£4 million refurbishment is unveiled in Southampton
SOUTHAMPTON, UK & MCLEAN, VA. - The UK's fastest growing upscale brand today announced the opening of DoubleTree by Hilton Southampton. Following a £4 million investment and renovation programme, overseen by Hilton, has seen the hotel convert to a DoubleTree by Hilton property.
Located in peaceful gardens close to Southampton city centre, the DoubleTree brand's kind and welcoming service can be seen throughout the property and its 135 renovated guestrooms. DoubleTree by Hilton Southampton is centrally located on the South Coast, within easy access Southampton city centre, and close by to Winchester, Portsmouth, Salisbury and The New Forest.
Following the investment, the property boasts a new onsite restaurant, Bracken Place Restaurant, Bar and Lounge which offers a variety of traditional and modern dishes to serve all taste buds. Along with this, the DoubleTree by Hilton Southampton has 14 renovated meeting rooms, all with air-conditioning, high-speed internet access and natural daylight. Ranging in size, the hotel can cater for all guest event needs, from a small Executive Boardroom for 4 people, to a wood-panelled ballroom that can seat up to 150 for a glamourous event or working conference.
The refurbishment has also seen a brand new reception and lobby area for guests to relax in, and for those wanting to keep fit, a new resident only Precor gym facility is available onsite too. Not only do the guestrooms now feature a modern and sleek design, but the renovation has seen the introduction of brand new bathroom suites and air conditioning units.
Richard Groome, General manager said, "We have a fantastic reputation in the city and Southampton is the natural gateway to the South Coast. We are extremely excited about welcoming guests to the DoubleTree by Hilton Southampton and bringing this Hilton brand and the famous DoubleTree cookie to Hampshire. The hotel's new lobby has a very sumptuous and chic look which extends our friendly welcome."
