FAIRLAWN, Ohio, April 1, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- The Akron area's first Doubletree Hotel opens April 1 in Fairlawn unveiling a dramatic renovation of the 40,000-square-foot property on West Market Street.
The exterior is a striking combination of glass and stone creating a stylish entrance. The hotel is modern and open and will be greeting guests at check-in with the smell of the famous Doubletree chocolate-chip cookie that is synonymous with its warm hospitality. A sleek fireplace and chic furnishings complete the welcome.
Guest sleeping rooms and bathrooms were completely renovated, and a business center and fitness room with Precor equipment were added. A new restaurant – Cafe Bricco completes the refreshed and energized feel.
"We're excited to have Bricco as part of our team; they bring their experience, great reputation and excitement to West Akron and are a great addition to our complex," said Rennick Andreoli, owner of RDA Hotel Management Co., manager of the Hilton complex. "This Doubletree is the newest hotel product in the area and will offer guests another great alternative for their hospitality needs."
Another positive aspect with the addition of the Doubletree property is its location in proximity to the Hilton Akron/Fairlawn. The properties, members of the Hilton Family of Hotels, anchor the campus located on 15 prime acres across the street from Summit Mall and offer a combined total of over 300 guest rooms, more than 20,000 square feet of meeting space and two award winning restaurants.
"We've taken the 40 year success of the Hilton and expanded it next door," Andreoli said. "We feel Hilton is the strongest and most relevant hotel brand in the industry and we enjoy a great partnership."
One example of this is the HHonors Rewards Guest Loyalty program. This is the only loyalty program that lets guests earn double points for both hotel stays and airline miles at more than 3,300 hotels worldwide.
