Hilton London Metropole – the UK’s largest conference and meetings hotel – has unveiled its new-look King’s Suite, following completion of a major refurbishment project with an investment of close to £1 million. With increased capacity accommodating up to 1,700 delegates, the renovations feature a timeless and sophisticated design scheme along with new technological advancements designed to meet the needs of today’s meeting organiser.

Located in the hotel’s West Wing Convention Centre, the revitalised King’s Suite is the hotel’s largest conference room, delivering 1,062 m² of pillar-free event space. Increased capacity following the refurbishment enables 1,700 to be accommodated for a reception or theatre style, 1,080 for lunch or dinner on rounds, 880 for a dinner dance and 664 cabaret style. For smaller events, the room can be divided into two, while those needing extra space can combine the King’s Suite with the Monarch Suite, immediately below, for maximum flexibility.  

The clean and modern design scheme features American Black Walnut and rich, warm tones for a timeless and sophisticated look. The renovation has also seen the introduction of new, high-specification technology, including a DMC controller for ultimate control over both light and sound, improved lighting options – including individual colour lights for different areas of the room – and climate control managed via a digital panel, to set the right mood. The new features join a long list of advanced facilities already available at the hotel, including 100MB high-speed data lines, back projection and state-of-the-art sound and lighting technology.

“We are thrilled with the new look King’s Suite,” said Emma Randall, groups, conference and events sales director, Hilton London Metropole. “As one of the largest meetings and events hotels in Europe we are experts at running large-scale events and are determined to offer the best possible experience and latest technology for event planners. Few hotels can offer over 1,000 bedrooms and conference facilities for up to 3,000, enabling us to offer an ‘all-under-one-roof’ solution, for both simplicity and cost-effectiveness.”

Event organisers booking the new King’s Suite before 31st December 2016 will receive a 10% discount for dates throughout 2017 *.
