Marriot International made two major announcements last week regarding properties in London.

One was regarding the fast upcoming and trendy Shoreditch area, and the other, and always fashionable, Kensington.

The Montcalm East, Autograph Collection, is in City Road, opposite the world-famous Moorfields Eye Hospital.  The 288-guestroom hotel reflects the vibrancy and imagination of the area by providing a space for people to meet, generate new ideas and become co-creators of their stay experience.  Rain showers, underfloor heating, free wi-fi and plenty of mod-cons are included.

London Marriott Hotel Kensington has unveiled its new design following a multi-million-pound refurbishment. The property’s 226 newly designed guestrooms have been reimagined in the spirit of Kensington Palace with illustrations and paintings from the nearby Victoria and Albert Museum and the Museum of Natural History, whilst the redesigned bathrooms offer a contemporary feel also with spacious walk-in showers and sleek vanity units. This ambiance continues through into the hotel’s recently transformed public areas and London’s first Cast Iron Bar & Grill.

The London Marriott Hotel Kensington is situated on the Cromwell Road within a short walk of Gloucester Road Underground Station.
