This majestic Marriott hotel occupies one of the capital’s most flamboyant buildings – a neo-Gothic gem crafted by celebrated architect Sir George Gilbert Scott. Its fairytale façade, glazed entrance hall and dramatic cantilevered staircase – which has featured in Downton Abbey and Harry Potter – revel in their restored Victorian splendour. Sleek modern design permeates the 245 rooms but for antique chic, book one of the 38 updated Chambers Suites.

Business facilities Photocopy and fax services. Ten events and meeting rooms, including the opulent Ladies’ Smoking Room.

Wi-fi Free in suites and most public areas but in-room charges apply – from £7.50 ($15) per day.

Food and wine The Gilbert Scott, an upmarket brasserie by chef Marcus Wareing, complements the bygone-era Booking Office restaurant and The Platform Café. 

Fitness and wellbeing A 24-hour gym, heated pool and day spa.

Run route Turn left down Pancras Road and right onto Goods Way to Regent’s Canal. Take the towpath west, until Lisson Grove moorings, for a 10km round trip.
