A hotel franchise says it will create 15 new jobs and boost the local economy by as much as £2million when it opens a second hotel in Romford.
Travelodge will open at the Quadrant Shopping Centre, Quadrant Arcade, in the summer.
It will be known as The London Romford The Quadrant Travelodge, which will have 65 rooms and a bar café. It is one of five set to open across the capital this year.
Chief executive Peter Gowers said: “The march of the low-cost hotel sector continues, fuelled by businesses looking to reduce travel costs and the new generation of independent leisure travellers.
“To meet the growing demand, we are adding further capacity in key cities such as London and expanding to new markets.”
