Hilton Worldwide and DoubleTree by Hilton recently announced the official opening of the seventh DoubleTree by Hilton hotel in Minneapolis. The former Minneapolis Boulevard Hotel, located at 2200 Freeway Blvd., underwent a $4 million makeover, including multiple modern upgrades throughout the property, according to a news release.
The new DoubleTree by Hilton in Brooklyn Center offers guests easy access to nearby popular destinations, including Target Field, Mall of America, the Minneapolis Convention Center, the Shoppes of Arbor Lake and the National Sports Center. The 13-story hotel is also just minutes away from the city center and businesses such as Medtronic, BAS Systems, Cummings Power Generation and Boston Scientific.
“It is my distinct pleasure to welcome guests to this relaxed, contemporary urban retreat, where they will enjoy the award-winning service culture for which the DoubleTree by Hilton brand is known worldwide,” Robert Larson, general manager of the DoubleTree by Hilton Minneapolis North, said in a statement.
DoubleTree by Hilton Minneapolis North offers guests 147 rooms with modern, upgraded interior finishes; 24-hour business and fitness centers; an indoor pool; as well as 10,000 square feet of flexible function space, including two ballrooms. The hotel also features a Lombard American-themed restaurant and a Grants lobby bar, gift shop and on-site convenience store.
DoubleTree by Hilton Minneapolis North is owned by Texas-based Boxer Resorts and managed by Hilton Worldwide, and is a participant in the Hilton HHonors guest loyalty program.
“The addition of the DoubleTree by Hilton Minneapolis North is further affirmation of the growing presence of Hilton Worldwide in the Minneapolis – St. Paul market, where we now have more than 750 employees and 1,600 rooms under management,” said Tom Loughlin, area vice president of Hilton Worldwide.
