“It is clear that the outer London Boroughs have a lack of good quality, affordable hotel accommodation. Many have large employment clusters and impressive regeneration proposals yet have an undersupply of hotel rooms.
“Our target locations in Brent are all suitable for a Travelodge hotel and we hope to be able to make further announcements about specific sites soon.”
The move comes as part of Travelodge’s plans to build an additional 145 hotels across London to add to the 59 already open.
