    DoubleTree by Hilton has recently announced the opening of DoubleTree by Hilton London Docklands Riverside on the banks of the River Thames, following an extensive refurbishment and reflagging.The immaculate hotel offers 378 guest rooms with views across London’s iconic River Thames to Canary Wharf, a key business, shopping and entertainment precinct. It is the only hotel in London with its own pier – taking full advantage of its waterfront location – and offers stylish, modern accommodation, restaurants, bars and event venues. The hotel’s contemporary architecture and design draws inspiration from the site’s heritage as the distinguished Rotherhithe shipping dock – beautifully mixing modern comforts with the site’s historical maritime charm.

    The hotel provides a crossriver 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. Much of the site’s history has been preserved, including the former shipping docks, and the DoubleTree by Hilton London Docklands Riverside offers the only dry dock in London, perfect for a celebration under the stars.

    Guests can enjoy contemporary dining experiences at the hotel’s restaurant Columbia, overlooking the Thames and Canary Wharf, private dining, intimate 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.
