the Doubletree Hotel Newark Airport
NEWARK, N.J., November 14, 2005 – Doubletree Hotels proudly welcomes a new gateway airport hotel to its collection with the opening of the Doubletree Hotel Newark Airport. Located adjacent to Newark Liberty International Airport and just 12 miles from New York City, this former Wyndham® property is currently undergoing a multi-phase enhancement project in key areas of the hotel, which adds the finishing touches to the hotel’s $30 million renovation completed in 2001.
The Doubletree Hotel Newark Airport is owned by W2005 WYN Hotels, L.P., operated under a franchise agreement with Doubletree Hotel Systems, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Hilton Hotels Corporation and managed by Interstate Hotels and Resorts Inc.
“The Doubletree Hotel Newark Airport is a great compliment to more than 30 airport hotels in our brand’s portfolio. More important, this new addition is the perfect example of how our brand continues to have incredible potential to grow in key strategic locations throughout North America,” said Dave Horton, senior vice president – brand management for Doubletree Hotels.
"The Newark Liberty International Airport continues to be recognized more and more as a more convenient gateway airport alternative, when visiting the Tri-State area. The Doubletree Hotel Newark Airport is perfectly positioned to welcome leisure and business travelers from around the world to experience our convenient and comfortable accommodations when visiting the sights of Northern New Jersey and New York City,” said John Loconto, hotel general manager.
The spacious 396 guestrooms and suites at the Doubletree Hotel Newark Airport welcome travelers with a clean, contemporary environment of cool colors, woods and textures. The hotel is currently installing the Sweet Dreams® by Doubletree Sleep Experience in every room -– which includes a plentiful amount of pillows, a luxurious linen package of a down-filled duvet wrapped in triple sheeting and a specially designed plush-top mattress and box spring system that ensures a great night’s sleep. In 2006, guest bathrooms will be redesigned and upgraded with new lighting and fixtures.
The Doubletree Hotel Newark Airport offers more than 16,000 sq. ft.
of event space that is suitable for any occasion. The elegant 7,280
square foot Grand Ballroom and the 3,872 square foot Elizabeth Ballroom
can accommodate receptions up to 600 and 300 guests, respectively. Eight
additional meeting rooms provide flexible environments for small meetings,
workshops and corporate training sessions.
The Doubletree Hotel Newark Airport is closed to many major corporations including Anheuser Busch, Toyota, Exxon/Mobil, Prudential, PSE&G, Pfizer, ADP and Johnson & Johnson and a short drive to downtown Newark and the Meadowlands Sports Complex.
