A Multi-Million-Dollar, Hotel-Wide Renovation is Complete for the
148-room DoubleTree by Hilton Cocoa Beach in Florida

COCOA BEACH, Fla. (June 4, 2012)
– The DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Cocoa Beach Oceanfront located on what is commonly referred to as Florida’s “Space Coast,” welcomes guests to celebrate and enjoy its multi-million dollar hotel transformation. The property features comprehensive upgrades throughout the hotel’s guest rooms, public areas, functional space, dining outlets, landscaping and includes a new boardwalk to its private access beach. Situated in the home to Kennedy Space Center, near Patrick Air Force Base and Port Canaveral, and offering the closest beach to Orlando, home to Walt Disney World, Sea World and Universal Studios, this Cocoa Beach hotel is the perfect setting for business and leisure.

An unnamed hurricane-like storm, referred to as “fascinating” by the Weather Channel, hit the hotel and surrounding area in October 2011 leading to a complete hotel-wide property update, making DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Cocoa Beach Oceanfront one of the freshest hotel destinations on the Florida coast.

“Our doors are open and we are welcoming guests to enjoy our rejuvenated space, impressive amenities and refreshing, contemporary and inviting look and feel at DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Cocoa Beach Oceanfront,” said Christy Galzerano, hotel general manager. “Our team members have worked hard to prepare for our recent re-opening and are committed to delivering a memorable experience for our guests.

The 148-room DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Cocoa Beach Oceanfront offers ocean views and private balconies in almost all of its guestrooms and from all suites and rooms on the executive floor. All rooms feature all-new carpet and upholstery; new bathrooms with fresh granite and lighting; new balcony furniture; comfortable plush bedding and combed cotton linens; ergonomic work desks and chairs; complimentary wireless service; 37-inch, high-definition, LCD TVs; MP3-compatible alarm clocks; Wolfgang Puck gourmet coffee and tea service; and Crabtree & Evelyn Citron bath and body products. All guests have access to the hotel’s new fitness center featuring Precor equipment, heated outdoor pool, and private sandy beach and can easily find local surfing, deep sea fishing and relaxation under giant palm trees.

Upon entering the hotel, guests are greeted at the completely renovated front desk and lobby area offering an inviting setting and as well as the DoubleTree signature welcome with the legendary warm chocolate chip cookie presented to every guest at check-in. The hotel also features a host of specials for guests to choose from, including a Cruise and Stay package, Bed and Breakfast package, Advance Purchase Rates and Double Your HHonors for guests who sign up or are already enrolled in Hilton HHonors .

The 3 Wishes Oceanfront Restaurant and Lounge is all new and features fresh Florida seafood, pastas and coveted brick-oven pizzas. This on-site restaurant offers breakfast, lunch and dinner in a casual, yet sophisticated setting and caters to poolside diners as well. The bar has been transformed and now opens up to the lobby. Guests also will find an expanded patio lounge with a new fire pit and landscaping at poolside. The hotel upgrades extend to include new banquet menus, welcoming guests to its meeting and banquet rooms for great lunches, dinners, banquets, meetings and receptions of 10 to 500 guests in up to 6,100 square feet of meeting space.

Guests of DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Cocoa Beach Oceanfront are in the center of Cocoa Beach’s natural haven for eco-tourism. The area is home more than 50 threatened and endangered species, a number of wildlife conservation parks, the Brevard Zoo with more than 400 animals, and kayak tours allowing for up-close-and-personal views of Mother Nature and her inhabitants.

The hotel is located just 45 minutes from Orlando and Melbourne International Airports.  More information and reservations can be made via travel professionals, by calling the hotel directly at +1-321-783-9222 or visiting the hotel’s website at www.cocoabeachoceanfront.doubletree.com.
