Big news in the London Hotel realm – the Mint Hotels in London have been taken over by Hilton Doubletree.
From USA Today:
Hilton Worldwide has added two, modern Central London hotels to its 275-location Doubletree by Hilton chain.
Both hotels belonged to the stylish, eight-property Mint Hotels chain across the Netherlands and the UK that Hilton Worldwide is adding to its portfolio in the coming months. The rest will become either Doubletrees or Hilton Garden Inns.
The 583-room hotel Mint Hotel near the Tower of London and Tower Bridge is now called the Doubletree by Hilton London-Tower of London.
The 460-room Mint Hotel adjacent to the Tate Britain museum and near Houses of Parliament is now called the Doubletree by Hilton London-Westminster.
The Mint Hotel in Westminster is actually on our list of hotels to stay in next year – mostly because every room comes with a free to use iMac. We wonder if Hilton will continue such largesse once they take over fully.
