Cycas Hospitality is founded by
John Wagner and Eduard Elias
Gold Medal Standard
When the 2012 London Olympics showed the world what a fantastic show the UK could put on, Cycas played a part in rolling out the welcome mat.
Cycas worked with Westfield to develop not one but two hotels within the Stratford Shopping Centre, which is now at the heart of what has become the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, funded via a joint venture with Patron Capital.
It was the kind of complex project that we relish. A 162 room Staybridge Suites and a 188 room Holiday Inn Hotel, constructed on top of an existing shopping centre. And just because we didn’t think that was quite tricky enough, the hotels had to be open and delivering the Cycas experience a few weeks before the 2012 London Olympics opening ceremony.
Tight budgets and strict timetables are two things which Cycas actively enjoy, because we’re funny like that. Throughout construction we used our experience, know-how and determination to meet both criteria, delivering both hotels two months before the original opening date and below budget.
If you want to know how good a job Cycas did, just ask Westfield Construction and Westfield Centre management. They’ll provide glowing references covering the before, during and after of our time working together. You’ve probably noticed we’re quite keen on blowing our own trumpet, but it’s even more impressive when other people blow it for us.
How good were the hotels? Good enough to be the main 2012 Olympic headquarters for IHG, the British Swimming team and the Paralympics Committee.
Proof of the great job we did? After the hotels were sold in December 2012, the new owners retained Cycas as managers. The managers of the hotels have since contracted us to operate 3 more of their hotels After all, you don’t mess with a winning formula.
