Accor London expansion

London is to gain four more Accor hotels in October; a Novotel and ibis in Blackfriars, a second ibis in Shepherd’s Bush and a new addition to the growing Mercure portfolio, opening in Greenwich.

Encompassing the latest in consumer technology, visitors to the 4-star Novotel London Blackfriars will be greeted by self-service touch screen check-in systems, in addition to the standard check-in desks.  All 182 bedrooms in the hotel include a media hub for iPads, iPods and tablets.  The new-build hotel also features restaurant, bar, seven meetings rooms, a state-of-the-art gym, sauna and swimming pool.
The 297-bedroom flagship ibis London Blackfriars hotel also comprises a modern and fresh feel with a new-style open plan reception and living space that opens up the hotel’s public spaces with contemporary design and sleek, modern interiors.
The contemporary ibis hotel in Shepherd’s Bush features 128 rooms and is situated next to the up-and-coming West12 centre and within five minutes of the Westfield Shopping Centre. 

The 145-bed Mercure Greenwich will open its doors in October, following a major conversion of the 1930s Maurice Drummond House in Greenwich. www.accorhotels.com
