Dorsett City Hotel celebrates topping out ceremony


Dorsett Hospitality International and Willmott Dixon celebrated the milestone event of ‘topping out’ the Dorsett City Hotel on Tuesday. Guests attended an event to celebrate the team reaching the highest point of the new 13-storey £15 million hotel.

The new four-star business hotel oversailing Aldgate station designed by  Dexter Moren Associates, will host 270 guest rooms, two restaurants, a bar and fitness centre alongside 1600 sq. ft. of meeting and multi-purpose space.

Due to be completed this September, the shell and core contract being undertaken by Cobham-based contractor Willmott Dixon is progressing at speed.

John Connolly, head of UK development for Dorsett Hospitality International said: “We are thrilled to have reached this milestone and are very much looking forward to opening this landmark property – a key step for Dorsett Hotels & Resorts’ ongoing expansion into the UK following the successful launch of Dorsett Shepherds Bush in June 2014.”

Once waterproofed, the project will be handed over to the client for specialist contractors to complete the fit-out programme.
