There is a healthy range of design hotels in Essex, aimed at everyone from families to business travellers.

Harlow is a popular destination for both businessmen and those taking a break with their family. Built to ease overcrowding in London, it has blossomed into a thriving and busy town, packed with cultural attractions and plenty of amenities for business folk. Harlow boasts the United Kingdom's first pedestrian precinct, has one of the most extensive cycling routes in Britain and was the birthplace of former Spice Girl, Victoria Beckham. To cater for the wide variety of visitors, it has a good selection of design hotels up its sleeve.

Design Hotels for Business

The Holiday Inn Express Harlow is an ideal hotel for business travellers and for sightseers who want to explore what Harlow has to offer. Just half an hour's drive from Stansted Airport, 20 minutes' walk from Harlow Town Station and with the local bus station in spitting distance, it's eminently accessible. For businessmen, the hotel is close to conference venues, such as the Harlow Enterprise Hub. However, there are also on-site conference facilities including three contemporary meeting rooms and audio-visual equipment.

Design Hotels for Pleasure

For sightseers, the Holiday Inn Express Harlow is ideally situated to make exploring Harlow as easy as possible. Harlow's prestigious Civic Centre is just a short walk away, as is the Broadwalk Shopping Centre. For those who want to keep up with their exercise regimes, the Harlow Leisurezone is nearby. If you've brought the car, you'll find plenty of family-friendly attractions just half an hour's drive away, including Hertford Castle and Broxbourne Paradise Wildlife Park.
