In Hotel News

The UK already offers a great selection of venues for corporate events, yet more exciting and unique options are popping up this year.  Here are some of the most recent and upcoming venues …

Vintry and Mercer is a contemporary hotel coming to the heart of the City by the end of the year. Its inspiration from the historic trading guilds of the area; Vintry was the centre for Wine Merchants and Mercer was for Textile Sellers.

There are 92 bespoke bedrooms and suites along with three unique event rooms; each with individual character and located in a secluded and quiet part of the property.

For food and drink there are a range of exciting options; Vintry Kitchen is an Asian Tapas Restaurant on the ground floor, Mercer Roof Terrace celebrates the best of British cooking overlooking London’s skyline and basement bar DND serves vintage cocktails in a room of retro glamour.

Twickenham Stadium is preparing to unveil its renovated East Stand and East Wing this Autumn. This area in addition to its current conference and banqueting space offers contemporary events space made up of four private terraces with pitch-side views and outdoor access and four private dining areas.

The East London Hotel in Bethnal Green is set to launch this month after a £38million investment. Branded as an urban property with 161 bedrooms with an all-day bar and restaurant space.

Its proximity to Shoreditch & the City is ideal for those wanting accommodation in this up and coming destination.

The Arora Group are building a dual-branded property directly linked to Heathrow Terminal 4 which combines a Crowne Plaza and Holiday Inn Express. It has entered the final stage of its two year construction and is due to open later this month. The properties together will boast a total of 761 bedrooms making it one of the largest hotel openings in the UK this year.

Away from the Capital, The Lume opened in Manchester just last month, it is a 19 storey development made up of two hotels- Crowne Plaza and Staybridge Suites, offering 328 bedrooms. The Crowne Plaza section is an ideal venue for conferences and events with a 120 seater restaurant, bar, club lounge and seven meeting rooms which can host 200 delegates.
