Wembley Hilton, London, UK
Wednesday 19 Dec 2012
The new Four Star Wembley Hilton hotel forms part of a continuing development of regeneration projects around Wembley stadium, North West London. The intention for the hotel was for it to have its own identity yet respect the context in which it sits. This is achieved through using polished black ceramic granite cladding to reflect the contrasting white facades of the newly refurbished grade II listed Wembley Arena opposite and to pick out reflections of the iconic Wembley Stadium arch.
The hotel provides luxury accommodation for events as well as entertaining functions, business meetings, dining and drinking opportunities to ensure it becomes a lively destination point in Wembley and London for Business and personal engagements.
The new Hilton Hotel Wembley comprises of 361 bedrooms, conference facilities, a 660 seat capacity ballroom, a 280 seat restaurant where guests can enjoy dining with Wembley Stadium as their backdrop, health club with the latest fitness equipment and pool to relax in, and destination bars including an exclusive roof top skybar with impressive views across North West London.
Guests arrive into a strikingly tall, light filled entrance lobby which has a spectacular and colourful light feature suspended over the room. From here guests can check in before proceeding to the sleek polished black granite elevator or to escalators set against bespoke wallpaper showcasing artistic imagines of London Landmarks.
The interior is imaginative yet reassuringly Hilton with smart furnishings and contemporary English feel. Natural light fills the interior by day and by night the spaces sparkle with a glamorous glow.
