Hilton London Paddington upgraded, opens Tower Rooms and Tower Lounge

Hilton London Paddington, one of London’s Victorian Hotels, which has been in its current location since 1854, completed an upgrade that saw the opening of the GWR Tower Rooms and Tower Lounge @ Paddington. This comes after the property earlier underwent a £5 million full refurbishment of its bedrooms.

Located in an exclusive wing, the GWR Tower Rooms offer luxury accommodation. The name GWR Tower Rooms reflects the original name of the hotel when it first opened in 1854 as the Great Western Royal (GWR). This is therefore a tribute to the history associated with the building.

The rooms incorporate all the facilities associated with a premium product as well as access to Hilton London Paddington’s first class lounge, the Tower Lounge @ Paddington.
