A new £95million hotel has opened in Whitechapel.

To mark 30 years since Travelodge was founded, they opened their new “flagship” hotel in Middlesex Street today.

The hotel is a Travelodge Plus, meaning the hotel offers more choice on room size and features to guests than in other hotels owned by the company.

The 395-room hotel is the company’s largest to date and it will create 100 new jobs, according to Travelodge.

Travelodge managing director Paul Harvey said: “This opening, which is our 75th London hotel, celebrates how far the brand has grown and become symbolic in London for offering unbeatable value and making it affordable for business and leisure travellers to visit our capital.”

The company, which has 550 hotels across the country, are looking for sites for 100 new Travelodge hotels to be opened in London within the next ten years, he added.
