My wife and I stayed at the Marriott County Hall for 5 nights on our just completed trip to London...our first. I am a Marriott Rewards Gold member and used points for stay.
The hotel has a grand feel when you enter with lots of dark panel and deep red carpets. The location is good but we actually liked the Trafalgar Square area better (where we stayed our first 3 nights). The Westminister bridge is a zoo to cross. Very crowded and all sorts of gypsy types conducting games of chance to trick folks out of their money. People with snakes and costumes for photos, trinkets for sale, several food carts, and just an overall carnival feel. I was surprised they allowed all of this activity on such a busy bridge made even worse by all of the construction around Parliment and Westminster underground station.
We had a wonderful King room on the 2nd floor with windows that overlooked the Thames, Big Ben and the London Eye. While there was always activity under our windows after about 9:30pm it was quiet. The hotel has a set of double windows that really block out noise. The bathroom was of average size and provided toiletries of good quality except for bath soap. There was a tea kettle with complimentary teas and they left two packages of shortbread each day. We did have about a 150 yard walk from the elevator to our room but not complaining.
Since I am a Marriott Rewards Gold member we received access to the Executive Lounge that included a decent breakfast and free snacks, wine, beer and soft drinks from the late afternoon thru the evening plus complimentary internet. We were able to take bottled water to our room. Free Breakfast and internet saved us a bundle. We did not eat at any restaurant. We looked at the menu but felt it was expensive compared to pubs and other restaurants in the area.
The staff was friendly and helpful although we did not have a lot of interaction. Bellman were there to help with luggage and cabs and the front desk efficient. Housekeeping always cleaned the room early and delivered chocolates each evening.
We had a wonderful stay at the Marriott County Hall and would stay here again if the opportunity presents itself.
