This 5 star luxury hotel was originally opened on 1st July 1899. The hotel was designed around a large courtyard and this allowed light and air into all of its bedrooms. The courtyard was unique in London and it allowed guests to arrive at the hotel directly via horse and carriage. The hotel has a lot of history and has hosted all kinds of events welcoming members of the Royal Family.
The hotel, on Marylebone Road, was opened by the Great Central Railway as the Hotel Great Central. It was one of London’s railway hotels, but after the invention of the motor car, the service declined and it served as a military convalescent home during the Second World War and subsequently the headquarters of the British Railways Board.
As the demand for luxury hotels in London grew in the late 20th and early 21st centuries, the building was bought by a Japanese company in 1986 and was restored and reopened as The Regent, London in 1993.
The Lancaster Landmark Hotel Company Limited purchased it in 1995 and was then renamed The Landmark London, as it is known today. This magnificent, luxurious hotel now boasts 300 rooms and suites and can host all kinds of events from grand weddings to intimate meetings and dinners.
