The 197-room hotel will also include a rooftop terrace, a restaurant, a coffee shop and offer race-day hospitality experiences for all the major sporting events held at the venue.
In addition, the hotel will also have direct access, via a cross-circuit footbridge, to The Silverstone Wing Conference Centre – Silverstone’s event venue, which boasts 12,500 square metres (134,548 square feet) of flexible space for up to 3,000 people.
Built on the site of a World War II Royal Air Force airfield, Silverstone is the internationally renowned home of British motor racing and sits at the heart of Motorsport Valley – a region of the south Midlands and Oxfordshire that is home to a cluster of globally successful motorsport teams.
The hotel is being built by Bricks Capital Ltd while Hilton has signed a management agreement to operate the property.
