Crowne Plaza London - The City

Ideally located in the heart of London’s historic Square Mile, the Crowne Plaza London – The City is a stylish hotel offering deluxe accommodation to busy business (and leisure) travellers away from the hustle and bustle of City life. Situated opposite Blackfriars station on New Bridge Street, the hotel is only a stone’s throw away from the City’s major business districts and some of London’s most major landmarks, including the London Eye, St Paul’s Cathedral and Covent Garden. Steeped in centuries of fascinating history, guests are greeted to the hotel by the stunning Grade II-listed Royal Doulton Carraraware façade, which has retained all its charm, and an impressive full height lobby. Originally built in 1916, the nine-storey building stands firm on the site of a former Bridewell Palace commissioned by Henry VIII, which later was divided into an orphanage and a prison for wayward women by his son Edward VI. After many years of neglect, a full refurbishment was carried out both inside and out.


Home to 204 bedrooms, guests can choose from a variety of rooms ranging from standard and deluxe to vast king studios and impressive suites including Vivienne Westwood and Paul Smith inspired British designer suites, with great detail even down to the playful striped pattern. For complete exclusivity, choose one of 45 popular Crowne Plaza Club rooms with complete exclusivity to the Club Lounge on the 6th floor with impressive views over the River Thames – the perfect getaway for a leisurely breakfast or a working lunch. In-room facilities such as luxury bed linen and bathrobes, flat screen TVs with Sky Sports, spacious bathrooms with Temple Spa toiletries, Sleep Advantage aromatherapy products, highspeed internet access complete with Wi-Fi and mini bar access, coupled with a selection of chocolates, all come as standard. All guests can also enjoy exclusive access to the in-house Fitness centre, complete with sauna, steam room and all the latest cardio equipment.


The Crowne Plaza London – The City hotel offers a host of state-of-the-art conference facilities and meeting rooms for groups of all sizes, combined with impeccable service and an excellent range of refreshments. From the larger Bridewell Suite with theatre-style meeting rooms up to 180 delegates to smaller sized executive boardrooms, the five meetings rooms are located on a self-contained conference floor with a dedicated Business Centre for guests to use at their leisure.
