THG Celebrates Grand
Opening of DoubleTree by Hilton Santa Fe
Jim Bradbury, Executive Director of the Santa Fe Convention and Visitors Bureau, had this to say: "The DoubleTree by Hilton Santa Fe is a welcome addition to the lodging mix in Santa Fe. The recent renovation has transformed the property and Hilton's reputation for excellence should assure success."
"We are honored to welcome everyone to the new DoubleTree by Hilton Santa Fe," said General Manager Steve Caalim. "Our friends in the local market and those among the business community are amazed by the change and are delighted to have a fresh, full-service hotel that brings quality and affordable accommodations to Santa Fe.
"We would like to thank THG for selecting DoubleTree by Hilton as the flag for this amazing new property, and our friends with the City of Santa Fe who continue to help us promote this exciting new destination," he said. "We would also like to thank our partners at Hilton for their commitment to hospitality and for developing a culture that makes travelers everywhere feel at home.”
Douglas Dreher, president and CEO of THG, said this is an opportune time to be investing in Santa Fe. “DoubleTree is the perfect brand for this hotel because it represents quality, comfort and class - all key attributes of hospitality,” Dreher said. “Harboring a fantastic location near downtown Santa Fe, this revitalized hotel sits at the gateway to some of the best arts and music venues in the nation. We encourage all travelers, meeting planners, local businesses and residents to come and see what the DoubleTree by Hilton Santa Fe has to offer,” he said. “The transformation will impress everyone who walks through our doors.”
Only five miles from the Santa Fe Municipal Airport and six miles from downtown, the DoubleTree by Hilton Santa Fe is the perfect choice when exploring Santa Fe on business or pleasure. The property features a 24-hour business center, in-room Wi-Fi and an indoor/outdoor heated pool and spa. A DoubleTree by Hilton breakfast buffet is served daily in Patina’s restaurant. Guestroom amenities include pillow-top mattresses, work desks and fridge/microwave combo units. Most rooms feature a walk-out patio or balcony.
