Merchant Square Paddington

21 04 2016

I had a meeting at this newly developed neighborhood near the Paddington Station in London which I never knew existed before.  It’s a vast open space with modern high rise buildings with a cute little canal.

Life in London 2011, Day 3

29 01 2011

Checked out of apartment after one meeting in the morning.

and headed to the next one at the Landmark Hotel in Marylebone in a beautiful restaurant with a stunning atrium (http://www.wintergarden-london.com/) for a lunch meeting.

I had no idea the Marylebone station was so nice.  It is the neighborhood in which we had dinner the night before.

Moving on from the Landmark to the Baglioni Hotel (http://bit.ly/56yNBm) in Kensington.  Was planning to take the tube but running out of time, ended up in a cab and my new discovery of the day was that some London taxis have automated doors.

The lobby in the Baglioni Hotel.

Off to the airport on Heathrow Express after picking up my luggage from the apartment and another discovery: you need to get off at a station called “Heathrow Central” which didn’t exist the last time I was visiting, and change trains in order to get to Terminal 4.  So those passengers flying with Skyteam (http://www.skyteam.com/), it is not really 15 minutes from Paddington.

Finally some time to relax in the Skyteam lounge before flying out to Paris.

As with the previous evening, trying to stay awake during dinner was most challenging.  Quite tired by the time we came out.
