The London Borough of Greenwich has welcomed its first branded member of the Hilton hotels group with the opening of the 147-room DoubleTree by Hilton, housed in a former Metropolitan Police section house.
The award-winning 1940s landmark building is just steps from the historic World Heritage Sites of the original Royal Residence of Queen Elizabeth I, the Royal Observatory, Royal Navy College and the Cutty Sark.
It is also convenient for Docklands attractions including the O2 Arena, the ExCel conference and event centre, or the financial centre in Canary Wharf.
Hotel facilities include two meeting rooms capable of hosting up to 70 people and including a pre-function area with private bar, and the Oasis 01 Restaurant which is open day and night.
The Greenwich arrival comes in the same week as the opening of another addition to the portfolio, a new-build DoubleTree property in another iconic location, Times Square, New York.
The 37-storey high-rise building is close to the Broadway theatre district, the Jacob Javits Convention Centre, and the Empire State Building. It has 612 modern rooms, each with Theatre District-inspired artwork.
