French hotel group Accor is set to open a new Novotel near London's Wembley Stadium in April 2014. The 235-bedroom Novotel London Wembley will be operated under a management contract.
Close to Wembley Stadium and Wembley Park tube station, the hotel will include 12 long-stay apartments, two meeting rooms and a Novotel "InBalance" fitness area.
Thomas Dubaere, managing director for Accor UK & Ireland, said: ‘I am pleased to welcome the Novotel London Wembley to our midscale portfolio in the UK. Like all of our hotels, the Novotel London Wembley will open in a strategic location and has been specially developed to cater to the needs of every guest. The signing of this hotel particularly strengthens our presence across the capital."
Accor opened its flagship Novotel for London alongside the new Blackfriars train station last year, and has recently announced plans to build a new Novotel in Canary Wharf by 2015 and further afield in Brentford by next year.
There are currently 400 Novotels worldwide and 32 in the UK. Accor has a total of 3,500 hotels across 92 countries across 16 brands including Sofitel, Pullman, Mercure and ibis.
