SOUTHWARK HOTEL UNVEILS £3.8M REVAMP
Tuesday, 18 July 2017
Holiday Inn Express London – Southwark has unveiled its new look following a £3.8 million refurbishment project.
The hotel, which is managed by the UK’s leading independent hotel management company, Redefine|BDL Hotels, now boasts a total of 148 bedrooms thanks to a £3.5 million extension, which features 12 Holiday Inn Express ‘Next Generation’ rooms, which were developed in line with industry-leading experts to meet the changing needs of today’s ‘Smart Travellers’.
The brand new bedrooms feature large beds with padded, noise reducing headboards, as well as flexible work and rest corners which see traditional desks replaced with comfortable, ergonomically designed multi-use tables and chairs that can be easily moved around the room.
An additional £300,000 was spent upgrading 18 existing rooms in the hotel, also in line with the ‘Next Generation’ redesign.
All upgraded rooms feature new carpets, lighting, curtains, chairs and artwork – as well as brand new beds.
Tracey O’Garra, General Manager at Holiday Inn Express London – Southwark, said: “We’re delighted to open the hotel’s multi-million pound extension to our guests. The 12 brand new bedrooms offer guests the ultimate stay with all of the at-home luxuries they’re accustomed to.
“Unveiling the extension, along with the 18 refurbished existing rooms, is incredibly exciting for the hotel and we look forward to welcoming the first and future customers to experience the next generation in guest experience.”
