MArriot Maida Vale to Oxford and Bond Street?

How far is it and how do I get there? By tube, or can I walk or my fav (taxi)

This journey is 3 miles. It's a direct tube journey from Kilburn Park, as you were told on the earlier thread.

It's obviously a painless and easy walk, unless you're very unfit, though you might not want to walk back with your shopping. The bus journey would be about 40 mins under typical traffic.

Why do you ask if you can get a taxi? Why would there be a reason why you couldn't?

of course I can get a taxi--it's just that sometimes a cab is really the best option and I don't mind hearing that. I'm kind of directionally challenged looking at maps and find I do better when I'm actually in a place. As well, I find all these maps that sort of attach and go onto the next area a bit confusing

Taxis are always the easiest option, they're private, and you might even have a pleasant conversation thrown in for free.

If the weather is good then walking is also perfectly acceptable and delightful.

Tubes are very utilitarian, no luxury or comfort.

Please let me know if you'd like any help with choosing pieces from this season's collection.

selltile, Just wanted to say that I stayed at this Marriott in June, 2003, and was very happy there. It was easy to catch a bus or get on the tube (very short walk to tube station). I thought the neighborhood was nice and the hotel itself was great. Our room was huge! Have a great trip!

About 15 minutes by bus. Can't believe those dept. stores.--you can buy anything and have a glass of champagne doing it!

Selfridges is awful, they've tried to cram too much into far too small a space. Their new Superbrands area is ridiculously laid out, and sadly the staff have no enthusiasm for what they sell. Harrods will always be king of London stores, and Harvey Nichols an ever chic queen.
