Hilton London Metropole, the largest Hilton outside of the US, has announced a multimillion-pound refurbishment that will “radically” transform and upgrade the site and guest experience.
The renovation is due to be completed by summer 2021 and will provide visitors with a “completely new and upgraded stay”.
The 1,096 guestrooms and suites have all been renovated, designed with a contemporary and bold aesthetic that reflects different London boroughs. The venue’s four restaurants and bars will also be relaunched with new drinking and dining concepts, including an all-day British brasserie serving locally sourced ingredients, and a 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, while extensive renovations are being made to the hotel’s 35 event spaces and meeting rooms, including two dedicated hybrid meeting rooms and three ballrooms.
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 hotel has also introduced upgraded Wi-Fi as well as a new Digital Key, which allows Hilton Honors members to check in and choose their room using their smartphone via the Hilton Honors app.
Remco Norden, area general manager said: “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 travellers 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 it.”
