Hilton will open a new hotel under its Curio Collection brand in Canary Wharf early next year.
Scheduled to open in January, Lincoln Plaza London will have 129 rooms, a 24-hour gym, 18-metre pool, sauna and 465 sqm of event space across seven meeting rooms.
Located on Milharbour, the hotel is a ten-minute walk from the Jubilee line at Canary Wharf station, and five minutes from the DLR at South Quay.
A range of food and drink outlets have been designed by award-winning firm Design LSM, including pan-Indian restaurant Mr Todiwala’s Kitchen by chef Cyrus Todiwala, and cocktail bar Jack Speak Bar and Terrace, evoking a nineteenth century British Navy Officers’ Wardroom.
Meanwhile a ‘Food Store’ will offer three more options: Restaurant, a casual all-day dining space led by chef Rumel Pinnock; Lobby Bar, with a negroni menu and standard options; and Provisions, an organic store and wine shop.
The bedrooms are by RPW Design, and will feature steel and brass furnishings, marble rainfall showers and bedding from Kings of Cotton.
The hotel interiors have been inspired by Canary Wharf’s industrial heritage, with polished concrete floors, steel feature walls, Crittall-style windows and reclaimed materials like railway sleepers.
Hilton said the hotel “combines accessible luxury with a unique feel-good factor”.
It will also address some sustainability concerns by banning plastic coffee cups and straws, buying ethically sourced coffee from Mozzo and partnering with profit-for-purpose toilet paper company Who Gives a Crap.
Curio is Hilton’s four- to five-star lifestyle brand, with a London Stratford property planned for 2020.
