New hotel set to offer transfer time to London Heathrow Airport of under 15 minutes
June 2018 – AccorHotels, one of the world’s leading travel and lifestyle groups with over 4,300 hotels, resorts and residences worldwide, has announced its new economy hotel ibis Styles London Ealing is set to open this summer.
ibis Styles London Ealing embodies the creativity and good humour of the ibis Styles brand with a theme that reflects the surrounding area. Continuing AccorHotels’ rapid expansion and adding to its strong portfolio of luxury and economy hotels, the launch of the property will provide business travellers with a comfortable and accessible hotel in the heart of the capital.
The brand new hotel is positioned just five minutes from Ealing Broadway underground station and will offer guests convenient, contemporary and well-connected accommodation. Following the forthcoming completion of Crossrail transfer time to London Heathrow Airport terminals two and three will be just 14 minutes. Key business destinations including the City, Liverpool Street and Canary Wharf will also all be accessible in 25 minutes or less.
The hotel has 120 cinematic themed rooms and features include 24-hour reception and free, super-fast fibre Wi-Fi. The hotel will also feature ibis’ unique guest welcome initiative introduced in 2017. In all ibis hotels, guests are greeted on arrival by staff with room keys in hand who are linked to the ibis online fast check-in and check-out service via smartphones. This replaces check-in desks and unnecessary waiting times with smiling faces and stress-free experiences, allowing even more time for guests to enjoy a stay in the city around them.
Ealing also offers a host of interesting sights to see and activities do nearby. Guests can learn about Ealing Studios, the oldest movie studios in the world; wander around the 28-acre Walpole Park or enjoy a bite to eat and drink in one of Ealing Green’s many independent bars and restaurants.
Commenting on the opening, James Wheatcroft from ibis Hotels says: “We are dedicated to providing comfortable and accessible accommodation for business travellers, to make their travel as easy and straightforward as possible. The new ibis Styles in Ealing is ideal for those guests who need quick access to the airport and connections into the centre of London. Ealing’s transport links make it the ideal location for business travellers staying in the capital.”
