After what was, even by luxury hotel standards, an impressively long delay, the Lincoln Plaza London hotel has finally opened at Canary Wharf.

It is part of Hilton’s Curio Collection, which means that you can earn and spend Hilton Honors points here as well as getting your status benefits.  Curio is a group of high-quality independent hotels which use the Hilton ‘system’ to drive bookings but which operate at arms-length and are given more freedom to run as they see fit.  Looking at the pricing, it looks substantially more expensive than Hilton Canary Wharf.

Lincoln Plaza London hotel

To quote:

“The hotel echoes the sleek architectural cues of Canary Wharf, drawing inspiration from the area’s rich industrial heritage. In the lobby, guests are welcomed by polished concrete floors, a steel feature wall and steel-framed windows, allowing daylight to flood into the space. “

The dining options seem impressive.  These include:

Mr. Todiwala’s Kitchen, a pan-Indian restaurant from celebrated chef Cyrus Todiwala OBE DL

Food Store, a contemporary restaurant, bar and grocer where guests and locals can relax, dine and stock up on provisions

Jack Speak, a destination cocktail bar and terrace where “guests can choose from an extensive rum and gin selection in a setting that is a playful twist on a 19th century British Navy Officers’ Wardroom”.  This comes with an all-year heated outdoor terrace. 

There will be a pool, sauna and steam room but these will not open until April.

In terms of location, Lincoln Plaza is to the south of the main estate and just south of Marsh Wall and the existing Hilton Canary Wharf.  South Quay is the nearest DLR station.

Redemption rooms are 80,000 Hilton Honors points per night.  They still had availability for the London Marathon weekend when I checked yesterday.  You can find out more on this page of the Hilton website.
