Rob Palleschi, Global Head for DoubleTree by Hilton, said: "With so many world-class events scheduled in London during the next several months, we are delighted to introduce another outstanding DoubleTree by Hilton in Central London and our eighth property in the United Kingdom."

"The unveiling of the DoubleTree by Hilton London-West End highlights the continued potential to competitively grow our brand in a variety of locations around the world, thereby enabling us to provide an extensive range and choice of premier accommodations to our customers wherever they travel."
