East London's 'Tech City' welcomed its first luxury hotel last month with the opening of The Montcalm Hotels' latest offering.

The 269-room property takes residence in a futuristic, 18-storey building designed by RIBA award-winning architects and which encompasses groundbreaking architectural techniques.

A 'tech' theme continues throughout, although the hotel claims to offer 'no gimmicks' – just intelligent devices to enhance guests' stays, including iPads to easily control the lights, sound, temperature and order room service. Guests can even 'create their own environment', including the room aroma.

For events, M by Montcalm's conference and meeting facilities offer intelligent design, flexible spaces, supreme comfort and state-of-the-art facilities, including plasma screens, audio equipment and complimentary high-speed broadband. There is capacity for events for up to 250 delegates.

There are two restaurants run by chefs from Michelin-starred kitchens, one on the 17th floor that provides views across London and 'refined' cuisine; the other, a ground floor/mezzanine socialising hub serving cocktails in a relaxed atmosphere.

Leisure facilities at the property include the M Spa, offering a Versace-tiled pool with steam room, sauna and Jacuzzi, a gym and a wide range of treatments.

Finally, the M Club offers Club room and VIP guests a stylish 16th floor exclusive club to hold meetings, work and relax in, with an food and drink menu from the 17th floor restaurant.
