Hilton London Metropole unveils largest ‘Double-Double’ rooms in London
May 17, 2012
LONDON - Hilton London Metropole conference hotel, situated only 20 minutes from Heathrow Airport via the Heathrow Express at Paddington Station, has undergone a £2.3 million complete transformation of the bedrooms in its Conference Wing. The renovation is part of a three-year, $3 billion plan of significant property renovations currently underway across the global portfolio of Hilton Hotels & Resorts, the flagship brand of Hilton Worldwide.
A major renovation programme which offers a fully completed Conference Wing, with 354 of the largest ‘Double-Double’ rooms in London, providing the complete package for conference and event organisers.
Hilton London Metropole is the largest conference hotel in the U.K. and one of the largest in Europe, with two large conference rooms each with the capacity to hold 1,500 people. The conference facilities are also located in the conference wing, allowing for both the event and accommodation to be taken care of within the same location.
Avner On, general manager, Hilton London Metropole, said, “With space at a premium in the Capital, Hilton London Metropole prides itself on offering a room that rivals other London hotels by providing comfort, style and much needed additional square footage. The refurbishment of our Superior rooms marks the next stage in Hilton London Metropole’s continued refurbishment programme and the efforts to offer our meeting and conference delegates the best possible experience when staying with us.”
The Superior room category has been designed with both business traveller and families in mind. A flexible working area, separate relaxation corner, chaise lounge and coffee table, make for the perfect balance of work and rest space. The Superior Family room includes two queen beds, a sofa bed and two 32-inch LCD TV’s, allowing parents to watch news or movies on-demand whilst the kids stay entertained with their favourite shows at the other end of the room.
The Superior rooms have been transformed with an injection of stylish soft furnishings and modern design. The incorporation of rich plums and sage green tones create a calming atmosphere suitable for work or relaxation. Contemporary dark wood furnishings complement the autumnal tones and the off-white walls provide a neutral backdrop to set off the room, whilst the huge windows frame the room, let in tonnes of natural light and offer spectacular views of the Capital.
Hilton London Metropole has 1,054 bedrooms in total and is conveniently located outside of the congestion charge zone but only 10 minute’s walk to London’s West End. The hotel boasts two restaurants, a sports bar and a café, including Fiamma, which offers international cuisine with a Mediterranean flavour and Minako which combines breathtaking views from its 23rd floor location and an Asian fusion menu.
The Superior rooms refurbishment is part of an ongoing programme of upgrades at the hotel that will be continuing throughout 2012 and into 2013.
