DoubleTree by Hilton became official June 15, 2011. Pamela Stoy, director of sales and marketing, says, “It gives us great pride to give our guests the comfort and extras of a full-service Hilton experience.”
The full service hotel and convention center features guest rooms and suites with new in-room touches, Hilton Sweet Dreams bedding and all new flat-screen HDTVs. Fiber optic cabling was installed for a Cyber Café in the lobby, and guests enjoy complimentary WiFi in all guest rooms and public areas, including Columbo’s Restaurant and Lounge.
Columbo’s Restaurant and Lounge is open seven days a week from 6 a.m. to midnight for all day dining. The daily bountiful breakfast buffet includes freshly prepared omelets. For lunch and dinner, enjoy the made-to-order pasta bar, homemade soups, appetizers, steaks, seafood and Southern specialty dishes like shrimp and grits, all served in a casually classy atmosphere at affordable prices.
Columbo’s Lounge also features specialty martinis and happy hour prices on favorite beverages daily. Appetizers, along with a full menu of sandwiches, steaks and Chef’s entrees, are available until midnight daily.
The Fitness Center is available by key access to all guests 24 hours a day. It features cardio and strength equipment, including free weights, as well as brand new flooring, mirrors and upgraded equipment.
In September 2012, the one-of-a-kind Hilton Honors Executive Lounge opened at DoubleTree by Hilton. Valued Gold and Diamond Hilton Honors members enjoy complimentary breakfast, social hour and desserts Monday through Friday in a private club environment with passkey access. Snacks, specialty coffees and an honor bar, along with a hostess, ensure every need is taken care of.
With 22,000 square feet of event space under one roof and 16 flexible meeting rooms, consider DoubleTree by Hilton for your next social function, reunion, group or wedding. From 10 to 1,000 people, DoubleTree can handle it all.
Conveniently situated at the crossroads of I-20 and I-26, DoubleTree by Hilton is centrally located and is just minutes from the Vista, the Capitol, downtown, museums, shopping, Riverbanks Zoo and other area attractions.
