Arora Group’s latest development, a new 360-room hotel at Heathrow Terminal 2, is set to open as Hilton Garden Inn next year, with direct transport links to the Queen’s Terminal.

Additionally, the Arora Hotel Gatwick will undergo an extensive refurbishment ahead of re-opening next winter as DoubleTree by Hilton. Hilton London Gatwick Airport will also be subject to a significant investment programme, enhancing the flagship hotel over the coming three years.

Patrick Fitzgibbon, Senior Vice President, Development, EMEA, Hilton said: "Having pioneered the concept of the airport hotel, we are pleased to be working with Arora Group to grow our portfolio, giving guests even more choice when planning their stay."
