VALLEY FORGE, PA—The Dow Hotel Co. is now managing the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Philadelphia-Valley Forge.
Dow will oversee an approximately $1-million upgrade of the hotel’s 25,000 sq. ft. of meeting space and lobby. The hotel also is receiving the finishing touches of a makeover of the exterior facade, including new roof line accents, trim detail, updated colors and LED lighting. All improvements are expected to be completed by September.
According to Murray L. Dow II, DHC founder and president, the hotel "has untapped potential as a market leading social/meeting location, which we are addressing immediately with this upgrade and aggressive marketing.”
The meeting space renovation will concentrate primarily on the 7,021-sq.-ft. Grand Ballroom, capable of handling up to 1,000 guests. The upgrade will incorporate an energy-efficient, LED lighting package that generates saturated color and dynamic effects. The lobby will be refreshed with connectivity zones and communal tables.
The DoubleTree Philadelphia-Valley Forge features a fitness center, swimming pool, T. Burke’s Bistro Pub and adjacent lounge. The hotel’s 327 rooms and suites offer an array of amenities, including the Sweet Dreams Bed and large screen HDTVs.
Located near the King of Prussia Mall and 25 minutes from center city Philadelphia, the DoubleTree Philadelphia-Valley Forge is situated five miles from Valley Forge National Park.
