The Aloft London Tobacco Dock will include 251 rooms, a bar and restaurant and four meeting spaces, while the Element London Tobacco Dock will offer 77 studios and suites.

It will represent the first Element-branded property to open in London, with the Aloft London Tobacco Dock becoming the second Aloft-branded hotel to operate in the capital.

Starwood also announced plans for a dual-branded hotel development in Boston featuring Aloft and Element brands.

Set to open in 2016, the 330-room Aloft Boston Waterfront and 180-room Element Boston Waterfront will be situated on D Street, directly across the street from the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center.

C&IT held its first Event 360 forum at Tobacco Dock yesterday (5th June), attended by 250 event planners and suppliers.

Last month, Starwood Hotels reopened the Sheraton Dubai Creek Hotel & Towers following a multi-million pound rennovation project.
