Hilton to Open New UK Hotel & Resort
- Jan 26, 2017
United Kingdom—Hilton recently announced the plans to introduce its Hilton Hotels & Resorts brand to the affluent Surrey town of Woking. The new 196-key and 12-suite hotel is slated to open in early 2021. Hilton has signed a management agreement with Bandstand Square Developments Ltd. (BSDL) for the property.
Located within the new Victoria Square retail and residential development, the new hotel will play an integral role in Woking’s town center regeneration. Hilton Woking will be situated a short walk from Woking train station and less than 30 minutes from Central London. Additionally, the town provides direct, high-speed rail links to key locations across the South and West including Exeter, Cardiff, Bristol and Bournemouth, and approximately nine miles from Heathrow Airport.
“The new hotel will offer everything guests require for a relaxing and productive stay, while being located in a fast-growing town with a strong business base. Together we will create a hotel that sets the standards of exceptional hospitality in the U.K.,” John Kingsbury, director of BSDL and leader of Woking Borough Council, said in prepared remarks.
The new hotel will feature amenities such as all-day dining restaurant, Sky Bar, lobby bar, on-site coffee shop, business center and executive lounge. Additionally, the hotel will offer more than 7,000 square feet of function and meeting space, including a 5,400-square-foot ballroom for up to 500 people.
