LARGEST HILTON OUTSIDE THE US MAINTAINS POSITION AS EUROPE’S LEADING CONFERENCE & EVENTS HOTEL WITH CREATIVE REFURBISHMENT
London Metropole, the largest Hilton outside of the US, is maintaining its position as
Europe's leading conference and events hotel with an impressive multimillion-pound refurbishment that will radically transform and upgrade the guest experience.
The renovation is due to be completed by summer 2021 and will provide
visitors with a completely new and upgraded stay. No element of the hotel will
be left unchanged.
The 1,096 guestrooms and suites have undergone a striking transformation,
beautifully designed with a contemporary and bold aesthetic that reflects
different London boroughs. The venue’s four restaurants and bars will be
relaunched with exciting new drinking and dining concepts, including an all-day British brasserie, serving locally sourced ingredients,
and a new suitably relaxed market-style dining outlet, that celebrates London’s
street food scene. The refurbishment will also see the opening of a
state-of-the-art 200sqm (2,153sqf) fitness studio.
renovations are being made to the hotel’s 35 event spaces and meeting rooms, including
two dedicated hybrid
meeting rooms and three
ballrooms, which total over 4,600sqm (49,500sqf) in size, from the 1,062 Square Metres (11,431sqf) Richmond Suite to the Kensington Suite, with its open private
foyer and space for up to 1,350 guests. Hilton London Metropole also operates Hilton EventReady with CleanStay, which ensures the hotel delivers event
experiences that are clean, flexible, safe and socially responsible.
The new, elevated aesthetic will take guests on an immersive
experience through the capital. The architecture, design, restaurants and bars showcase
purposeful acknowledgments to East, Central and West London’s heritage as the hotel tells the story of this ancient city with nods to iconic areas including
Borough Market, Covent Garden and towns on the Thames.
Sustainability is at the heart
of Hilton London Metropole and its refurbishment. From the team members’
uniforms, made from sustainable materials, such as recycled plastic, to the
green kitchens serving locally grown produce, the hotel has collaborated with a
wide range of businesses and manufacturers to create an ethical and
environmentally conscious space.
Guests staying in the Suites or Executive Rooms will enjoy complimentary
breakfast and access to the exclusive and contemporary Executive Lounge, which
has a dedicated arrivals area and check-in facilities. The lounge serves a
carefully curated food and drink offers throughout the day alongside monthly
tasting and live cooking experiences. When
booking their future stays, guests can also feel confident that their health
and wellbeing have been taken care of thanks to Hilton CleanStay, an industry-defining standard of cleanliness and
disinfection delivered in Hilton properties worldwide.
The hotel’s radical developments will retain Hilton London
Metropole’s position as the perfect choice for the business traveller, from its
central location in the heart of the city to its impeccable transport links,
seven different bedroom options and four suite categories to choose from, a
seamless check in process, a wide choice of food and drink dining experiences
and an impressive on-site fitness studio.
Remco Norden, Area General Manager says “Our
ambitious multimillion-pound renovation will maintain Hilton London Metropole
as Europe’s leading conference and events hotel. The refurbishment will radically
transform every element of the hotel, from our restaurants and bars to our
bedrooms, suites, and meeting and event spaces. It will elevate the guest
experience and continue to make us the venue of choice for business and leisure
travelers and corporate and private events of any scale.
“The refurbishment celebrates London and our hotel’s wonderful history.
Despite the challenges the industry has faced in 2020, our hotel has an
incredibly bright future and this renovation is our opportunity to invest in
