A LONDON hotel has been renamed ‘Cor-Inn-nation’ – in honour of King Charles’ big day.
Previously known as Premier Inn London Bank, on St Mary-at-Hill, the building features new signage to greet guests arriving for the special occasion.
The re-brand will be in situ throughout the coronation weekend, launched with its own guard at the entrance.
It comes after research by the hotel chain found 17 per cent of Brits are planning to head down to the capital for the coronation.
Simon Ewins, managing director at Premier Inn, said: “Millions of people across the nation will be celebrating the coronation, with many descending on the capital to celebrate this momentous day in person.
“It promises to be one of the city’s biggest days of the year, and we wanted to mark the occasion in a special way by re-naming one of our central London hotels for the special event.”
“As some of our hotels near the coronation route are selling out in minutes and many of our hotels expected to be really popular, we’re looking forward to welcoming lots of well-wishers to our venues in the capital over the weekend.”
The survey of 2,000 adults also found they are willing to travel an average of more than 100 miles to see the big moment.
While 18 per cent would even consider camping out in the big city to get the best spot for the shindig.
More than one in five (21 per cent) have travelled to London for a royal event in the past, including Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations in 2012, or the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton the year before.
And 20 per cent made the trip to mark Queen Elizabeth II’s 90th birthday celebrations in 2016.
As for the coronation, 41 per cent of those who plan to travel say it’s a great opportunity for the country to come together.
With 39 per cent wanting to be part of what promises to be an historic occasion, while 34 per cent think it will just be a fun day out.
Although 29 per cent will be keeping their eyes open in case they get to meet someone famous, or another royal.
And 26 per cent think they might get a chance to appear on TV, according to the OnePoll.com figures.
It also emerged 32 per cent of all adults polled said the extra bank holiday is what they’re looking forward to most about the celebrations.
Nearly one in 10 (nine per cent) will be going to a street party, and 14 per cent will use it as an opportunity to spend time with family.
Simon Ewins added: “We hope we’ve done our bit to help put the nation in a good mood.”
