SOUTH LONDON HOTEL JOINS GLOBAL HOTEL BRAND TO DRIVE TOURISM

Best Western Great Britain has announced the addition of The Best Western London Queens Crystal Palace Hotel to its growing portfolio of over 260 independent hotels. Ideally located just eight miles from central London, and a mere ten-minute walk from nearby train stations, the hotel is perfect for leisure and business travelers alike.

Originally built in 1854, the property occupies a magnificent Victorian building and has recently undergone an extensive period of refurbishment, doubling the number of bedrooms to 331 in total, due to be complete by late 2018.

The spacious public areas are all pleasantly furnished and include a stylish bar and lounge, with Wi-Fi access throughout.

Popular attractions, such as the original Crystal Palace, home to the thrilling Crystal Palace Theme Park Maze, are situated close by, while the highlights of central London are all within easy reach. Such sights can be accessed quickly but are far enough away so that the hotel lies outside of the hustle and bustle of the capital.

Upon joining the Best Western Great Britain brand, The Best Western London Queens Crystal Palace Hotel has access to a range of tools and expertise to support in driving tourism to the local area.

Fasih Khan, General Manager for LHG at The Best Western London Queens Crystal Palace Hotel, commented: “We’re extremely proud to join the Best Western family and take our property to the next level. Looking ahead to the future, we are confident that with the help of Best Western that we can share the success of a global brand that is committed to supporting its properties and maintaining excellent customer service, whilst maintaining our individuality and demonstrating what makes us unique, something we can’t wait to showcase to our guests.”

Rob Paterson, CEO at Best Western Great Britain, added: “We’re delighted to welcome The Best Western London Queens Crystal Palace Hotel to our brilliantly different collection of independently owned properties. Best Western members are investing for the future and changing for the better, allowing us to deliver more to our guests. We look forward to working in partnership with the team at the hotel to showcase and celebrate their hotel both locally and globally."

Meher Nawab, CEO at LHG: “From the outset, LHG was committed to developing sympathetic and practical proposals for the hotel, and we are excited that Best Western has decided to add Best Western London Queens Crystal Palace Hotel to its thriving hotel family. The newly refurbished and expanded hotel will bring in both business and leisure travellers, adding an estimated £2.3 million of annual spending capacity to the local area.”

Best Western Great Britain’s members have invested over £210m since 2015 improving properties and guest experiences.
