There are currently five hotels on the ExCeL site, with another one opening in October 2011, and at least one more planned before 2014.

  • The Ramada London Docklands is a four-star hotel with a large number of suites, close to the entrance for the International Convention Centre. 
  • The Premier Inn London Docklands is a budget hotel next door to the Ramada.
  • The Novotel London ExCeL is a four-star hotel near the west entrance of ExCeL, at the other end of the building from the International Convention Centre.
  • The Crowne Plaza London Docklands is another four-star hotel, slightly further from ExCeL's west entrance.
  • The Ibis London Docklands is a budget hotel next door to the Novotel.
  • The Aloft London Excel opens in October 2011, and is adjacent to the east entrance of ExCeL and the International Convention Centre.

These six hotels are shown on a campus map on ExCeL's own website.
There are a number of other budget hotels in the area, and we're investigating the use of student accommodation at the University of East London, about a mile and a half away on the Docklands Light Railway.
The Canary Wharf area, a couple of miles west of ExCeL on the Docklands Light Railway, has a number of hotels including a Marriott and a Four Seasons.
