The Landmark Hotel London

Updated: Jul 16, 2021

The Landmark London is a five-star hotel on Marylebone Road, central London. Located right across from Marylebone station and within walking distance from Regent's Park, Madame Tussaud's, and Lords Cricket Ground, it was initially opened in 1899 as the Hotel Great Central by the Great Central Railway.

As one of London's grandest Victorian-era railway hotels, its popularity dropped after the introduction of motor cars and it fell out of hotel use for over 40 years. It served as a military office building and convalescent home during the Second World War, and later became the headquarters of the British Railways Board, being referred to by railway staff as "The Kremlin."

It reopened as a deluxe hotel in 1993 and has 300 guest rooms, including 51 luxurious suites that boast timeless classic style and grandeur.

Interesting fact: Right in the heart of the hotel there’s the most majestic eight-storey Winter Garden atrium, a dramatic glass-roofed courtyard, filled with towering lush plants, giant palm trees, and charming street lamp-style lights that highlight the glamorous ornate architecture and marble columns.
