One of London’s lesser known 4-star hotels, The Crowne Plaza Blackfriars is to reopen on 1 March. It has been closed since the start of the pandemic.
In a very good but not obvious location, IHG has taken the decision to re-brand the property as a Hyatt Regency following a major makeover. The hotel has 204 rooms and previously limited conference facilities.
The hotel is opposite Blackfriars Station with direct train services to Gatwick and also the Circle/Metropolitan Line with its various connections. St Paul’s Cathedral is about 5mins walk and directory across the River Thames is the Tate Modern Art Gallery.
Bookings have not opened as yet and the new property will join The Churchill and New Scotland Yard as the premier Hyatt Regency London properties.

The Crowne Plaza always seemed lost to me. It might just work as a Hyatt Regency
