Hotel chain Travelodge has announced plans for new hotels on 10 sites in UK city centres, with a construction value of £60.7m.
The sites will add 1,133 rooms to Travelodge’s portfolio, following a five-year campaign to expand beyond the firm’s traditional roadside locations.
Three of the hotels will be in Bethnal Green, Bank and Ealing in London, as the group plans to become the largest chain in the capital before the 2012 Olympics.
Others will be built in the MEN Arena, Manchester University, Bristol, Liverpool, Andover, Camberley and Cannock.
In 2009, Travelodge expanded faster than in any year since it began in 1985.
