DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel London - Docklands Riverside

Junson Capital has acquired the entire share capital of the company which owns the Doubletree by Hilton Hotel in London’s Docklands, in what is thought to be the first major hotel transaction by an overseas buyer in London since Brexit.

The Doubletree by Hilton Hotel, which comprises 378 rooms and has recently undergone a major refurbishment programme, was acquired from companies controlled by HIG for an undisclosed sum.

«This acquisition is thought to be the first major hotel transaction by an overseas buyer in London since the EU referendum, demonstrating that foreign capital still sees London as an attractive investment opportunity within the hotel sector,» said Marc Finney, Head of Hotels & Resorts Consulting at Colliers International, who advised on the purchase.

Anchored by Family Funds

In addition, Colliers’ Capital Advisory team assisted Junson with debt financing for the acquisition.

Headquartered in Hong Kong, Junson Capital is an investment management company with multiple investment strategies and a global footprint. Anchored by family funds, its business covers real estate, financial assets and private equity.
