Hilton Hotels & Resorts today announced the opening of its Hilton London Heathrow Airport Terminal 5, its newest hotel in the United Kingdom and second hotel at Heathrow Airport. The flagship brand of Hilton Worldwide pioneered the airport hotel concept when its founder Conrad Hilton opened the first airport Hilton hotel in 1959.
Located just over a mile from the airport's Terminal 5 building, the 350 bedroom Hilton London Heathrow Airport Terminal 5 is set within 13 acres of landscaped grounds and provides upscale accommodation for leisure and business guests travelling through the airport or visiting the hotel as a destination of its own. The hotel can accommodate up to 1170 events guests in 926 square metres of conference space, designed for lavish gala evenings or global conferences. Hilton London Heathrow Airport Terminal 5 also welcomes weddings for up to 800 guests in its Grand Ballroom, with the surrounding landscaped gardens providing a beautiful backdrop.
