A phased programme of work on the hotel, now known as Doubletree by Hilton Dublin – Burlington Road, is due for completion by spring 2014.

Claiming to be the largest hotel in the M50 belt, the venue boasts 2,100 square metres of banqueting, ballroom space and conference facilities for up to 1,400 delegates.

As part of the improvements, the business floor at the hotel has been updated to include 18 conference suites and meeting rooms, each facilitating up to 100 delegates.

The 501 guestrooms will be upgraded with 42-inch flat-screen televisions and amenities including in-room coffee and tea and Crabtree & Evelyn bath products. The hotel’s restaurant options are also getting an overhaul, while the Mespil Bar will become an executive lounge and Bellini’s Bar will be renamed the B Bar.

John Greenleaf, global head of Doubletree by Hilton, which has more than 350 hotels in its portfolio, said, "With a fantastic location and boasting 41 years of prestigious history, this hotel is an outstanding addition to our portfolio."The rebrand follows the opening in Dublin of The Morrison, a Doubletree by Hilton hotel on Ormond Quay.
