YOTEL was created by YO! Founder Simon Woodroffe OBE and Gerard Greene. Inspired by first class travel, they translated the language of luxury airline travel into a small but luxurious cabin.”
YOTEL’s ‘cabins’ are uncompromisingly designed around guests, taking the essential elements of luxury hotels in smaller, smart spaces. Standard features include luxury bedding, rejuvenating monsoon rain showers, relaxing mood lighting and YOTEL’s signature ‘techno wall’ with flat screen TVs, multi power points and easy connectivity.
Conceived for busy international travellers, YOTEL Airport hotels provide everything for a guest to relax, refresh, sleep and connect within global transportation hubs. Guests may choose exactly what time they would they like to check in and out, giving total flexibility to travelers in transit, staying the night before an early departure or to freshen up on arrival before a meeting in the city.
Typically located in easily accessible, fast upcoming urban centres, YOTEL City hotels deliver more luxury with larger cabins as well as a sense of community with spaces for work, exercise and social gatherings. Guests can enjoy free WiFi throughout the hotel and complimentary hot drinks.
YOTEL currently operates three airport hotels in London Gatwick, London Heathrow and Amsterdam Schiphol airports; and one city hotel in the heart of Manhattan, New York. In addition, new YOTEL Airport hotels are set to open at Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport (2016) and Singapore Changi Airport (2018) and YOTEL City hotels are under development in Williamsburg, Brooklyn (2017), Singapore Orchard Road (2017), Miami (2017) and San Francisco (2017).
YOTEL’s HQ is in London and has offices in Boston and Dubai. Its major partner and shareholder is IFA Hotels and Resorts KSCC based in Dubai.
