Hilton Brighton Metropole unveiled plans for a £3.75-million renovation, which will see the landmark building in Brighton in the UK transformed with refurbished guestrooms, meeting rooms, and a brand new restaurant and spa. The renovation comes in time as the hotel celebrates its 125th anniversary in Spring.
The hotel, which sits on Brighton's seafront, is set to refurbish 185 of its 340 guestrooms (including four suites). The ensuite rooms, along with some communal guest areas, will be transformed into spaces that capture the Arts and Crafts movement, with historical styling alongside feature artwork paying homage to William Morris.
The rooms will be redesigned in calming tones complemented by functional lighting. The bathrooms will also be renovated to include a walk-in shower and new tiling throughout.
Earlier opened was The Salt Room restaurant, offering covered terrace seating and ocean views. This is the sister restaurant of The Coal Shed. The spa – rebranded as Schmoo by the Sea – was also already opened, boasting six treatment rooms, a manicure and pedicure zone, a relaxation zone and a welcoming reception and shop area.
In addition to the redesigned guestrooms and the new restaurant and spa, Hilton Brighton Metropole also recently renovated several banqueting and meeting rooms, providing improved facilities for business events, meetings and weddings.
