Hotel chain Hilton opened its latest London property at Tower Bridge (pictured above) at the end of September. The 245 room hotel was designed by Jestico & Whiles, designers of One Aldwych. Materials used in Hilton”s new hotel include clay, copper and timber to create a ”quintessentially British addition to Southwark”s riverside skyline”, the hotel revealed.
Hilton Tower Bridge general manager Guy Klaiman (pictured left with Mayor of Southwark Paul Kyriacou) commented: ”I don”t expect our guests will have experienced anything like this in a Hilton before. Our aim is to engage and enrapture a whole new generation of business and leisure travellers.”
Included in the hotel”s 245 rooms are 55 executive suits, an executive lounge with scenic views over London, nine meeting rooms, one banquet suite, a LivingWell Express health club, the Larder Restaurant and the Ruba Bar.
The Hilton Tower Bridge is Hilton”s eighteenth London property and follows closely on the heels of the Canary Wharf property opened earlier in the year.
