Hilton Heathrow revamp underway

First class plane cabins are the inspiration behind a revamp that's being carried out at the Hilton London Heathrow Terminal Four hotel.

The newly refurbished spaces are said to mirror effortless travel in first class.

An initial phase of the revamp is planned to end this July and see 161 guest rooms transformed.

Features of the new spaces include walk-in showers, king sized beds and contemporary furnishing.

"Travelling – whether for business or leisure – should be as enjoyable an experience as possible and with our new-look rooms, we're aiming to give our guests the best possible start to their journey," commented Hilton London Heathrow Airport Terminal Four area general manager Jurgen Sutherland.

Given the hotel's location, it was the natural thing to use first class plane travel as a source of inspiration, she added, "to deliver a calming atmosphere designed to promote a good night's sleep and ultimately take the stress out of travelling."

The hotel features 398 rooms, as well as a pool, steam room, sauna and fitness centre open 24/7. It's situated just six minutes away from Terminal Four.

Describing the hotel's new rooms, Hilton hotels & Resorts has said they use warm and neutral shades that provide an atmosphere of tranquility.

They include redesigned bathrooms using black, silver and white shades and including mist-proof mirrors.

Hilton hotels & Resorts has over 550 hotels, situated in six continents, and is a brand of Hilton Worldwide.

In other Heathrow news, it was recently revealed that Heston Blumenthal eatery The Perfectionists' Cafe is set to open in Terminal Two this June.

The eatery is set to cover 443 square meters and will be found just after security, in the departure lounge. It's going to open on June 4th.
