LINCOLN PLAZA LONDON, CURIO COLLECTION BY HILTON
Curio Collection by Hilton has opened its doors in Canary Wharf. The new Lincoln Plaza London hotel is more than just a place to stay; it is a complete lifestyle experience that combines accessible luxury with a unique feel-good factor.
Like its siblings, Lincoln Plaza London embodies the spirit of its home, with the hotel’s ultra-modern exterior inspired by the sleek architectural lines of the city’s financial and commercial hub in which it is located.
Also drawing inspiration from the area’s industrial heritage are interiors that imaginatively blend contemporary and classical materials, from polished concrete floors, steel feature walls and Crittall-style windows through to clever use of railway sleepers and other reclaimed materials.
Lincoln Plaza London’s focus on luxurious lifestyle facilities includes a range of innovative food & drink outlets designed by the multi award-winning Design LSM (Demoiselle by Galvin, Fancy Crab).
These are spearheaded by signature Pan-Indian restaurant Mr Todiwala’s Kitchen, the much-anticipated new opening by acclaimed chef Cyrus Todiwala OBE, whose approach to sustainable food production, use of local ingredients and environmental best practice fits perfectly with the hotel’s own stance on nature and the environment.
The hotel’s Food Store concept meanwhile comprises three vibrant offerings: Restaurant, a social space for casual all-day dining under the auspices of Senior Head Chef Rumel Pinnock; a Lobby Bar where visitors can choose from a dedicated Negroni menu, or a local brew from nearby Kernel or London Fields Brewery, and Grocery, in which guests and locals alike can enjoy the ultimate take-home experience in the form of locally sourced, organic and artisanal products complemented by selections from a curated wine shop.
Finally, Jack Speak Bar and Terrace, with its exclusive cocktail collection, premium spirits and small producer wines, offers a playful, contemporary twist on the 19th Century British Navy Officers’ Wardroom.
The design cues of these areas transition seamlessly to the bedrooms, creating a luxurious residential feel.
Created by RPW Design, a world leader in hospitality interiors (RAF Club London, The Fairmont St Andrews and the Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park), Lincoln Plaza London’s 129 guest rooms are the very pinnacle of comfort and style. From the bespoke shelving units made of blackened steel and antique brass though to the marble rainfall showers, all elements work together to create a feeling of relaxed, accessible richness. It is also the little extras that will make Lincoln Plaza London stand out from the crowd, whether that be hairdryers with three-metre cables, complimentary water, premium bedding from Kings of Cotton or bespoke artwork.
Guests can also luxuriate in the hotel’s state-of-the-art, 24-hour fitness centre, complete with 18-metre pool, sauna and steam room, whilst with over 465 square metres of event space across seven meeting rooms, Lincoln Plaza London is perfect for all manner of business or social gatherings.
Lincoln Plaza London also places great emphasis on CSR, whether it’s a campaign to end modern slavery in the hospitality industry or banning plastic in its coffee cups, take away packaging and straws. The hotel has also partnered with Stone Street Soaphouse in Kent to create a bathroom range made from locally sourced natural ingredients; Mozzo, which not only produces sensational coffee but is committed to helping the people of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and profit for purpose toilet paper company, Who Gives a Crap.
Lincoln Plaza London is well connected by the Jubilee Line on the London Underground and the Docklands Light Railway network. Within easy reach via the DLR from South Quay Station is the O2 Arena, ExCel Exhibition Centre, Westfield Shopping Centre and London City Airport, while central London is just 15 minutes away on the Jubilee Line.
