The hotel will receive a complete overhaul of its bedroom corridors. 30 bedrooms including eight of the property's deluxe plus business bedrooms will be upgraded and refurbished. The hotel business center will also be refurbished to create a brand new lounge area with 24 hour beverages available. The hotel is also spending £75,000 upgrading kitchen and catering equipment.
In an announcement, 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 both business and leisure 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."
Seven of the hotel's meeting rooms will also be renovated as part of the project.
The refurbishment follows a £400K program of work last year which included a revamp of lobby lounge areas, reception space, restaurant, and ballroom. The renovation 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 $3 billion during a three year period.
