Hilton Worldwide and EQ Group has announced a new addition to its DoubleTree by Hilton range in Kingston upon Thames, Greater London.

Located 12 miles south west of central London and adjacent to the Rive Thames, the hotel is set to open in the second-half of 2016 following a multi-million pound renovation.

Patrick Fitzgibbon, senior vice president, development, Europe and Africa, Hilton Worldwide said that the hotel will form a ‘major component’ of a new mixed-use scheme.

“Our fastest growing full service brand has added Chelsea, Islington and Docklands to its roster of top locations in the capital in the last 12 months,” he said.

“DoubleTree by Hilton London – Kingston upon Thames joins nearly 30 hotels under the brand across the UK. The hotel will form a major component of a new mixed-use scheme, responding to the diverse needs of visitors to the borough,” he said.

John Greenleaf, global head, DoubleTree by Hilton said: “We’re pleased to introduce DoubleTree by Hilton to yet another great London location. Guests at this hotel will be welcomed with the signature chocolate chip cookie and will experience the DoubleTree by Hilton CARE culture, which strives to Create A Rewarding Experience for both guests and Team Members.”

Councillor Kevin Davis, leader of Kingston Council, said that the town centre needed a ‘high quality’ place for business and leisure visitors to stay.

​There are some excellent hotels in the borough, but Kingston town centre itself has been crying out for a high quality place where leisure and business visitors can stay. So I am delighted that EQ Group, working with DoubleTree by Hilton, have chosen to take on and fit-out an existing purpose-built building located in a prime position in the town centre,” he said.

“As well as offering much-needed high quality accommodation, the new hotel will also fulfil a growing demand for professional meeting facilities and business accommodation.”
