Shepherd's Bush Ibis

Ibis London Shepherd's Bush will open this month close by the Westfield shopping complex and Shepherd's Bush Underground station.
The hotel has 128 rooms, all featuring the new ergonomically-engineered concept bed “Sweet Bed by ibis”, designed, so they say, to deliver the ultimate good night's sleep. 

An open plan ground floor incorporates the reception, bar and restaurant, creating an inviting 'living space' in which guests can relax, socialise and work.  Encompassing the latest in consumer technology, state-of-the-art virtual concierge systems in the public spaces allow guests to view hotel and local amenities via touch-screen.  Each bedroom hosts USB media docking stations compatible with iPod and tablet devices. Guests can connect their mobiles and laptops direct to the TV to work and play. There is free wi-fi and Freeview TV completes the in-room experience.
The hotel is next to the up-and-coming West12 centre and within five minutes of Westfield, which opened in 2008.  It heralded a wave of regeneration in the area, with developments underway at Shepherd's Bush Market, Wood Lane Studios and Shepherd's Green.  The new improved Green will sport two new state of the art playgrounds, one catering for young children and one for older children and teenagers. www.accorhotels.com
