Hotel and restaurant chain Whitbread is to open one of its Premier Inn hotels in Greenwich. The 194 room facility with integrated restaurant is scheduled to be completed in time for the 2012 Olympics. Another new hotel in Aldgate will take the company's London rooms total to 8,500.
Mark Anderson, Property Director for Whitbread Hotels & Restaurants, said:
"This is bright news from Whitbread in increasingly gloomy economic times. We have disciplined targets for growth. These investments demonstrate that we are well on our way to delivering them. For us, it's more a case of opportunity bites than credit crunch.
