GREENWICH, London and MCLEAN, Va. - The Royal Borough of Greenwich welcomes one of Hilton's (NYSE: HLT) 14 market-leading brands, DoubleTree by Hilton, into its town today. Located in the world's Prime Meridian, where royal legacy is combined with contemporary architecture, DoubleTree by Hilton London Greenwich paves the way as the first Hilton-branded property in the Royal Borough of Greenwich.

Guests can delve into the culture of Greenwich town, as the award-winning 1940's landmark building is ideally located just steps from the historic World Heritage Sites of the original Royal Residence of Queen Elisabeth 1st, Royal Observatory, The Royal Navy College and the famous Cutty Sark. Travellers can soak up the picturesque panoramic views of the River Thames and the City of London's skyline from the top of London's oldest Royal Park, Greenwich Park.

"We are excited to be opening the newest addition to the DoubleTree by Hilton portfolio and providing guests with a memorable stay, beginning with our signature warm DoubleTree Cookie upon arrival."

The exquisitely-designed Oasis O1 restaurant presents Greenwich with a relaxed and unique setting to dine - day or night - and offers international cuisine and locally-sourced ingredients, which change with each season. After indulging in the restaurant's inviting menu, guests can cosy up at the O1 Bar, with some of the best wines, cocktails and champagnes in the area.
