English Premier League football club Tottenham Hotspur has appointed CBRE Hotels to help locate an operator for a 180-bedroom hotel at its new home stadium.

According to the Hospitality and Catering News website, the ‘upscale’ hotel will open in 2020 and feature a restaurant, rooftop bar, swimming pool and private members room.

The 23-story hotel, which will be located within the new stadium complex, will also serve as London’s third-largest conference, banqueting and events venue.

David Bailey of CBRE Hotels said: “This is an iconic project in what will be a world class sports and entertainment venue. Such a prestigious development presents a unique opportunity for an hotelier that can match Tottenham Hotspur’s vision and ambition for this project.”

The new stadium is scheduled to be ready in time for the 2018-19 season.

Donna-Maria Cullen, executive director at Tottenham, added: “Since embarking on this exciting journey, 1,000 new jobs in the construction, IT, hospitality, retail and sports industries have been created, singlehandedly spearheading the regeneration of Tottenham.

“Once complete our stunning new stadium, hotel and the wider scheme will deliver significant community benefits and an unrivalled fan experience – creating a world-class sports and entertainment destination – and in our birthplace of Tottenham.”
