetic (shout out to Zohora for being so kind with us!).
When we finally made it through check in, we were welcomed in a nice room. Contemporary furniture, adequately spacious (considering London standards), nice bathroom.
Housekeeping service has proved to be top notch for the entire duration of our stay.
The main issue, and the only one to be honest, was the bed size: a queen bed in what was called a doublebed room for two adults. While this may be practice for some hotels, it came as an awful surprise, given the standards this hotel apparently aims to set.
The bed was simply too small to comfortably accommodate two adults and three sleepless nights subsequently ensued.
Given the rates at this hotel and that sleeping well is the primary need that a room must satisfy, while objectively beautiful, I can't really support the Marylebone Hotel as much as I'd like to.
I would suggest evaluating other options unless you're booking business/suite rooms.
