    Holiday Inn has added a Pearly King to its ever growing number of hotels, with the launch of a new hotel in Whitechapel, in the East End of London. Holiday Inn London Commercial Road has been a significant investment for the hotel chain, with the £15m development boasting 133 standard and executive rooms for tourists and business travellers alike. Uniquely positioned between the hustle and bustle of London’s West End and the financial districts of Canary Wharf, the hotel provides visitors to London with a value for money option against the competition.Since its unveiling in July 2012, Holiday Inn London Commercial Road has opened its doors to the many guests visiting the capital for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games – bringing new jobs and revenue to what was once one of the more deprived areas of London. Now going through a massive regeneration programme, Whitechapel is fast seeing a change in pace and look for its busy streets.

    James Doyle, General Manager Holiday Inn London Commercial Road, said: “This new hotel is an important move not only for Holiday Inn, but for the Whitechapel area. Given its perfect positioning within Zone 2, guests to the hotel can still enjoy the closeness of central London without paying West End prices. All of our rooms are modelled on Holiday Inn’s new concept style, giving guests a modern and luxurious stay, all with Holiday Inn’s trademark personal service, comfort and value. The windows are also triple glazed, which means that you can come back and shut the city out for a peaceful night’s sleep. We’ve had a great reaction from guests so far, and look forward to welcoming even more guests in the future.”

    Business guests are able to take advantage of the Academy Conference & Training facilities on offer, including boardrooms and meeting spaces, plus the new ‘Simply Uplifting’ menus packed with energy boosting goodness to lift everyone’s sprits and make any meeting a success.

    There’s free Wi-Fi for all guests, whether they’re staying for business, leisure or just enjoying a cup of coffee in the Traders Bar & Lounge, which serves Starbucks teas and coffees.

    The new hotel also features a mini gym for guests to stay in tip top health whilst away from home. Or they can relax and enjoy dinner or drinks in the hotel’s contemporary bar or restaurant.

    The Best of British menu is ever-changing and offers delicious seasonal dishes so even the most frequent of visitors will enjoy fresh dining options.
