WASHINGTON, PA (March 22, 2011)—Hospitality Ventures, a privately owned hotel ownership and management firm headquartered in Atlanta, today announced the opening of the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Pittsburgh – Meadow Lands in Washington, Pennsylvania. Third-party managed by Hospitality Ventures, LLC, the 138-room DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Pittsburgh – Meadow Lands has been converted from a Holiday Inn. The hotel is located at 340 Racetrack Road, adjacent to The Meadows Race Track and Casino and Tanger Outlet, and only 20 minutes from Pittsburgh International Airport and 30 minutes from downtown Pittsburgh.
“The opening of this hotel represents the sixth DoubleTree by Hilton we now have in our portfolio, and we look forward to adding more properties from this leading hotel brand in the future,” says Hospitality Ventures President & CEO Robert Cole. Hospitality Ventures also operates the DoubleTree by Hilton DFW Airport North in Irving, TX that was converted from a Wyndham earlier this month. Hospitality Ventures added seven hotels to its portfolio in 2010 (a 33% growth rate) despite one of the toughest operating and growth environments in the history of the hotel industry. According to Cole, the firm is poised to continue double-digit annual growth in 2011 and beyond.
