Hilton Hotels & Resorts Set to Unveil Landmark Hotel in Wembley
Hilton Worldwide soon to open doors of iconic hotel that’s in a different league
June 14, 2012
LONDON - With London in the global spotlight this summer, Hilton Hotels & Resorts, the flagship brand of Hilton Worldwide, prepares to open its latest landmark property, Hilton London Wembley.
Situated directly opposite Wembley Stadium - the second biggest sporting venue outside of the Olympic Park - and next to Wembley Arena, the hotel opening marks a major milestone in the transformation of Wembley City, which aims to turn the area into one of the most thriving parts of the capital and a beacon of sporting, entertainment and architectural excellence.
The new visually stunning 281,650 sq ft, 361-room Hilton London Wembley boasts a number of leading features including 18 suites, a 660-capacity ballroom, 10 state-of-the-art meeting rooms with a Business Centre and boardroom, an Executive Lounge, 200 parking spaces and a LivingWell Health Club with a 12 metre pool, sauna, steam room, whirlpool and 24 hour gym for residents.
The hotel will also offer a spectacular roof bar Sky Bar 9 with space for 150 people through private functions. It is situated on the ninth floor of the hotel with an outdoor roof terrace and views over Wembley Arena and Wembley Way. The hotel will also see a restaurant, aptly named The Association, which can seat up to 280 guests which will feature a modern-British menu.
Adjacent to the Stadium, a new 280,000 sq ft retail destination - The London Designer Outlet - is under development and will add a fresh dimension to Wembley City, bringing high street, designer brands and dynamic restaurant and leisure operators to the heart of the regeneration scheme.
John Rogers, vice president operation UK, Hilton Worldwide, said, "Hilton London Wembley is a landmark hotel at the heart of the revitalisation of Wembley which will play a pivotal role in turning the area into a leisure destination of choice. This latest London opening for Hilton Worldwide will increase our presence to more than 30 hotels across the capital and provide a unique and high quality Hilton experience, setting the tone for the future of Wembley."
Jack Nicholas, general manager, Hilton London Wembley, said, "This is not only a significant hotel for the area of Wembley, which will attract millions of visitors from across the country and beyond but also fantastic gateway to the rest of London. With the West End less than 10 minutes away we anticipate a new breed of savvy guest looking to make the most of how easy it is to get to Wembley, the value against some London hotels and it's proximity to the rest of the metropolitan area.
"Further, Hilton London Wembley will be a key player in attracting back the much needed conference and events market to the area. With ample facilities to host events and meetings on any scale, Wembley is an attractive destination for business travellers, which is a hub for sport, comedy and music."
The regeneration of Wembley is central to Brent Council's aspirations for the borough. Quintain is responsible for London at Wembley regeneration scheme and is transforming 85 acres of former exhibitions lands around Wembley Stadium to create a retail and leisure destination which will deliver people, businesses and economic growth to the heart of Wembley. The main contractor is John Sisk with The Manser Practice as the architect and interior designer for the hotel.
The hotel is only minutes from London's city centre theatre district in the West End and, with its 200 car park spaces on site, is the ideal point to explore greater London and its surroundings such as Windsor Castle, the races at Ascot, a behind the scenes tour of Harry Potter at the Warner Bros. Studio in Watford and historic Oxford. Travellers can book a room and learn more about Hilton London Wembley by visiting www.londonwembley.hilton.com.
