Woking’s new sky-high luxury hotel has reached its highest peak at almost 100 metres, marking a significant milestone in a £540 million town centre transformation.
Initial internal design plans and images for the new hotel which have just been released promise a modern, contemporary feel with ambient colours and world-class facilities. The hotel is due to be completed at the end of next year.
A key focal point in Woking’s Victoria Square transformation project, the striking 189-room Hilton Woking hotel is being built by construction giant Sir Robert McAlpine, which is spearheading the Victoria Square building project.
Due to be completed in summer 2021 and strategically located at the junction of Victoria Way and Church Street West, the new four-star Hilton Woking will be operated by Hilton Worldwide and joins an impressive portfolio of more than 160 trading and pipeline hotels in the UK and Ireland.
Featuring a lobby bar, an all-day dining restaurant and an on-site café, for corporate events and gatherings, it will also offer more than 700 square metres of function and meeting space, including a 540 square metre ballroom for up to 500 guests. For those travelling on business, guests will find both an executive lounge and business centre.
An impressive Sky Bar on the 22nd floor will offer commanding views across Surrey and towards London, where its own dramatic skyline can easily be seen.
Among the best-connected hotels in Surrey and the South East of England, it will complement the existing DoubleTree by Hilton Woking which opened in 2016 with 177 guest rooms and 12 suites.
Anchored by a new, flagship Marks & Spencer food and clothing store across 50,000 square feet, Victoria Square will also incorporate 429 apartments across two new residential towers and will include a new multi-storey car park, a medical centre and two public plazas. It also offers a further 75,000 square feet of innovative retail space.
At 34 and 32 storeys high, the site’s tallest residential tower will be 118 metres high.
Earmarked for phased completion from summer 2021, with a complete fit-out for apartments and occupation by 2022, Victoria Square will play an integral role in Woking’s ongoing transformation.
The development is part of a joint venture between Woking Borough Council and Moyallen Group.
