Escape of the week – The Montcalm London City


When I think it is time for an escape, when I want to kick back and relax have nothing to do but be pampered and do things at my own pace, when I get to the point that deadlines and control have gone too far I head to London. London is a perfect city for anyone who is looking for a break and some time out, my escape of the week has to be the Montcalm.

The local area
The Montcalm Hotel At The Brewery London City is located in Marylebone, a beautiful area of the city that allows for you to take a step back and relax, this hotel is as close to Hyde Park as you can get. Hyde Park is probably the most famous out of all the royal parks that are located around the city, it is tranquil and simply stunning, it is an area of the city that is out of this world, taking a stroll through the park at any time of the year is magical, I tend to find it one of the most relaxing experiences possible. Imagine being in one of the world’s busiest cities, yet you can find silence in a public park that is open and attracts millions year after year. Mayfair, Oxford and Regent Streets, Marylebone, Edgware Road are some of the other famous hot spots of London that are all within distance of the hotel.

The Montcalm is a 5 star establishment that has been awarded the hotel of year 2014 by Trip Advisor, if you want luxury at it’s best then this will be the perfect choice for you, with 139 bedrooms and 14 lavish suites to choose from, this really is the establishment that you dream of stay at. The tasteful décor that is a contemporary design has been carefully created to give off the perfect ambience, for a truly memorable stay consider this particular establishment out of the chain.

Each of the rooms, or from what I have seen, are tastefully designed with an prominence on comfort and style, chic and contemporary. The bedrooms come complete with state of the art amenities including complimentary broadband and Wi-Fi, LCD TV with international and satellite channels, an iPad, pillow menu and in room aroma for a memorable stay and a calming atmosphere. For a good night’s sleep in a sumptuous bed, with the finest linens, music can be heard at the touch of a button, relax with a drink from the stocked mini bar, enjoy a complimentary tea or coffee, or relax in an inviting rain shower or bath with complimentary Elemis or Hermes toiletries. If there is anything else you could possibly desire then do not hesitate to contact the reception 24 hours a day.

The hotels facilities in my option are some of the very best I have experienced around the world. You are able to choose from the taste bud tantalizing Sixtyone Restaurant, or Traditional English tea at The Crescent Restaurant & Lounge, there is a Champagne Bar that offers a wide selection of alcoholic & non-alcoholic beverages and appetizers. If you want to relax then make your way towards the fitness centre,sauna, steam room, Jacuzzi, exercise pool, monsoon shower and heated loungers. The Spa at The Montcalm is a striking sanctuary of wellness and fitness, offering facial, body treatments and massages by therapist who have magic hands. If you are seeking a formal setting then you will not be disappointed with the two meeting and events rooms, The Grand Ballroom, which coincidently has been known to be one of the most luxury event spaces in London and is a popular choice for weddings.

We all love choice and variety, you certainly get that from the two unique restaurants, Sixtyone and The Crescent Restaurant & Lounge offer a wonderful menu and it is available 24 hours a day via room service, it is just as delectable in your room than in the restaurant, the quality and service, I found were exceptional. If you are looking for something a little lighter the Traditional English afternoon tea is a wonderful option, and the children are able to attend a Teddy’s Tea Time, I found little reason to leave the hotel and I’m sure you will be the same.

When you find a gem stone like this in the middle of a city there isn’t much for you to tip on, the Montcalm london city suites is simply perfect in every way, it is a place for all the family to enjoy, I would recommend taking advantage of the packages that are available and also making an early reservation, there is little else to say when it comes to perfection in the city.
