Mint Hotel will open a second London property of 583 rooms at the Tower of London, in Pepys Street, on December 20 and is expanding overseas for the first time with a new hotel of 553 rooms opening in Amsterdam in Spring 2011.
The City Inn in Brindley Place will now be known as the Mint Hotel.
Sandy Orr, Executive Chairman and Co-founder Mint Hotel commented: “Our business was created from scratch, it was designed to be a forward-looking, innovative city centre hotel brand.
"Now, with the opening of two new world-class hotels in the most exceptional locations in the City of London and Amsterdam we recognised it was time to give our company the branding it deserved.”
David Orr, Chief Executive and Co-founder added: “We are delighted to rebrand as Mint Hotel in Bristol, Glasgow, Birmingham, London (Westminster), Manchester and Leeds at the same time as unveiling our exceptional new properties at the Tower of London before Christmas and in Amsterdam in the Spring."
