Since opening its first hotel in Arizona in 1969, the DoubleTree brand has spread across the globe, become part of Hilton Worldwide, and now has hundreds of hotels in prime locations under the Doubletree by Hilton brand.
This month the brand has added to its already substantial London offering, with the Doubletree by Hilton London Docklands Riverside hotel joining existing properties in the West End, Westminster and London Victoria and other Central London locations on the roster.
Located on the bank of the Thames with views over the river and Canary Wharf, the hotel is reopening after a period of refurbishment and rebranding, having previously been the Hilton London Docklands Riverside.
The hotel currently has a total of 378 guest bedrooms and more than a dozen meeting rooms, making it suitable for people travelling to the capital on business or on holiday.
EturboNews reported the hotel’s general manager, Howard Lewis, commenting: “With views of the River Thames from the hotel’s restaurant and bar and a majority of guestrooms, the Doubletree by Hilton London Docklands offers a sanctuary for both business and leisure guests in London.
“The hotel is ideal to unwind after a long day and soak in the ambience created by Canary Wharf’s lights sparkling across the river. We are extremely excited to welcome guests to the newly refurbished hotel.”
Guests can easily access Canary Wharf, as the hotel provides a free shuttle ferry to the pier. The newly reopened property is therefore likely to appeal to anyone who plans to see London’s iconic riverside sights.
