New high-rise hotel will feature 196 guest rooms, including 12 suites, and is due to open in early 2021
WOKING, UK and MCLEAN, Va. - Hilton (NYSE:HLT) today 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," said 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, located within the new Victoria Square retail and residential development, will play an integral role in Woking's town centre regeneration. Hilton Woking will be conveniently situated a short walk from Woking train station, with a journey time to Central London of less than 30 minutes. Additionally, the town provides direct, high-speed rail links to key locations across the South and West including Exeter, Cardiff, Bristol and Bournemouth, and is only 15 kilometres from Heathrow Airport.
"We look forward to working with Hilton on this terrific project," said Cllr John Kingsbury, director of BSDL and leader of Woking Borough Council. "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 UK."
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.
"Having opened DoubleTree by Hilton Woking in 2016, the new Hilton Woking will be a great complement to our existing hotel in the town," said Andreas Lackner, regional head, full service brand management, Hilton. "This new hotel is set to be a beacon of hospitality at the heart of Woking's thriving when it opens in 2021."
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.
Hilton Woking will be located at the junction of Victoria Way and Church Street West, Woking, Surrey, United Kingdom. For more information about Hilton Hotels & Resorts, visit hilton.com.
