Offering unrivalled access to a host of London’s most bustling business and leisure hubs, the new 196-bed ibis London Canning Town hotel delivers style, comfort and affordability to all travellers, in one of the capital’s most exciting emerging locations.
The hotel is a key element of the newly-established Hallsville Quarter – a £600 million town centre project established in conjunction with the London Borough of Newham and property development company Linkcity. The hotel and surrounding residential and retail properties form a key part of the much wider £3.7 billion Canning Town and Custom House Regeneration Programme, which aims to transform and establish the east London area as a thriving and prosperous community.
ibis’ commitment to the local area includes the creation of 25 jobs at the hotel and supporting local food and beverage providers where possible – including trendy east London coffee roasters Climpson and Sons, who will provide beans for the hotel’s Chill #08 café bar and restaurant. The café and bar will act as a food and beverage hub for the area, for hotel guests and visitors alike.
Commenting on the opening, James Wheatcroft from ibis Hotels says: “When you think of cool areas in London you naturally look east. Canning Town is a brilliantly located, up and coming area, so we’re delighted that our hotel is an integral part of its regeneration. Our Chill #08 café bar and restaurant will attract hotel guests and local visitors alike, making it a real go-to destination in the community. We’re committed to offering all our guests access to incredible experiences and this new hotel is perfectly located to provide this, being a stone’s throw from The O2 and within easy reach of all our capital’s main attractions and key transport hubs, such as London City Airport and even Heathrow.”
Guests staying at the hotel can expect a good night’s sleep thanks to soundproof, air-conditioned rooms and revolutionary bedding concept, Sweet Bed™ by ibis. Free super-fast fibre Wi-Fi and 24-hour reception service will keep guests connected at all times.
ibis Canning Town will also feature ibis’ unique guest welcome initiative introduced in 2017. In all ibis hotels, guests are greeted on arrival by staff with room keys in hand who are linked to the ibis online fast check-in and check-out service via smartphones. This has replaced check-in desks and unnecessary waiting times with smiling faces and stress-free experiences, allowing even more time for guests to enjoy a stay in the city around them.
