The Hilton Metropole Hotel is in the heart of London, just a 10-minute walk from the West End, Hyde Park and Oxford Street shops and a 10-minute tube ride from Piccadilly Circus and the beautifully restored St. Pancras Station (where the Eurostar train now embarks for Paris and Brussels). The 4-Star Hilton  Metropole Hotel recently renovated its sleeping rooms and state-of-the-art conference facility, and it offers an executive lounge, gym, swimming pool and sauna on site.

Getting to the Hilton Metropole couldn’t be any easier; it is only a 15-minute train ride from Heathrow Airport.  Just hop on the Heathrow Express and disembark at Paddington Station, which is 2 minutes by taxi, or 5 minutes on foot from the hotel.
