DoubleTree by Hilton adds to stable with Stratford-upon-Avon hotel
DoubleTree by Hilton has added a string of hotels to its portfolio, including The Stratford Hotel in Stratford-upon-Avon, following a franchise agreement with real estate investment company Aprirose.
The Stratford Hotel, which has 102 guest rooms, a fine dining restaurant and fully equipped gym, joins four other hotels located in Oxford, Glasgow, Cambridgeshire and Yorkshire as part of the deal.
They are expected to welcome their first guests under the DoubleTree brand later this year.
Patrick Fitzgibbon, senior vice president, development, EMEA, Hilton said: “With the addition of these outstanding hotels, DoubleTree by Hilton has grown to more than 50 properties trading or under development across the UK and Ireland. Fundamental to its success has been the diversity of the portfolio. These properties, which range from exclusive landscaped resorts with considerable sporting and spa amenities, to an impressive hotel in the heart of Stratford-upon-Avon, will further enhance the brand’s offering to business and leisure guests.”
Manish Gudka, CEO of Aprirose said: “Having recently acquired Hampton by Hilton London Docklands and Hilton Reading, we’re looking forward to growing our Hilton portfolio by converting five hotels under DoubleTree by Hilton. DoubleTree by Hilton represents a mark of quality for discerning travellers, and we are looking forward to working in partnership with Hilton, and exploring future development opportunities in the UK market.”
Helder Pereira, CEO of RBH, added: “We are looking forward to building our already strong working relationship with Hilton, by welcoming five more DoubleTree by Hilton properties to our growing portfolio, in addition to DoubleTree by Hilton Edinburgh City Centre.”
