The Arch London is part of the following Travel Ideas:

10 of My Favourite Hotel Bars by Adrian Mourby

"The bar of London’s Arch Hotel is part of 486 Hunter, the hotel’s unique Food & Beverage area that includes, in one long moody sweep, a champagne lounge, cocktail bar, dining room and open kitchen. The champagne lounge has splashes of the hotel’s signature purple, two curtained booths and champagne aphorisms from famous imbibers written on its ceiling. The dining room has semi-circular leather banquettes grouped round circular tables like little round dining pods, and the kitchen is bright and busy. 486 also provides excellent food with a wide range of breakfast options that will please the most fastidious of vegetarians – or the heartiest of carnivores.

But the 486 Bar is a quiet area between these three with its brushed chrome counter and five chrome bar stools that look like chairs but -very deliberately- have only one arm. Some are left-handed and some right-handed to suit the elbow of the drinker. It is impossible to sit here, drink in one hand and elbow on the arm without looking like a practised lounge lizard. The 486 bar displays a good range of what it calls Scottish Whiskies, Irish Whiskeys and American Whiskeys (bourbon). It also offers a wide range of Bellinis, Seedlip Mocktails and all the classic cocktails.

Its name comes from the old dialling code for Marylebone, the London parish in which The Arch was constructed out of several townhouses after World War II. On the first British phones each number from 0-9 also owned three letters of the alphabet so 486 (the code for Marylebone) also spelled out H-U-N. Similarly the hotels suites are named after other local codes. SULlivan in the basement takes its name not from Sir Arthur Sullivan but from the old London code for Whitehall which was 785. It’s arcane but it certainly keeps the guests guessing!

When not offering excellent food and interesting cocktails the Arch provides an ideal London location for those who want to visit Hyde Park or shop down Oxford Street."

The Best British Festivals this October by Adrian Mourby

"London Piano Festival

The London Piano Festival which runs 5-18 October at King’s Place is only in its second year, but has put together an excellent sequence of solo recitals with concerts by the Argentinian virtuoso Nelson Goerner, the highly individual Lisa Smirnova and former winner of the Leeds International Piano Competition, Ilya Itin. Additionally the much-loved Melvyn Tan will premiere by a new work by Kevin Volans in his recital.

There is an underlying Russian theme this year with works by Rachmaninoff, Borodin, Shostakovich and Tchaikovsky in the programme. A brand-new commission for the “Two Piano Gala” is entitled RedMare and was composed especially for the festival by Russian composer Elena Langer.

The Hammersmith & Circle Line and the No 30 bus link Kings Place with The Arch Hotel in Great Cumberland Place. It’s only two and a half miles between the concert hall and the hotel, which means in London a minimum of 25 minutes by public transport or 50 minute walking (which takes you past Madame Tussaud’s and Regent’s Park).

The Arch is a family-owned modern hotel, skilfully constructed behind the facades of a number of neoclassical town houses in this typical West End street. It has a comfortable Martini Library and restaurant called Hunter 486 taking its name from the old dialling code for Marylebone. Here you can enjoy a “Best of British’ menu designed by Head Chef, Gary Durrant with his stylish take on classic fish and chips.

And when you’ve had enough of pianos and pianists, The Arch is also an ideal place to base yourself while shopping down Oxford Street."

10 Britain's Finest Filming Locations by Adrian Mourby

"Love Actually. Anyone who has seen Love Actually (and let’s face it, who hasn’t) will remember the excruciating scene in which Harry (Alan Rickman) tries to quickly buy a Christmas present for his predatory new secretary. The salesman, played by Rowan Atkinson, takes sadistic pleasure in spending a painfully long time wrapping it up. The scene was shot in Selfridges, Oxford Street’s best-known store, which is just around the corner from The Arch Hotel. The Arch really is an ideal place to base yourself while Christmas shopping – or indeed any kind of shopping spree.

Cleverly reconstructed behind the facades of a number of houses in Great Cumberland Place, the Arch is revealed as a modern redevelopment once you step through its eighteenth-century front door. Hunter 486 Restaurant and Bar is proud to present a ‘Best of British’ menu designed by Head Chef, Gary Durrant that includes his take on traditional fish and chips. The stylish bar area features original designer chairs by Tom Dixon and glass chandeliers. Do book one of the private booths that can be curtained off, and if you are in a movie-mood order the hotel’s signature Grace Kelly Martini. However arduous your day shopping, cares and tired feet will quickly be forgotten. What a shame Alan Rickman had to shoot back to the office instead of recovering at The Arch!"

Ten luxury Christmas shopping breaks by Jessica Baldwin

"This lavish city centre hotel spans seven Georgian townhouses and two mews homes close to iconic Marble Arch. Its clean and timeless interior, inspired by Marble Arch itself, is brought to life by thought-provoking modern art and ten standout colour schemes. Despite being a stone’s throw from Bond Street and Oxford Street this hotel is also refreshingly close to Hyde Park, the perfect calming pit stop between shops. Top tip – before joining the crowds on Oxford Street, check out nearby St Christopher’s Place, perfect for the discerning shopper it hosts everything from Mulberry and Reiss to Whistles and all in a charming backstreet. Each hotel room also has complimentary internet, so the shopping needn’t stop when the lights go out!"

10 of the Best Hotels for a Girly Weekend by Suzi Dixon

"No girly weekend is complete without a visit to the shops... so if shopping on Oxford Street is a once-a-year treat for you, book in with The Arch London so you’ve got somewhere to rest your aching feet at the end of the day. The hotel has a boutique feel, with 82 luxury rooms, classic Georgian features and furnishings. HUNter 486 restaurant has something for everyone - no pretentious finger food! Instead, choose from Shepherd’s pie, Lancashire hot pot, roast of the day or fish and chips."

Five of the Best Shop-Till-You-Drop Hotels by Suzi Dixon

"One of my favourite overnights of 2013 so far was at The Arch, London, right at the entrance of Oxford Street. It felt a little strange to dive straight into Primark after a night at this plush Georgian townhouse however... The hotel boasts individual suites with character and style and, by night, you can dine in the uber-trendy HUNter 486, which has a gloriously British menu. Think Shepherd’s Pie, Lancashire hot pot, roast of the day or Fish and Chips. Stone baked pizzas are also ideal after a hard day’s shopping, and prices start from just £8.50."
