One of the leading budget hotel groups has celebrated 30 years of trading in the UK capital by opening its new flagship Travelodge Plus hotel in the City of London, near Liverpool Street station.
The £95m London City Travelodge is the company’s largest new-build hotel to date, with 395 rooms. It is also the company’s 75th hotel in London and boosts the UK portfolio to 550 properties.
Travelodge Plus is a new budget chic hotel format newly launched by the group (BTN 9 July). Officials describe it as "designed around the needs of the modern budget traveller who wants a little extra style and choice".
Features of the brand include a choice of room designs as well as a new-style Bar Café with facilities to make it easier for guests to work as well as relax outside their rooms.
Travelodge managing director for property Paul Harvey said: “This opening, our 75th London hotel, celebrates how far the brand has grown. London remains a key growth area for us as there is a desperate need for more quality low-cost properties.”
The company is building a further four hotels in London at Beckton, Elephant & Castle, Manor House and Peckham. It is also seeking a further 100 sites across the city over the next ten years.
