Best Marriott Hotel in London?

If you had to pick one of these Marriott's to stay in, based on location, how nice the hotel is, service, etc - which would you pick? Or is there a different Marriott you would choose in London?

London Marriott Hotel Park Lane
London Marriott Hotel County Hall
London Marriott Hotel Kensington

(Grosvenor Square is disqualified b/c of certain reward redemption restrictions)

Can compare County Hall and Chancery Court and the latter wins hands-down. County Hall is t'other side of the river - not to far to walk over Westminster Bridge and very handy of the Eye (in fact you might get a very good view our or your window and teh passengers in). Chancery Court is a short walk to Convent Garden and threatre district. Also CC nicer hotel than CH. CH rooms are in need of a bit of a re-furb CC are top notch

Only thing I would add is that at the CH you can actually get a room with a balcony overlooking the Thames if that is any sort of issue for you.

Or you could get a room that seems a 5 minute walk from the lifts

County Hall rooms are mixed - have only stayed there twice and both times the room was a bit "faded" but that couold be because they still have the flowery approach an i have become so used to solid cover duvet as opposed to floral bedspread. Have a look on the Marriott web page for some pic

Try requesting a river view room - they are supposed to be better

Sorry should have read more closely - Park Lane location might be better - you are about the same distance from the west end but you have Hyde Park right on your doorstep. I find Kensignton a bit out of things

Of those 3 I'd take County Hall hands down. Park Lane would be 2nd choice and 3rd, Kensington (just a bit too far from the sites)

County Hall is in a marvelous location - most rooms have great views up river, down river, or across the river to Big Ben. The Eye is right outside and Westminster Abbey just across the bridge. You would be walking distance to all of the south bank arts venues, the Globe, Trafalgar Square, etc.
