DORSETT CITY, LONDON OPENING Q1 2017
Dorsett Hospitality International has announced the development of its second hotel in London, Dorsett City, a 13-storey building formerly known as The Matrix, located next to Aldgate tube station and the 18th century St Botolph Church.
Dorsett Hospitality International’s first hotel, Dorsett Shepherds Bush, opened in 2014 and Dorsett City, London, will further underline the company’s vision to expand its hotel portfolio in selected strategic regions in the UK and Europe.
On this exciting expansion, Winnie Chiu, President and Executive Director of Dorsett Hospitality International, said: “We consider the United Kingdom to be one of the most popular destinations for tourists and business travellers around the world. Major European countries, including the UK, are attracting an unprecedented number of Chinese arrivals and the opening of a second hotel in London will continue to capture this key market for Dorsett, in line with our on-going business strategy.”
Set to open in Q1 2017, the 13-storey Dorsett City, London will be a sleek and sensitively-designed building with 275 guestrooms and will also house two restaurants, a bar and 1,600 sq. ft. of meeting space for the business community – to be carried out by Dexter Moren Associates.
John Connolly, Head of UK Development for Dorsett Hospitality International, said: “Given the architectural sensitivity of this historic and typically dense area of London, The Matrix is indeed a landmark building; both figuratively as well as architecturally; and we are indeed honoured and grateful to the local community and The City of London Corporation for granting us the approval to proceed with our re-development plan.”
