LONDON, April 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Premier Inn, the UK's best value hotel chain*, is expanding its London portfolio of hotels with a new site in the heart of London. The new hotel in Leicester Square will bring a total of £12 million to the local economy through tourism and trade.
The new 83 room hotel is just one of twenty new sites opening across London in the next 24 months, which is a part of Premier Inn's plans to grow to 65,000 rooms within the next 5 years.
Located at 1 Leicester Place, the hotel is in the heart of Central London, within walking distance of many popular theatres, shops and London Tourist attractions such as The National Portrait Gallery and Covent Garden.
The new site which will open at the end of May has created 32 job opportunities for London residents, and is a leader in innovation with double soundproofing that ensures sleeping guests are not disturbed by action outside the hotel.
Mina Fattahi, General Manager of Premier Inn Leicester Square commented: "We are delighted to be opening a new hotel in the heart of London. Our hotel is in a prime location for those wanting to explore London, and within walking distance of many tourist attractions. It's ideal for those wanting to be right at the centre of activity and our double sound proof rooms ensure that no matter the hustle and bustle outside, guests are guaranteed a great night's sleep."
Each bedroom caters for up to two adults and two children (aged 15 and under) and includes an en-suite bathroom; a king size bed; remote control TV with Freeview; tea/coffee making facilities, and a spacious desk area with Wi-Fi Internet access. The site will also offer the 'Premier Breakfast'.
