On Wednesday 12th June, a new DoubleTree by Hilton joined the London scene with the opening of the London Ealing property. The hotel was officially opened by Councillor Kamaljit Dhindsa.£10m has been spent on this property to bring it in line with the brand’s identity and it looks like it means business. With the redesign and refurbishment, the group decided to move the main entrance towards the rear of the property and in doing so, have created exclusivity for its guests; it’s no longer a hotel, it’s a secret club.
From the entrance you can see reception ahead and the bar to your left. The W5 Grill & Bar’s design features earthy tones with dark wood furniture and features and there is a terrace for al fresco dining should London ever see sunshine again.
Opposite reception is the business area with three or four workdesks and computers for guests use. Beyond this is the lift lobby and bathrooms, a large breakout area which services the Ballroom and two smaller business rooms, and a small bar.
