The Guoman Cumberland Hotel London at Marble Arch is substantial in size and ultra-modern in design. Built in the 1930s, this is one of London’s biggest hotels. It has more than 1,000 bedrooms, six restaurants and bars, one of which is the flagship Rhodes restaurant, and 26 meeting and conference rooms.The hotel enjoys a fantastic location overlooking Marble Arch and Hyde Park. The hotel stands at the point where Park Lane and Oxford Street – two of London’s most famous streets – meet.
The expansive lobby is not dissimilar in its simplicity to an airport check-in area. Different lighting tones are used to great effect and highlight the interesting pieces of art that include a strange chair, a statue of a man on his side and a flowing water feature. Admittedly, it’s not to everyone’s taste, but it's certainly striking.
Back in 1933, when it welcomed its first guests, it was the first hotel to have telephones in each room and private en suite bathrooms. King George V and Queen Mary gave the venue their royal seal of approval by attending its grand opening ceremony. Steeped in history, this luxury London hotel still prides itself on its high levels of service and the comfort it offers as it seeks to live up to its tagline to 'inspire, entral and amaze'.
