Hilton Hotel in London Gets New Lobby

News Guests of Hilton London Metropole will be certainly pleased to see the recently renovated lobby of the hotel even though only the first phase is completed at the moment. When it comes to Hilton, a mere lobby is more than just a place to sit for a short time or leave this place totally unnoticed. The renovation cost of the lobby alone is equal to refurbishment expenses of an average hotel - £6 million (approximately US$9.3 million)!

The design of the new lobby was created by Aukett Fitzroy Robinson. Hilton London Metropole will also become the first Hilton hotel in the UK with the brand new lobby concept and design.

The first phase of the renovation was mostly targeted at creation of a new bar called EDG Bar & Lounge. The double-height bar is a stylish area mostly made in grey and yellow shades. EDG Bar & Lounge is decorated with fixtures made of fabric and leather, and through cut-out sections guests will be able to enjoy lights of the city. The Whisky Lounge is another addition. This lounge has enough space for 22 people, who are welcome to enjoy the drink in mauve-grey furniture with teal and dark cyan details. The Whisky Lounge is lit by suspended decanters.

Phase two of the renovation will mark the completing of the lobby. This is going to happen very soon – already this August. This part of the works will be mostly targeted at the entrance to the lounge. The renovation will increase the total space of the lobby by 60%; the lobby will get an additional entrance to Harbet Road, new decks made in the pod style and even five extra bedrooms. Hilton reports that it will also rebuild the hotel’s meeting rooms that are located on the mezzanine level of the hotel. There will also be made a new meeting room. The octagonal meeting room with huge ceiling to floor windows on six sides will surely attract business crews.
