Accommodation

Doubletree by Hilton London

The Doubletree is everything you would expect from a Hilton London Hotel, combining stylish comfort and a warm welcome with leading technology in each room. It is also in a prime location for those attending IMPA London and for those that want to make the most of their stay in England's capital.

Every room in the Doubletree has an iMac computer meaning guests can relax with a TV or a film in the evening, or catch up on work after a busy day networking. Complimentary WiFi comes as standard, while the hotel's popular Millbank Lounge, award-winning City Café and Skylounge provide the perfect backdrop to unwind with a drink after a busy day.

Situated in the heart of Westminster and within easy reach of the QEII Conference Centre, the Doubletree is also close to the Houses of Parliament, London's West End and the Square Mile, making it convenient for networking socials and entertaining clients in the evening. Slightly further afield but nonetheless in easy walking distance, the London Eye, Tate Gallery and Buckingham Palace are ideal hotspots for those wishing to see a little more of London during the event.

Its central location also makes the Doubletree easily accessible from London Gatwick and Heathrow airports for those travelling to IMPA London from overseas.

The Doubletree is slightly more expensive than the Copthorne Tara, though that is a reflection of its location, style and the services on offer. Those attending IMPA London are however offered preferential rates while staying there during the exhibition.

Copthorne Tara Hotel

The modern, four-star hotel is situated in a quiet corner of London's fashionable Kensington, and comes with a reputation for the highest standards of comfort and service. All rooms have TV facilities, 24-hour room service, telephone voicemail service and air conditioning facilities. The hotel is also a short underground train ride from the QEII Conference Centre, with total journey time from the Copthorne to St James' Park station in Westminster less than 15 minutes. The QEII Centre is two minutes from St James' Park.

The Copthorne Tara also comes with an added benefit that few hotels in the area can offer. It is extremely popular among IMPA London attendees, and as such provides not only a comfortable place to stay but also the chance to catch up with fellow IMPA London attendees after a busy day at the exhibition.

This year the secretariat has recognised the importance of the Copthorne Tara to IMPA London attendees by making special arrangements with the hotel. Those attending IMPA London, either as exhibitor, delegate or visitor will be offered preferential rates and will therefore be able to take advantage of all the Copthorne Tara has to offer at a discounted rate.

Booking Information

Single occupancy:  £150.00

Twin/Double occupancy: £160.00
