Hilton Aberdeen Treetops has embarked on a £425,000 refurbishment programme, expected to be completed by autumn 2012. The hotel will remain in operation throughout the works.
Seven meeting rooms will be given a new look under the refurbishment programme.
The hotel, located on Springfield Road, will receive a complete overhaul of its 30 bedrooms including eight of the property’s deluxe plus business bedrooms. All corridors will also be refurbished, as will the business centre. A new lounge area will be created and £75k spent on upgrading kitchen and catering equipment.
Stewart Lorimer, Area General Manager for North of Scotland, said: “This is just the latest in an ongoing programme of upgrades we have undergone at the hotel to ensure we remain a key player in attracting business visitors to the city.
"Aberdeen’s hospitality sector continues to play a vital role in the economy of the city and we’re delighted to continually improve our proposition for busy business and leisure guests.”
The new round of refurbishment follows a £400K programme of work last year which included a revamp of lobby lounge areas, reception space, restaurant and ballroom.
The renovation in Aberdeen is part of a larger scope of major projects by individual hotels above standard annual capital expenditures across the global portfolio of Hilton Hotels & Resorts, the flagship brand of Hilton Worldwide. Beginning in 2011, the projects currently total more than US$3bn during a three-year period.
Hilton Aberdeen Treetops is situated 10 minutes from the city centre and 20 minutes from Aberdeen Airport. The 120-room hotel hosts nine meeting rooms with capacity for 1,000 delegates.
