DoubleTree’s must-follow hotel projects
DoubleTree Suites by Hilton Bahrain Juffair will be part of an upscale, mixed-use development by SilverFox Studios in the capital city, Manama. Set to open in late 2021, the 356-room hotel is expected to appeal to long-stay corporate and leisure guests. The property will offer a host of welcoming amenities including three restaurants, a lobby lounge, two meeting rooms, an outdoor pool and ‘his and hers’ health clubs.
Just outside Vancouver, meanwhile, DoubleTree by Hilton South Surrey will be part of a dual-branded property. The 250-room hotel is currently undergoing extensive renovations to give it a more contemporary feel; IBI Group Canada, the architectural firm tasked with the revamp, has shared renderings of an impressive new outdoor plaza, modern interiors, and a 41,200 sq ft conference and meeting space. A preliminary opening date has not yet been confirmed.
Elsewhere, DoubleTree by Hilton Downtown Abilene in Texas is set to open by mid-2022, near the city’s downtown area. The property will boast 206 spacious guestrooms, a full-service restaurant, a bar and lounge, and 38,700 sq ft of public meeting space, complementing the 130,000 sq ft already offered at the nearby Abilene Convention Center.
