We were invited to review The London Edition.
Myself and the 3 DC planned our overnight trip to London with lots of excitement - we live in Bath and although the tube is no longer novel for me, they really love a trip to the big smoke every now and then.
We arrived at The London Edition, which is a Marriot hotel following a very short walk from Tottenham Court Road tube, it's very easy to find and brilliantly located just behind Oxford Street with easy access to several tube stations and if you're brave, Hamleys
When we arrived, our bags were taken straight to our room while we checked in, the service was exceptional, all staff were attentive, engaged with the children and really made us feel very welcome. We had a suite with adjoining rooms, the children were particularly pleased with the TV in their room and iPad to play with.
When we arrived there was a note for the DC with a glass of milk and cookies waiting for them (and a gorgeous mini salted chocolate tart for me) and the rooms were just perfect, with everything you could want. There was a bath and a shower, so my shower-nervous five year old was in her element, they also had a tent bed for her which was london themed and had a tunnel attached. It wasn't an issue getting her to get into bed
The rooms were immaculate and anything you could want was on offer, from the mini bar, to coffee machine and snacks for the children. They also provide a movie night for the DC with popcorn if you ask.
We also had breakfast the following morning, the children were stupidly excited to sit in the gorgeous dining room. The only thing I would have liked to have seen was a more child friendly menu. My son is not an adventurous eater and the eggs benedict or full english wasn't really to his taste, although when asked, they brought Marmite on toast in minutes.
My youngest had buttermilk pancakes which were amazing.
This hotel really is the sort of place you'd go to for a real treat. The service was exceptional, the rooms left nothing wanting and were spacious and welcoming for any family. It is centrally located for all things, we visited the Princess Diana Memorial Park, watched the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace and popped over to The Natural History Museum, all within a short bus or tube ride from the hotel. If you want things on foot, then you are in the heart of Oxford circus, and easy trip over to Covent Garden and shops and restaurants galore.
There is a children's guide to London in the children's room when you arrive which is full of ideas and suggestions if you don't know what to do.
I would go to The London Edition again with my children for a special treat.
