|HOUSTON - June 29, 2004 -- The Doubletree(R) Hotel Houston-Allen Center,
located in the heart of the "new" downtown Houston, today announced the
beginning of a $5 million hotelwide renovation, which is anticipated to
be completed in the first quarter of 2005. When the project is finished,
this Doubletree hotel will offer guests a new health club as well as a
renovated ballroom, refurbished guest room bathrooms and significant upgrades
to the hotel's services and amenities.
Upon conclusion of the renovation, the atmosphere at the Doubletree Hotel Houston-Allen Center will reflect an elegant, transitional style that is rich in warm colors and millwork. The hotel ballroom will undergo a complete makeover with the height of the ceiling being raised from 11 feet to an overall height of 13 1/2 feet. Three custom-designed, fluted, oval chandeliers will grace the newly raised ceiling of the ballroom. New wall and floor coverings for the ballroom will reflect a regal red and gold color scheme with the carpet featuring stylized floral patterns with geometric accents. In addition, the ballroom's pre-function space will also be refurbished in a style and manner that allows it to flow smoothly in to the ballroom with corresponding carpeting, chandeliers and furniture.
A new Fitness Center will be built on the 4th floor of the Doubletree Hotel Houston-Allen Center. The new Fitness Center will feature city and courtyard views from floor to ceiling windows and will have state-of-the-art workout equipment.
