WIlliamsburg, VA (PRWEB) August 21, 2013
Following a property-wide renovation, the all-new DoubleTree by Hilton Williamsburg officially kicked off its much-anticipated grand opening by welcoming an overflow crowd of local business and civic leaders.
Those in attendance were among the first to tour the completely transformed property following an $8.4-million renovation of its 295 guest rooms, 45,000 square feet of meeting and event spaces and all public areas. Included in the renovation is the refreshed, 13,300-square-foot President’s Ballroom, the largest ballroom in the area.
“The property is a refreshing addition to Williamsburg,” says Bob Harris of the Greater Williamsburg Chamber & Tourism Alliance. “The all-new look of the hotel is absolutely off the charts!”
A September preview of the property for travel professionals and meeting planners also is being planned.
With its transformation complete, the DoubleTree by Hilton Williamsburg is positioned to be the leading full-service hotel in the market attracting groups of all sizes and families from throughout the mid-Atlantic region, according to Tom Custo, general manager of the DoubleTree by Hilton Williamsburg.
"We’re close to Historic Williamsburg, two miles from the Prime Outlets Mall and the closest hotel to the Busch Gardens Theme Park,” he says. “Plus, our three in-house restaurants, indoor and outdoor pools, 24-hour fitness center and tennis courts give families and business travelers an unmatched hospitality experience.”
Guests at the all-new hotel also are greeted with a warm, chocolate chip cookie welcome, an experience exclusive to the DoubleTree by Hilton brand. Guest rooms at the DoubleTree by Hilton Williamsburg include a refreshing array of CITRON body care products by Crabtree & Evelyn, the signature Sweet Dreams bed and an assortment of gourmet in-room tea and coffee offerings. The property also offers complimentary Wi-Fi access in its public areas.
The DoubleTree by Hilton Williamsburg is owned by Waramaug Hospitality LLC and a private investment group in a joint venture with Interstate Hotels & Resorts which also operates the hotel.
