Hub by Premier Inn is a new hotel concept set to open in London's Covent Garden in summer 2014. The concept, which Premier Inn is planning for three more central London locations by 2016, offers high-tech, space-efficient and low-cost rooms.
The rooms in Hub will measure just under 122 square feet, have a wardrobe, desk 40″ smart screen TV, en suite bathroom with power shower and free WiFi. The rooms will rent for about £100 ($156) per night weekdays. Customers will be able to check in online from a smartphone, then use their phones to control lights, temperature and TV programming. www.premierinn.com
