New Hilton Curio hotel launches in London – 100 Queens Gate

The DoubleTree London Kensington has formally rebranded as a Curio property, under the name ‘100 Queen’s Gate Hotel‘.

Curio is Hilton’s brand for upmarket independent hotels which do not want to follow Hilton’s ‘by the book’ operating manuals but still want to tap into Hilton’s marketing clout and the 100 million Hilton Honors membership base.  We have reviewed a few Curio hotels (see Ibiza here and see Boston here) and have been impressed.

Following a substantial refurbishment it looks, at least from the images, pretty good.  There are three food and beverage outlets – an all-day dining brasseries, a cocktail bar called ESQ and Botanica, an atrium space which will serve afternoon tea.

In terms of location it is very, very close to the South Kensington museums and about 90 seconds walk from South Kensington tube station.  The Albert Hall is also a gentle stroll away if you are attending an event.

The hotel website is here if you want to find out more.
