Hilton Worldwide expanded their DoubleTree by Hilton portfolio earlier this year with the rebranding of the London Docklands Riverside site.
The former 17th century Wharf Building is situated on the Thames with views across to Canary Wharf, and is sited within London’s last dry dock for shipbuilding. It also boasts a private pier, the only London hotel to have one.
Fileturn were pleased to be appointed by Hilton Hotels to undertake another of theirhigh profile refurbishments, with the extensive and sensitive multi-million pound refurbishment of the period building.
ICA’s design drew inspiration from the site’s heritage mixing the modern comforts expected from a Hilton hotel, with the site’s historical maritime connection.
The project encompassed the complete transformation of two bedroom blocks comprising 264 bedroom suites, and the public areas: bar, restaurant, reception, meeting rooms and terrace.
The programme was tight and not without its challenges, none of which were new to Fileturn’s professional team, who are able to adapt quickly to changing situations.
All works were completed within time and on budget.
