The 364-room DoubleTree by
Hilton Boston-North Shore Opens in Danvers, Massachusetts
McLean, Virginia (October 2, 2012) – DoubleTree by Hilton today announced the opening of a newly renovated, upscale, full-service hotel situated on Boston’s prestigious North Shore. With its easy proximity to Boston’s historic and cultural center, the 364-room DoubleTree by Hilton Boston North Shore is an ideal location for both business and leisure visits to the Boston area. The hotel, formerly the CoCo Key Water Resort Boston, is owned by The Lightstone Group and operated by Sage Hospitality.
Renovations to the DoubleTree by Hilton Boston North Shore included all guest rooms and public spaces, including the hotel’s lobby and more than 30,000 square feet of meeting space.

Additional upgrades include the addition of an executive lounge and 50MB fiber optic high speed internet service that is a complimentary offering.
“DoubleTree Boston North Shore will be the premier business and event space in North Shore Boston – a place for everyone to come together, to conduct business, to socialize and to play.” said Eric Marx, senior vice president of Lightstone Group. “We hope the hotel will be perceived as the ‘guest house’ of the community.”
“As the tenth largest metropolitan area in the U.S., Greater Boston remains a top tier destination for both domestic and international travelers,” said Rob Palleschi, global head DoubleTree by Hilton. “Since travelers to this destination have responded so well to the DoubleTree by Hilton brand, we are opening our fourth hotel in the area to meet the growing demand. Travelers vote with their reservations, and the DoubleTree by Hilton brand is a clear winner in Boston.”
Guests of the DoubleTree by Hilton Boston North Shore will enjoy the brand’s signature warm chocolate chip cookie welcome presented to every guest at check-in, an array of upscale amenities and guest services, the rewards of the Hilton HHonors guest loyalty program and a unique and caring team committed to the local community.
