London Hotel Week

London Hotel Week will shine a light on the capital's quite breathtaking selection of quality accommodation. Peter Gray reports.

As London’s hotels prepare to reopen in May, the capital is also looking forward to its first London Hotel Week, with the event set to shine a light on the city’s impressive stock of quality establishments.

The festival is taking place between the 28th of May and the 6th of June 2021, with over 30 top hotels taking part. This figure includes some of London’s most illustrious establishments, including The Savoy, The Corinthia, Great Scotland Yard and The Lanesborough.

Complementing that list is a range of younger, edgier venues, such as Shoreditch’s Mama Shelter and Kings Cross’s ultra hip The Standard. While these venues might not have the history and tradition of the more established venues, they make up for it in sheer cool.

Discounted rates, room upgrades, free afternoon teas and transfers are just some of the deals on offer during the week, with several of the deals available for a whole month.

The event has been organised by marketing agency MMGY Global, who have based the week on the popular New York Hotel Week which has been running since 2012.

The London event is designed to reiterate the message that London’s hotel industry is ready to welcome guests again following the pandemic, however, the week is expected to become an annual event.

Jonathan Sloan, MMGY Executive Vice-President, Jonathan Sloan, has this to say about London Hotel Week: “There has never been a better time to come and explore London. As the hotel sector reopens there is a unique window for domestic travellers to experience the city without the normal influx of international visitors and offering the opportunity to support London hotels that have been particularly affected over the last 12 months.

“Hotel Week London gives us the opportunity to escape our homes while enjoying super deals from some of the capital’s finest hotels.”
