Seven new hotels opened in the first quarter of 2019 have given DoubleTree by Hilton a kick-start to its latest expansion programme to complement what it says has been “substantial international growth” over the past decade.
The brand now boasts more than 560 upmarket properties in key worldwide destinations after starting the programme in 2008 with the simultaneous opening of two properties in Costa Rica from a base of 160 hotels.
DoubleTree now operates in 45 countries across six continents, including the two recently-opened DoubleTree by Hilton Miami Doral in Florida and DoubleTree by Hilton Kocaeli in Turkey.
Senior vice-president and global head Shawn McAteer said: “We’re thrilled DoubleTree continues to thrive as one of the fastest-growing brands in the Hilton portfolio.
“Although guests can expect award-winning hospitality at every DoubleTree by Hilton, each property provides special experiences from access to natural hot springs to sustainable dining that helps to rebuild the honey bee population.”
This year also marks 50 years since the first DoubleTree by Hilton hotel opened in Phoenix in 1969.
