Montcalm is a name that continues to be synonymous with elegance and style and The Montcalm London Marble Arch being the flagship of this growing London group of hotels raises the bar even higher. The property has been an hotel since 1973 and the unchanged graceful facade belies the modern but warm club like foyer where doormen spring to help you in and the reception staff are on hand to welcome you with a drink and an unfussy check in.

Having been escorted up to my spacious and incredibly quiet Junior Suite where bottled water and fruit are supplied – as they are in all rooms and shown all the thoughtful amenities and mini bar temptations I made myself comfortable on the inviting massive bed covered with piles of cushions. An interesting new innovation, unique to the Montcalm and which is provided in all rooms is the Handy phone which allows guests unlimited free local and some international calls plus unlimited free mobile internet.

The bathroom has everything you would expect from this 5 star hotel with a rain shower and deep bath and an amusing glass partition separating it from the bedroom which becomes see through at the touch of a button.

“The Montcalm London Marble Arch being the flagship of this growing London group of hotels raises the bar even higher.”

Club Rooms at all Montcalm hotels provide guests with access to the Club Lounge which is a super bonus. This one is a long quiet cosy room with a business area, seating booths, TVs and newspapers. There is also a free bar and delicious canapés are served in the evenings.

For those who need a more hands on form of relaxation, they can find it in the basement hotel spa which offers a small pool, Jacuzzi, a sauna, steam room, various therapies and relaxation areas in a warm and aromatic ambiance. There is also a gym area with up to date equipment to look at on your way to the hot tub!

The hotel has two restaurants: The Nirvana offering Pan-Asian cuisine and the Crescent which is where afternoon tea can be enjoyed and hearty or healthy breakfasts are served as well as full service during the day.

The location of this hotel is excellent. Whether you are heading for the bargains of Oxford Street or planning on a long walk in Hyde Park or just a stroll down Park lane all these treats are a just a short distance away.

I have had the pleasure of staying in other Montcalm hotels and it is reassuring that this London group of hotels is not leaving its values and standards behind. The style and technology of these hotels is superb but the consistent excellence is that of the staff.
