DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel & Conference Center La Mola
Opens in Catalonian National Park in Spain

Completing the Renovation and Rebranding of the 186-room Hotel

TERRASSA/BARCELONA, Spain & MCLEAN, Va. - April 17, 2013
--Hilton Worldwide continues its expansion in Spain with the arrival of DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel & Conference Center La Mola, a hotel taking its name from one of the highest peaks in the nearby Catalan Pre Coastal mountain range. Having recently opened Spain’s first DoubleTree by Hilton in Emporda and first Hilton Garden Inn in Sevilla, Hilton Worldwide now has eight properties trading across Spain.

With a modern design inspired by the natural beauty of its setting, DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel & Conference Center La Mola (formerly La Mola Hotel & Conference Centre) features 186 guestrooms and suites, an 800 square metre spa, plus 4,500 sqm of meetings and events space which recently underwent a significant renovation. With its close proximity to the prestigious Real Club de Golf El Prat golf course, less than 30 miles from Spain’s second busiest airport, Barcelona El Prat, and only 17 miles from Barcelona, the hotel is ideal for both business and leisure travellers.

Simon Vincent, president, EMEA, Hilton Worldwide, said, “Our continued Spanish expansion is seeing us open some exceptional properties in superb locations. While this beautifully designed hotel benefits from excellent meeting and events facilities, its picturesque mountain setting is also within easy reach of a major international airport and the city of Barcelona itself.”

Guests looking for relaxation will be able to utilise the hotel’s Sensations Spa and Wellness Centre, which features a 24-hour fitness center, several treatment rooms, a heated indoor pool, a chromotherapy thermal circuit, a steam room, a sauna and a seasonal outdoor swimming pool. For those interested in soaking up the local culture, the hotel’s L’Obac restaurant serves exciting culinary delights using fresh, native produce including vegetables from its own garden. The outdoor terrace bar, Sòfora Gastrobar, is also an ideal option for relaxing and socializing in the Catalan sunshine.

The hotel’s 26 meeting rooms boast a combined capacity of 250 people, including 14 multi-function meeting rooms, two 54-seat auditoriums and a specialist video conference room. With the latest state-of-the-art equipment, the hotel is one of only three Spanish members of the International Association of Conference Centers (IACC).

Guests can also book weddings or events in the adjoining 17th century manor house Mas Bonvilar, complete with a small chapel, which provides a charming venue to exchange nuptials and for other private functions.

John Greenleaf, global head, DoubleTree by Hilton, said, “Having introduced the DoubleTree by Hilton brand to Spain only a matter of months ago with DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel & Spa Emporda, we are especially pleased to celebrate our second hotel opening within such a short time. The stunning new DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel & Conference Center La Mola joins our growing portfolio of 38 hotels operating in 13 countries across Europe.”

Guests of DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel & Conference Center La Mola will enjoy the characteristic features of more than 330 DoubleTree by Hilton locations around the world, including a caring service culture that is demonstrated to every guest at check-in with the brand's signature chocolate chip cookie welcome, an array of upscale amenities and guest services, and rewards from the Hilton HHonors guest loyalty program. Gold and Diamond HHonors members can enjoy complimentary, continental breakfast and all guests of the hotel will receive complimentary high speed internet access in all guest rooms, public areas and meeting spaces.

Hilton Worldwide has experienced strong growth in Spain recently, with a number of exciting new hotel openings, including DoubleTree by Hilton & Spa Emporda and Hilton Garden Inn Sevilla. The company now operates eight hotels in Spain with five Hilton Hotels & Resorts properties located in Barcelona, Madrid, Toledo and Palma, Mallorca.
