Amba Hotels Kick Off With Four London Hotels

June 24, 2014 at 8:26 AM | by | Comments (0)

We’re slowly starting to see a tiny bit of what new hotel group Glh. will be up to over the next few years, specifically with its luxury brand Clermont Hotels in London and Singapore. The changes Glh. is introducing from its Guoman days don’t end there though, with a second new brand of “contemporary 4-star” hotels called Amba making its entry into the hotel world as well.

Aiming to have nearly 2100 rooms in Europe by 2015 and 30 cities within the UK alone to target, as well as international expansion in China and the US, Amba Hotels has big plans. They start with four London hotels: Marble Arch (previously a Thistle Hotel), Tower Bridge (previously Guoman - above), Charing Cross (previously Guoman) and Buckingham Palace Road (previously the Grosvenor Hotel). The four hotels have another £70 ($120) million in investment coming their way, with Amba Charing Cross (attached to the train station of the same name) opening first under the Amba flag in October.

Glorious! Thistle Hotels Introduces 'Lazy Sundays' with a Check-Out of 6pm

October 21, 2010 at 3:25 PM | by | Comments (0)

There’s nothing like a lazy weekend away but it’s something of a downer when you finish breakfast and realize that check out was half an hour ago. UK chain Thistle Hotels feel your pain, though – they’ve just launched a Lazy Sundays package which lets you stay through till 6pm Sunday. [Insert your favorite line from Lazy Sunday here. Chronic-what-cles of Narnia!]

You’ll also get breakfast in bed until midday (another annoyance – wanting a lie in, and realizing breakfast ends at 10am) and a newspaper so you have something other than the obvious to occupy your time. Even better, you can swap breakfast for a full on Sunday lunch if you feel like leaving the boudoir.

And if you get too comfy in the room, you can even sleep over on the Sunday night for a reduced price, starting at £23.50.

The package starts at £70 per person (that’s for the Thistle Heathrow, although to be honest, you might not want to hang around there) and is valid throughout and next year - until 31 December 2011.
