DoubleTree by Hilton has announced it will open two new hotels in London this summer under franchise agreements with Westmont Hospitality.
The latest additions are DoubleTree by Hilton London - Hyde Park and DoubleTree by Hilton London - Ealing, both of which are in the final stages of extensive refurbishments totalling £20 million, joining seven other DoubleTree by Hilton properties across the capital city.
Patrick Fitzgibbon, senior vice president, development, Europe & Africa, Hilton Worldwide, said: “London is a world class destination and DoubleTree by Hilton is becoming a major part of its tourism offering.
“These two new properties complement the strength of our long established Hilton Hotels & Resorts presence, whereby this year we are celebrating the 50th anniversary of the landmark London Hilton on Park Lane.
“Building on the international exposure of 2012, we are thrilled to be enhancing our presence in London with these two latest additions, whereby we will have 38 upscale hotels spread right across the city and its airports.”
Doubletree by Hilton London - Hyde Park, located on Bayswater Road, is situated opposite the Kensington Gardens, close to the ever popular delights of Hyde Park, and is a short walk from the Notting Hill and Queensway underground stations.
The hotel’s refurbishment has created a spacious 24-hour fitness centre, as well as 12 new guest rooms on the first floor, taking the total number of guest rooms to 228.
Located only a few minutes’ walk from London Ealing underground and overground station, the 189-room DoubleTree by Hilton London - Ealing offers spacious in-room work areas as well as tech-friendly stations in the hotel’s public spaces, which also provide a relaxed setting for informal meetings.
The bar and lounge area features seating with built in power outlets, ideal for convenient laptop use. The restaurant, W5 Grill & Bar, specialises in dishes using locally sourced ingredients, and allows guests to unwind in a warm and contemporary dining room.
