One of Victorian London's grandest hotels, the Great Western Royal hotel, originally built in 1854, has received a £60 million 21st century makeover from Muirgold Limited and been reborn as the Hilton London Paddington. This new 4 star deluxe property has benefited from a meticulous refurbishment of its art deco interiors and the installation of the most up to date technology.
Located right above Paddington Station, where the Heathrow Express rail services are based, this superb rail network travels from Terminals 1, 2, 3, & 4 at Heathrow Airport and takes just 15 minutes direct to Paddington Station. On arrival, passengers just take the escalator from the station concourse into the hotel lobby. What a great way to travel, easy, stress free, and quick!
On departure there are 27 check-in desks for the major airlines at the station, where you can check in your luggage, collect your boarding card and travel direct to your departure gate at Heathrow, avoiding unnecessary taxis, expense and time.
For the leisure visitor, the hotel's central London location means it's within walking distance of some of the city's major visitor attractions, including such famous venues as Madame Tussauds, The London Planetarium, Kensington Palace, and Oxford Street. Underground, bus, and taxi links are located right at the hotel to take you, in minutes, to sights such as the Houses of Parliament, London Eye, Buckingham Palace, Theatreland, and art galleries such as the Tate Modern and the National Gallery.
The Hotels Concierge Desk is on hand to organize theatre tickets and advice on tours for all those special events and tourist attractions for hotel residents. In addition, guests can obtain rail tickets to the Heathrow Express service from the hotel directly to avoid queuing at the station ticket counters.
The stunning interiors, designed in the style of the art deco period, speak of an elegance many thought lost forever. The hotel includes an excellent choice of 355 beautifully furnished and elegantly designed bedrooms including 56 Executive rooms & Suites, some with a private roof terrace. Every room is spacious and has that air of 'something special', just perfect for relaxing after a stressful business meeting or spending some fun with the family during that special short break or weekend away.
All the rooms have been beautifully furnished and include all the luxury you would expect from a 4 star deluxe property. The business and leisure traveller will find the latest in-room technology together with air conditioning, two direct telephone lines, voicemail, modem port, satellite television, laptop safe, mini bar, duvet bed covers, and big fluffy bathrobes and more!
