LARGO, MD—Government officials, hotel clients and guests gathered to celebrate the grand opening of the DoubleTree by Hilton Largo/Washington DC. The hotel is owned by Frontier Development & Hospitality Group LLC and managed by Crescent Hotels & Resorts.
The official ribbon cutting included County Executive Rushern Baker, Frontier Development’s Evens Charles, Capstone’s Norm Jenkins, Prince George’s Chamber of Commerce’s David Harrington, Hilton Worldwide’s Charles Gremillion and Crescent Hotels & Resorts’ Sami Zeitoun. The AD Project, a local jazz band, played at the event.
Joseph Galvan, the hotel’s GM, said, “Because we wanted to showcase that the DoubleTree is part of a bigger family, the Crescent Hotels family, we brought in award-winning chefs from our other Washington, DC-area hotels to share in the festivities. By doing so, we offered various food stations representing the diversity of the Washington, DC, region.” The function space, all located on one floor, is large enough to accommodate meetings up to 170 attendees.
Guests were given a complete tour of the hotel with the first stop at the XC Bar & Bistro. “The design of the restaurant and its adjacent lounge, with its openness, makes for an inviting place to relax for overnight guests as well as locals,” said Galvan. Just outside the XC Lounge is patio seating anchored by a fire pit as a focal point.
All 184 guestrooms have been designed and outfitted with a chic, contemporary look and feel, according to the company. The hotel offers a state-of-the-art fitness center and indoor pool.
Because of the hotels proximity to Washington, DC (less than nine miles), the hotel offers complimentary shuttle service to Metrorail’s Blue Line. The shuttle also runs to area restaurants, shopping and entertainment opportunities. The hotel is also close to FedEx Field and Joint Base Andrews, the home to Air Force One.
