The hotel is made up of two parts, with the taller structure (with the darker grey and red & blue stripes) reaching 18 stories. We’re intrigued by the “rainscreen cladding system” with LED backlighting that should give the lower half a “gentle glow at night”. There will also be a green roof and wall, as well as a heat recovery system contributing to the hotel’s environmental friendliness.
This is the one room image that is on the hotel website, but we also find it at a number of the other Motel One hotels, so whether it is a placeholder or room design is copied from one property to the next, we’re not sure. The turquoise from the group’s logo does seem to be a consistent feature, popping up in furniture and decoration throughout.
Reservations for the hotel aren’t open yet, but rates from £89 ($150) are promised, with a breakfast buffet for a reasonable £7.50 ($13) extra.
