Set-Jetting: Be Inspired by Your Favorite TV Show Destinations with Hilton
With so many still in lockdown, binge-worthy TV shows have us dreaming about exotic escapes, city explorations and historic sights.
From the wisteria-adorned streets of Regency London to the winding romantic streets of Dublin, Ireland, there’s no shortage of travel inspiration one can find on the small screen.
That said, here are eight Hilton hotels, situated in the heart of iconic filming locations, that are sure to inspire future bucket-list destinations for TV-loving travellers.
Situated at 44 Grosvenor Square, the same address as the family home in the Regency London-inspired TV show, The Biltmore Mayfair oozes class and sophistication. The hotel features 307 opulent rooms, including 57 suites with views looking over the square.
Dine like royalty at The Betterment, spearheaded by Jason Atherton, acclaimed Michelin-starred chef. Lounge in The Pine Bar to enjoy the very best cocktails.
With iconic landmarks on the hotel’s doorstep, guests can ‘promenade’ to the sites and delights the capital has to offer, including Hyde Park, Mayfair and Soho.
Prices at The Biltmore Mayfair start from £420 per night**.
If a visit to a country pile sounds more appealing, look no further than Hilton London Syon Park situated next door to the regency house where several scenes of the series were filmed.
Hilton Berlin, Germany
