Travelodge has revealed that it would like to open a hotel next to every tube station in London to tap into ‘neglected’ areas of the capital. The hotel chain, which has recently overtaken Hilton to have the most hotels in London, has said it will concentrate on building hotels in the suburbs on the run-up and after the Olympic Games. “Across the outer London boroughs there is a clear lack of hotel rooms. Large numbers of residents, centres of employment and excellent transport links all drive room nights. Yet due to the dominance of the central London market, hotel companies have neglected these areas over the years,” said Paul Harvey, managing director of development for Travelodge. “It is no exaggeration to say that every tube station could sustain a budget hotel and we have set an ambitious growth target over the forthcoming years in London”.
