Hilton Wembley in London opens in time for the Olympics

The Hilton London Wembley officially opened its doors to the public in time for the Olympic Games.

The hotel is located next to the Wembley Stadium and Arena in Wembley City, a redevelopment area with more than 1 million square feet of construction underway.

One of the main projects in the area is the London Designer Outlet, a retail mall with high street and designer brands and restaurants.

The 361-room hotel was designed by The Manser Practice and includes a two-floor wall depicting important events at the Wembley Stadium and a hand-painted installation illustrating the River Thames. The design has a British theme, with Union Jack rugs decorating the lobby.

The hotel’s facilities include 18 suites, a 660 person-capacity ballroom, 10 meeting rooms, a business center, 200 on-site parking spaces and a ninth floor bar, SkyBar 9, with a view of Wembley Stadium.

The Living Well Health Club offers a 12-meter pool, sauna, steam room and 24-hour gym for guests. The hotel restaurant has capacity for 280 guests.

With this addition, the Hilton chain now has 32 hotels in London, one of the most visted cities in the world.
