The opening of the newest Apex London hotel may be a year away but the countdown has already begun. The hotel’s website even has a digital counter to counts down the days, hours, minutes and seconds remaining!
There are still well over 200 days to go so we wouldn’t be getting too excited just yet, especially given that hotel opening delays are so common these days. However from the images posted on the Apex Hotels Facebook page it looks like it is taking shape nicely, with carpets already laid and light fixtures completed in some of the bedrooms.
The Apex Temple Court is going to be located just off Fleet Street and will be the first hotel to be housed in one of London’s Inns of Court.
The 4 star hotel will have 184 rooms in five different categories. As well as stylish decor, the rooms will all have up to date technology including 42″ LCD TVs, iPod/MP3 docking stations and free WiFi.
The hotel will also feature the Chambers Restaurant and Bar, an executive lounge, courtyard and hotel gym. If the countdown is right, the hotel will open on March 30th 2012 and you’ll soon be able to make bookings online.
This will be the third London hotel for Apex and while it is being built, its sibling hotels are coming up with inventive ways to stay in the limelight.
The Apex City of London for example – one of the best mid-price London hotels according to TripAdvisor – is offering free jugs of cocktails and ice lollies to anyone who books a meeting or event in July and August.
