American hospitality company Hyatt has announced plans for two new hotels in London, Hyatt Regency London Stratford and Hyatt House London Stratford. The coming has signed management agreements with Stratford City Hotels Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of M&L Hospitality, for both the hotels.
Hyatt will rebrand two existing IHG properties. The 225-room Holiday Inn Stratford City will be rebranded as Hyatt Regency London Stratford and the 127-room Staybridge Suites Stratford City will be rebranded as Hyatt House London Stratford. Both hotels, which are expected to open in the second quarter of 2022 following an extensive refurbishment, will be conveniently located within one of Europe’s largest urban shopping and entertainment complexes, Westfield Stratford City, and a short walk to Stratford Station and Queen Elizabeth Park.
Felicity Black Roberts, Vice President of Development – Europe, Hyatt, said:
The addition of these two hotels will be another exciting step in growing Hyatt’s brand presence in the United Kingdom and in creating a network of hotels across the key commercial and leisure markets in the country. We worked closely with M&L Hospitality to choose the right brands for the location and are pleased to be continuing our relationship with them following the successful openings of Hyatt Regency Manchester and Hyatt House Manchester in 2019.
Designed with productivity in mind, Hyatt Regency London Stratford will features 225 guest rooms and suites. Guests can enjoy 6,673 square feet (628 square meters) of meeting space, along with a spacious restaurant, bar and an open-air terrace. Hyatt House London Stratford will provide guests with modern, apartment-style suites with fully equipped kitchens and flexible workspaces, designed to make them feel at home, especially during extended stays.
The hotels are located close to Stratford Station, one of the UK’s busiest train stations, giving guests swift access to Central London in only seven minutes. Stratford International Station connects guests to St Pancras International Station and transfers to the Eurostar train, which provides services to Paris, Brussels, Rotterdam and Amsterdam.
The properties will also be easily accessible to Heathrow International Airport via the new Queen Elizabeth Crossrail line due to open mid in 2022, which will offer services to Stratford in approximately 45 minutes. Furthermore, London City Airport is only 20 minutes from Stratford on the Docklands Light Railway.
