Resort - the 224 room Doubletree Resort Lodge
& Spa Fallsview - Niagara Falls


NIAGARA FALLS, Ontario - June 28, 2004 -- Doubletree(R) Hotels (NYSE:HLT) is proud to announce the opening of the Doubletree Resort Lodge & Spa Fallsview - Niagara Falls in Ontario, Canada, representing a new member to the brand's portfolio of more than 160 fine properties across Canada, the U.S. and Latin America.
This newly built Doubletree property is owned and operated by Orsini Bros. Inns, Inc. under a franchise agreement with Doubletree Hotel Systems, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Hilton Hotels Corporation.

Located just two short blocks from the brink of the Horseshoe & American Falls in the Fallsview Tourist District, a variety of exciting attractions, shopping, dining and casinos are located within walking distance of the resort's front doors. Most of the resort's 224 guestrooms and suites -- which include two-room family suites, king parlor suites and deluxe whirlpool rooms -- offer panoramic views of the Upper Niagara River, some with views of the American Falls.

"The Doubletree Resort Lodge & Spa Fallsview - Niagara Falls is a fantastic new addition to our Canadian hotel portfolio, as well as the perfect complement to our other resort locations in Arizona, California and Florida," said Dave Horton, senior vice president - brand management for Doubletree Hotels. "We are truly pleased to provide our loyal guests with another fresh new Doubletree hotel experience in one of the most popular leisure destinations in North America."

"Recreation, rejuvenation, relaxation are the 3R's to a great resort experience, and we truly feel that the new Doubletree Resort Lodge & Spa Fallsview - Niagara Falls will offer the ideal combination of these three attributes to the world's travelers when they stay with us," said Robert Orsini, vice president - sales and marketing for Orsini Bros. Inns, Inc. "Not only does the U.S. dollar go farther in Canada, with a favorable currency exchange rate, most major cities in Eastern Canada and the U.S. are within a day's drive of Niagara Falls or a 90-minute, non-stop flight to either Buffalo or Toronto International Airports by most major air carriers. We look forward to welcoming this summer's travelers to enjoy the wonders of the Niagara Region and a resort experience that is distinctively Doubletree."

Rising from a park like setting, the new 18-story Doubletree Resort Lodge & Spa Fallsview - Niagara Falls combines the elegance of an English Manor with the rustic timeless architecture of a Grand National Park Lodge.

The resort welcomes guests with the brand's new sleep standard, the Sweet Dreams by Doubletree(R) sleep experience, in every guestroom which includes:

  • A custom-designed plush-top (not pillow-top) mattress that is directly supported by coils for a comfortable night's sleep.
  • Four jumbo pillows for full and queen beds; five jumbo pillows for king beds.
  • A linen package of down blankets, 200-thread count linens with triple sheeting and matching bedskirts.
  • A signature "Sweet Dreams" embroidered pillow.
Other thoughtful guestroom amenities include a large, work-friendly desk with voicemail and dataports; in-room coffee makers, hairdryers, irons and ironing boards; dual-line phones with voicemail; and televisions with in-room entertainment services. The hotel also features bellman and concierge services; foreign currency exchange; guest laundry services, car rental pick-up and drop-off, a Mail Boxes Etc.(R) business center and a guest activity/recreation desk.

The Doubletree will open the Five Lakes Spa AVEDA(R) later this summer, a full-service facility that will provide a variety of relaxing massages, nourishing facials, European wraps, luxurious hand and foot treatments and exciting new spa therapies.

The Doubletree Resort Lodge & Spa Fallsview - Niagara Falls has a dedicated conference team managing the resort's 10,000 square feet of meeting facilities accommodating groups from 5 to 350.

The Moose & Squirrel Coffee Pub serves bakery goods, light snacks, Starbucks(R) coffee drinks and beverages throughout the day. Buchanan's, which is fashioned with the ambiance of a San Francisco chophouse, presents regional Canadian and classic culinary delights as well as a daily breakfast buffet. Both the fully licensed coffee pub and restaurant offer guests with the option of dining indoors or on a seasonal outdoor patio.
