Pan Pacific London pushes opening date to early 2021

Pan Pacific

Pan Pacific London is to now open in early 2021, pushing back its original launch date of the end of this year due to the ongoing challenges surrounding Covid-19.

Located‌ ‌in‌ ‌a‌ ‌mixed-use‌ ‌development‌ ‌at‌ ‌One‌ ‌Bishopsgate‌ ‌Plaza, ‌the‌ ‌City’s‌ ‌new‌ ‌landmark‌ ‌tower, ‌the‌ ‌hotel‌ ‌is‌ ‌currently‌ ‌under‌ ‌construction‌. Originally scheduled to open in Q4 2020, the 237-bedroom hotel will now launch next year as a ‘realistic timeframe’ for opening.

Anne Golden, general manager at Pan Pacific London, comments, “The COVID-19 pandemic has brought the world of travel and hospitality to an abrupt standstill. Every opening is a challenge and as we ride through COVID-19, this is certainly a new one we’re facing.  Gradually, and in line with directives from local authorities, construction operations are now continuing on site and early 2021 is a realistic timeframe for opening. Despite the delay, the hotel is well advanced and will grow into a formidable hospitality player in the UK.”
