Brussels, Belgium - DoubleTree by Hilton Brussels City, an eight-story hotel located just minutes from Brussels Grand Place, the Royal Gallery of Saint Hubert and more of the city’s main attractions, opened today in Brussels. The hotel is owned and developed by Swedish real-estate company Pandox AB and features 354 rooms.
David Kelly, senior vice president, Continental Europe, Hilton, said, “We are thrilled to bring DoubleTree by Hilton to Belgium with our trusted partners Pandox AB. This hotel, with its striking design features and incredible central location, is the perfect way to expand on our portfolio of Belgian properties and an exceptional hotel with which to introduce DoubleTree by Hilton’s warm hospitality to both leisure and business travelers in Brussels. This latest opening is indicative of growing confidence in the recovery of Belgium’s tourism market and is proof of our commitment to driving that recovery forward.”
“Extensively refurbished by Swedish design Studio Doos Architects, the hotel’s communal areas feature stylised artwork, Art Déco-era chevrons and ‘pops’ of gold, orange and black in homage to its colourful history, all design choices which reveal the spirit of the place.” said Charles Boelen, general manager. “All rooms and suites were refurbished on both a technical and aesthetic level, by Bergman Design House of London, establishing simultaneously an authentic and modern vibe with bold, playful design details. Historic inspiration, contemporary style: a few references to Art Deco and its distinctive curves are sneaked here and there, whilst adding a fair touch of modernity.”
The fully renovated and refurbished hotel features 17 conference rooms, covering an overall area of no less than 2000 m², a fitness center and sauna as well as a self-service shop by Wundermart.
DoubleTree by Hilton Brussels City is located at Rue Gineste 3, 1210 Brussels, a stone’s throw away from Gare du Nord, with a direct train line to Brussels International Airport. On one side of the hotel you will find the Botanic Park with its blooming vegetation, an oasis full of native and exotic trees, along with garden roses. On the other, Place Rogier, with over 44,000 m² of office space, Brussels’ pedestrianised shopping streets, quirky brasseries and bars, with easy access to the European Institutions and the city’s Northern business district.
