Those seeking a luxurious stay in Docklands now have a fresh option after DoubleTree by Hilton London Excel completed its re-branding of a former Ramada property.

DoubleTree by Hilton’s latest hotel, in Festoon Way close to the Excel exhibition centre, offers 260 rooms, a restaurant and a bar.

Guests staying in the 31 deluxe rooms or opting for one of the 35 suites can soak up views of Royal Victoria Dock from their bedroom

Meanwhile the DoubleTree Restaurant will focus on dishing up modern British and European cuisine and the Lounge bar, open until midnight, will serve cocktails and drinks from across the globe.

There are two meeting spaces which can host more than 90 guests and are equipped with LCD screens and wi-fi while a fitness centre offers space to escape the stress of business.

DoubleTree by Hilton London Excel’s general manager Ashley Cole said: “Situated nearby two of London’s largest international conference and entertainment centres, the hotel is a great base for visitors looking to explore London’s key attractions. Our modern guest rooms offer stunning views of the Royal Victoria Dock and easy accessibility to the city, via London’s first cable car.

The hotel is both owned and managed by Shiva Hotels and was formerly known as the Ramada Hotel and Suites Docklands.
