Nobu Hotel London Portman Square
What it is
A serene 249-room hideaway inspired by Japan, with a wellness emphasis (including a pilates studio and juice bar) and Nobu outpost by Chef Nobu Matsuhisa.
What it isn't
Forgetting your four-legged friends. Pets are welcome here, without height or weight restrictions (Great Danes, c’mon in!).
What we think
Among all the neighborhoods of posh London, Marylebone ranks high on both the serene and style factors. So it’s no wonder Nobu chose this area for a London locale…yet another jewel in the brand’s crown. Guest rooms here are known for their Japanese-inspired aesthetics (blonde woods, clean lines, earthy art) and luxe amenities, including 400-thread-count linens, toiletries from Grown Alchemist, and Japanese tea sets. Upgrade to a Zen Suite for a separate living room and ultra luxe touches, such as a Toto toilet and Yukata robes—originally designed for donning at onsen (hot springs). The Nobu Penthouse is worthy of the brand’s co-owner—none other than Robert De Niro—thanks to a 1,230-square-foot floor plan and art-stocked interiors that make it feel like a true oasis.
You're here because
You’ve seen all of De Niro’s movies and now you’re set on staying at all of his hotels—a lofty yet delightful goal. Plus, the hotel has a Japanese afternoon tea that’s so beautiful, you want to pinch yourself.
Every meal you’ve ever had at Nobu has been a transcendent experience…one reason why locals are willing to wait weeks for a rezzie. Your order tonight —including wagyu dumplings with spicy ponzu, yuzu truffle scallops and Anticucho Peruvian rib eyes—is so divine you’re going to cancel tomorrow’s dinner with the Middletons to come back here.
