Bristol's city centre sees the opening today of the 200-room DoubleTree by Hilton following a multi-million pound refurbishment.
The property's public areas and bedrooms have been overhauled in a comprehensive £5m refurbishment project that reflects the city's maritime and rail links, while the Kiln restaurant features a listed 17th century kiln but offers a menu of contemporary dishes. There are also conferencing facilities for up to 300.
John Greenleaf, global head, DoubleTree by Hilton, said, "DoubleTree by Hilton is a brand that cherishes individuality and a real sense of place within our hotels. We're delighted with the work that has been done to restore these qualities to our new Bristol property, which is the first of seven new UK hotels being added to our rapidly expanding portfolio this year."
DoubleTree by Hilton Bristol City Centre is owned by Focus Hotels Management and operated under a franchise license agreement with a subsidiary of Hilton Worldwide.
Peter Cashman, chief executive of Focus Hotels Management, said, "I am delighted to announce the opening of DoubleTree by Hilton Bristol City Centre. Our team is excited to have a second hotel under the DoubleTree by Hilton brand, following the unveiling of our DoubleTree by Hilton London - Heathrow Airport last July."
DoubleTree by Hilton has 41 hotels across the continent including 19 properties in the UK.
