The Marriott County Hall Hotel is a Grade-II listed hotel in Westminster, London. It has 186 rooms, some of which offer views of Big Ben. It is housed in the same building as a "budget" Premier Inn hotel.
The premises continued to expand, and became under control by the Greater London Council (GLC) in 1965. By the 1980s, the Labour controlled GLC was in conflict with the British Conservative Government. Since the Parliament buildings were just across the river from County Hall, the latter sported a large banner recording the total number of unemployed in London. Subsequently, the GLC was abolished by the Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher in 1986.
Following the end of the GLC, the county hall sat vacant. It was purchased by the Shirayama Shokusan Corporation in 1993 and converted into a hotel.
