The new hotels are called Travelodge Plus and are described as “budget chic” with some seriously classy touches.
Rooms will be decorated in a “tranquillity zen” colour scheme, which is tones of beige, taupe and white, designed by a special “colour consultant” to aide peaceful sleep.
Beds will be king-sized and there will be blackout curtains and “bespoke pixel wall art”.
There will also be more expensive SuperRooms, which are premium economy standard.
They will gave Hansgrohe Raindance showers, Lavazza coffee pod machines in room and USB points throughout the room.
Rooms will cost between £5 and £10 more than your usual Travelodge room, which start at £35 per night.
The hotels will also have new Bar Cafes with space to work and relax.
Travelodge Plus will be rolled out with an investment of £10million at hotels in London, York, Brighton and Gatwick airport.
There will also be a brand new 395-room hotel built in London.
Peter Gowers, Travelodge Chief Executive said: “Britain is now a nation of budget travellers, with more of us choosing to stay in budget hotels than any other hotel type.
The launch of Travelodge Plus helps us offer that little bit more choice for those who want it, while staying true to our mission to be the favourite hotel for value.
“The hotel market is following the same path as airlines and retail.
“Budget hotels launched as niche offers but now dominate the market, with a wider customer base than ever.
“From business people more used to high-end hotels to those just getting away for a quick break, budget hotels now offer a wide range of travel choices to suit everyone.”
Sun Online Travel previously revealed Marriott's new Moxy hotels for millennials have king-size beds and "urban camping" in some rooms – a nice way of saying bunk beds.
