The hotel management, Focus Hotels, has said that work is due to start at the hotel later this month and will take around five weeks to complete.
Following the refurbishment, the hotel will offer a larger events room with added windows that is “future-proofed” with energy-efficient IT and electrical upgrades.
Imran Ali, general manager, said: “The hotel has been wi-fi hybrid-ready for a long time and the ballroom upgrade will help set us on a firm foundation for the future. We were delighted when the owners agreed to make this significant investment which is a real vote of confidence in our hotel.”
“The work will involve increasing the capacity of the room and making it a lot more welcoming by adding windows to provide natural daylight. We are future-proofing it with energy-efficient IT and electrical upgrades and will end up with a facility that not only we can be very proud of, but which will also be of benefit to Bristol as a whole.”
Peter Cashman, CEO of Focus Hotels, added: “Conferences and events make a significant contribution to the overall revenue which is generated in many hotels and we welcome this investment in the DoubleTree by Hilton Bristol City Centre, which will enable it to compete for business it has not had the capacity to attract in the past and which will further help it on the road to recovery from the pandemic.”
