So, who wants to watch the F1 from their own hotel balcony?


New hotel at Silverstone set to be the loudest Hilton since Paris, and possibly the best

So, who wants to watch the F1 from their own hotel balcony?

So, who wants to watch the F1 from their own hotel balcony?

Generally, when you stay at a hotel, near-constant noise is just behind disgusting bathrooms, bedbugs and feculent pillows in reasons to never come back.

But if that noise is, say, the world’s fastest cars and bikes being wound out to their redlines by the world’s best racers at one of the world’s top-tier circuits… well, there’s entirely too much ‘world’ and ‘best’ in that sentence to not have us wondering if what could be Britain’s noisiest hotel could also end up being somewhere we’d actually want to stay.

Helpfully enough, a small, little-known hotel chain called Hilton is primed to open just such a place at Silverstone Circuit, and tells us the 75 rooms that face the Hamilton Straight can “be transformed into hospitality suites”, which would have made watching endurance races quite a bit easier… if they still ran at Silverstone.

Nevertheless, Silverstone is still home to F1, MotoGP and BTCC races, as well as the Silverstone Classic and any number of smaller race series. And as roughly anything beats camping in a field with a bunch of strangers, this Hilton place is starting to sound pretty decent. Add in a rooftop bar that overlooks both the F1 and Heritage tracks… well, that’s enough reasons to want to come back.
