Hilton Wembley Opens in time for Olympics

By Paul Joseph

A new Hilton Hotel situated just a short hop, skip and jump from Wembley Stadium has opened in London in time for the forthcoming Olympic Games which begin on Friday.

With Wembley being used as one of the key Olympic venues, the new hotel is perfectly positioned for visitors wanting to be close to the action.

The hotel is also part of wider plans to transform the area into one of the most thriving parts of the capital for sport, entertainment and architectural excellence.

Boasting 361 rooms, the design-lead property has several eye-catching features that celebrate its surroundings, including a two-floor feature wall depicting the greatest events in the history of Wembley Stadium and a custom made art installation showing hand-painted porcelain plates following and illustrating the route of the River Thames.

Dave Horton, global head, Hilton Hotels & Resorts, said, "We are excited about this latest opening for Hilton Hotels & Resorts in London.

“This uniquely placed hotel couples a stylish and contemporary look, with a sense of quintessential Britishness in the hotel's design."

A ninth floor roof bar with a spectacular outdoor terrace offers unparalleled views of Wembley Stadium, whilst inside the hotel are 18 suites, a 660-capacity ballroom, 10 state-of-the-art meeting rooms, business centre, boardroom, executive lounge, 200 on-site parking spaces and a fully-equipped Living Well Health Club.

The hotel restaurant, named The Association, seats up to 280 guests and offers a modern-British menu, while the stylish Icons bar is ideal for afternoon tea, a light snack or post dinner cocktail.

Boasting more than 32 properties in their London portfolio alone, Hilton Hotels and Resorts has grown to become one of the world’s largest and most famous hotel chains since its foundations in 1919.
