MCLEAN, Va. - Hilton Worldwide today announced the signing of a new hotel in Halifax, Nova Scotia: The Hollis Halifax - A DoubleTree Suites by Hilton. The 120-room all-suite hotel, formerly a Radisson Suite Hotel, is currently undergoing renovation and is expected to be fully converted by early September.
