Located next to Angel tube station, DoubleTree by Hilton London Islington opened today after undergoing refurbishment on its 229 bedrooms. This number will increase to 372 on 1 October, when the hotel plans to unveil an extra 143 rooms including 66 deluxe rooms and 43 executive rooms.
The ground floor, designed by designsquared, features a contemporary lobby and lounge area.
The hotel also has a gin bar called Bar60, an all-day full-service restaurant called The Grill, over 3,200 square feet of meeting space as well as 24-hour complimentary business centre and fitness centre and free Wi-Fi.
Thomas Doyle, general manager of the hotel, said: “The hotel has undergone a transformation, prior to converting under the DoubleTree by Hilton brand, including the addition of an executive lounge and fitness suite, not to mention a new London gin bar ‘Bar60’ which offers signature cocktails to suit a wide range of tastes. I am looking forward to greeting guests with DoubleTree by Hilton’s warm welcome.”
The hotel is part of the Hilton HHonors guest loyalty programme, allowing members to earn and redeem points with each stay.
The property also marks the brand’s 10,000th room in Europe, and operates under a franchise agreement with Jurys Inn.
John Greenleaf, global head of DoubleTree by Hilton added: “Since 2007, the brand has grown from no presence in the UK to nearly 25 properties, with ten of these in the London area. The DoubleTree brand resonates with the UK traveller by offering a friendly, approachable service experience, which starts with the presentation of our signature, freshly-baked chocolate chip cookie at check-in.”
John Brennan, CEO of Jurys Inn, said: “The Double Tree by Hilton franchise provides Jurys Inn access to a broad international customer base. Our hotels’ prime locations as well as Hilton Worldwide’s renowned brand will put us in a strong position to grow revenue as well as continue to deliver stand-out customer service.”
