The London Marriott Hotel West India Quay is a hotel in London, England, that opened in 2004. It is located at 1 West India Quay, 22 Hertsmere Road, Canary Wharf overlooking the West India Quay Marina. It is operated by the Marriott Hotels group and has 301 rooms and 47 apartments.

It is owned by the billionaire property developer John Christodoulou.[1]

Architecture and facilities[edit]

In 2001, planning permission was gained by Squire and Partners for a slender landmark hotel tower conceived to act as a visual counterpoint to the monumental brick form of the adjacent Victorian warehouses in London's Docklands. Designed by HOK, its elliptical form is reminiscent of the curved hull of a boat.[2] The building was completed in 2004.

The bottom 12 floors of this 33-floor story building houses the hotel, offering 301 rooms on floors 1-8, and 47 serviced suites on floors 9-12. Facilities include the Manhattan Grill Steak Restaurant,[3] 19 event rooms, an executive lounge, a health club and a bar/lounge.

The hotel hosts an artist in residence programme, showing the work of contemporary artists. In 2017, abstract artist Julie Umerle was appointed artist in residence.[4]
