London City Airport hotel

Less than a six-minute walk from the London City Airport terminal (and even closer to the Executive Jet Centre) a new Marriot Courtyard Hotel has opened.

As now the closest hotel to London City Airport, the 184-room property sees itself not only offering quality accommodation, a business meeting place, but also an offsite lounge facility.

Speaking of how the hotel will improve the travel experience for airport users, Chris Thomas, General Manager of Courtyard London City Airport, explained: “Historically business travellers using London City Airport have had to choose between high walk-in rates at its two offsite (jet centre) lounges, or a limited range of food options within the terminal itself. With the airport’s redevelopment programme currently paused until at least 2023, we are delighted to be able to offer an alternative departure lounge option for smart travellers keen to take advantage of the airport’s swift check-in process.”

With its three interactive meeting rooms all with floor-to-ceiling windows, fully-equipped business centre, all-day Kitchen & Bar dining concept, on-property Starbucks coffee and a Grab and Go market, the Courtyard London City Airport hotel has introduced a new range of casual and business-focused spaces just five minutes’ walk from the airport check-in area.  

There are no parking facilities and with the short distance involved transport is also not provided.  Savvy passenger can also use the largely ignored Drew Road western entrance to the DLR station in getting to and from London.  The Elizabeth Line surfaces just by the hotel.
