Newark Metropolitan Hotel is pleased to announce the upcoming conversion of its property to the DoubleTree by Hilton, Newark, Ohio.

The hotel’s launch date as an official, full-service DoubleTree by Hilton is slated for July 2014. After it joins the prestigious DoubleTree by Hilton portfolio, the hotel will continue to be locally owned by The Jerry McClain Company, and locally managed by Columbus Hospitality Management. The portfolio focuses on high-end properties with unique physical qualities.

“Becoming part of the DoubleTree by Hilton portfolio is a great move for us,” said Kendra Proudfit, General Manager. “We’re proud to represent the brand’s unique, welcoming approach to hospitality, and we’re excited to give our guests an even more incredible experience in Newark.”

The hotel assures guests that all reservations and group contracts already in place will be fully honored even after the conversion. This alleviates many guests’ concerns about potential price increases due to the change.

One of the most popular hotels in Newark, Newark Metropolitan Hotel is transforming its indoor heated pool and fitness center. It will soon be a 24-hour, state-of-the-art fitness center featuring ample Precor® equipment.

As part of the conversion, the property will undergo further renovations, which include:

  • Upgraded amenities and posh bedding in all 117 guest rooms and suites
  • New tile flooring in all guest rooms and suite bathrooms
  • Expanded breakfast buffet at the on-site Elements Local Bistro restaurant, offering a wider variety of food choices
