Historic Cheltenham Park Hotel Joins DoubleTree by Hilton
Hilton (NYSE: HLT) The Cheltenham Park Hotel is set to become part of one of the UK's top hotel brands, DoubleTree by Hilton under the management of M&T Hotel Management. Following an extensive £4.5m refurbishment the hotel will trade as DoubleTree by Hilton Cheltenham in March 2017. Situated in Charlton Kings, the property will become the first hotel in the Hilton portfolio of brands to open in Cheltenham.
Sir David Michels, Owner of Cheltenham Park Hotel, said, "Having a well-known brand on the door along with the recent investment programme will deliver an exceptional hotel to Cheltenham. It is an exciting time for the property and all involved and we are looking forward to bringing the DoubleTree by Hilton brand to the town."
The hotel's refurbishment includes all 148 bedrooms and the addition of three new upmarket suites. The hotel will also feature 520 square metres of refurbished event space including the Park Suite which caters for up to 320 guests and offers outstanding views over the Lilley Brook Lake and Golf Course, making it the ideal choice for conference and meetings organisers and large social occasions and weddings.
General Manager of Cheltenham Park Hotel, Syed Zaidi, said, "The transformation of this much loved hotel into DoubleTree by Hilton Cheltenham marks a new chapter for this Grade II listed property. We are thrilled to be nearing the end of our exciting multi-million-pound refurbishment and the hotel team are really looking forward to working with one of the world's leading hospitality brand."
Located in the picturesque Gloucestershire countryside, DoubleTree by Hilton Cheltenham will be surrounded by acres of parkland. It is situated, with less than two miles from the town centre and three miles from the world-famous Cheltenham racecourse.
Patrick Fitzgibbon, senior vice president, development, EMEA, Hilton, said: "DoubleTree by Hilton has added more than 30 hotels since its introduction to the UK market. The brand has been particularly successful in conversions of heritage properties, including DoubleTree by Hilton Liverpool, DoubleTree by Hilton London Kensington and now this spectacular addition in Cheltenham. We're thrilled to have Sir David Michels join as an owner and look forward to continuing our relationship with him on the hotel."
Guests will be able to relax in the newly refurbished leisure club which boasts state of the art equipment in the town's largest hotel gym together with a 15m pool and four newly updated beauty therapy rooms.
The public bars and Lilley Brook lounge will also undergo a complete transformation in the New Year and the hotel will also open a Starbucks in the lounge which will be operated by the hotel and be open to both guests and residents.
