Finding a quiet corner in London is near impossible but in Marble Arch, a neighborhood replete with great shops and restaurants, the Arch London is a boutique property that evokes a quiet oasis a world away from the hustle and bustle of the capital city. Madonna and the Beatles seemed to think so too, as the former’s London abode is across the street. Nearby is a home purchased by Ringo Starr in 1965 and subsequently leased to John Lennon and Yoko Ono and later to Paul McCartney.

Entering the posh lobby of the Arch further enhances the feeling of peace and calm.

Upon our arrival, my traveling companion, FBT Editorial Director Jonathan Spira, and I were warmly greeted and quickly checked in and shown to our room.

THE ROOM

Our spacious Executive Junior Suite had a spacious sitting area that felt distinctly separate from the bed area. With a modern décor steeped in beige and gray with striking wallpaper, it was clear that the designer gave great thought as to how guests would use the room. The rather comfortable king size bed allowed for a restful night’s sleep.

The minibar was stocked with complimentary soft drinks and juices and a coffee maker and water cooker were also at hand. The in-room safe was designed to hold a laptop and included an outlet for charging its battery.

The generously sized bathroom had a large soaking tub and the hotel provides Malin & Goetz products as well as a bath pillow for the guests’ convenience. The tub featured the largest waterproof flatscreen television we’ve ever seen.
