WILLIAMSBURG, VA—DoubleTree by Hilton has opened the DoubleTree by Hilton Williamsburg here. Formerly a Marriott, the property recently concluded an $8.4-million renovation that included updates to all 295 guestrooms, public spaces and meeting areas.

Amenities include 45,000 sq. ft. of meeting space—including the newly renovated President’s Ballroom with 13,303 sq. ft. of space—s well as three in-house restaurants: The Harvest Grill, Pitcher’s and Williamsburg Internet Café. Guests can also enjoy the indoor and outdoor pools, as well as the hotel’s 24-hour fitness center and tennis courts. Additionally, the hotel offers complimentary WiFi access in public areas.
