Holiday Inn and Staybridge Suites Stratford London are up and running…
Category: Venues | London Venue |
If you are looking for a hotel close to the Olympic Park, they don’t come much closer than IHG’s Holiday Inn and Staybridge Suites in Stratford London. In fact, you’d better keep your bedroom window closed if you stay there, in case the wind takes the javelin in the wrong direction. It’s that close!
CL Events were willing guinea pigs for a trial run, prior to the Holiday Inn Stratford London’s official opening in May 2012. It’s been a while since Holiday Inn have had a new opening in London, so this hotel is a flagship for the brand. It has all you’d expect of a four star venue: excellent staff, well equipped bedrooms, a restaurant and bar with an outdoor patio/bbq area and seven conference rooms for small to mid-sized meetings. Plus, of course, a mini gym, where budding Usain Bolts can view the Olympic Stadium, whilst on the treadmill.
Step outside the door, go left, and you are in a Sporting Disneyworld; with well-manicured walkways and upbeat piped music to jolly you along to the Olympic Village. Take a right, and you are in the retail heaven (or hell, depending on your viewpoint) that is Westfield Stratford City, Europe’s largest shopping centre. To quote my son: “Look! You can see John Lewis from your bedroom!” Forget the biggest sporting event London has ever seen, he knows where my priorities lie.
Bedrooms for the Holiday Inn Stratford London are on the fifth to seventh floors, go up to level eight and you’re in the welcoming lobby of Staybridge Suites.
Staybridge Suites, London Stratford offer studios and one bedroom suites, complete with fridge, cooktop, microwave, dishwasher and even a shared laundry room. This means if you are too tired to be tempted by Jamie Oliver’s Italian, new eateries like Bumpkin (serving British fayre, complete with private room), or the multitude of outlets in Westfield’s World Foodcourt; you can pick up a ready meal from the nearby Waitrose and M&S and have a quiet night in to research the shopping using the free internet!
The Staybridge Suites and Holiday Inn Stratford London are now open, with all of London on your doorstep.
