FLAGSTAFF, AZ—DoubleTree by Hilton recently opened DoubleTree by Hilton Flagstaff following a nine-month, multi-million dollar renovation.

The newly upgraded 183-room property, formerly an independent hotel, is located along Route 66, two miles from historic downtown Flagstaff, and just five miles from Flagstaff Pulliam Airport and 140 miles from Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. The hotel is owned by Uniwell Corporation and managed by Granite Hospitality.

DoubleTree by Hilton Flagstaff provides a modern-rustic design inspired by the region's natural surroundings. The property-wide renovation, led by Los Angeles-based Level 3 Design Group, includes comprehensive updates and new furnishings throughout all of the public areas and guestrooms.

The hotel's open and airy design is complemented by accents such as natural rock and wood features and a see-through fireplace that serves as the focal point of a cozy lobby/lounge area. Artwork displayed throughout the hotel reflects the landscape of Flagstaff, and guestrooms offer serene views of the nearby pine forest and sprawling mountains of Arizona.

“We are excited to announce our brand's entry into Flagstaff with this opening," stated John Greenleaf, global head, DoubleTree by Hilton. “Flagstaff is a rich destination for both business and leisure travelers, and we look forward to catering to guests seeking an upscale, full-service hotel offering and the unparalleled service culture for which the DoubleTree by Hilton brand is known-starting with the warm chocolate chip cookie welcome upon arrival.

DoubleTree by Hilton Flagstaff offers 6,500 sq. ft. of meeting and banquet facilities, including seven meeting rooms ranging in size from 460 sq. ft. to a 3,900-sq.-ft. Grand Ballroom, which can accommodate up to 400 people.
