ARLINGTON, Texas—DoubleTree by Hilton, one of Hilton Worldwide’s 13 brands, has unveiled its first property in the bustling Dallas suburb of Arlington and its eighth throughout the Dallas metroplex.
DoubleTree by Hilton Arlington DFW South opens just a few miles from the community’s Entertainment district following an extensive, $10 million renovation, giving visitors to the area’s many sports and entertainment venues an ideally situated upscale lodging choice.
Less than five miles from Six Flags Over Texas, AT&T Stadium, Globe Life Park, and other attractions, the 237-room, five-story property offers wide-ranging amenities and more than 6,000 square feet of flexible meeting space, all designed to serve the needs of leisure and business travelers. Formerly the Admiral Hotel, it is owned by Admiral Hotel Group LLC and managed by Hotel Equities.
“As we continue to grow our portfolio throughout the greater Dallas areas, this beautifully renovated property perfectly illustrates our ongoing commitment to providing a warm and welcoming culture of hospitality for tourists and business travelers,” said Dianna Vaughan, senior vice president and global head, DoubleTree by Hilton. “We look forward to serving guests with our globally-renowned DoubleTree by Hilton services and capabilities.”
Each stay at the DoubleTree by Hilton Arlington DFW South begins with a warm DoubleTree by Hilton chocolate chip cookie greeting, which signifies the brand’s industry-recognized service culture built around the idea of CARE, which stands for Create a Rewarding Experience for guests, Team Members and the community.
From the moment they step into the welcoming, open-spaced lobby, visitors will see evidence of the property’s extensive renovation, with design treatments, artwork and architectural styles that pay homage to Texas landscape and history. The lobby’s Connectivity Zone features a floor-to-ceiling metal wall of TVs and decorative lighting, the perfect spot to socialize or explore online.
Guest rooms offer complimentary Wi-Fi, a 40-inch HDTV, mini-refrigerator, coffeemaker, and workspace; and many provide a pool view, patio or balcony. Whether featuring one king bed or two queen beds, each room provides guests with the DoubleTree Sweet Dreams Sleep Experience.
