The Aftermath – Revurgence of London Hotels After World War II

World War II can be considered one of the greatest tragedies in the world. Its effects and effects spread in every corner of the world, extending to different regions, countries and continents. London has not escaped attacks.

In the time of destruction and death, the hospitality industry in London was able to escape the blows of war and collect the pieces to start over. The most outstanding hotel after the war was the London Hilton on Park Lane. It is now the tallest hotel in London and has 450 rooms.

There were more than 70,000 three to five star hotels in central London starting in 2003. Luxury hotels are more common in West End, especially in Mayfair. The five-star hotels in London are relatively small compared to other hotels abroad. The largest hotel in London, the Radisson Edwardian Heathrow Hotel, has a total of 459 rooms. These 5-star hotels differ in style, design and architecture. However, it will certainly give guests the comfort and relaxation they need.

Although most hotels in London are large traditional hotels such as Ritz, Savoy and Dorchester, some are modern boutique hotels designed like St. George & # 39; s. Hotel Martins Lane. The St. Stephen's Hotel Set in a 1960s office building, Martins Lane was designed in a simple Philippe Starck design in the 1990s. London moved to the construction of boutique hotels in the 1980s, while economic hotel chains such as Travel Inn and Travelodge became the trend in the mid-1990s. Four Seasons hotels also thrived in London after the war.

This boom began in the mid-1990s as new hotels began to open in every corner. By this time, London's hotels are offering more than ever before. The hotel's designs range from rural house styles with a Victorian feel to modern, simple spaces. At the same time, large office buildings in London in the 20th century were converted into hotels using long corridors and separate offices. Some of these are one Aldwich, which was designed with interior decorations of the 21st century in a new Baroque administrative building in the early 20th century. The Renaissance Court Chancery, opened in the 1990s in the grand office building in 1914.

How did London recover from the damage of World War II? When the war ended, the rate of hotel construction in London became relatively cheap, and then offered the opportunity for business to revive the hospitality industry again. By the 1970s, hotel construction was more severe because of the uncontrolled inflation of tourist numbers, which peaked at 6 million in 1974, from 1.6 in 1963. This boom was due to the cost of more affordable air travel which attracted many visitors to London. . So that the government issued a plan to encourage the development of hotels to encourage the construction of more hotels to respond to the large demand for tourism.

Currently, the most lucrative hotels with a large number of guests are those around London's five major airports. The Marriott Country Hall, Four Seasons Canary Wharf and Marriott West India were among the first five star hotels in London to thrive from 2000 onwards. As the 2012 Olympics, which are to be hosted in London, budget hotels begin to appear in the city in preparation for the millions of tourists and visitors who will arrive at the time. Inns and Inns like Premier Inn, Holiday Inn Express, Ibis and Travelodge are all around the streets of London.
