Hilton London Metropole is to unveil the results of a multi-million-pound renovation project this summer, taking in guest rooms, public areas and the hotel’s events spaces.

The hotel is located close to Edgware Road Underground station and Paddington rail terminus, and at 1,096 rooms is Hilton’s largest property outside of the US and one of the biggest hotels in London.

The group said that “No element of the hotel will be left unchanged”. Rooms and suites have been redesigned “with a contemporary and bold aesthetic that reflects different London boroughs”, along with upgraded wifi connectivity and Hilton’s Digital Key concept, allowing guests to check in, select their room, and access the room during their stay using their smartphone via the Hilton Honors app.

The hotel’s four restaurants and bars are set to be relaunched “with exciting new drinking and dining concepts, including an all-day British brasserie, serving locally sourced ingredients, and a new suitably relaxed market-style dining outlet, that celebrates London’s street food scene”.

Meanwhile the property’s 35 events spaces and meeting rooms have also been “extensively renovated”, including the addition of two hybrid meeting spaces (allowing guests to combine in-hotel events with virtual interactions).

Finally the refurbishment works will also see the opening of a new 200 sqm fitness studio.

According to Hilton “The new, elevated aesthetic will take guests on an immersive experience through the capital”, with the architecture, design, restaurants and bars “showcasing 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”.

Commenting on the news Remco Norden, area general manager, said:

“Our ambitious multimillion pound renovation will maintain Hilton London Metropole as Europe’s leading conference and events hotel. The refurbishment 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 venue of choice for business and leisure travellers and corporate and private events of any scale.

“The refurbishment celebrates London and our hotel’s wonderful history. Despite the challenges the industry has faced in 2020, our hotel has an incredibly bright future and this renovation is our opportunity to invest in it.”
