Hilton Hotels & Resorts today celebrates the official opening of its new landmark hotel, Hilton London Wembley, just 10 days before the start of one of the biggest sporting events in U.K. history. With plans to transform the area into one of the most thriving parts of the capital, for sport, entertainment and architectural excellence, the opening marks a major milestone in the regeneration of the area.
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.”
Situated directly opposite Wembley Stadium, the 361-room hotel is a striking design-lead property indicative of the iconic events of 2012. Playing on its inherently British location, design features include an eye-catching two-floor feature wall depicting the greatest events in the history of Wembley Stadium and a custom made art installation displaying a sequence of hand-painted porcelain plates following and illustrating the route of the River Thames.
