Montcalm unveils silicon implant for East London techies


Described by its owners as the first high-end hotel in ‘Tech City’ East London, M by Montcalm is looking to cement its status on the city’s hotel scene following its official launch.

The area, encompassing Shoreditch, Hoxton and Islington, has boomed since the launch of the Government’s ‘East London Tech City’ initiative and M by Montcalm, which is a three-minute walk from Silicone Roundabout, aims to appeal to movers and shakers in the hi-tech industries attracted to the area.

Inspired by the location and its locals, the hotel incorporates art, music, design and technology, embracing local business and customs.

The boutique features architecture from RIBA award winning architects Michael Squire with a 17th floor restaurant offering views across London and is staffed by chefs from Michelin-starred kitchens and offers guests a luxury spa with large swimming pool and fitness suite.

The 18 storey building’s futuristic façade was heavily influenced by the work of ‘Op-Art’ pioneer Bridget Riley, particularly ‘Nataraja’ (1993), now part of the Tate Collection.

The building is one of the first in the world to absorb a horizontal transom on the façade, thus preserving the purity of the original architectural concept and vision.

There are 269 stylish rooms in four categories: Deluxe, Club, Junior Suite and Suite complete with luxury amenities from Elemis and Hermès, rain showers, Bose speakers and easy to use technology that enables guests to create their own environment; they can even select the room aroma.

M by Montcalm also offers the M Club for VIP guests – a stylish 16th floor exclusive club to hold meetings, work and relax in, with an food and drink menu from the 17th floor restaurant.

There are also light and spacious conference and meeting facilities with the capacity for a 200 person reception.

The soft launch rate for M by Montcalm is from £180 + VAT weekdays and £150 + VAT for weekends (room only).
