Travelodge set to be the largest London Olympic operator

WATERLOO, on London’s South Bank, has a new Travelodge budget hotel, but don’t rush to make a booking.  The 279-room property is completely booked out for the next month.  The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, officially opened what is Travelodge's 400th hotel and also joined in the party to celebrate the chain's 25th anniversary of its history going back to Trust House Forte.  The seven-storey building, just past the Old VicTheatre, was once a bank and also government offices.  Costing £21m the regeneration is impressive with lounges and a breakfast bar at ground level and every room spacious, with a flat screen TV and working area.  It’s not The Ritz but with room rates starting at £19 and an excellent location it is clearly going to be a great success. www.Travelodge.co.uk
