KINGSTON UPON THAMES, London and MCLEAN, Va. - DoubleTree by Hilton, one of Hilton (NYSE: HLT) 13 market-leading brands, today announced the opening of DoubleTree by Hilton Kingston upon Thames, located in the centre of the popular riverside town. The upscale hotel joins 72 DoubleTree by Hilton properties open across Europe and is the first Hilton-branded property in the Kingston market.

Boasting 146 modern guest rooms and suites, the hotel caters to the growing demand for upscale accommodation sought by the city's diverse set of travellers. The stylish property, managed by Interstate Europe Hotels & Resorts and asset managed by EQ Hotels Ltd, offers close proximity to a number of top attractions, with central London only a short train ride away.

Dianna Vaughan, senior vice president and global head, DoubleTree by Hilton, said, "Whether in South London on business or visiting popular attractions, like Hampton Court Palace or the River Thames, DoubleTree by Hilton Kingston upon Thames provides visitors with an enticing new destination, kind and friendly service and a warm, Chocolate Chip Cookie welcome cherished by the brand."

As the newest dining option to the neighbourhood, Hawkers Bar and Brasserie pays homage to Kingston's extensive contribution to the history of aviation. With its modern design as well as its lively indoor and outdoor atmosphere, Hawkers Bar and Brasserie boasts a trend-setting menu with a selection of contemporary dishes to complement its vast choice of local craft beers, spirits and wine, as well as a signature Afternoon Tea. 

In addition to the hotel's inviting dining options, DoubleTree by Hilton Kingston upon Thames offers world-class conference facilities outside of the hustle and bustle of London city. Three flexible function rooms are available to host casual business meetings, training sessions or personal events. The largest of the spaces can accommodate up to 260 people, along with offering a pre-conference and events area. Guests also have access to the 24/7 fitness centre which features state-of-the-art Precor equipment.

Beyond the iconic warm Chocolate Chip Cookie welcome, the hotel provides guests with a full complement of services and DoubleTree by Hilton brand amenities, including the Wake Up DoubleTree Breakfast, an assortment of gourmet in-room tea and coffee and a refreshing array of the Aroma Actives Essentials natural skin and body care line.

Nicholas Northam, managing director of Interstate Europe Hotels & Resorts, said: "On behalf of all at Interstate, we're thrilled to be managing the new DoubleTree by Hilton Kingston-upon-Thames. The hotel in an excellent location and we're confident its opening will be warmly welcomed.

"This is the first hotel opening to take place since I joined the company as managing director in November 2016 and so it holds special significance for me personally.
