CHANDLER, Ariz. - DoubleTree by Hilton Phoenix Chandler opens August 6 following a 24-month, multimillion-dollar renovation, joining DoubleTree by Hilton, one of Hilton’s 17 world-class brands. The newly upgraded 160-room hotel, formerly an independent hotel, is located along the I-10 and conveniently off the Chandler Blvd. exit.

“The addition of the DoubleTree by Hilton brand to our community is a great indicator that Chandler continues to be a thriving destination for businesses and tourism,” said Kevin Hartke, mayor of Chandler. “We’re thrilled to welcome DoubleTree by Hilton Phoenix Chandler in west Chandler, our second largest employment corridor. The development will provide full-service accommodations in our community, adding to the growing economy and drawing more business and leisure travelers to Chandler.”
