DoubleTree by Hilton Opens Fourth Hotel in Baltimore Area
MCLEAN, Va. - DoubleTree by Hilton today announced the opening of the newly renovated, upscale, full-service, 171-room DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Baltimore North - Pikesville. Formerly a Hilton, the hotel is owned and operated by Pikesville Hotel Limited Partnership, a division of the Mangione Family Enterprise under a franchise license agreement with a subsidiary of Hilton Worldwide.
As part of the brand transformation, renovations have been completed in all areas of the DoubleTree by Hilton Baltimore North - Pikesville. Guest rooms now feature new carpeting, window treatments, furniture and bedding, as well as Wolfgang Puck in-room gourmet coffee and tea service. Bathrooms were redone in their entirety, including granite countertops and new CITRON by Crabtree & Evelyn bath and body products.
Guests enjoy the hotel's resort-style amenities including complimentary use of the newly-renovated, state-of-the-art Baltimore Fitness and Tennis center with six indoor tennis courts that is adjacent to the hotel. Public space upgrades entail new, bold-patterned carpets, lighting and window treatments in the hotel's 11,800 square feet of meeting space, including the 6,860 square foot Preakness Ballroom. The lobby features modern and stylish furnishings, a fireplace, business center and guests relaxing at the seasonal outdoor pool are sure to enjoy the new deck furnishings.
"The DoubleTree by Hilton CARE culture is a natural fit for this hotel," said Bill Leonhardt, general manager. "Pikesville is the largest Orthodox Jewish community outside of New York, and our staff takes great care to understand and respond to the needs and traditions of our neighbors."
"The Baltimore market has fully embraced the DoubleTree by Hilton brand as evidenced by the success of our three other properties in this metro area," said Rob Palleschi, global head, DoubleTree by Hilton. "Baltimore is a major business and government hub for the region, as well as a robust leisure market with great family attractions and an active cruise terminal. Expanding our brand in the Baltimore suburbs is a smart move for DoubleTree by Hilton, and I am certain that the community will continue to appreciate our unique brand of genuine, caring service."
