The final phase of the project is now under way, with all 210 of the hotel's bedrooms expected to be fully redesigned by next month.

The new rooms will boast the brand’s bespoke Crowne Plaza Sleep Advantage amenities including comfortable beds with luxury duvets and extra pillows, blackout curtains and double glazing.

New high-tech additions include desk-based multimedia hubs with high-speed internet data ports, HDMI points and Bluetooth connectivity, bedside USB charging points and three-in-one charging cables.

Joanne Taylor-Stagg, general manager of Crowne Plaza London – Docklands, said: "The transformation of our rooms has been a fantastic addition to the offering at Crown Plaza Docklands. Over the last few months the room interiors have been completely redesigned and renovated to offer guests the ultimate stay with all of those at-home luxuries we’re accustomed to."

Ross Morrow, chief development officer at Redefine|BDL Hotels, said: "The investment project at the hotel has been a huge success and will elevate its offering in line with our exceptionally high standards across the portfolio. This project is one of several ongoing developments currently underway. It’s an incredibly exciting time for Redefine|BDL Hotels and we look forward to completing more landmark projects like this throughout 2015 and beyond."

The hotel offers eight meeting rooms, the largest accommodating 275 delegates.
