LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwired - Aug 27, 2014) - When the iTunes Festival raises the curtain on its 30-day extravaganza of concerts this September, the experience will be entirely new for most people. After all, even those who've attended previous concerts will find an exciting lineup of performers that includes Maroon 5, Beck, Sam Smith, Pharrell Williams and many others. But there is one place where even a groundbreaking festival like this one is not entirely new, and that is the London Marriott Hotel Maida Vale. Enjoying a long relationship with the music industry, this property stands out among other modern hotels in London for both its fresh hospitality and its musical influences, all of which make it an ideal destination for anyone holding tickets to this year's iTunes Festival.
Between September 1 and 30, the iTunes Festival will bring an eclectic range of performances to the historic Roundhouse theatre each night. From David Guetta to Ryan Adams, Blondie and Chrissie Hynde to Lenny Kravitz, there's a show to captivate every audience.
And for those audience members travelling from outside of London, the London Marriott Hotel Maida Vale enhances the concert experience in unexpected ways. Located just a 12-minute taxi ride (or a 20-minute Underground ride) away from the Roundhouse, the property is undeniably convenient. Yet it's also situated among hotels near Abbey Road Studios where The Beatles famously recorded. Plus it boasts close proximity to the BBC Maida Vale Studios (home to Radio 1), as well as Wembley Stadium and Wembley Arena, where London's top concerts often find their voice.
As a result of its prime position among hotels in North London, it's no surprise that the property has welcomed its fair share of famous guests over the years. Today, its Wall of Fame honours these renowned visitors who've dropped in to enjoy the hotel's contemporary style, buzzing Bar hemia and gracious accommodations. Artists like Oasis and Depeche Mode have found space on the wall alongside many others, and their pictures and autographs underscore the musical surroundings that inform the hotel.
By steeping itself within the music community, this property stands out from other hotels in Maida Vale. And the luxury bedding, modern Italian fare at Restaurant Fratelli, secure parking and even live music at Bar hemia add up to a stay that will almost certainly demand an encore performance before the next iTunes Festival rolls around.
