The new hotel in Syon Park, a Hilton Waldorf Astoria, is accepting bookings from February 2011.
The hotel had been slated to open in November this year, but the website is now accepting bookings from February 2011. The hotel is set in Syon Park, the historic home of the Duke of Northumberland, and looks across the River Thames onto Kew Gardens.
Hilton say the 137-guestroom hotel will offer “state-of-the-art meeting and conference facilities”, something very much lacking in West London. It also contains restaurants, bars and a spa. It will also contain a butterfly house in the lobby; an ice-cream parlour; a swimming pool; a park-view first-floor terrace with seasonal food and drink offering; seven luxury suites, each with their own exclusive and palatial theme; and 1,000 square metres of meeting and event space. Guests will have use of the park grounds, with all year-round access to the Syon House gardens and activities including trout fishing.
Construction of the hotel has enabled the restoration of a number of important historic features designed by landscape architect Lancelot “Capability” Brown, and future revenues will enable restoration work to Syon House.
