DoubleTree by Hilton opens their latest addition to its growing London portfolio - the brand's 10th hotel in the capital area. DoubleTree by Hilton London – Islington is located in the heart of fashionable Islington.
The stylish property, which marks the brand's 10,000th room in Europe, joins Hilton Worldwide's fastest growing full service brand after a multi-million pound refurbishment, and, alongside the recently opened DoubleTree by Hilton London - Chelsea, operates under a franchise agreement with Jurys Inn.
John Greenleaf, global head, DoubleTree by Hilton said, "Since 2007, the brand has grown from no presence in the UK to nearly 25 properties, with 10 of these in the London area. The DoubleTree brand resonates with the UK traveler 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, Jurys Inn, said, "The DoubleTree 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.
DoubleTree by Hilton London - Islington is located less than 300 m from Angel tube station, and half a mile from Kings Cross station and St. Pancras International with connecting high-speed Eurostar services. Its location grants easy access to London's major attractions including Buckingham Palace, the National Gallery, British Museum, West End theatre district and the city's world-class shopping areas, including Oxford Street, Bond Street and department stores Harrods and Selfridges. The trendy district of Islington boasts a number of speciality boutiques, a vibrant arts scene and popular restaurants and bars, as well as the famous Emirates Stadium, home to Arsenal Football Club.
Thomas Doyle, general manager, DoubleTree by Hilton London - Islington, 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."
As with all DoubleTree by Hilton locations, the hotel will participate in the Hilton HHonors guest loyalty program, and members will be able to earn and redeem points with each stay.
