    On the 12th October, Travelodge announced it has opened its 486th hotel, a stone’s throw from the Bank of England. The London Bank Travelodge, a 75-room grade ll listed property represents an investment of £7.5 million and has already proven to be one of the most successful new hotel opening’s in the Company’s 26 year history. In the first few days of trading, Travelodge has reported a record level of bookings at its latest opening. The majority of reservations have come from City Workers who have taken advantage of Travelodge’s low cost rooms and booked ahead in preparation of the Christmas party season.

    The new London Bank Travelodge is also the start of a £223 million expansion programme for London’s biggest hotel chain – with the opening of 26 hotels scheduled over the next 24 months. This investment will create 710 new jobs across the capital.

    Ten of these new hotels will be opened in the next ten months before the 2012 Games start. Many of these new properties will be located within walking distance of the venues where the Games will be taking place. This includes a 188-room Travelodge hotel in Stratford – which is just minutes away from the Olympic Park and a 131-room property at London Excel where the boxing, fencing, weightlifting and wrestling events will take place.

    Listed below are details of the ten hotels Travelodge is opening before the start of the Olympic Games:

    1. London Cricklewood
    2. London Edmonton
    3. London Stratford
    4. London Twickenham
