A DoubleTree By Hilton Edinburgh will open in the city centre following refurbishment of the former Point Hotel.

The DoubleTree Bristol City Centre is due to open this spring close to Bristol Temple Meads railway station following conversion of a former Jarvis hotel.

And the former Nottingham Gateway Hotel will re-open as a DoubleTree by Hilton. All will be operated under franchise agreements.

DoubleTree by Hilton global head John Greenleaf said: "We are delighted to be expanding our brand in this market following an outstanding year for British tourism in 2012."
