Our OpinionA very elegant, large hotel. The star shaped design of the building means all rooms face outwards. The best views are on the 7th and 8th floors. Great restaurants.
Very good location next to Regent's Park, Fitzrovia, Primrose Hill, and Marylebone, and close to Warren Street and Great Portland Street tube stations. I really like the the personal training sessions on Tuesdays and Thursdays, far better than just going to the gym.
Stayed here for a couple of nights whilst on business. First thing to note, it was exceptionally busy when I arrived with a large contingent attending a function in the hotel and all milling around the lobby. This didn't seem unusual, as pretty well every time I went through the lobby area, there seemed to be some function or other going on with hordes of disorientated delegates looking for directions. Once I'd fought through to the check in desk, had to wait 10 mins to check in, which when I got there was efficient enough. Room was small but had everything I needed, including fridge and kettle etc. Bed comfortable, quiet overnight despite close proximity to Marylebone rd. Bathroom a tight fit, but well equipped. Free hotel wifi. Lifts to upper floors are the weirdest I've seen - you have to dial the floor you want before getting in, and are directed to one of 4 lifts, with no floor buttons inside to press at all. I had no reason to eat in the hotel save for breakfast, which was entirely buffet, although you could have custom made omelettes. Plenty of choice, although do check the sausages - some are chicken and tough as old boots, whereas the pork ones are ok. Standard fruit and cereals, but oddly no muesli. Service is hit and miss, staff are hard pressed, not unhelpful but are basically too busy to be anything but polite. Location is handy for Oxford street shopping, and a tube from close by Warren Street takes you (2 stops)direct to Leicester Square for evening entertainment. Regent's Park is just around the corner. The building is 1930s in style externally but you wouldn't know from inside. I recall coming here as a child in the 1970's, when they had a swimming pool ( I think it's now the gym and the Place restaurant) but there's none of that character visible now. For a middle range London hotel for a short stay it does fine. Just don't expect personal service or luxury frills.
The service was impeccable, staff were very friendly and so good that they almost anticipate what you will ask for next.Wanted to highlight the gem of your firm, Archna Nandwani, who will make me come back again to this hotel. I must say that she cared for every single detail since the moment i entered this hotel. I must admit that i felt like in paradise, cheers for melia white lane for having such a valuable and active asset in the firm. Nisha Chablani
A disappointing experience. The room was shabby and dark, with grubby lace curtains, worn veneers and poor quality toiletries. The decor is heavy and oppressive and the bed far too big for the room. For what they are charging, you will find much lighter, smarter more tasteful hotels in London. Go elsewhere.
Upon our arrival my friend and I had to wait a short while to check-in. When we eventually did get served we found it difficult to understand the lady who (amongst many staff) spoke broken English - we found there was a communication problem on a couple of occasions.The hotel foyer and corridors look grand, however when we got to our room, it had dirty walls and was not at all practical. There was not enough room for 2 women to get ready! The bathroom was tiny, with the toilet water trickling constantly, the noise became annoying during the night! The water in the sink did not drain straight away and the shower is poky. The bath is quite high, not making it easy for small people like me to clamber in and out of to use the shower, the area being very narrow.The hairdryer is in the bathroom and the handle hot to touch. Again not practical when you're waiting to dry your hair but your friend is in the shower.The bed and pillows were uncomfortable, I tossed and turned all night.Breakfast was okay and I was pleased to see a gluten free area. The only thing I would say about the dining room is how close the tables are together. We were practically sat with another couple when there were other tables free. I wouldn't want to stay here again.
