The Hilton Bath City hotel, regularly voted the ugliest building in central Bath, is to rebrand as a DoubleTree.

The hotel is currently undergoing a major refurbishment following its acquisition by Starwood Capital.  The refurbishment does not include major improvements to the facade unfortunately.

Reopening is currently scheduled for Monday 6th April.

A Hampton by Hilton is also planned for Bath and, at over 200 rooms, will be the biggest hotel in the city centre.  Opening is planned for 2022.

PS.  Remember that Hilton is still offering a status match as we explain here.
