A new hotel in Canary Wharf is being touted as the tallest in London. The Novotel London Canary Wharf is 127 metres high and opened on April 19th.

While the hotel might be the tallest building dedicated to a hotel, it’s not the highest in London. That award goes to the Shangri-La, which occupies the 34th to 52nd floors of The Shard.

Nevertheless, the Novotel London Canary Wharf offers excellent view of The Shard, in addition to Olympic Park, and Greenwich Park.

The hotel is also home to some of the city’s highest beehives, which are on the 39th floor of the hotel. The bees will produce honey for the hotel, helping the hotel to be more eco-friendly with their food.

The building also has a vegetable garden, and the hotel is aiming to use food from local suppliers and short supply chains. They will be recycling cooking oil and waste, soap, and bottled bathroom products.

A combined heat power system contributes to a 30% reduction in CO2 emissions, and a light adjustment system changes lighting according to the season and time of day. The hotel hopes to gain an Excellent BREEAM rating to prove their sustainability.

The hotel features a restaurant, bar, and roof terrace on its top floors, in addition to its 313 rooms.

Some parts of the hotel offer 360 degree views of the city. The bedrooms include standard rooms and 26 individually-designed suites. There are also nine meeting rooms, a gym, swimming pool, and sauna.

Check-in at the hotel is via iPads but, despite the lack of reception desk, the hotel has still created around 150 jobs. These include receptionists, bar and restaurant staff, and managers.

The £90 million hotel is stylish and modern, with high aims for operating within green practices. It could soon become a popular choice.
