March 23, 2015 10:02am
MCLEAN, Va. – March 23, 2015 – DoubleTree by Hilton announced today that five of its most celebrated and distinguished hotels have joined the prestigious Historic Hotels of America organization. From the ground on which Harry S. Truman once waved the “Dewey Defeats Truman” headline to the property now recognized as the “Official Hotel of the Alamo,” these five storied historic hotels embody the spirit and legacy of DoubleTree by Hilton in their own communities. The official program of the National Trust for Historic Preservation®, Historic Hotels of America recognizes only the finest hotels for maintaining their authenticity, sense of place and architectural integrity. To qualify for the program, hotels must have historic significance, be at least 50 years old, be designated by the U.S. Secretary of the Interior as a National Historic Landmark or be listed in or eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places.
“From opening the first DoubleTree by Hilton in Scottsdale, Arizona in 1969 to celebrating the 300 millionth cookie given away at check-in last March, DoubleTree by Hilton has a long-standing legacy of delivering the ‘little things’ that create a better travel experience,” said John Greenleaf, global head, DoubleTree by Hilton. “Maintaining the history and heritage of these iconic hotels is just another way we strive to celebrate the cities in which our hotels are located and continue our commitment both to our guests and the local communities we serve. We’re honored to have these outstanding properties added to the esteemed Historic Hotels of America collection.”
With its diverse global portfolio of hotels, DoubleTree by Hilton is one of the fastest-growing hotel brands in the upscale, full service hotel category, recognized around the world for a service culture built around the idea of CARE, which stands for creating a rewarding experience for guests, team members and the community. Guests who have stayed at a DoubleTree by Hilton in recent years have seen a dramatic transformation of the brand's hotel experience through reinvestments by hotel owners and the brand in amenities, services and style, including historic landmarks.
“These legendary DoubleTree by Hilton hotels celebrate rich aspects of the heritage, history, transportation, and grand architectural accomplishments of the United States, and we are proud to welcome them as members of Historic Hotels of America,” said Lawrence Horwitz, executive director, Historic Hotels of America and Historic Hotels Worldwide.
Each DoubleTree by Hilton property inducted into Historic Hotels of America illustrates a standard of excellence for which the brand is known. The properties recognized by Historic Hotels of America include:
