DoubleTree opens harbor-side hotel in London

The DoubleTree by Hilton London Docklands opened on the banks of the River Thames, following an update and reflagging.

The hotel offers 378 guestrooms with views across the River Thames to Canary Wharf, a business, shopping and entertainment precinct. It is the only hotel in London with its own pier, and the hotel provides a cross-river shuttle ferry to the Canary Wharf Pier, where guests can easily access the Canary Wharf business and shopping district as well as London’s famous attractions downstream via Thames Clippers including the Tower of London, London Eye and Palaces of Westminster.

Guests can access contemporary dining experiences at the hotel’s restaurant Columbia, overlooking the Thames and Canary Wharf, private dining, special events in the Snug as well as drinks and the outdoor kitchen along the Terrace. The hotel also caters for river cruises, offering bespoke menus for private boat hire events for between 12 to 48 people guests direct from the hotel pier.
