Opening in Spring 2017, London's Nobu Hotel Shoreditch Will Be Nobu Hotels' First European Hotel

LONDON, U.K. March 1, 2017 - Opening in June 2017, located in the heart of London’s artistic quarter, Nobu Hotel Shoreditch is the first European hotel from the internationally renowned Nobu Hotels brand. The hotel’s 143 guest rooms and 7 suites offer a tranquil escape from the hustle and bustle of one of the city’s most culturally significant districts, as well as an iconic dining experience at the brand new Nobu Shoreditch restaurant.

Set back from the lively cultural hub of Great Eastern Street, Nobu Hotel Shoreditch offers a dynamic blend of Nobu’s signature east-meets-west philosophy and Shoreditch’s creative and industrial energy. As well as an exclusive spa and wellness area, guests can take advantage of a series of innovative culinary experiences, specially created for Nobu Shoreditch, available not only in London’s newest Nobu restaurant, but across the lobby bar, extensive meeting spaces and 24 hour in-room dining.

The contemporary and distinctive design of Nobu Hotel Shoreditch marks it as one of East London’s most interesting attributes. The materiality of the property references its Shoreditch location and the history of one of London’s most culturally rich districts.

Giving back to the local area, Nobu Hotel Shoreditch will be opening its stunning pocket garden, creating a public space between the vibrant streets and the calmness of the hotel, offering an oasis in the hectic heart of East London.

Each of the 143 guest rooms exudes refined, relaxed sophistication, linking timeless design with contemporary functionality for the modern traveller. Black joinery contrasts with the exposed concrete structure and soft textiles of the furniture to create an interior that is at once visually appealing to sight and touch. This is juxtaposed with the bright white bathrooms, featuring a walk-in rain shower and stunning custom-designed gold washbasin.

Nobu Hotel Shoreditch also features 7 unique suites overlooking the courtyard and pocket garden from their own private balconies. These dynamic spaces have been meticulously designed to embrace the property’s distinctive architecture with Japanese aesthetic subtleties.

Inspired by the iconic Nobu aesthetics, the 340m² restaurant space’s sleek wooden finish creates a cool and contemporary environment. Known around the world, Nobu cuisine is an innovative interpretation of Japanese, Peruvian and other South American elements pioneered by Chef Nobu Matsuhisa and influenced by his years of studying Japanese cuisine in Tokyo and his extensive travels. Overseen by Executive Chef Greg Seregi, supported by Head Sushi Chef Teruya Noriyoshi, the Nobu Shoreditch menu will feature many of Nobu’s timeless dishes bringing culinary innovation and fine dining to East London. Reached via a grand staircase and with space for 240 guests, Nobu Shoreditch is bathed in natural light from the five metre tall glass doors leading out to the charming Nobu Terrace.

Perfect for open air dining, the terrace, which can entertain up to 80 people, is split into four level terraces and available for private functions. Guests can also take advantage of the semi-private dining space overlooking the custom-built, open kitchen. Hosting up to 18 people, this is the perfect spot from which to experience the theatre of the Nobu kitchen. The separate Lobby Bar on the ground floor is also available to both guests and the public, offering an easy-going atmosphere radiating comfort and warmth.

The adaptable Kaijo meeting and event spaces at Nobu Hotel Shoreditch cater to a range of occasions, from family celebrations to business conferences. Boasting an abundance of natural light and a versatility that suits it to all needs, Kaijo can be used as one large space of 180m², accommodating 200 people for a cocktail reception or 120 for a banquet, or divided into six separate spaces as required.

Balance and mindfulness is the focus of the Nobu Hotel Shoreditch spa and wellness area, offering a range of relaxation, wellness and beauty services that rejuvenate, revitalise and reenergise. The 24-hour fitness centre offers state of the art facilities for guests, including a personal trainer on request, complimentary water and towels, a stretching area and weights.

Mobile Technology: Relentless Innovation

Technology has become a crucial component in attracting and retaining hotel guests, and the need to enhance a guest’s technology experience is driving a relentless pace of innovation. To meet and exceed guest expectations, 54% of hotels will spend more on technology in 2018, and mobile solutions in particular will top the list of capital investments. Many hotels are integrating mobile booking, mobile keys, mobile payments and mobile check-in into their operations. Other hotels are emphasizing the in-room experience, boosting bandwidth and upgrading flat screen TVs to more easily interface with guest mobile devices. And though not yet mainstream, there are many exciting technology developments on the near horizon. The Internet of Things (loT) is taking form in some places, and can be found in guest room control systems, voice activation systems, and in wearable sensors that can be used for access and payment options. Virtual reality headsets are available at some hotels so guests can enjoy virtual trips to exotic locations or if off-property, preview conference facilities and guest rooms. How long will it be before a hotel employs a fleet of robots for room service, or utilizes a hologram as a concierge, or installs gesture-controlled walls that feature interactive digital displays? Some hotels are already using augmented reality for translation services, or interactive wall maps, or even virtual décor. This pace of innovation is challenging property owners and brands to stay on top of the latest technology trends while still addressing current projects. The January Hotel Business Review will explore what some hotels are doing to maximize their opportunities in the mobile technology space.
