CANARY WHARF”S new Hilton Hotel will officially open on Wednesday 12 July. It is in fact across the water on South Quay, the second DLR stop from Canary Wharf but a three minute walk to the centre of the complex with its underground air conditioned shopping centre and Tube access. The four-star property, a major addition to the area, has 272 rooms and features ten meeting rooms and a conference facility capable of hosting events for up to 380 delegates. There is an executive floor and Hilton”s ”LivingWell Express” with sauna and steam room. We see here Matthew Purcell, the newly appointed head concierge at the hotel who is keeping up a long line of family tradition. Rivalry will be at its peak come opening day. Matthew”s father Chris, his cousin and his uncles Dennis and David all work at rival London hostelries.
