The London Marriott Hotel Canary Wharf (previously Marriott Hotel West India Quay) is a hotel in Canary Wharf in London, England, that opened in 2004. It is located at 1 West India Quay, 22 Hertsmere Road, and is named after Canary Wharf, where it overlooks the West India Quay Marina. It is operated by Marriott Hotels, and has 301 rooms and 47 apartments.

It is owned by the billionaire property developer John Christodoulou.

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 Group, Inc., its elliptical form is reminiscent of the curved hull of a boat. The building was completed in 2004.

The bottom 12 floors of the 33-floor story building house the hotel, with 301 rooms on floors 1-8, and 47 serviced suites on floors 9-12. Facilities include the Manhattan Grill Restaurant, 19 event rooms, an executive lounge, a health club, and the G & Tea Lounge with over 180 different gins.

The hotel hosts an artist in residence programme, showing the work of contemporary artists including Lincoln Townley in 2015 and Julie Umerle in 2017.
