Two new DoubleTree By Hilton hotels are to open in London this summer under franchise agreements with Westmont Hospitality.
The latest additions are in the final stages of extensive refurbishments totalling £20 million and will join seven other DoubleTree by Hilton properties across the capital.
The Doubletree by Hilton London – Hyde Park, located on Bayswater Road, is situated opposite the Kensington Gardens.
The hotel’s refurbishment has created a 24-hour fitness centre, as well as 12 new bedrooms on the first floor, taking the total number of rooms to 228.
A restaurant with an emphasis on ‘farm to fork’ dishes using fresh seasonal ingredients is due to open in September.
The 189-room DoubleTree by Hilton London – Ealing offers in-room work areas as well as tech-friendly stations in the hotel’s public spaces. The bar and lounge area features seating with built in power outlets for laptop use.
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 and now have 38 hotels open and under development right across the city andits airports.”
