Dorsett’s Second London Hotel Will Be Next to St. Botolph Church
March 5, 2014 at 8:48 AM
When we talked about the arrival of Dorsett Hotels in London a few weeks back, we knew that the conversion of Shepherd’s Bush Pavilion wasn’t its only project. A second hotel – Dorsett City – is being planned on Aldgate, right next to St. Botolph Church. That puts it a few minutes' walk north of Trinity Square and just west of recent newcomer Qbic.
Dorsett City will rise from the reconstruction of an office building called The Matrix, to be ready in late 2015. Three stories are being added for a total of 275 rooms and suites, in addition to two restaurants, a bar, meeting facilities, and a spa.
This second shot gives a better impression of the building in relation to neighboring St. Botolph Church, to which the hotel group is giving a piece of land for additional landscaping and improved access – more, including interesting before and after CGI shots of the exterior can be found here.
What we’re still lacking though is anything to show us what the Chinese-inspired rooms here and in Shepherd’s Bush will look like; we’ll keep you posted as we find out more.
