DUBLIN, IRELAND–Ireland's first DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel, a full-service brand of Hilton Worldwide, has opened here.
The 138-room Morrison Dublin, a DoubleTree by Hilton, was formerly known as the Morrison Hotel, owned and operated by Martinez Hotels & Resorts. Martinez, which manages the property under a long-term agreement with Hilton Worldwide, completed a $9.5 million refurbishment of the property as part of the negotiation to convert it to the DoubleTree brand.
Dublin-based designer Nikki O'Donnell oversaw the renovation. O'Donnell's design concept centered around the themes of music and sound.
