Occupying an enviable position north of Marble Arch, The Arch London lies close to that excellent independent shopping and first class dining thoroughfare, Marylebone High Street. But if it’s central and urban it’s certainly not predictable – better described as one of the new breed of townhouse hotels rather than that 1990s phenomenon, the boutique hotel. It’s luxurious alright, but it’s not grand. Public spaces are art-filled, smart and glossy, but intimate too. The 82 striking bedrooms have been superbly executed and, for their quality and location, offer great value for money. The heart of the place, and its cleverest feature, is the subtly curtained champagne lounge that flows into a zinc-topped bar area and on into the Hunter 486, with open-to-view kitchen and wood-fired oven. You could almost be in New York. Dine or breakfast anywhere in these three areas and enjoy the ambience – buzzy but relaxed.
