Over a century later and the Waldorf Hilton still thrives in the epicentre of the capital’s vibrant West End. Located at the heart of London’s theatre-land, the hotel is a stone’s throw from some of the world’s best playhouses and concert halls. The key wedding spaces are housed with the impressive Edwardian listed building and the interiors ooze with old world Jazz appeal. Envision floor to ceiling columns, soaring ceilings laced with delicate arabesques, huge chandeliers, blush velvet banqueting chairs, grand pianos and mirrored hallways with framed black and white photographs of Hollywood’s elite. The hotel stands proud as a beautiful wedding ceremony and reception venue that suits all styles thanks to its decadent decor, perfectly understated yet utterly stylish.
Since its grand opening, the Waldorf Hilton has hosted some of London's most elaborate and memorable events across the city's history. The hotel even starred in the original Titanic film, and Palm Court was transformed into the elegant interior of the iconic British passenger liner. Despite its authentic art deco looks, the venue is also equipped with latest technology and is designed to suit many layouts. So whether you would like to indulge in a decadent silver-service banquet for 380, or arrange an intimate ceremony of 50, the range of possibilities is a testament to the Waldorf Hilton's versatility.
The Waldorf Hilton has two key spaces: Palm Court and the Adelphi Suite. Restored to its magnificent former glory, the Palm Court boasts a stunning glass ceiling, imposing pillars, decorative palm trees and original marble staircases which make a grand bridal entrance for the ceremony. Adjacent to the Palm Court sits the lavish Adelphi Suite, the Waldorf Hilton’s grand ballroom. The neutral decor provides the ideal canvas to bring your own creativity, and the room can also be separated into thirds or used as one uninterrupted space. Its total capacity comfortably seats 350 people with staging and a dance floor or 380 without.
Finally, the Executive Boardroom along the hallway features an original fireplace and classical oil paintings, making it a desirable bridal changing suite, break out area or a special place for ‘first look’ moments with your parents. Enjoy this room to toast with your bridesmaids, rehearse speeches and make those last minute finishing touches. It can also double up as a green room for your suppliers; entertainers, musicians, and photographers.
Highly professional staff. Great set up in the hotel. Nice atmosphere. Reheim, one of the managers was terrific. He was very helpful and accommodated all of our needs. All the staff were helpful the entire time we were here.
I would just like to extend a massive thanks to all at The Waldorf for truly making us feel at home. Massive thanks to Manfred, Olga and all the doormen for handling the chaos we caused so professionally and with nothing but warm smiling faces. NOTHING was too much trouble! We truly appreciate everything you all did to make the wedding a truly memorable and beautiful occasion. Lots of love to you all.
A beautiful venue for a wedding.
The staff were very welcoming when we arrived for the reception drinks. The interior was bright, lux and accessible for all the old people that attended.
Excellent function space.
I had my wedding at the Waldorf Hilton and can say from the start to finish the team there were outstanding. They are very meticulous personable and went out of their way to ensure the night was a great success. I would not hesitate to recommend the Waldorf Hilton for your special day.
We were married here exactly a year ago today. Everything from the first phone call through to the wedding was simply A+ service. There are simply not enough words to explain how phenomenal this hotel is. The glorious classy entrance, the modern chic interior, the phenomenal service. Vladimir was the organiser of our wedding day and he ensured we not have the typical ‘things go wrong’. Every tiny detail was perfect.
We cannot praise the hotel enough. Very warm welcome on arrival. The photos on the hotel website do not do it justice. Made many memories and an enormous thank you again to the staff for making us feel special.
