Best Hotels Close to ExCeL London

By Steven Potter & Vicki Forde of HotelMap™

Just a short distance from ExCeL London, these hotels are ideally placed for attendees of the Protection and Management Series. From the sleek Aloft London and its direct access to the exhibition centre to the trendy Good Hotel with its modern decor and friendly vibe, there is a fantastic variety of properties to choose from.

The Good Hotel

The Good Hotel

Good Hotel London can be found floating in the Royal Victoria Dock, very near to ExCeL London. Housed in a barge that was previously a Dutch detention centre, the ultramodern hotel looks like a giant shipping container on the outside while on the inside there’s a vast communal ‘living room’ on the ground floor – open to the public and hotel guests – and a bar overlooking the river on the roof. Rooms are small and ergonomic and the restaurant serves on-trend comfort food.

Moxy London Excel

Moxy London

The first of two Moxy hotels in east London – the second is in Stratford – the Moxy London Excel is just a short walk from the exhibition centre. Part of Marriott’s cool youth brand, the hotel’s design is contemporary and understated, with grey walls and pale wood paneling – until you get to the lobby, where there's a riot of colour and art. The 24/7 bar is a focal point of the hotel, providing good spot for post-event socialising, and a quiet library area is useful for meetings and work sessions.

Aloft London Excel

Aloft London Excel

The only hotel with direct access to ExCeL London, the Aloft London Excel combines sleek design with comfort and functionality. The striking glass exterior suggests that this isn’t your typical business hotel while the vast communal areas and bar, decorated in polished wood, natural stone and trendy furniture, provide a stylish destination for post-work networking. An 11-metre swimming pool sits next to floor-to-ceiling windows and a sauna and steam room, and three dining destinations offer everything from freshly made sandwiches to pub grub.

Intercontinental London - The O2

Intercontinental London - The O2

Across the river from ExCeL London, the InterContinental London - The O2 is perfect for those who want experience a little luxury during their stay in the capital. Taking a nautical theme in line with its Thameside location, the shiny five-star hotel brings three restaurants, two bars, a spa and extensive business facilities to the unique industrial location. The Clipper Bar and 18th-floor Sky Bar both offer dramatic backdrops with spectacular views of Canary Wharf while the sophisticated and neutral rooms also let the views do the talking.

Sunborn London

Sunborn London

Floating on the Royal Victoria Dock, the Sunborn London is located within a 420ft Finnish-built ship. Gleaming white on the outside and brass, oak and marble on the inside, the hotel offers a more unique accommodation experience than the traditional business hotels located in the vicinity. The 136 rooms are larger than most in the city and boast a handsome design with porthole windows and wooden fittings while the Sundown Bar has outside seating offering views across the dock and The O2.

Doubletree by Hilton London Excel

Doubletree by Hilton London Excel

Located on the waterfront in the heart of the London Docklands area, the Doubletree by Hilton London Excel is minutes away from the exhibition centre at DLR Prince Regent Station. The modern guest rooms, many of which offer floor-to-ceiling windows and waterfront views, have been created with comfort in mind and feature everything needed to stay productive. A sustainable restaurant is located on site along with a fitness centre and business facilities.

Novotel London Excel

Novotel London Excel

Another hotel taking advantage of its waterfront location is the Novotel London Excel, which features an Upper Deck restaurant and outdoor terrace boasting spectacular views of The O2 and Victoria Docks. Fully-equipped meeting areas and large ergonomic rooms make the hotel ideal for business guests while a sauna and hammam spa are available for post-work relaxing.

Ibis Styles London Excel

Ibis Styles London Excel

Sitting directly opposite ExCeL London, just across the DLR trainline, the Ibis Styles London Excel is perfectly placed for those attending an event at the exhibition centre. Part of Accor’s ‘economy and design’ brand, the hotel offers practical, affordable and unfussy accommodation with the focus on comfort and practicality. Rooms are stylish and functional with pops of colour and London-themed artworks while on-site facilities include meeting rooms and a cafe serving hot food.
