New Radisson Edwardian Hotel to open at New Providence Wharf

Developer Ballymore has appointed Radisson Edwardian Hotels (REH) to operate a 4-star, 169-bedroom hotel at its 'New Providence Wharf' development in London's Docklands. The riverside hotel, which will be operated by REH under a long-term management contract, is due to open in September 2007 and will fulfil the increasing demand for luxury accommodation and facilities in the Canary Wharf area.

The hotel will comprise an 8-storey building connected via a triple height glass atrium to the base of the development's iconic 30 storey 'Ontario Tower'. Designed by Skidmore Owings & Merrill (SOM), the hotel will have a curved glass, stainless steel and terracotta façade to complement the development's existing buildings and a contemporary interior designed by Aukett.

The hotel will include comprehensive facilities including the East River Spa (gym and treatment rooms), a bar and restaurant with river views and outdoor dining, as well as a full range of business facilities including conference, meeting and banqueting rooms catering for up to 200 guests. All meeting rooms have natural daylight and state of the art audio visual facilities.

"The hotel is ideally located close to Canary Wharf, London City Airport, and the Excel Exhibition Centre. It is also very close to O2, which will host concerts, sporting events, cinemas and exhibitions year-round, which will be great news to both business and leisure guests" says Paul Duggan, General Manager, Radisson Edwardian New Providence Wharf.

Jasminder Singh, Founder & Chairman of REH comments: "We are particularly excited by this project. As a major supplier of deluxe hotel accommodation, we want to continue to provide a comprehensive coverage of London for all our customers. There is no doubt that they have a strong need for quality accommodation in one of the world's fastest emerging financial districts."

The hotel forms a significant component of New Providence Wharf, Ballymore's mixed-use scheme which already includes over 700 residential apartments with ancillary health and leisure suite and a further 300 or so to follow in future phases together also with shops and offices. The development's exceptional architecture is complemented by impressive landscaped grounds, which include planted areas, riverside walkways and large-scale water features. 

Radisson Edwardian Hotels is a collection of 12 luxury hotels located in central London, Heathrow and Manchester. Each of the hotels is carefully designed to provide stylish accommodation combined with a high level of service and includes individually designed rooms, the latest technology, meeting spaces and chic restaurants and bars.
