Travelodge has opened its most sustainable hotel, with a BREEAM Excellent rating and an Energy Performance Certificate rating.
The new-build 350-room London Docklands Travelodge boasts a number of sustainable features, including solar panels on the roof, air source heat pumps and electric vehicle charging points.
It is one of two hotels which have opened under the budget chain’s TravelodgePLUS brand, a new design concept building on the success of the group’s “budget chic” hotel format and following feedback from the company’s largest consumer survey of around 5,000 UK business and leisure travellers.
The other property is in the northern town of Hexham.
The London hotel features scenic views of the O2, The Thames and Canary Wharf and a new-style reception area, with soft low LED lighting, stylish leather bench seating and wooden style flooring.
It also has Bar Café with distinctive zones designed to suit the needs of business and leisure travellers. These include counter seating with built-in USB and laptop power for those working outside the room, dining zones with intimate booths and dining benches for groups.
