Top growth regions for DoubleTree
DoubleTree will see by far the most growth overall in APAC – 51 hotel projects with 12,136 rooms are in the works here. A staggering 32 of these schemes have been earmarked for China alone, making it the brand’s most dynamic national growth market.
The Middle East comes in a distant second place with 16 ongoing projects and 3,256 keys. Six of these properties will open in Saudi Arabia and bring 938 rooms to the Kingdom, while another four hotels are planned in the UAE, adding 1,026 keys to the Emirates’ offering.

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.
