The two hotels, which comprise of over 1,800 beds, were part financed through Aareal Bank to the tune of £330 million.
Hilton’s London Metropole, offering 1,059 beds and 42 conference and meeting rooms, is located in close proximity to Paddington Station, offering easy access to Heathrow airport.
The Birmingham asset is Hilton’s most significant outside of London, with a 790 rooms and the capacity to hold up to 2,000 delegates, across 33 banquet and meeting rooms.
Located in Birmingham’s Exhibition Centre, it sits adjacent to the Birmingham International Airport and future HS2 train station.
Henderson will work closely with Hilton on an asset management programme, while Hilton will continue to manage the properties.
Nick Weber, founding partner of Henderson Park, said: “The completion of this acquisition brings two significant hotel assets into our portfolio, both of which offer a number of opportunities to further enhance their value through the implementation of a refurbishment and repositioning programme we intend to undertake with Hilton.”
He added: “The £330 million financing that we have secured with Aareal is a further endorsement of both the assets’ defensive characteristics and high quality, as well as our business plans for them.”
