The Jurys Inn Custom House Dublin will undergo a rebrand as a Hilton Garden hotel at the cost of €5.5 million.
The hotel is owned by Amaris Hospitality, the hotel company run by Lone Star Funds. Its rooms will be upgraded to reach the Hilton Garden standards, the first of its kind in Ireland.
John Brennan, chief executive of Amaris Hospitality, said the overhaul will give the hotel more business through the Hilton.com website. "Changing Jurys Custom House to Hilton Garden Inn will give it a much more diverse client base,” he told the Irish Times.

The refurbishment will include the addition of safes, air conditioning and fridges to every room, upgrades to bathrooms and a large fireplace in the public area.
The Jurys Inn chain became part of the Amaris Hospitality group in July this year, which comprises 89 hotels from four discrete portfolios. Jurys was taken over by US-based Lone Star Funds in a €900 million deal earlier this year.
