History: The Landmark hotel was originally called the Great Central Hotel (sometimes referred to as the Hotel Grand Central) when it first opened in 1899. Designed by Robert William Edis and owned by Sir John Blundell Maple who had a furniture company of the same name. The hotel was constructed in its location opposite Marylebone Station to service this mainline railway which at that time was hoped to become part of a channel tunnel link. It would be along time till the channel tunnel ever became reality and even now the line links through Kings Cross instead of Marylebone. During the mid 19th century the building ceased to be a hotel. During the second world war it was used as a convalescent home and later on as the headquarters of the British Railways Board. Finally in 1993 after being bought by a Japanese corporation it reopened as a luxury hotel and was called 'The Regent Hotel. Two years later it was again purchased by a new company this time called the Landmark Hotel Company Limited, and the name changed once again to reflect its new ownership.
