Hilton, Canary Wharf opens

The dynamic London business scene has received a further boost today with the launch of the new £53 million Hilton London Canary Wharf, the first Hilton International property to launch since the Hilton Hotel Corporation takeover in February this year.
The modern 283 room Hilton London Canary Wharf is conveniently situated alongside the River Thames - just a short walk to the thriving business and shopping district that is Canary Wharf.

Howard Friedman, president of Hilton in the UK and Ireland said: “The Hilton London Canary Wharf is a particularly exciting addition to our increasingly strong portfolio as it is the first of three ‘new look’ Hilton properties to open this summer.

“If we are to look even further forward to London 2012, our investment in the Docklands area strategically makes sense for Hilton as we aim to be a key player in the success of this world event.”

Oliver Stockland the general manager of the new Hilton London Canary Wharf said: “The hotel has been designed to be surprising and different, with spacious and modern facilities - not forgetting all of the high standards of service that have come to be expected from Hilton.”

“We look forward to welcoming guests to the new hotel which has something for business and leisure travellers alike.”
