ART’OTEL LONDON BATTERSEA POWER STATION, THE CITY’S MOST ANTICIPATED HOTEL OPENING OF THE YEAR, HAS ANNOUNCED THE APPOINTMENT OF JENNIFER MCCABE AS GENERAL MANAGER, WITH THE TASK OF OVERSEEING THE OPERATIONS OF THE BRANDS DEBUT IN THE UK
Jennifer’s 15 years of experience in premium hotel management has been developed at the likes of Le Monde in Edinburgh as well as The Firmdale Group’s Soho, Covent Garden, Knightsbridge, and Charlotte Street Hotels and most recently, Holmes Hotel London.
Renowned for her passionate leadership and innovative approach to guest services, her most recent position as General Manager of Marylebone’s Holmes Hotel between 2019 and 2022 saw her oversee a full strategic repositioning of the hotel into a luxury and lifestyle brand, resulting in it being awarded a World Luxury Hotel Award for the Best Heritage Hotel.
“art’otel is one of Europe’s most unique and inspiring hotel brands, and I can’t wait to bring its creative spirit to London’s iconic Battersea Power Station” says McCabe. “As a location that has inspired creativity for decades, art’otel’s new vibrant energy will play a key part in the next chapter for Battersea Power Station. The hotel will be a space for endless creative inspiration and we can’t wait to welcome our first guests.”
art’otel, set to open later this year, will be located within Battersea Roof Gardens, a new building designed by Foster + Partners forming a key part of Electric Boulevard, a collection of buildings comprising homes, offices and a new pedestrianised high street which sits to the south of the iconic Power Station. The 164-bedroom hotel will feature ‘JOIA’ – a new skyline destination restaurant and bar, rooftop swimming pool, as well as a gym, spa, event facilities, a Grand Café and Art Gallery. Progress on the hotel’s construction is nearing completion, with the guest rooms, bar and restaurant now being fitted out.
Opening to the public in Autumn 2022, Battersea Power Station will be home to 254 residential apartments, over 100 retail shops, restaurants and cafés, including a unique 20,000 sq ft food hall concept, offices, event spaces and a chimney lift experience which will transport visitors 109m up to the top of the Power Station’s northwest chimney, offering stunning 360° views of London.
With the Northern Line extended to give this new riverside neighbourhood its very own Zone 1 London Underground station, Battersea Power Station is now within 15 minutes of the West End and the City and is expected to draw visitors from across the capital and the globe, becoming one of London’s most visited destinations, boosting the local economy and creating over 17,000 jobs.

About Battersea Power Station
Battersea Power Station is one of central London’s largest, most visionary and eagerly anticipated new riverside neighbourhoods. The £9bn regeneration project is delivering a vibrant, mixed-use destination offering a community of homes, shops, restaurants, offices, culture and leisure venues, as well as 19 acres of public space, all serviced by an extension to the London Underground Northern Line.
The Battersea Power Station project covers 42 acres and includes 3.5m sq ft of mixed commercial space, together with 4,239 new homes.
The successful regeneration of Battersea Power Station is creating 20,000 new jobs, generating long term career opportunities for local residents. A new NHS medical facility is also being built.
The Grade II* listed Power Station, the second phase of the development, opens to the public from this Autumn, housing over 100 shops, restaurants and cafes, events venues, a unique chimney lift experience offering 360-degree panoramic views of London’s skyline, new office space and 254 new residential apartments. The first residents moved into the Power Station in 2021.
Circus West Village, the first chapter of the regeneration of Battersea Power Station, is already a thriving riverside destination and home to over 1,800 people. Offering an eclectic mix of independent and design-led bars, restaurants, shops, fitness and wellbeing facilities, a cinema, a theatre and an ongoing events programme, this new neighbourhood welcomes over three million people on average per year.
The third phase comprises Prospect Place and Battersea Roof Gardens which together form Electric Boulevard, London’s newest high street. Prospect Place is the first residential project of globally renowned architectural practice Gehry Partners and Battersea Roof Gardens, designed by Foster + Partners, will house new residences, terraced retail and leisure offerings, and a 164-room art’otel, the brand’s first to open in London.
With the recently opened Zone 1 Battersea Power Station Underground station on the Northern Line Extension, the development is only a 15 minute journey from the West End and the City. It also has its very own Uber Boat by Thames Clippers pier and is a 15 minute journey from Embankment, 20 minutes from Blackfriars, 30 minutes from Putney and 40 minutes from Canary Wharf. Battersea Power Station is easily accessible by bus, bike, car and train too.
The wider Battersea Power Station development is owned by a consortium of Malaysian investors comprising Sime Darby Property (40%), S P Setia (40%) and The Employees’ Provident Fund (20%), with the commercial assets within the Power Station building now being directly owned by Permodalan Nasional Berhad (PNB) and EPF. Management of the development is being undertaken by the British-based Battersea Power Station Development Company

The Best Rates Guarantee does not apply to the following rate types:
- Qualified discount rates available to members of special programs or associations (i.e. AAA, senior, government, loyalty, employee discounts);
- Special “exclusive offers” or “online coupons” or email solicitations not intended for the general public;
- Rates not publicly available, such as negotiated Group or Corporate rates; including group extend-the-stay rates;
- Package rates that include the room and other components such as parking, travel, car rental, entertainment, or meals excluding breakfast;
- Rates found on opaque, bidding, or auction sites where the hotel brand, the specific hotel, the hotel location or price is not known until booking is finalized. Examples of these types of sites include but are not limited to Priceline and Hotwire;
- Any other unpublished or private rates or sites requiring login.
Comparison Rates: The Comparison Rate must be found on a website available to be booked by the general public other than Radissonhotels.com within 24 hours of booking your hotel room on Radissonhotels.com and at least 48 hours prior to midnight hotel local time of your arrival date.
The Comparison Rate must be for the same hotel, same reservation date(s), same room type (i.e. room size and amenities), same number of guests, same currency as the Radissonhotels.com confirmation email, and the same advance payment and refund policies and restrictions must apply.
The Comparison Rate must still be available at the time Customer Care validates the claim.
The rates will be compared net of any taxes, gratuities, or any other fees associated with the room rate; however, if the Radissonhotels.com rate has taxes included, we will verify that the total cost of your Comparison Rate is lower so that prices are compared on a relative basis. Rate disparities solely attributable to rounding, fluctuations and/or difference in currency exchange rates are excluded from the Best Rates Guarantee. Claims will be denied when the difference between the Comparison Rate and the rate on Radissonhotels.com is less than 1USD, 1EUR or 1GBP or equivalent in the local currency of the hotel.
When a claim covers a stay for multiple, consecutive nights, the rates will be reviewed based on the average over the entire stay (the total consecutive nights stayed by the same guest or guests in the same hotel, regardless of the number of check-ins or check-outs or separate reservations). Comparison Rates applicable to only a portion of the reservation will not be honored.
If your reservation meets these criteria, let us know by submitting the claim form.
Customer Care will verify the rate meets all of these Best Rates Guarantee terms and conditions and contact you via email. Once confirmed, we will match the lower rate and discount that rate by an additional 25%. For prepaid bookings, the difference will be refunded on the applicable credit card by the hotel. You may only submit one claim for each stay.
If a new reservation confirmation number is provided for the new rate, it must be presented at the hotel at the time of check-in.
The Best Rates Guarantee is void where prohibited by law.
We reserve the right to change or discontinue the Best Rates Guarantee at any time without prior notice.
