If you are passing through London in the near future, Hilton and Lime have partnered up and stationed 70 of Lime’s JUMP e-bikes outside seven of Hilton's flagship properties in central London, even providing their guests vouchers for first-time 15 minute vouchers users for free. This will be useful for those wanting a bit of socially-distanced mobility across London!
The participating hotels* are:
- Conrad London St. James
- London Hilton Park Lane
- The Waldorf Hilton London
- Hilton London Kensington
- Hilton London Metropole
- Hilton London Tower Bridge
- Hart Shoreditch London, Curio Collection by Hilton
*All hotels are currently following Hilton's CleanStay health protocols during this health-conscious time. This includes a seal on the room door to show and reassure guests that no-one has entered since their room was cleaned, as well as disinfecting all surfaces that are commonly touched, such as lamps, light switches, remote controls etc.
Note that you don't need to be a hotel guest to use the bikes, but you will need to be a guest to receive the free voucher. The costs are otherwise 15p per minute. To use the bikes you need to download the Lime app and unlock the bikes by scanning a QR code within the app. Once you get to your destination you can park the bike in any permitted spot across the city and you don't even need to return the bikes to the hotel.
Hilton have set up this useful page which allows you to explore the various attractions within reach of your specified hotel.
While travel plans are a little more cautious, Hilton has extended its Double Rewards promotion running until 31st December 2020 whereby you can earn double points which also count towards elite status. This may also be of use if you plan to use the Hotels as day rooms.
