Plans are in for an expansion of the Hilton Greenwich Hotel on Catherine Grove.

The extension would see 42 additional rooms and car parking. The building recently opened as a hotel. Maurice Drummond House was originally constructed as police accommodation in the 1930s.

The expansion should be welcome news to local business who could capitalise on increased visitor numbers.



It’s far from the only hotel either underway or planned in Greenwich:

The site is almost directly next to the former Greenwich Magistrates Court, where plans have been submitted for a 300-room hotel and tower.

Magistrates Court plan

Travelodge – A 300 room Travelodge on the Peninsula is planned.

Blackwall tunnel approach – formerly planned as an Ibis. Work halted. Now a Holiday Inn with revised plans increasing the number of rooms from 50 to 68.

Holiday Inn – Another nearby Holiday Inn has plans for an expansion with 35 more rooms.



North Pole pub – there were plans for a 30-bed hotel to rear of pub. Possibly being revised to housing.

Intercontinental – A new event space is being added.
