On July 7th 2006 the hotel opened a second reception which is actually just around the corner to the main building, on the opposite side of the road, and is at 166 High Holborn (on the corner with Museum Street). This second building was actually the former Travelodge London High Holborn. This second building at the time was far newer and more modern and contemporary in style.
