January 22, 2015 // Franchising.com // InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG®), one of the world's leading hotel companies, today announced the opening of Crowne Plaza® London - Battersea.
The rebranded 78 room hotel is owned by Fabiano Hotels LTD and managed by IHG. It is located close to Clapham Junction, one of the UK's busiest railway stations with easy connections to both the centre of London and Gatwick Airport. Given this high volume of passengers the hotel is a great location for guests on the go.
For those travelling on business the hotel features 200m2 of meeting space, free wifi and ample car parking. What's more, being adjacent to London Heliport, it's also ideal for those travelling from afar for high-level meetings. For leisure guests the area has many busy nightlife locations and is in easy reach of many of London's top attractions.
Guests can take advantage of the Verta Spa and gym facilities followed by a relaxing drink in the Terrace bar which overlooks the River Thames. For dining, the Riverside Grill Restaurant serves a British grill with a twist and diners can watch the chefs in action.
