ExCeLlent: Aloft London Excel is Open and Actually Affordable
Ladies and gents, there's another new hotel in London but this one is actually affordable and comes with free WiFi! Yup, we're talking about Aloft London Excel near the ExCeL international exhibition and convention centre in London's Docklands which opened on time, like it said, it would on November 1. (And it looks like they dropped the awk random capitalization too.)
The hotel has all things Aloft inside like the re: mix lobby lounge, the WXYZ bar, the re:fuel 24-hour grab-and-go mini-market, the re:charge fitness center, the splash swimming pool, a touch-n-go check-in kiosk and the arf program which allows guests to bring their pets along with them. The four-legged friends will get an Aloft-branded bowl, bed and complimentary treats and toys.
Rates at the hotel start around £120 a night but if you book before tomorrow, the hotel is offering a discount up to 30 percent off its room rates. But it's actually even less. We found rooms for next weekend for just £64 a night!. That's for an advance purchase rate but if you need more flexibility, regular rate rooms are going for £110. Cheerio!
