The Arch London

June 2, 2018 Hotel Feature No Comments Email Email

The Arch London is a luxurious Georgian townhouse hideaway in the heart of central London. The officially rated five star property is a regular resident amongst the top 20 Luxury hotels in the UK on TripAdvisor and has earned the 2017 Forbes Travel Guide Recommended Award. The hotel is tucked away on a calm residential street in Marylebone, a stone’s throw from Bond Street, Hyde Park and the West End, and spans seven Grade II listed Georgian townhouses and two mews homes.

Upon entering reception a roaring open-fireplace provides a warming welcome to travellers. The interior throughout is quietly glamorous, boasting marble and glass, and a specially curated collection of art, including a moving art installation illuminating the reception desk. English heritage is fused with contemporary boutique design, with walls adorned in eye-catching artwork by British talents. The corridors have also been permeated with character, and black and white ‘Alphatecture’ series of prints span the length of the gallery-inspired hall leading towards the Martini Library.

A member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World™ and Pride of Britain, the hotel boasts 82 bedrooms including eleven sumptuous suites spread over six floors. Floors are considerately numbered 1, 2, 3, and 5 as the number 4 is considered unlucky in Asian cultures. Spacious interconnecting rooms are on offer for families or larger groups.

The hotel is dog friendly with an ethos to treat pooches to the same indulgent experience as their owners, with luxurious dog beds, bowls, and delicious doggy menu cooked to order by a chef.  Dog walking services are also available, allowing owners to relax whilst their furry friends are exploring the 350 acres of nearby Hyde Park.

The hotel offers a selection of complimentary treats for guests to enjoy.  These include soft drinks, water and juice from the mini bar, Jing teas, a Nespresso coffee machine, MALIN + GOETZ toiletries, WIFI and daily changing exotic flavoured drinks in the lobby.

Guestrooms are all light, airy and spacious with Georgian ceilings. Individually decorated with the hotel’s signature hand-painted bespoke wallpaper, guestrooms feature unashamedly luxurious furnishings and are immaculately finished with the highest attention to every detail in every aspect. The beds are a majestic fixture in every room, as each one is adorned with duck down duvets and pillows.

The luxurious amenities in all the guestrooms are personally designed to anticipate guests every need and comfort. A handpicked selection of classic novels can be found in the suites, while all rooms have a full Sky HD TV package, DVD Player and internet radio with over 19,000 channels for international guests. The bathrooms feature modern flourishes such as heated anti-steam mirrors and flat screen TVs built into the wall above baths.

The hotel’s eleven stunning suites offer the ultimate contemporary boutique experience. Special features include private outdoor terraces, four poster beds, or stylish kitchenettes to accommodate longer stays. Large artworks have been thoughtfully handpicked to complement each space, providing dramatic focal points throughout.

The digital ‘Maid Service’ and ‘Do Not Disturb’ signs perfectly showcase the hotel’s blend of eco-friendly awareness and love of the latest mod cons.

There are a number of guest areas within The Arch London, each with something unique to offer.


Hunter 486 restaurant is named after the 1950s dialing code for Marylebone and offers a ‘Best of British’ inspired menu carefully developed by Head Chef Gary Durrant. Hunter 486 has an extensive wine and Champagne list with 27 available by the glass, and has been awarded the one-star award in The World of Fine Wine World’s Best Wine Lists 2017. Designed with an air of nostalgic London glamour fused with contemporary touches, the restaurant features gleaming leather booths and blown glass chandeliers. The kitchen is delightfully open plan and airy, allowing guests to watch the skilled chefs at work amongst the gleaming selection of copper pots and pans suspended from the ceiling.  Light streams through the large windows, treating guests to a charming view of the neighborhood mews, and come the evening, the softly lit restaurant is an intimate setting for dinner. The bar area within the restaurant features original designer chairs by Tom Dixon, unique glass chandeliers and a vibrant atmosphere. Guests will enjoy the chic surroundings as much as the fine choice of fizz, signature cocktail and flawless personal service.

Le Salon de Champagne oozes timeless London glamour and is laid back luxury at its best.  A stylish area with a unique arty ambience adjacent to the restaurant with intimate secluded leather booths veiled with floor-to-ceiling silk voile drapes.  

The Martini Library is a warm, opulent lounge area for guests to enjoy Martinis or Afternoon Tea.  The ‘press to refresh’ service buttons, sumptuous armchairs, shelves filled with handpicked Taschen & Daunt books and stone fireplaces make this a truly decadent space. Alternatively it is also the perfect spot to host an exclusive dinner party or private meeting room with an inclusive breakout area. 

The Study is a fresh and contemporary place to meet and an ideal informal business meeting space. The room is filled with individually selected furniture, and offers hotel guests complimentary computer and printing facilities, should they wish to print information for a flight or London show.  In addition, the concierge is always on hand to assist with these services and more.

Whitehall can be dressed and lit in a variety of ways to suit a boardroom style meeting, a theatre style meeting, a decadent private dinner or a cocktail reception.  With elegant armchairs and sofas lining the walls, state-of-the-art teleconference technology and stylish concealed lighting illuminating the space, Whitehall offers a chic business space with more luxurious comfort and a slightly less corporate vibe.

The hotel offers a gymnasium on the lower-ground floor for guests to use, with fitness equipment including a PowerPlate machine and multi-functional Kinesis station.

Prices start from £350 for a Deluxe Room and from £420 for a Suite.
