The venue sourcing team at Flavour Venues and Events find that first-hand experience is the best way to recommend the right venues to our clients. Our September 2023 London research visit brought us to The Marylebone. This handsome property near Bond Street, Mayfair and Soho offered luxurious tranquillity in a popular part of town. With excellent travel connections and a wealth of nearby shopping, dining and entertainment, The Marylebone is perfectly positioned for leisure guests, plus business stays and corporate events.

The Marylebone houses a premium collection of 252 bedrooms and suites set across 7 floors. Ours featured a gigantic and extremely comfortable bed, in a room which was well insulated from any outside street noise. Such features as a workspace, safe, smart TV and minibar are a welcome touch for business travellers like us. Luxury toiletries, robes, slippers, and premium technology made our stay even more special. The room was spacious and lavishly decorated to a timeless fashion, ensuring a great sleep and a relaxing stay.

We were given a comprehensive tour of the communal areas and event spaces by Stephanie, MICE Sales Manager for The Doyle Collection (to which The Marylebone belongs). We were totally smitten by the décor of the Cocktail Bar, which is inspired by the four seasons of the year. The space fills with natural light during the summer months and offers fireside warmth in winter. The hotel offers an impressive range of meeting rooms and versatile event spaces. A highlight for us was Number Six. This stunning, multi-purpose space has a private ground floor entrance, with its own cloakroom and reception area. The space is bathed in daylight, with mirrored surfaces reflecting the rich colours of the furniture and wooden floor around the room. There’s capacity for up to 180 standing guests, with moveable walls and even a lavish concealed bar which transform the space for a multitude of uses. Other impressive spaces include The Courtyard, an internal terrace featuring a retractable roof and striking fireplace for year-round events, such as private dinners under the light of the stars. The Blue Room, as the name suggests, is vibrantly decorated, and offers configurations to suit events from 8 to 80 guests. Every space we viewed had been furnished and finished with loving attention to detail.

Our stay included breakfast, which gave us the opportunity to sample one of the best full Irish breakfasts I’ve enjoyed. The food was of excellent quality, and service was warm, friendly, and attentive, giving us confidence that event guests would be well looked after too. The delicious calories offered at the table were well spent at the onsite Third Space luxury health-club and gym. Featuring cutting edge equipment, great spa facilities and an energetic vibe, I can honestly say they were the most impressive hotel fitness facilities I’ve used.

With their collection of top tier event spaces, luxuriously comfortable bedrooms, plus the five-star hospitality we enjoyed, we’re delighted to recommend The Marylebone to our clients. To plan your corporate events at this excellent hotel, contact the team at Flavour Venues & Events.
