The Waldorf Hilton unveils Thomas & Friends suite with celebrity event

Celebrities and parent bloggers headed to London’s Waldorf Hilton Hotel this week for the unveiling of the first Thomas & Friends pop-up suite.

Philanthropist Katie Piper and JLS’ JB Gill joined a room full of excited parents and children for a Thomas & Friends afternoon tea, a prize giveaway and a sneak peek at the decked out room.

Set to welcome families from across the globe, the exclusive themed Thomas & Friends room is now available for guests to book and will run until September 4th this year.

A family sized room, the suite features wall graphics, bedding and curtain sets, landscapes, plush and a raft of Thomas & Friends toys for youngsters to enjoy.

Kids staying in the room – priced at £450 a night – will also be able to play with Mattel’s new Trackmaster Sky-High Bridge Jump as well as preview the upcoming Thomas & Friends DVD, The Great Race.

The room marks the first time Thomas & Friends has partnered with Hilton Hotels for a limited edition suite.

“We are delighted to be partnering with Hilton Hotels & resorts to bring together so many elements of our franchise for this fun-filled and unique event that will enrich the experience of family travel and our brand,” said Kate Schlomann, vice president, Fisher Price.

“For those little travelers who love Thomas & Friends and make new connections, this will be an unforgettable experience.”
