Only One of London's Modern Hotels Gives NFL Fans Easy Access to Sport and Sights Alike
LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM -- (Marketwired) -- For anyone who still thinks England only has room in its heart for the kind of football that involves shorts and a lot of heading the ball, it's time to reevaluate the U.K.'s sports scene. It turns out that even in this island nation where soccer is king, American-style football has acquired a notable following. Nothing better illustrates this than the upcoming NFL games to be held at Wembley Stadium between September and November of this year. Not only are throngs of loyal fans expected to descend upon North London, but the London Marriott Hotel Maida Vale will be uniquely ready to welcome them.
If American football weren't enough of a draw, the NFL's International Series will take place at the world-renowned Wembley Stadium. Considering the growing popularity of the sport and its highly desirable venue, it's no wonder ticket sales are poised to skyrocket. And that's especially true when the three scheduled games pit the following high-caliber teams against one another:
- Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Dallas Cowboys
- Atlanta Falcons vs. Detroit Lions
- Oakland Raiders vs. Miami Dolphins
No matter which team a fan favours, the choice of where to stay is easy. When exploring hotels in Camden, London, only the London Marriott Hotel Maida Vale puts guests closer to Wembley than any other Marriott and still affords easy access to the rest of London.
But the hotel's careful cultivation of amenities means that visitors can take advantage of the ideal location in especially convenient ways. Its secure car park, for example, lets guests avoid the notorious London traffic and rely instead on readily available public transportation to attend the game. Fans can hop aboard the London Overground, which runs every 20 minutes, to arrive at Wembley in under half an hour -- just enough time to let their face paint dry.
Located among Paddington Station London hotels, this property is ideally suited to exploring London's many famous attractions when game time is over. The London Zoo, Bond Street shopping and Abbey Road Studios, for example, are just a few of the nearby destinations waiting to be explored.
While there are other hotels also near the Kilburn Park tube station, few can match the London Marriott Hotel Maida Vale's contemporary style and comfort. The 226 guest rooms and 11 suites feature down comforters with custom duvets, safes and pull-out sofa beds -- perfect for groups or families -- while perks like complimentary access to the nearby Bannatyne's Leisure Club means guests can stay as fit as the athletes they watch on the field. Executive rooms offer enhanced amenities, and the two restaurants -- Restaurant Fratelli and Bar hemia -- are easily among the finest to be found in Maida Vale hotels.
Just as the NFL's arrival to London promises an exciting season of touchdowns, so too will the London Marriott Hotel Maida Vale offer its own version of a hospitality touchdown, the sort of service to set a new bar for excellence.
