DoubleTree by Hilton Continues UK Expansion

Hilton Worldwide has announced the signing of three franchise agreements for its rapidly expanding DoubleTree by Hilton brand across the UK. Having opened 11 hotels in the UK in the last two years, the brand has reached agreement on additional sites in Bristol, Edinburgh and Nottingham. It plans a further two later in 2013 bringing the total to 25.

DoubleTree by Hilton Edinburgh City Centre will become the brand's first hotel in the Scottish capital, which saw the luxury Caledonian, a Waldorf Astoria hotel complete its £24m restoration last year.  In a franchise agreement with West Register Hotels, the former Point Hotel will convert to the DoubleTree by Hilton brand in autumn 2013 following a period of significant investment and refurbishment. The 139-guestroom property is located in the city's historic old town, within easy walking distance of tourist attractions and shopping hotspots of the Royal Mile and Princes Street. It includes a brasserie style restaurant, stylish bar and top floor penthouse offering spectacular views of Edinburgh Castle.

DoubleTree by Hilton Bristol City Centre, located a quarter of a mile from Bristol Temple Meads rail station and a short drive from the M32, M4 and M5, is due to open in spring 2013 under a franchise agreement with Focus Hotels Management Limited. After a multi-million pound renovation, the former Jarvis hotel will join the brand complete with 201 guestrooms over six storeys. Its range of facilities includes a health club with sauna, the Arts bar and Kiln restaurant, housed in an 18th century glass kiln style building.

DoubleTree by Hilton Nottingham Gateway, located on the A610 which links Nottingham to the M1, is ideally positioned for both business and leisure guests. Under its former guise of The Nottingham Gateway Hotel the site is already an established meetings and events venue. The franchise agreement signed with Exceptional Hotels & Resorts Ltd will see a comprehensive upgrade of the hotel's 106 guestrooms, meeting rooms, public areas and leisure facilities - including the addition of a new swimming pool.  The relaunch is expected to be in late 2013.
