VENUE FOCUS: First of two Accor properties opens at Excel
The Ibis London Excel opened its doors for the first time in January. The international two-star property is situated just three minutes' walk from Excel's main entrance. It offers 278 rooms as well as a bar and restaurant, and forms part of a £50m investment package that will also see the imminent opening of a four-star Novotel London Excel. The latter will boast private dining and a rooftop leisure and fitness centre. A conference suite of 12 rooms will also be available for formal meetings, while the coffee lounge is being promoted as a venue for informal gatherings during an event.
