The recently signed agreement with Dora Hotel Company and The Cribbage Group advances the expansion of Hard Rock Hotels' North American portfolio.

In collaboration with the managing partners of Dora Hotel Company and The Cribbage Group, Hard Rock will transform the historic site of the former Kellogg's Canada Factory into a place for the brand to bring music and entertainment offerings to the region. Ontario's Hard Rock Hotel London will complement existing tourism activities in the area and create a variety of educational, cultural and historical experiences for guests of all ages.

Located at 100 Kellogg Lane, the future 353-room hotel will be built in two phases, with an initial opening of 163 rooms scheduled for late 2022 and completion of the site in 2025. Incorporating the historical aspects of the site, the design will include industrial elements that will preserve the original atmosphere and charm of the site. This includes the original courtyard, which is enhanced by a building developed by the architect Albert Khan.

Todd Hricko, Hard Rock International Hotel Development's Vice President :

We are delighted to partner with the Dora Hotel Company and The Cribbage Group on this project, which brings the world-class entertainment experiences of Hard Rock to an already vibrant area of Ontario. This property will offer a multitude of local attractions and activities on the property that will create memories for all who visit.

Tim Dora, Dora Hotel Company's President :

The signing of the agreement to create the Hard Rock Hotel London, Ontario, is the beginning of what is sure to be an extraordinary partnership between The Dora Hotel Company, Hard Rock International, The Cribbage Group and the City of London. There is no doubt that this hotel will be a game-changer for Canadians and people who come to Ontario from around the world to experience the Hard Rock Hotel.

The hotel will feature Hard Rock features such as The Sound of Your Stay, a three-part package that allows guests to have fun with a Crosley vinyl player delivered to their door, a Heritage guitar with amp and headphones for jam sessions, and a selection of prepared playlists that guests can stream or download. Other Hard Rock amenities include Body Rock Fitness, a fitness center, and the Rock Spa, which welcomes guests to relax.
