Aloft London Excel
Aloft London Excel is a venue directly connected to the most popular convention centre in the city, the ICC. There are 252 rooms in this curvaceous construction, all as snazzy, sleek and inviting as the last. With super-high-speed internet access on the house and a smoke-free atmosphere, this clean and up-to-date environment is accentuated all the more. All the bathrooms feature oversized shower heads for a full-on blast, and the televisions are gigantic too at a whopping 42”. The signature beds are remarkably comfortable and the ‘Savvy Suites’ give visitors amazing views of the city.
Elsewhere around the hotel the trendiness continues with the likes of the onsite Re:fuel restaurant whose sole purpose is to provide a stop-and-go snack service so you can get your fix whenever you need it. The W XYZ bar specialises in cocktails and employs a DJ to get the crowd into a spin. There are pool tables and a lounge area for the ultimate chillout vibe, and the ability to plug in your laptop here only extends the potential sociability aspect.
Other facilities in Aloft Excel include the fitness centre with indoor swimming pool – aptly named Splash – and the fully-equipped gym where you can burn up a sweat before cooling off. You can check yourself in at this hotel, by means of the handy monitors at reception. Pets are welcome here and children are treated with free sweets upon entry (free for kids up to 12 years old). So, for one of the most chilled out and relaxed atmospheres in any hotel in London, one whose location sees it within easy reach of London City Airport, the O2 and beyond, check out (or check-in to) Aloft London Excel.
