McLEAN, VA and Dartford UK - DoubleTree by Hilton, UK's fastest growing upscale brand, and a part of the Hilton's (NYSE: HLT) portfolio, today announced the opening of the DoubleTree by Hilton Dartford Bridge. The hotel, previously part of the Hilton Hotels & Resorts portfolio, converted to a DoubleTree by Hilton as part of a renovation programme overseen by Hilton Worldwide and Westmont Hospitality.
Ideally situated just off of the M25 with close proximity to the QE2 Bridge connecting Kent and Essex, the hotel is an ideal location for Bluewater Shopping Centre, and exploring the South of England. DoubleTree by Hilton Dartford Bridge is close by to excellent transport links, with travel connections to Central London via the High Speed Train line from Ebbsfleet International.
The hotel boasts 179 spacious and modern guestrooms with a selection of room types from Queen Guest Bedrooms to King One Bedroom Suites. The QE2 Restaurant, Bar and Lounge offers a variety of dining options for all guests, with the option to dine in our bar area, lounge area, or in a modern setting of the restaurant where guests can enjoy a selection of either a buffet or daily menus. The newly renovated Livingwell Health Club features a 15-metre swimming pool, sauna, steam room, spa bath and full air-conditioned gym for guests to use at their leisure.
Following a £1.2million pound investment the hotel offers eight fully refurbished meeting rooms, ideal for hosting conferences, meetings, weddings and social events. The Queen Elizbeth Suite can hold up 200 guests in a banquet style and features an outdoor space - perfect for BBQs and Team Building Activities.
General manager, Darren Walsh said, "We are delighted to announce the opening of the DoubleTree by Hilton Dartford Bridge on Crossways Business Park, ideally located for business and leisure guests alike. We have a fully refurbished meeting space, restaurant, bar and lounge which we look forward to welcoming guests to in the future.
