Henderson Park Real Estate Fund I acquires London and Birmingham Hilton Metropole hotels

Clients Henderson Park Real Estate Fund

Jones Day represented Henderson Park Real Estate Fund I in connection with its acquisition of the London and Birmingham Hilton Metropole hotels.

The acquisition marks Henderson Park's entry into the UK hotel market and follows investments into the sector in Paris, where it bought Le Méridien Étoile, the city’s largest hotel and the purchase of The Ledra, a 5-star hotel in Athens, on which Jones Day has also advised Henderson Park.

The Hilton London Metropole is one of Hilton's flagship hotels in the UK, and is London's largest conference hotel by delegate capacity and its second largest by room count. The Hilton Birmingham Metropole is the UK's largest hotel outside London.

In addition to M&A representation, Jones Day provided real estate and banking advice regarding this transaction.
