Review: Hyatt Regency London, The Churchill
The property took advantage of the spring lockdown to spruce up the lobby in the style of a private members’ club
“Never, never, never give up,” reads the motivational quote etched onto the walls of the Hyatt Regency London’s fitness centre. When Winston Churchill uttered those famous words, he certainly wasn’t thinking of runners racking up a few extra miles on the treadmill, but it’s just one of the many tributes to the former PM – from a gruff-looking bust in the lobby to a Churchill-inspired cocktail menu in the beautifully decorated bar – dotted all over this newly refurbished hotel.
The property took advantage of the spring lockdown to spruce up the lobby in the style of a private members’ club, add two family room categories and overhaul the top suite to become The Churchill Residential Suite, featuring artworks, a grand piano and two terraces.
A new Discover Marylebone package invites guests to explore the area in depth, with options including a champagne picnic in Portman Square, a cooking class with head chef Roger Olsson or a private tour of Thompson’s Gallery with a chance to pick up a work or two by some of the UK’s most innovative artists.
Book it: From £218 room-only; The Churchill Residential Suite starts at £3,000
