Hilton Worldwide has entered into a franchise agreement with Jurys Inn to open its tenth Doubletree property in London.
Formerly Jurys Inn London Islington, Doubletree by Hilton London – Islington is located less than 300 metres from Angel underground station.
The hotel has undergone major renovation in the last six months and currently contains 229 rooms. From October 1, an extension to the property will see this number increase to 372, including 66 deluxe rooms and 43 executive rooms.
The property features a gin bar, Bar 60, a restaurant offering all-day dining, 300 sqm of meeting space, a 24-hour business centre, a fitness centre and free wifi.
John Greenleaf, Doubletree by Hilton’s global head, said: “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.”
Earlier this year, Hilton opened its ninth Doubletree property in London in Chelsea after signing another franchise agreement with Jurys Inn (see news, May 19).
