Who is DoubleTree?
DoubleTree is an American upscale hotel and resort chain and part of the Hilton Worldwide franchise. It was founded in 1969 with the opening of the first DoubleTree hotel in Scottsdale, Arizona. Since then, the hotel chain expanded throughout the country, first in Arizona and then across the United States. In 1999, DoubleTree and its partners were purchased by Hilton Hotels. In 2011, Hilton decided to rebrand the hotel chain as "DoubleTree by Hilton".
Today, DoubleTree is renowned for its upscale hotels which are conveniently located in must-visit cities around the world. DoubleTree markets its hotels for both business and leisure stays. Although many DoubleTree hotels are purpose-built to be modern, practical and spacious, DoubleTree has purchased several historic hotels around the world too. These highly prized members of the DoubleTree portfolio include many stunning Victorian properties in the UK. In total, DoubleTree operates 587 hotel properties in 47 different countries and territories, including the Americas, Europe and Asia. DoubleTree is particularly famous for their chocolate chip cookie welcome, with 1 sweet treat per customer (although you can sweet talk an extra).
