McLEAN, VA and Dartford UK - DoubleTree by Hilton, UK's fastest growing upscale brand, and a part of the Hilton's (NYSE: HLT) portfolio, today announced the opening of the DoubleTree by Hilton Dartford Bridge.

Following a £1.2million pound investment the hotel offers eight fully refurbished meeting rooms, ideal for hosting conferences, meetings, weddings and social events.
