DoubleTree by Hilton Enters 50th Country with First Hotel in Germany
The upscale brand hits major milestone with opening of DoubleTree by Hilton Frankfurt Niederrad
MCLEAN, Va. and FRANKFURT, Germany - Today, DoubleTree by Hilton celebrates its latest milestone as the brand enters its 50th country and marks its debut in Germany with the opening of DoubleTree by Hilton Frankfurt Niederrad. The milestone opening and first property in market demonstrates DoubleTree’s successful global growth strategy, as the brand has close-to-quadrupled in size during the past decade.
Over the past 50 years, the brand has experienced rapid global expansion and continues to serve as a symbol of hospitality for business and leisure travelers around the world. DoubleTree by Hilton now has more than 615 properties with over 141,000 rooms, with recent openings in unique destinations including DoubleTree by Hilton Surabaya (Indonesia), DoubleTree by Hilton Santiago Kennedy (Chile) and DoubleTree by Hilton Perth Waterfront (Australia). The brand also has a robust global pipeline of more than 200 properties including DoubleTree by Hilton Cote des Arcadins Beach Resort & Spa (Haiti), Doubletree by Hilton Rome Monti (Italy) and DoubleTree by Hilton Putrajaya Lakeside (Malaysia).
“DoubleTree by Hilton is one of the portfolio’s fastest growing brands and we are delighted to celebrate the 50th country milestone and our first hotel in Germany,” said Shawn McAteer, global brand head, DoubleTree by Hilton. “We look forward to expanding our global footprint to develop more properties in key destinations, from overwater bungalows in sought-after resort locations to high rise rooftop bars with 360-degree views of major city skylines.”
One of the major factors behind the brand’s successful expansion over the past decade is the increase of conversions of non-Hilton properties, with DoubleTree by Hilton Frankfurt Niederrad serving as a prime example. In fact, 64 percent of DoubleTree by Hilton’s global properties are conversions, including the most recently opened DoubleTree conversions - DoubleTree by Hilton Noumea Ilot Maitre Resort (New Caledonia) and DoubleTree by Hilton Lubbock (Texas).
