Hotel operator and property investment firm Arora Group has today (April 4) purchased the occupational lease of The Hilton at London Stansted Airport and will now operate the hotel with immediate effect.
Arora has a strong presence at London Gatwick and Heathrow airports, and the latest venture into the Stansted area will further complement the company’s existing portfolio.
The Hilton at Stansted has 239 bedrooms, food and beverage outlets, conference rooms, a swimming pool and gym facilities. The hotel is a six-minute journey from the airport terminal and 30 minutes from Central London.
Surinder Arora, founder and chairman of the Arora Group, said, “This is a great opportunity for Arora to work with this major brand in a franchisee capacity, building on our valued relationship as landlord for a number of Hilton-operated hotels.
“We benefit from an unrivalled understanding of hotels in the UK’s airport regions as developers, operators and franchisees and we are really looking forward to bringing this expertise to this key location.
“Through the franchise agreement, we will be able to leverage the specialisms of the Arora Group’s property and hotel divisions to provide our hallmark excellence in end-to-end service, continuing to serve the customer-base which has enjoyed the hotel facilities over previous years.”
