Hilton Wembley opened just in time for Olympics
Just a few days before the start of one of the biggest sporting events in U.K. history, Hilton Hotels & Resorts opened a new landmark hotel, Hilton London Wembley.
The 361-room Wembley Plaza hotel is located next to the Wembley Stadium and Arena, home to some of the UK’s most popular events.
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.
With architecture and interior design by The Manser Practice, the 281,650 square foot Hilton London Wembley includes 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 fullequipped LivingWell Health Club, complete with 12-metre pool, sauna, steam room, whirlpool and 24-hour gym for hotel guests.
Guests can enjoy spectacular views over Wembley Stadium, Wembley Arena and Wembley Way from the ninth floor roof bar, Sky Bar 9. Its spacious outdoor terrace for up to 150 people is also available for private hire, offering a unique venue for events and private functions. The hotel restaurant, aptly named The Association, seats up to 280 guests and offers a hearty modern-British menu, while the stylish Icons bar is ideal for afternoon tea, a light snack or post dinner cocktail.
Wembley City is one of the U.K.’s largest redevelopment schemes, with over one million square feet of construction underway across the area. Quintain, responsible for the regeneration, is transforming 85 acres of former exhibitions lands around Wembley Stadium, which will include a new 280,000 sq ft retail destination – The London Designer Outlet – offering high street and designer brands, as well as a dynamic restaurant and leisure scene.
