DoubleTree by Hilton targets high growth in Asia Pacific region

by | Mar 13, 2019 | Projects

In an effort to expand its global footprint, DoubleTree by Hilton focuses on Asia Pacific, currently the world’s top performing hospitality market.

DoubleTree by Hilton continues to work on expanding its global footprint and specifically its presence in the Asia Pacific region.

In fact, nearly half of the brand’s 200 planned hotels are in this area which is the world’s largest hospitality market.

Fourteen new DoubleTree by Hilton properties are slated to open this year across China, Thailand, Indonesia, Australia, Sri Lanka and New Zealand.

They will add to the close to 560 existing DoubleTree by Hilton properties currently in its global portfolio which spans across 45 countries.

Growth strategy in Asia Pacific

DoubleTree’s plans in the Asia Pacific market will see the brand aggressively expanding while still looking to offer the region’s thriving business and tourism the same upscale travel experience (and warm cookie during arrival) it offers the rest of the world.

“As DoubleTree by Hilton celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2019, we are eager to continue providing guests in the Asia Pacific region and around the world with our outstanding DoubleTree hospitality,” said Shawn McAteer, senior vice president and global head, DoubleTree by Hilton.

“By opening hotels such as DoubleTree by Hilton Weerawila Rajawarna Resort, our first property in Sri Lanka, our brand continues to maintain its commitment to innovation and the gold standard for hospitality for guests around the world,” he elaborates.

From exploring the vibrant cultural hub of Perth, Australia at DoubleTree by Hilton Perth – Northbridge, to experiencing the eclectic metropolis of Surabaya, Indonesia at DoubleTree by Hilton Surabaya, each DoubleTree property will provide both leisure and business travellers access to key cultural and business centres across Asia Pacific.

Hilton is leading the hotel construction pipeline in China, with DoubleTree by Hilton being our second fastest-growing brand in the region with more than 100 planned projects and an aggregate of close to 27,000 rooms,” said Sean Wooden, vice president of brand management, Asia Pacific, Hilton.

“While we reached a tremendous milestone of 50 DoubleTree by Hilton properties in Asia Pacific in 2018, we look forward to continuing our upward trajectory of growth with 14 DoubleTree by Hilton properties opening this year. These properties further our mission to be the most hospitable company in the world as we demonstrate our commitment by being where our guests want to travel across the region,” he goes on to say.
