Travelodge London Marylebone
Advantages: Brilliant location, well equipped
Disadvantages: Noisy cold room-hopefully just ours!
We stayed at the Marylebone Travelodge last week for 2 nights. We were really just using the hotel as somewhere to keep our luggage and have a quick sleep so didn't plan on spending a lot of time there. If we had been staying longer or spending more time in the hotel, I would have complained at the service we received at the time.
The first problem was obvious as soon as we walked into the "Double" room-we had two single beds pushed together. Not necessarily a problem but the beds had a height difference of more than 6 inches! Also the room was cold and noisy due to the ill-fitting single-glazed windows. The room was equipped as per all Travelodge rooms-with tea and coffee making facilities, bath, shower, desk and chair, and somewhere to hang clothes.
The hotel itself is quite small, with all the rooms on one side (a reason we didn't ask to switch rooms as we assumed they were all the same!). There is a reception desk and small lobby with two computers for internet access. There is the usual Travelodge bar and restaurant in the basement but we did not use these. Also a well-stocked vending machine was available after the bar closed.
Our room and the communal areas were all clean and the housekeepers came round each morning and even paid attention to our do not disturb sign. The staff on reception were very helpful and check in was very quick indeed.
The hotel is in an excellent location, directly opposite Marylebone train and tube station. This was ideal for us as it's 3 stops from oxford circus and therefore gave us easy access to all of the tourist sites we wanted to visit. He station is well equipped with cafes and a Marks and Spencer Simply Food so had everything we needed for Room Snacks during our stay. Regents Park is only a 10 minute walk and Sherlock Holmes' house is around 5 minutes away.
The price of the room was very reasonable; we paid £89 for two nights as we booked more than 21 days in advance. The price can rise to around £60-£80 if you book last minute but it is still cheaper than the Travelodges nearer to the Covent garden/Leicester square areas of the city. We paid extra for a late checkout at 2pm on our last day and an early check in is also available on request. I ordered this online at the time of booking.
In summary, the hotel was fine for a couple of nights when we didn't intend to spend much time there but if I was planning to stay longer or spend more time in the room, I would pay more to stay elsewhere
Summary: Worth another try if I wasn't bothered about the room quality
