Tag: Art'otelsView All Tags
For the rest of the week, we'll be focusing on the latest news out of Londontowne. Got a hotel we should check out or know of any tawdry London hotel scoop? Or better yet, got the skinny on where all the WAGs hang out? Tip us off.
Park Plaza had planned to demolish The Foundry to build an 18-storey, 350-room hotel and retail complex housed in a diamond shaped building. But they clearly underestimated the public’s attachment to the venue in Shoreditch, East London. The Foundry was a well loved centre for music, art and design with a strong following and even has its own Banksy. Park Plaza have assured the concerned community that art scene will stay put thus the art’otel. (There's already a few art'otels in Europe if you want to check them out.)
Work should have already started on the hotel but it seems the group of squatters have other ideas.
