“As we look back on the years this very hotel has had an iconic presence in our community, it humbles me to think of the events, groups and holiday festivities that gathered in this building,” says Bruce Roy, general manager DoubleTree by Hilton Pittsburgh-Green Tree. “This property has been the first stop for many celebrities and dignitaries to Pittsburgh as well as the location for many high school dances, proms and weddings. It’s fun to see what major memories were made here.”
DoubleTree by Hilton Pittsburgh-Green Tree has a longstanding history of many famous faces that have visited and stayed at the hotel while in Pittsburgh. Every major sports team, a number of politicians, actors, musicians, athletes and comedians have graced the grounds of DoubleTree by Hilton Pittsburgh-Green Tree.
DoubleTree by Hilton Pittsburgh-Green Tree is preparing to undergo an extensive $17 million transformation of its 460 rooms to be completed early 2013. With rates starting at $109, the completely updated property will evoke the feeling of a grand mountain lodge and debut Seasons The Restaurant, Champions Club and Bistro Marketplace.
