Intercontinental Hotel Group's new London O2 property is set to open in late 2015, IHG has confirmed.
The 453-room and 18-storey property is currently under construction as part of a 7.6 acre development scheme on the Greenwich Peninsula, which was part regenerated following the 2012 London Olympics.
The hotel, which is adjacent to the O2, will feature a conference centre complete with 20 multi-functional rooms and a 3000sqm pillar-free ballroom, which can accommodate around 3,000 delegates.
Facilities include a hotel bar, two restaurants and an 18th floor Sky Bar. It is located close to North Greenwich tube station and six miles from London City airport.
Arora Group’s commercial director, Raj Shah, said: “We are excited to be opening the largest and most luxurious hotel in Greenwich with the largest single pillar free ballroom within a London hotel.
"With the Olympics, this area of London has undergone a dramatic transformation and we are delighted to be part of that ongoing regeneration that renders this area one of the most visited destinations in the city.
"This hotel will bring a new dimension of leisure and business facilities to Greenwich and Canary Wharf and we believe a welcome new option for meeting planners looking to place large events in the capital with a globally recognised hotel brand.”
InterContinental London - The O2 is managed and operated by The Arora Group under a franchise agreement with IHG.
