The former Hilton hotel at Nelson Dock is now trading under its less-than-catchy new name: ‘DoubleTree by Hilton London Docklands Riverside’.
John Greenleaf, global head of DoubleTree by Hilton, said, “The DoubleTree by Hilton London Docklands Riverside is just a two minute ferry ride across the River Thames to Canary Wharf, one of the world’s major global business districts, and near to international exhibition and event centres such as the O2 Arena and ExCel London. We are delighted to warmly welcome both business and leisure guests to this thriving London neighbourhood.”
The hotel’s general manager Howard Lewis added: “With views of the River Thames from the hotel’s restaurant and bar and a majority of guestrooms, the DoubleTree by Hilton London Docklands Riverside offers a sanctuary for both business and leisure guests in London. The hotel is ideal to unwind after a long day and soak in the ambience created by Canary Wharf’s lights sparkling across the river. We are extremely excited to welcome guests to the newly refurbished hotel.”
There are 10 DoubleTree hotels already in London and each guest is given a warm chocolate chip cookie when they check in.
