Dallas—DoubleTree by Hilton has opened DoubleTree by Hilton Arlington DFW South, a five-story, 237-key property in Arlington, Texas, marking the brand’s eighth hotel located in the Dallas metroplex.
“As we continue to grow our portfolio throughout the greater Dallas areas, this beautifully renovated property perfectly illustrates our ongoing commitment to providing a warm and welcoming culture of hospitality for tourists and business travelers,” Dianna Vaughan, DoubleTree by Hilton’s global head & SVP, said in a prepared release. “We look forward to serving guests with our globally-renowned DoubleTree by Hilton services and capabilities.”
The hotel, which was formerly the Admiral Hotel, is owned by the Admiral Hotel Group LLC and managed by Hotel Equities. Before opening under the DoubleTree name, it underwent an extensive, $10 million renovation.
“With our transition to the DoubleTree by Hilton brand complete, our completely renovated facility is second to none in offering travelers to Arlington the finest features and amenities,” Jemel Jones, the hotel’s general manager, said in the release. “We are excited to provide guests with the globally recognized, high-quality service from DoubleTree by Hilton that they deserve.”
Located at 1507 N. Watson Road, the hotel is situated in close proximity to Six Flags Over Texas, AT&T Stadium, Globe Life Park and other attractions.
Guest rooms offer complimentary Wi-Fi, 40-inch HDTV, mini-refrigerator, coffeemaker and workspace; and many provide a pool view, patio or balcony. Amenities at the hotel include an outdoor pool, complimentary fitness center, a 24-hour business center, and free round trip shuttle to Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport. There’s also more than 6,000 square feet of flexible meeting space.
The hotel’s open-spaced lobby contains artwork and architectural styles that pay homage to Texas’ landscape and history, and features the Connectivity Zone, which is a floor-to-ceiling metal wall of TVs and decorative lighting.
