Best Western Great Britain has announced the addition of The Best Western London Queens Crystal Palace Hotel to its growing portfolio of over 260 independent hotels.
Originally built in 1854, the hotel occupies a Victorian building that has recently undergone an extensive period of refurbishment — doubling the number of bedrooms to 331 in total, due to be complete by the new year.
Located just eight miles from central London, and a mere ten-minute walk from nearby train stations, the hotel caters for leisure and business travellers alike. The site of the original Crystal Palace, home to the thrilling Crystal Palace Theme Park Maze, is also situated close by, while the highlights of central London are all within easy reach.
“Investing for the future and changing for the better”
Rob Paterson, CEO at Best Western Great Britain, said: “We’re delighted to welcome The Best Western London Queens Crystal Palace Hotel to our brilliantly different collection of independently owned properties. Best Western members are investing for the future and changing for the better, allowing us to deliver more to our guests.
“We look forward to working in partnership with the team at the hotel to showcase and celebrate their hotel both locally and globally.”
Upon joining the Best Western Great Britain brand, The Best Western London Queens Crystal Palace Hotel aims to provide access to a range of tools and expertise to support in driving tourism to the local area.
