The divine decadence of the Waldorf Astoria is continuing its journey across the pond. Hilton Worldwide announced it will open a new Waldorf Astoria hotel in West London‘s Syon Park.
The new hotel will look out across the River Thames onto Kew Gardens and is seven miles from Knightsbridge and Heathrow Airport. The 137-room hotel is set to open in November 2010 and will feature a butterfly house in the lobby, an ice-cream parlor and is rumored to offer “spa” treatments from celebrity surgeon Alex Karidis. The hotel will, of course, have several restaurants and bars, and offer a concierge service to help London travelers with top tourist attractions.
London’s Syon Park offers a wide range of event facilities, all which will be made available to Waldorf Astoria guests including The Grand Syon Ballroom, which can host 450 guests in a theater style setting or 320 guests for a cabaret.
