CDLHT marked its maiden entry into the European market with the acquisition of Hilton Cambridge City Centre (formerly known as Cambridge City Hotel), United Kingdom in October 2015.

The property is a newly-refurbished upper upscale hotel with 198 rooms and arguably the best located hotel in Cambridge. It boasts a prime location in the heart of Cambridge city centre, being 1.6 kilometres from Cambridge railway station and is situated beside the main thoroughfare. It is also within the vicinity of popular tourist destinations such as King's College, The Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge University Botanic Garden and Trinity College. Grand Arcade Shopping Centre, the city's largest shopping mall, is also adjacent to the property.

The hotel's extensive suite of facilities includes three food & beverage outlets, gym and meetings/events space for up to 200 people. The hotel has been rejuvenated following an £8.2 million phased refurbishment programme involving its 198 rooms and public areas. This refurbishment was completed in April 2015.

CDLHT has appointed Hilton to provide management services. On 15 December 2015, following the completion of certain conversion works and re-launch activities, the hotel was rebranded as Hilton Cambridge City Centre.
