Stratford – a top destination for visitors
Stratford is in the midst of an unprecedented boom in hotel development, with over 1000 hotel bedrooms built in the last two years.
Across the existing town centre and in the rapidly developing Stratford City, plans are afoot for a number of new hotel projects which will provide visitors to Stratford with even more accommodation options.
The higher end of the market in Stratford will be well served by an exciting development by the Manhattan Loft Company. This will be a stunning 42 storey mixed use building with a 5 star 150 bedroom hotel and 253 residential apartments, entitled the 'Manhattan Loft Gardens'.
Designed by the world famous architects Skidmore, Owings and Merrill, this building will be a stunning addition to Stratford’s skyline; overlooking the Olympic Stadium and Orbit Tower, the phrase ‘room with a view’ will never have seemed so apt!
Right at the end of Stratford High Street, at the a 350 room hotel will be built by Landprop as part of the Strand East development. Westfield will be developing two new hotels next to Stratford Station on Angel Lane.
Within the International Quarter there will also be a major new hotel. This 18-storey, sited close to Stratford International Station will be developed by Lend Lease and London & Continental Railways for Starboard Atlantic Hotels, creating a 275,000 sq ft hotel of up to 500 bedrooms, comprising the design-led Urban Villa extended stay hotel and an upmarket internationally branded hotel. A planning application will be submitted in 2014 with the complex scheduled to open in 2016.
All in all, Stratford will be one of the best places to stay in London, with a range of accomodation options to suit all budgets.
