More than 120,000 hotel room nights were released by the organizers of the London 2012 Olympics as announced on a press release on their official website on Sunday, January 29, 2012.

According to the press release, the London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games (LOCOG) has confirmed the release of about 20% of hotel room nights it had reserved in London. The more than 120,000 hotel room nights, which are from more than 200 hotels, are said to be available now to visitors to London this summer.

“The hotel industry in London got behind the bid to stage the Games in the most extraordinary way and that support helped us across the line. We always promised that we would not hold on to hotel rooms we didn’t need but return them to the individual hotels at the beginning of 2012. We are now doing this and I hope that this enables the hotels to continue with their planning for this summer as we all work together to stage a spectacular Games,” LOCOG CEO Paul Deighton was quoted saying in the press release.

“We are delighted that LOCOG is releasing hotel stock back into the market place, and London deliver on its promise to make these ‘everyone’s Games’. We look forward working with our hotel partners in the capital to ensure that domestic and international visitors enjoy being in the best big city on earth at this magical time,” Gordon Innes, CEO of London & Partners reportedly said.
