DoubleTree by Hilton has replaced the failed Mint Hotel brand in London, acquiring two of its properties.
The new DoubleTree by Hilton London - Tower of London and London – Westminster are two of eight Mint Hotels across the Netherlands and the UK joining the Hilton Worldwide portfolio.
Simon Vincent, area president Europe, Hilton Worldwide, said: “The dynamic European growth of DoubleTree by Hilton, with more than 25 hotels opened since 2008 and 25 additional hotels under development across the region, indicates remarkable promise for the brand as we enter 2012.
“With more than 220 hotels open and 110 hotel development projects currently underway in Europe, the potential for travelling consumers and hotel developers alike to enjoy and explore the Hilton Worldwide portfolio has never been greater.”
The DoubleTree by Hilton London - Westminster and DoubleTree by Hilton London - Tower of London share modern architectural designs that are characterised by their transparency and versatility.
Large, floor-to-ceiling windows are featured in each guest room, meeting room and all bars and restaurant spaces within the hotel, providing plenty of daylight and impressive views of the city and the River Thames.
Rob Palleschi, global head, DoubleTree by Hilton, said: “DoubleTree by Hilton is honoured to expand its network in Central London and welcome the world’s travellers with two outstanding new hotel locations.”
In Europe, the Mint Hotel Amsterdam has become the DoubleTree Amsterdam Centraal Station.
Properties in Leeds and Manchester are expected to follow earlier next year.
Mint-operated locations in Glasgow, Bristol and Birmingham will become Hilton Garden Inns.
