Hilton Worldwide Opens DoubleTree in Pittsburgh

PITTSBURGH—Hilton Worldwide has unveiled the opening of the DoubleTree by Hilton Pittsburgh-Cranberry, the brand’s sixth property in the metropolitan Pittsburgh area.

Formerly a Four Points by Sheraton, the hotel has commenced a multi-million dollar transformation as part of its rebranding effort that includes contemporary design updates across the property, a new food and beverage concept and additional enhancements to its newly-updated guest rooms. Renovations are scheduled for completion by late August 2015.

The hotel has undergone new leadership that includes ownership by Elmhurst Group and DiCicco Development, Inc., and management by Prospera Hospitality, all Pittsburgh-based companies.

“At DoubleTree by Hilton, we strive to offer guests the ‘little things’ that add up to create a rewarding travel experience—starting with our warm chocolate chip cookie welcome and continuing through all touch points of our guests’ stay,” stated John Greenleaf, global head, DoubleTree by Hilton. “With the guidance of the hotel’s committed and passionate new leadership team, DoubleTree by Hilton Pittsburgh Cranberry is poised to become the premier full-service hotel choice for business and leisure travelers in the market.”

Through its ongoing renovations, DoubleTree by Hilton Pittsburgh Cranberry will implement several exciting enhancements in the coming months including the addition of a new porte-cochere and an expansive, contemporary lobby featuring warm wood accents, natural sunlight and beautiful green space. The hotel’s recently-renovated 189 guest rooms will also see further improvements, including the addition of the luxurious Sweet Dreams® by DoubleTree sleep experience. The hotel’s expansive meeting and events space – which currently boasts over 23,000 square feet of meeting space and the second largest ballroom in the market – will be fully renovated to better meet the needs of clients and accommodate all types of gatherings, from intimate to large. The restaurant will also be revamped into a Made Market, DoubleTree by Hilton’s exclusive food and beverage concept featuring made-to-order specialties, homemade favorites and locally-inspired dishes.
