Hilton’s largest hotel outside of the US will radically transform the guest experience with a multimillion pound renovation, featuring an immersive design that will take guests on a journey through the capital. 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 undergone a striking transformation, beautifully designed with a contemporary and bold aesthetic that reflects different London boroughs. Hilton London Metropole‘s unbeatable location, with four tube lines across the road, lends itself well to visitors wanting to truly experience London. The hotel’s range of bedrooms, including family rooms with two double beds as well as spacious suites, make it possible for families and groups to travel together. 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 venue’s four restaurants and bars will be relaunched with exciting new drinking and dining concepts. The new restaurant will host jaw-dropping breakfast buffets, featuring international breakfast options and live egg stations, before transforming into a beautiful British brasserie, serving international dishes infused with the best of British locally sourced ingredients. The hotel will also add a new relaxed market-style dining outlet that celebrates London’s street food scene. In addition, the refurbishment will see the opening of a state-of-the-art 200sqm (2,153sqf) fitness studio.
The hotel has embraced the latest in technology to ensure a seamless stay, from upgraded Wi-Fi to the introduction of Digital Key, which allows Hilton Honors members to check in and choose their room via their mobile device using the Hilton Honors app.
The renovation celebrates the best of the capital, with the new design weaving the city’s storied history into the hotel. Guests will experience engaging touchpoints from London’s rich heritage, its vibrant art, culture, music and diverse food scene throughout. The new, elevated aesthetic will take guests on an immersive experience through the capital. The architecture, design, restaurants and bars showcase purposeful acknowledgements 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 offering throughout the day including complimentary evening drinks, alongside monthly tasting and live cooking experiences. Executive Lounge guests will also benefit from a smart coffee solution. Touchless app technology allows guests to create their perfect cup of coffee, and will even remember it for their future stays.
These radical developments will retain Hilton London Metropole as the perfect choice for the leisure traveller, from its central location in the heart of the city to its impeccable transport links, modern and sleek bedrooms with a seamless check in process, wide choice of food and drink dining experiences and an impressive fitness space.
Our ambitious multimillion pound, 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 hotel of choice for leisure travellers.
The refurbishment celebrates London and our hotel’s wonderful history, with our immersive design aimed to take guests on a journey through the capital.
