AccorHotels opens Canary Wharf flagship

AccorHotels opens its flagship Novotel property in London’s Canary Wharf with 313 rooms, and a top-floor restaurant, bar and terrace.

The 127-metre tall property is located on 40 Marsh Street and is one of the tallest buildings in the area.

The hotel additionally features 26 individually designed suites and has done away with the typical reception desk, favouring check-in on iPads operated by staff in the reception area.

Facilities include nine meeting rooms, free wifi throughout, gym, sauna and swimming pool and the Bokan 37 restaurant, Bokan 38 bar and Bokan 39 roof terrace, as well as a ground-floor coffee shop.

Thomas Dubaere, Managing Director of AccorHotels UK & Ireland said: “Canary Wharf will be the iconic Novotel for AccorHotels UK & Ireland and aims to become the place to be in the Canary Wharf business area. Joining a network of 33 Novotel in the UK, this unique hotel is a shining example of our ambition to create innovative, guest-focused, sustainable accommodation that caters for the changing requirements of the modern-day guest as well as providing first-rate services for the local population.”

The hotel has been designed sustainably and features a combined heat power system reducing CO2 emissions, light regulation system adjusting to time, day and season, beehives on the 39th floor, and eco-friendly products used throughout the property.
