Hilton (NYSE: HLT) has signed a franchise agreement with Abingdon Lodge Hotel Ltd, a subsidiary of Esher based Coldunell Ltd, to open a Hilton Garden Inn, Abingdon Oxford.
The existing Oxford Abingdon Hotel will undergo a comprehensive redevelopment, increasing the number of guest rooms by over 100% through a new four story extension. The 150 guest room hotel is expected to open in summer 2018 when the extension, which will include a new lounge bar, restaurant, function rooms and fitness centre, is due for completion. The existing hotel will remain open throughout the extension works, and current bedrooms will be fully renovated when the new wing is complete.
Hilton Garden Inn Abingdon Oxford joins 100 Hilton Garden Inn properties trading or under development in Europe.
Founded in 1959, Coldunell Ltd owns five hotels in the UK. The Oxford Abingdon Hotel's conversion to Hilton Garden Inn is part of a wider plan to improve Coldunell's current portfolio of hotels.
Hilton Garden Inn Abingdon Oxford will be situated on Marcham Road, Abingdon, Oxfordshire, OX14 1TZ.
