Wimbledon
While tea and gin are quintessentially British, so is Wimbledon, the iconic Tennis tournament where an estimated 166,000 portions of strawberries are served. At citizenM Tower of London, you can sip a refreshing Pimms and Tea Syrup cocktail, topped off with a refreshing serve of Sparkling Tea. Chin chin.

Q Gardens
Taking inspiration from one of London’s most beautiful gardens situated 14 miles down the Thames from where you’re sitting. This elegant serve is all things floral and spring-like. Served with a seasonal fresh edible flower.

Chelsea Flower Show
Inspired directly by the stunning floral displays of Chelsea Flower Show, this is one of our most popular drinks. Served warm in a glass teapot, you can take a moment whilst the flowering tea unfurls before your eyes. Think what Monty Don might choose.

The London Eye
What’s higher than the 7th Floor cloudM? The answer is probably a lot of things but, this cocktail served bright blue, garnished with fluffy candy floss and served in a coupe is reminiscent of being sky high on the London Eye.

The Thames Trader
With the ingredients of spices, chocolate, and mangoes, the inspiration for this cocktail came directly from the Thames River and the old stories of how the clippers used to bring in exotic products from all over the world. This delicately spiced cocktail is paired perfectly with a corner chair view of the Thames.

About citizenM

citizenM was launched in 2008 with a purpose – to disrupt the traditional, stale hotel industry. Rattan Chadha – the founder of the global fashion brand Mexx – was inspired by his employees to create a hotel for today’s frequent travellers, giving them everything they need and nothing they don’t. This means central locations in the world’s most exciting cities, but at an affordable price. Not just a place to sleep, but somewhere to work, relax and play – just like home. Somewhere with superfast free Wi-Fi, tech that makes life easy, and world-class art that isn’t ‘hotel art’. A room with an ultra-comfortable XL bed to crash in, and a powerful rain shower to wake-up in. Rattan Chadha called this ‘affordable luxury for the people’.

The first citizenM opened at Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport in 2008. In May 2022, citizenM’s portfolio has 25 hotels in 16 exciting cities: London, Glasgow, Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Paris, Copenhagen, Zurich, Geneva, New York, Los Angeles, Boston, Seattle, San Francisco, Washington DC, Taipei and Kuala Lumpur.

Additional perks include: free late check-out and a free upgrade to a premium view room (both are subject to availability), a ‘first in queue’ chat service, early access to discounts, and members-only events. Superfast free Wi-Fi is available at all hotels – plus, guests can use the free citizenM app to check in, create a room key and much more.

The cost of the membership is recouped within two nights. Billing is monthly (not yearly) at a fixed low rate (only ​ $12 / €10 / £9 a month), and sign-up is for one year.

The first citizenM opened at Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport in 2008. In 2020, citizenM’s portfolio has 21 hotels in 14 exciting cities: London, Glasgow, Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Paris, Copenhagen, Zurich, Geneva, New York, Boston, Seattle, Washington DC, Taipei and Kuala Lumpur. 

In summer 2020, citizenM launched an app that’s much more than a room reservation tool. The app enables fully contactless stays (checking in, opening doors, adjusting room ambiance, paying for purchases – all via the guest’s own smartphone), and adds dozens of local perks (like discounts on bike rentals and food), tailored experiences, collectable badges and city guides. The app and contactless journey is the first of its kind in the world and was awarded winner of the ‘contactless solution’ category in the Skift 2020 IDEA Awards. The app is a natural continuation of citizenM’s tech-forward approach – the brand has always had one-minute self-check-in kiosks (instead of traditional reception desks), iPad room controls (in addition to wall switches), and superfast free Wi-Fi (everywhere) as part of its unique guest experience.

citizenM intends to keep growing as a fully integrated owner-operator in selected gateway cities around the world. Its unique value proposition, delivering a high profitability per square metre, allows the brand to develop hotels on prime locations in cities with the highest barriers to entry. citizenM can acquire development sites and turnkey delivered hotels and is open to joint ventures on individual projects. citizenM considers new-build developments, office conversions, components of mixed-use schemes or conversions of existing hotels. The company will also selectively consider asset-light transactions.
