London Marriott Kensington

147 Cromwell Rd., London, SW5 0TH, England

A big favorite for the business crowd, this pleasant, modern outpost of the Marriott megachain is just one of several big-name hotels on busy Cromwell Road. An enormous plexiglass frontage enlivens (and neatly soundproofs) the otherwise cookie-cutter exterior, but inside everything seems very shiny and modern. It's so geared to business travelers that the breakfast room empties by 8:30, but it's also about as smooth and well-run as you could hope for. Guest rooms aren't huge, but they're quiet and comfortable. There's a good bar, but you'll probably want to eat out.

PROS

  • friendly, efficient service
  • good neighborhood
  • one-minute Tube ride to Kensington museums

CONS

  • "could be anywhere in the world" business ambience feels impersonal
  • bedrooms are on the small side
