Hilton has announced plans to open a hotel in the Surrey town of Woking, set to launch early 2021.
Located within walking distance of Woking train station, the 196-room hotel will be housed within the town’s new Victoria Square retail and residential development, which plans to deliver more than 14,500 sqm of retail floorspace, 390 residential apartments, a medical centre, car parking and two new public plazas by 2020.
Commenting on the new opening Patrick Fitzgibbon, senior vice president of development EMEA Hilton:
“Woking is undergoing a major transformation, with an estimated £500 million funds committed in the next five years. This ambitious regeneration – together with the town’s fantastic connectivity to central London and its main airports – makes it a prestigious location in which to introduce our flagship brand.”
The hotel will feature a lobby bar, all-day dining restaurant, a bar, and an on-site coffee shop. For corporate events and gatherings, the hotel will have over 700 square metres of function and meeting space, including a 540 sqm ballroom for up to 500 guests. There will also be an Executive Lounge and business centre.
Joining the Doubletree by Hilton Woking, the Hilton Woking will be located at the junction of Victoria Way and Church Street West. Hilton Hotels and Resorts has nearly 60 properties under development across Europe, Middle East and Africa, adding destinations such as Saint Petersburg, Tashkent, Cabo Verde, Tanger, Riyadh and Lake Como this year.
