From check-in to the restaurant to check-out the service was exemplary. If you want a great conversation, come visit the bar in Carluccio's and talk to Sarah, she'll make sure you are well taken care of. Between the staff and the great mixed drinks and an even better dinner, you can't really go wrong. The rooms are clean, the beds comfortable, and the location is perfectly suited for access to central London or some of the nicer northern areas. All in all, I would recommend this hotel if you have kids or even for business. It is value for money from my perspective. As I drove down from another part of UK, it would have been great if I could have access to the car park or if there is a short term parking by the hotel for me to unload my luggage and ensure all luggage is in the room before I return my rented car. Unfortunately, I was told by Marriott's staff that I park at my own risk just outside of Marriott's main entrance. Given I was with a kid, this situation could have been better managed as I am not looking at long term parking but just to ensure a proper check-in and my family is sorted out.
