Apex acquires third London property

Apex Hotels has acquired a third property in the City with a view to converting it into the first hotel in London’s Inns of Court. The hotel group plans to invest more than £60m in conversion of the Serjeant’s Inn property, which it purchased from legal organisation the Honourable Society of the Inner Temple, into a four-star hotel. If Apex Hotels secures planning permission for the conversion, the 170-room hotel will also offer conference and business facilities, a restaurant and bar. Apex Hotels has an existing property in London, Apex City of London Hotel on Seething Lane, which is being extended with 49 additional rooms due for completion in September. The group is also converting a former office block in Copthall Avenue to an 89-room, four-star hotel scheduled to open in June 2009. Apex Hotels managing director Angela Vickers said: “Demand for the Apex product in London continues to drive our expansion and we are confident that the two new London properties will achieve the same success.”
