Tampa, Florida (PRWEB) September 29, 2014
One of Tampa’s long-time landmarks, The DoubleTree Suites by Hilton, located in Rocky Point and operated by Crescent Hotels & Resorts, announces the completion of a multi-phased $6 million renovation. The project transformed the entire property, from the front entrance to the 7th floor, leaving no areas untouched, including the 5,800 square feet of meeting and events space. The project’s goal was to allow the hotel guests to discover an exciting new design transformation of the hotel restaurant, lounge, public spaces and guest rooms.
DoubleTree Suites is located on the water, offering astonishing views from the moment you arrive. “This total revitalization positions the hotel as one of the most desirable venues and places to stay in Tampa”, says Michael George, CEO of Crescent Hotels & Resorts. “We are thrilled to re-introduce this distinguished landmark hotel to the Tampa Bay area and its visitors”.
The 203 suites combine new and refined texture and luxurious signature Sweet Dreams® bedding. Each suite was re-created to add elegance and sophistication through the use of bright airy tones, rich wood furnishings, marble textures, and sleek and new televisions. The suites have dramatic natural lighting and a contemporary palette. Each suite is 550+ square feet and includes opulent living areas, wet bars with the comforts of home, office inspired work areas and serene views of the surrounding bay.
The hotel offers 5,800 sq. feet of versatile event spaces ranging from intimate board rooms, to an expansive conference space and enclosed climate controlled terrace tent which also overlooks the bay. The sales and catering team is inventive and accommodating and offers expertise in corporate events and social functions. A 24-hour “grab-and-go” outlet located in the main lobby serves tastes and treats for late night snacking or guests on the go. The business center includes four new work stations and two printing stations.
Originally opened as The Pickett Suites in 1986 and reflagged in 1999, The DoubleTree Suites by Hilton Tampa Bay has hosted celebrities and discerning guests for nearly thirty years. The renovation represents a rebirth and resurgence of this areas unique architecture and is an imperative part of the overall experience at Rocky Point.
