Side a 90-suite Homewood Suites by Hilton and
a 150-suite Embassy Suites Hotel
|MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- March 24, 2005 -- The Hilton Family of Hotels celebrated
the opening of two new properties in Dulles, Va. just outside Washington
D.C. today. A 90-suite Homewood Suites by Hilton(R) and a 150-suite Embassy
Suites Hotel(R) are close neighbors on Waxpool Road. The Buccini/Pollin
Group, Inc. of Washington D.C. franchised both new hotels, and Pollin/Miller
Hospitality Strategies, Inc., also of Washington D.C. manages both properties.
"We are pleased to add two of the leading hotel brands to the Dulles - D.C. area," said David B. Pollin, President of The Buccini/Pollin Group. "Both Embassy Suites Hotels and Homewood Suites by Hilton are high-quality upscale brands, each offering distinct accommodations. By offering our guests these options side-by-side, we are able to cast a wider net into the market, and appeal to multiple customer segments."
Pollin also mentioned the financial efficiencies of operating two hotels on the same location, such as shared laundry, maintenance and housekeeping staffs. "From an ownership perspective, this was a perfect investment to be able to reach all types of guests - transient, extended stay, groups, families and leisure business."
Buccini/Pollin Group currently owns six Hilton Family hotels open or under construction, with another seven new Hilton Family hotels under construction or in the conceptual phase.
"We are delighted that Buccini/Pollin is flying the Embassy Suites Hotels and Homewood Suites by Hilton flags on these two new hotels in such a thriving market as Dulles-North/Loudoun," said Tom Keltner, president - brand performance and development group for Hilton Hotels Corporation. "Both hotels will benefit from the ease of online booking channels via embassysuites.com and homewoodsuites.com, the outreach of Hilton Sales Worldwide, and high-visibility brand marketing programs."
The simultaneous openings bring two distinct styles of accommodations to the area. The Homewood Suites by Hilton Dulles-North, located at 44620 Waxpool Road, features services and amenities uniquely suited to the extended-stay guest who typically stays five or more nights. The hotel features residential-style studio, one- and two-bedroom suites with fully equipped kitchens and spacious sleeping and living areas that are large enough for work, study, entertaining or relaxing.
