Welcomed by chairman Shiraz Boghani, vice chairman Nadeem Boghani of Splendid Hospitality Group and chief executive, Stuart Bailey, Malhotra, member of Parliament for Feltham and Heston, supported the project from its early days, and enjoyed a hard hat tour of the development site.
The 125-bedroom property, located on the site of the former Master Robert Hotel, is in close proximity to Heathrow’s main terminal and will serve both the business traveller and community markets, and will combine both hotel and private dwelling accommodation.
Splendid said the hotel will take influence from nearby early-to-mid-20th Century buildings including the Hoover building, Firestone headquarters and Gillette factory, the design-led development will also include a meeting room, dining and car parking.
Bailey said: “Ibis Styles London Heathrow East is the fourth of our franchise partnerships with AccorHotels. Putting a striking design scheme at the heart of our offer, we are looking forward to welcoming our first guests when the hotel opens later in the year.”
Malhotra added: “I am pleased to visit Ibis Styles Heathrow East Hotel which will bring jobs, meeting spaces, hotel and private accommodation to a prime location in our community. I wish the new project every success, and my thanks to Splendid Hospitality for their work engaging and supporting the local community.
“Our local area thrives when there are strong relationships between businesses and the community. I look forward to the relationship developing with local people and the support for employment which will contribute to local prosperity.”
