THE Marriott Marble Arch's five flexible [...].
THE Marriott Marble Arch's five flexible meeting rooms (with a capacity of 180) have also been upgraded, and are named after local do-gooders. | WESTMACOTT SUITE: Sir Richard Westmacott (1775-1856) was an architect who designed the north side of the Marble Arch. The proximity of his work to the hotel is honoured in the main event space.
| SEACOLE: Mary Seacole (1805-1881) was a nurse who worked courageously during the Crimean War. She lived at 147 George Street, where an English Heritage plaque commemorates her work.
| NIGHTINGALE: Florence Nightingale (1820-1910) was also a famous nurse during the Crimean War which is why this room is identical to the Mary Seacole, standing side by side.
| THOMAS MORE One and Two: Based in the locality, Sir Thomas More (1478-1535) was an English lawyer, scholar, writer, MP and chancellor under Henry VIII. He was executed by the monarch for refusing to recognise his divorce.
