London City’s Crowne Plaza decided to make a few changes and we are excited to be a part of the process.
The hotel is built on the site of Henry VIII’s Bridewell Palace by Blackfriars Bridge and has 204 bedrooms including four signature “British Suites” inspired by designer icons such as Vivienne Westwood and Paul Smith. Uniquely the hotel is the only Crowne Plaza in Europe to offer multiple food and beverage outlets with three sites; Italian restaurant and wine bar Diciannove (formerly Locatelli’s Refettorio), Sichuan restaurant Chinese Cricket Club and late-licence cocktail bar Voltaire, built around original external vaults that served a bank and are now heated private dens with table service.
In recent months the hotel has undertaken extensive room refurbishment and welcomed new staff including General Manager, Food and Beverage Manager, Restaurant Manager (Diciannove) and ourselves as their new PR team. In view of the hotel’s new positioning we invited guests to the following events to introduce them to the new Crowne Plaza London The City:
