Jurys Inn Chelsea becomes DoubleTree by Hilton

There's been a revamp and rebrand for Jurys Inn Chelsea. Earlier this month, the hotel opened as DoubleTree by Hilton London – Chelsea.

Jurys Inn still owns and operates the venue, which is now subject to a franchise arrangement with Hilton Worldwide.

Large-scale refurbishments have been carried out at the hotel, which boasts 172 guest rooms, during the last half-year.

The venue is two minutes away from Imperial Wharf station on foot, and provides easy access to the London Eye (pictured), Buckingham Palace and other tourist attractions via the tube. 

It features include refreshed bathrooms and guest bedrooms, which feature the Sweet Dreams by DoubleTree sleep experience.

Manager of Jurys Inn Chelsea is still running the venue, as is his team of people in hospitality jobs.

Hilton Worldwide president, EMEA, Simon Vincent, said prior to opening that the revamp to what was already a striking venue is set to inspire DoubleTree by Hilton customers to take-in London's many attractions.

The venue provides free guest Wi-Fi, room service and a restaurant called The Grill, which now has a revamped menu.

On arrival at a DoubleTree by Hilton hotel, guests are given warm chocolate chip cookies which are baked each day in house to a special recipe.

“This new franchise venture will see our Chelsea hotel leverage its prime London location under the DoubleTree by Hilton brand, optimising future revenues and delivering exceptional service to our guests," commented CEO of Jurys Inn Hotel Group, John Brennan.

Last month, Jurys Inn gave word that free guest Wi-Fi would be rolled out to each of its city centre hotels in the UK.

This came after an investment worth £1.7 million to upgrade technology and software.

As well as a standard free Wi-Fi option for guests, people who book via the Jurys Inn website can access a Premium Wi-Fi service for free, which will let them take-on heavier internet use like downloading large files.
