Oh lookie, what do we have here? Another new hotel for London? Actually, no. We have four more hotels that plan on openingin London over the next few years. They are: The Corinthia Hotel, Ibis Hotel, Novotel and the Oxford Hotel. Allow us now to tell you a bit about each.

The Corinthia Hotel London is the latest hotel from luxury hotel group Corinthia. The hotel set to open early 2011 will rival the likes of Claridge's, The Savoy and The Dorchester.

Located near Trafalgar Square, the hotel will have 294 rooms and suites (pictured), some with views of the Thames and the London Eye. The building which used to be home to the Metropole Hotel, has been transformed into a five star hotel with restaurants, fully restored Victorian ballroom, courtyard foyer and luxury spa - which will also be London's largest spa.

Also opening their first London hotel is UK hotel chain, Oxford Hotels & Inns. Set to open in Kings Cross, the hotel which will count the new St Pancras Renaissance hotel as its neighbour. The grade II 19th Century listed building which previously housed the Great Northern Hotel will be transformed into a boutique luxury hotel with 94 rooms, a bar and restaurant.

The hotel is set to open late 2011, lets just hope they don’t have to put back the opening date as they will be cutting it fine for the Olympics.

Not content with opening one hotel the Accor Hotels have gone one better and will open two new hotels. And what's more the hotels will be opposite each other. The four-star Novotel will have 182 rooms and the budget Ibis will have 297 rooms, both hotels will be located in Blackfriars and will open in time for the Olympics.

Not that we're keeping a running count or anything but with this new batch, that makes it about 23 upcoming London hotels you should know about. We'd amend the list right now but um, given that these new hotel announcements keep coming, we'll wait a bit longer. In the meantime, tip us off if you hear of any more!
