Reflagging Complete for the 220-room DoubleTree by Hilton Deerfield
Beach- Boca Raton, Formerly a Hilton, by Owners Continental Properties
and Management Group Ocean Properties

MCLEAN, Va. - -  (November 5, 2012) – DoubleTree by Hilton today announced the opening of the  DoubleTree by Hilton Deerfield Beach, the latest addition to the rapidly expanding portfolio of DoubleTree by Hilton hotels worldwide.  Owned by Continental Properties and managed by Ocean Properties, the 220-room hotel previously was a Hilton but currently is in the midst of a two-year property upgrade and now will welcome guests with an oven-baked chocolate chip cookie, a welcoming gesture known around the world as the signature of the DoubleTree by Hilton brand.
“The reflagging to a DoubleTree by Hilton signals both leisure and business travelers that they will enjoy special comforts and acts of kindness that align perfectly with this relaxed south Florida location,” said general manager Walter “Chip” Chapman.  “The DoubleTree brand is well-known for its caring culture and the genuine warmth of our associates will resonate with our guests and be evident throughout the property, from guest rooms to our meeting space.”
The hotel has recently added new 40-inch flat screen televisions in each guest room and upgraded HVAC in the hotel’s spacious grand ballroom. Over the next 24 months, new furnishings will enhance the guest rooms and the lobby will be renovated.

“The DoubleTree by Hilton brand has been very well received in south Florida, as evidenced by our eight other branded hotels already thriving along the Miami – Palm Beach corridor,” said Rob Palleschi, global head DoubleTree by Hilton. “This hotel, with its suburban location just two miles from the beach and easy access to I-95, is an outstanding addition to the DoubleTree by Hilton family.”
The hotel will continue to offer guests the exceptional level of service they have enjoyed as part of the Hilton Worldwide portfolio of hotels for the past 26 years, with added benefits of DoubleTree by Hilton’s Sweet Dreams® by DoubleTree Sleep Experience; a refreshing array of CITRON body care products by Crabtree & Evelyn; the industry-recognized Culture of CARE (Create a Rewarding Experience for our guests); and, of course, warm chocolate chip cookies upon arrival. 
As a participant of Hilton HHonors guest loyalty program, the hotel will continue to offer guests the ability to earn hotel points and airline miles for the same stay, and Gold and Diamond HHonors members will receive complimentary high speed internet.
Conveniently located near three major international airports – Ft. Lauderdale/Hollywood International, Palm Beach International, and Miami International – and along the I-95 corridor, the hotel provides easy access to a number of leisure and business activities.  The property is just minutes from Florida’s Gold Coast beaches, world-class shopping at Mizner Park in Downtown Boca and Town Center at Boca Raton, and an array of award-winning restaurants.  Situated on the grounds of the Deerfield Country Club, hotel guests are also able to play a round at the club’s 18-hole golf course.  Additional amenities include a fitness center and Bobby Bahia’s Caribbean Grille and Lounge serving breakfast, lunch and dinner.  The hotel’s 20,000 square feet of meeting space can accommodate groups of up to 800 and features the Grand Ballroom with floor-to-ceiling windows, allowing for an abundance of natural lighting.
To mark the opening, DoubleTree by Hilton Deerfield Beach Boca Raton will be offering double Hilton HHonors Points from November 5, 2012 through January 5, 2013.  For reservations, visit, contact your preferred travel professional or call 1 (800) 222 TREE.
