Long-stalled Greenwich hotel to finally open in 2020
A shell of a hotel has blighted Tunnel Avenue in Greenwich for half a decade now. Initial plans from around 2010 to open an Ibis fell apart and the site entered administration in 2017. Little movement has occurred.
But now we have a press release promising progress!
Radisson hotels have revealed they intend to complete the building and brand it as Radisson Red aimed at younger travelers. It’ll be the first in London. Proximity to the o2 and new 10,000 capacity music and events venue named Magazine, opening this Saturday, may have something to do with that.
Guests will see some of the best streets in London on their short walk to the new venue.
Could be worse though. At least they have paving. Visitors on the other side of the Blackwall Tunnel approach heading towards the new venue don’t even have that on one side of Millennium Way.
“Opening in 2020, the Radisson RED London Greenwich will be near so many of London’s famous sights. The O2 Arena and its iconic dome is just one of these; the hotel will put guests within easy reach of a ton of museums, the famous Prime Meridian, the legendary Cutty Sark and the cable car offering stunning views over the Thames, Canary Wharf and the City of London itself.
Alongside 70 rooms boasting the unique Radisson RED design, the hotel will offer a bistro, bar, and a gym.”
