Moran plans £20m revamp of Chiswick hotel
The Moran Hotel Group has revealed plans to invest £20m in a major extension to its four-star property in West London's Chiswick.
The extension, which will create 80 new jobs, will see the addition of 81 new bedrooms bringing the total up to 200; 16 meeting rooms, a banqueting facility which will cater for up to 300 people, support areas and additional underground parking facility for 90 cars.
Tom Moran, owner of the Moran Hotel Group, said: "We're delighted to be able to announce good news and a much needed boost to the local economy.
"With the London Olympics just around the corner, we'll be well prepared for it with a great extension that is going to be every bit as stylish and contemporary as the rest of the Chiswick Moran hotel."
The architect for the project will be Project Orange, which designed the hotel for its opening in 2006.
The Ireland-based Moran Hotel Group owns and operates hotels in Dublin, Cork and north London as well as the Chiswick property.
In March 2008, it took ownership of six Bewley's Hotels, four in Dublin, and two in the UK; in Manchester Airport and Leeds City Centre.
