DoubleTree by Hilton London-West End opens in Bloomsbury
Hilton’s latest London property, the DoubleTree by Hilton London-West End, has opened in Bloomsbury, in a prime location next to the British Museum and within walking distance of shopping and restaurant haven Covent Garden and London’s famous West End.
Oxford Street, with its famous department stores Selfridges, John Lewis, House of Fraser and Debenhams, is an easy walk from the hotel, and guests staying in London for business will find it easy to reach the City. Theatre land, too, is not far away, and the 214-bedroom hotel is also close to St. Pancras Station – for Eurostar – and Heathrow and Gatwick are easily reachable by tube and train.
Bloomsbury is known as London’s historic literary distict: “The Bloomsbury Set” was a group of writers who lived and met to debate literature and politics in the early 1900s. Its most famous “members” were Virginia Woolf, E.M. Forster and John Maynard Keynes and many of the houses in the area commemorate their famous past inhabitants with English Heritage blue plaques.
With its beautiful Edwardian facade, the DoubleTree by Hilton London-West End retains its historic charm without sacrificing modern convenience. The hotel’s guest rooms, suites and executive accommodation feature pampering bath amenities, generous work surfaces, LCD TVs, wireless high-speed internet access and the brand’s signature Sweet Dreams by DoubleTree beds.
After shopping and sightseeing, Bar 92 is a relaxed spot for a drink or a cup of tea, and The Level Restaurant offers an innovative international menu, with breakfast served daily although room service is available to guests 24 hours a day.
DoubleTree by Hilton is a proud member of the Hilton Worldwide portfolio of hotels, with a fast-growing network that spans more than 240 hotel and resort locations around the world. The full-service hotel brand has grown considerably since its European introduction in the spring of 2008 with 18 DoubleTree by Hilton hotels now open in eight countries across Europe.
Set in the heart of the stylish and historic Bloomsbury district, the hotel’s address is 92 Southampton Row London WC1B 4BH.
