Hilton has added another property to its London portfolio under the DoubleTree brand. The new hotel in Greenwich was formerly a Mercure and has recently been rebranded under the DoubleTree brand.
The hotel, located close to Deptford Bridge on the DLR, is also close to Greenwich public transport links too. The 1940s building was once a police section house and has won a RIBA architecture prize in the past. The contemporary restoration to the landmark building is sympathetic to its past.
The new DoubleTree by Hilton branding includes the Oasis 01 restaurant, which is a restored firearms shooting gallery.
The restaurant uses locally sourced ingredients, and has a live projector wall for showing films and TV. There’s also the Oasis Bar and Lounge for drinks, a light lunch, dinner, or afternoon tea.
The hotel’s gym is currently undergoing refurbishment throughout February 2017, but it should soon be available for use again. The 24-hour business centre and event space, along with the proximity to the ExCel Centre, make the hotel ideal for business travellers. The three event spaces will hold up to 185 people for a reception, and there’s a pre-event space available too.
Another highlight at the hotel is the viewing deck, which gives you a view over London. It’s on the eighth floor of the hotel.
DoubleTree by Hilton London Greenwich features modern rooms with WiFi, 37-inch HD TVs, and coffee machines.
Their suites offer a view of the city, as well as a seating area and mini bar, plus high ceilings and bathrobes during your stay too.
The hotel is the first Hilton-branded property in the Greenwich area, although there are many more throughout London. It’s just 20 minutes from central London on the train, as well as half an hour from the O2 Arena, but many guests might choose it for its Greenwich location.
