This week Hilton Hotels plan to launch a ‘vegan-suite’ at Hilton London Bankside hotel, in Southwark. It is the first bedroom of its kind in London.

Everything in the bedroom, from the furniture to the bedding and the mini-bar snacks is plant-based and has been approved by the Vegan Society.

The carpets are made from organic cotton and the curtains from soyabean silk.

Hilton London Bankside has a vegan-friendly check-in desk solely for the vegan suite guest, complete with chairs upholstered in Pinatex, a material made from pineapple leaves. The hotel also has a ‘vegan’ dining room.

The vegan dining area is a safe space with four Pinatex tables and chairs. The intention is that vegan diners won’t see meat on the plates of the other guests.
