Formerly the Custom House Hotel, the ibis Styles London ExCel is a luxurious hotel located on Victoria Dock Road, London. The hotel has recently undergone a refurbishment, and now boasts 302 bedrooms, four dining areas and four meeting rooms.
The refurbishment was conducted by Warwickshire Construction and was completed ahead of the hotel’s official opening in January 2013. The hotel – operated by Accor UK – is situated near to the Canary Wharf business district, the O2 entertainment centre, Westfield Stratford City shopping centre and many more attractions, and is ideal for families.
Features of the newly refurbished ibis Styles London ExCel include four meeting rooms with the capacity for between 2 and 200 people and four restaurants, Camelia Restaurant; Café and Lounge; Pub & Kitchen; and Steak & Grill Restaurant.
Camelia Restaurant is a colourful breakfast room which is open daily, whilst Café and Lounge is perfect for tea, coffee and light snacks. Pub & Kitchen serves up traditional and tasty meals, opening from 10:30am until late, whilst Steak & Grill Restaurant dishes out fresh steaks, grills and daily specials from 6pm.
Rooms at ibis Styles London ExCel include a work desk, flatscreen TV, tea & coffee making facilities and a shower room. Guests also benefit from free internet access throughout the building.
Commenting on the new hotel, Accor UK and Ireland Managing Director, Thomas Dubaere, said:
“As the world’s leading hotel operator, we are always looking for opportunities to expand with franchise partners. This hotel is in a great location in the upcoming East End of London which has benefited enormously from the Olympics.”
“An ibis Styles offers creativity and personality for the hotel and its guests and as we continue to increase the Accor UK network to 300 hotels by 2015, ibis Styles and the economy brands will play a major part in our development.”
Unique to the economy segment, the ibis Styles hotels – formally All Seasons – are individually designed, contemporary hotels. They offer a new economy hotel experience and provide a high quality, budget boutique atmosphere for all visitors.
ibis Styles London Excel is the fourth ibis Styles hotel in the UK, all of which are located in Greater London. Following the refurbishment of ibis Styles London Excel, the ibis Styles network will continue to grow across the UK in 2013.
