Clayton Hotel City of London will officially open its doors today.
The four-star hotel, which is owned and operated by Dalata Hotel Group, is the eighth Clayton to open in the UK and the third London hotel in the group, joining Clayton hotels in Chiswick and Cricklewood following a £91m investment. The new hotel has also created more than 60 new jobs.
Located in Aldgate East, right in the heart of the city’s Financial District, the hotel is minutes’ walk from many of London’s iconic landmarks, including the Tower of London, Brick Lane, The Gherkin and Old Spitalfields Market, providing a central location for guests who are looking for stylish and comfortable accommodation with the City of London on their doorstep.
The hotel’s design has been inspired by Victorian textile warehouses and reflects the neighbourhood’s fascinating fusion of East End tradition and contemporary creativity.
The hotel boasts 212 modern and stylish bedrooms, the Grill restaurant as well as Dalata Hotel Group’s own coffee brand, Red Bean Roastery, a signature blend of coffee prepared by expert baristas.
Led by head chef Ian Bulpin, the Grill restaurant serves a range of delicious fresh dishes using the very best of local British produce and influences by the hotel’s East London location.
Both a la carte and fixed price menus are available, plus daily specials, to provide the best of what is local and in season. With friendly, helpful staff, good food and excellent facilities, the new hotel is the perfect place to take advantage of all London’s business, shopping and culture.
Guests can also relax and unwind in the Globe Bar, open from 12noon – 1am, with an expert team on hand to offer an exceptional experience through a spotlight on craft beer, gin and fine wine in a comfortable and stylish surrounding. A brunch menu is also available in the bar area, with express lunches offering two courses for £15 and a main course for only £10.
James Feeney, general manager at Clayton Hotel City of London, said: “We’re delighted to be opening a new hotel in Aldgate East to build on the already successful network of Clayton hotels in London at Chiswick and Cricklewood.
“This new hotel gives us a presence in a key central location within the city and is ideally located for corporate guests who want to be close to the City of London, and leisure guests visiting the many attractions that the city has to offer.”
This is the first of several Clayton hotel openings planned for the UK as part of a multi-million-pound investment throughout the Clayton Hotel network.
