BRIGHTON, UK - Hilton Brighton Metropole today unveiled plans for a major £3.75 million renovation, which will see the landmark building transformed this year with refurbished guest rooms, meeting rooms and a brand new restaurant and spa. The announcement marks the start of an exciting year for the hotel which celebrates its 125th anniversary in the spring.

The hotel, which sits on Brighton's seafront, is set to refurbish 185 of its 340 guest rooms (including four suites), to offer visitors Victorian elegance with modern convenience. The ensuite rooms, along with some communal guest areas, will be transformed into comfortable, stylish spaces which effortlessly capture the Arts and Crafts movement, with historical styling alongside feature artwork paying homage to William Morris.

From February, the rooms will be redesigned in calming, harmonious tones complemented by highly functional, beautiful lighting. Guests will be able to refresh and revitalise themselves in renovated bathrooms, featuring a large walk-in shower and new tiling throughout.

Sascha Koehler, general manager, Hilton Brighton Metropole, said, "We are thrilled not only to be unveiling our renovation plans for the guest rooms but also to be sharing our plans to open The Salt Room restaurant later this month. The Salt Room will be a relaxed, informal,urban dining retreat with covered terrace seating and ocean views. The contemporary dining experience is the perfect complement to its sister restaurant, The Coal Shed, and it will showcase the best of British food - with a particular focus on British fish and crustaceans cooked over a real charcoal oven.

"Our spa is also undergoing a radical transformation and will be rebranded as 'Schmoo by the Sea', with an opening planned for early February, just in time for Valentine's Day indulgence."

Schmoo by the Sea will have a relaxed sociable feel where guests can enjoy a bespoke range of treatments. The spa will include six treatment rooms, a sociable manicure and pedicure zone, a relaxation zone and a welcoming reception and shop area, where guests can purchase their own organic Schmoo skincare products, developed from high quality ingredients based around fruit extracts.

In addition to the redesigned guest rooms and the new restaurant and spa, Hilton Brighton Metropole recently renovated several banqueting and meeting rooms, providing improved facilities for business events, meetings and weddings.

Hilton Brighton Metropole will remain open to guests throughout the renovation work. To find out more, contact the hotel on telephone +44 1273 775432 or visit www.hilton.com/brightonmet
