    DoubleTree by Hilton has announced the opening of the seventh London property to join one of the UK’s fastest-growing, upscale, full-service hotel brands. DoubleTree by Hilton London – Marble Arch, which was officially unveiled today by Ufi Ibrahim, chief executive of the British Hospitality Association, is superbly located in the heart of London, close to Marble Arch station, Oxford Street, Edgware Road, Selfridges, Bond Street and Hyde Park. The hotel offers easy access to fantastic shopping and all the main attractions and business districts of London.The distinguished building was originally a private residence for Lady Black, Lady in Waiting to King George, and is renowned for its magnificent ornate ceilings, crafted by John Adams in 1800. Formerly known as the Best Western Premier Mostyn Hotel, the interiors of the 121-bedroom hotel underwent a full renovation in 2011, and the hotel now welcomes guests to stylish and carefully designed guestrooms, public areas and restaurants.

    DoubleTree by Hilton London – Marble Arch has a variety of contemporary guestrooms and suites that meet the needs of every kind of traveller. Each accommodation offers guests a comfortable retreat, complete with flat-screen satellite TV; high-speed Wi-Fi; mini fridge; laptop safe; in-room tea and coffee making services; marble bathrooms, rain showers; and refreshing Crabtree & Evelyn Citron® bath and body products. Two suites, named ‘Hanover’ and ‘Cavendish’, feature duplex bedrooms and spacious lounge areas.

    DoubleTree by Hilton London – Marble Arch is home to AA3 Rosette winner & Michelin Starred ‘Texture’, a modern European restaurant and Champagne bar with Scandinavian influences. Texture was created in 2007 by Agnar Sverrisson and Xavier Rousset, who met whilst working at Raymond Blanc’s Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons as Head Chef and Head Sommelier respectively. Originally from Iceland, Sverrisson has trained at a number of well-known Michelin starred restaurants, but remains loyal to his heritage, combining Icelandic and Scandinavian ingredients with locally sourced British produce. Rousset became the youngest Master Sommelier in the world when he passed the exam aged 23 shortly after winning the Ruinart Sommelier of the Year competition in 2002. Rousset is responsible for the eclectic and substantial wine list in the restaurant and bar.

    Other dining options at the hotel include ‘Fire & Spice Bar & Kitchen’, which features an eclectic range of grills, platters, international cuisine and sizzling house specialties; and Indigo Bar & Lounge, a sophisticated drinking and eating area. Room service also is available to guests 24 hours a day. A fitness suite is onsite for guests looking to exercise while on their travels.

    For meetings, conferences and events, DoubleTree by Hilton London – Marble Arch presents three meeting rooms and boardrooms, accommodating between ten and 130 delegates, plus five additional syndicate rooms, each hosting up to eight delegates. Business travellers and conference guests benefit from a complimentary, 24-7 business centre, concierge services, state-of-the-art technology and a convenient, central London location.
