Hilton has announced plans to introduce its flagship Hilton Hotels & Resorts brand to the affluent Surrey town of Woking, with the signing of a management agreement with Bandstand Square Developments Limited (BSDL).
The new high-rise hotel will feature 196 guest rooms, including 12 suites, and is due to open in early 2021.
“Hilton Woking joins Hilton’s impressive portfolio of more than 160 trading and pipeline hotels in the UK and Ireland,” says Patrick Fitzgibbon, senior vice president, development, EMEA, Hilton.
“Woking is undergoing a major transformation, with an estimated £500 million funds committed in the next five years. This ambitious regeneration – together with the town’s fantastic connectivity to central London and its main airports – makes it a prestigious location in which to introduce our flagship brand.”
The hotel will feature a lobby bar, all-day dining restaurant, stylish Sky Bar, and an on-site coffee shop. For corporate events and gatherings, the hotel will offer more than 700 square metres of function and meeting space, including a 540-square-metre ballroom for up to 500 guests. For those travelling on business, guests will find both an Executive Lounge and business centre.
Hilton Hotels & Resorts has nearly 60 properties under development across Europe Middle East & Africa, adding destinations like Saint Petersburg, Tashkent, Cabo Verde, Tanger, Riyadh and Lake Como this year.
