Matching the carpet at Ibis Styles opening in Ealing

Accor hotels has done it again! They are expanding rapidly and focusing more on accessible and affordable rooms. The brand new Ibis Styles hotel I got to visit is located in the heart of Ealing, near Ealing Broadway which is on Central Line and will also be one of the many stations on the Crossrail.

On Thursday last week me and G went to the official launch event which had a film theme complete with a red carpet, cocktails named after classics and photographers everywhere.

We got some lovely presents on arrival! Is it sad that I got mostly excited about the tote bag? 
I use them all the time!

After doing some quick diy on my jumpsuit (had to cut the legs off a bit.. petite problems!) we went downstairs for an evening of cocktails, canap├ęs and a bit of singing..

I felt slightly silly leaving the hotel only to go back in via the red carpet.. anything for a good instagram picture ;)

We had quite a few of these and mingled with other bloggers, hotel professionals and the lovely Social Media agency that invited me.
I'm also quite convinced we ate (and enjoyed the food) more than anyone as the chef came out and handed us bowls of food instead of nibbles? Oops!

To end the evening the staff at Ibis surprised the General Manager Dominic with a cake, gifts and singing - it was super lovely being a small part of it!
