Hotel Restaurants and Executive Lounge to Still Be Open in London? Coronavirus

Does anyone know if the hotel restaurants and executive lounge are still going to be open in London after today's announcement?
thinking of staying at Paddington or Heathrow tomorrow depending on the situation.
Thanks for your help.

Within 10 mins of the announcement Hilton Canary Wharf has closed Exec Lounge and restaurant
Had a phone call to my room and they’ve sent up a tray of food that was meant for the lounge with drinks and breakfast is room service only
Hotel is less than 10% full but staff have been excellent

wouldn’t it be better to close the hotel completely to protect the remaining staff and cut costs? How many guests are in now?

I just read Bankside has closed it’s restaurant and leisure facilities.

I would stay in a Heathrow hotel and get on the first flight I could get. Stay safe.

That probably explains why it was £99 for a king guest room last night, crazy isn’t it.

No bar or breakfast at the Hampton Inn I happened to be stuck in last night.
