The 361-bedroom Hilton London Wembley opens its doors today in time for the eight football matches being held at the nearby stadium during the London 2012 Olympics.
Situated adjacent to Wembley Stadium and Wembley Arena, the hotel is well placed for the host of sporting events and concerts which attracts four million people every year.
General manager Jack Nicholas, who is seen here with the hotel's newly appointed senior management team, said that the hotel will be a key player in attracting back the much needed conference and events market to the area.
"With ample facilities to host events and meetings on any scale, Wembley is an attractive destination for business travellers, which is a hub for sport, comedy and music," he said.
The hotel offers a 660-seat ballroom, 10 meeting rooms, a business centre, LivingWell Health Club with a 12m pool, sauna and steam room and 24-hour gym. Its restaurant, the 280-seat the Association, will feature a modern British menu, while the Sky Bar 9, located on the ninth floor of the hotel with an outdoor roof terrace, enjoys views over Wembley Arena and Wembley Way.
Rooms, with rates from £155, are currently still available at the Hilton London Wembley for the Olympic football matches.
