Hilton London Heathrow Airport has announced a new restaurant concept as part of the hotel’s £3 million refurbishment.

The changes to the hotel include a new restaurant and a new look and feel for its large open lobby space.

The design is based around the concept of ‘view from above’ and will feature an oversized chandelier and a number of living plant installations, which will provide a welcoming feel to the hotel’s large atrium.

Designers have used a muted colour palette and pared back furnishings to give the public spaces of the hotel a comfortable, urban and modern feel.

At the time of the unveiling this spring, visitors will also be able to experience the hotel’s new restaurant concept, OXBO, which will have three different outlets at the hotel. The new food and beverage concept has been created under the ethos ‘bound by nature’, with sustainability, respect for the land and for agricultural heritage being driving forces behind the menus.

Hilton London Heathrow is one of the first Hilton hotels to roll out OXBO, with guests being offered a variety of options at an OXBO Café, OXBO Bar and OXBO kitchen, each with different food and drink menus available day and night. The new food outlets have been designed to cater for a wide variety of needs, from food on the go, to informal sharing plates, to hearty, traditional favourites, with the emphasis on responsibly sourced ingredients.

“The hotel is well known for its first class customer service and the new look will certainly enhance the customer experience,” comments Oliver Stockland, General Manager.

Adding: “We’ve made the most of the fantastic space we have here and created a contemporary, stylish look which we are confident will be well received by all of our guests. We can’t wait for them to experience it for themselves.”

The hotel is also extending its options for conference and events organisers, once gatherings are allowed to be held again.
