This luxury London hotel is steeped in history and prides itself on its high levels of service and the comfort it offers as it seeks to ‘inspire, enthral and amaze’. The Cumberland Hotel London is part of the Guoman group of London hotels which also features The Charing Cross and The Tower and is set near to London’s Oxford Street shopping area, while Marble Arch is also nearby. The building itself came into existence towards the end of the 1920s and it began to usher in its guests from 1933 as the first hotel to have telephones in each room and private en suite bathrooms. King George V and Queen Mary were even in attendance for the venue’s grand opening ceremony.
Today, the hotel brings together an impressive style mixed with contemporary aspects, with sculptures and paintings dotted around the building, while the bedrooms and dining rooms are also modern in their design and furnishing. And all this right at the heart of London near to its array of other centrally placed hotels, as well as its numerous exciting attractions, places to visit and sights to see.
