DoubleTree by Hilton debuts in Germany

Hilton’s DoubleTree brand has opened its 1st property in Germany. This opening takes total countries in which DoubleTree by Hilton is present to 50.

DoubleTree by Hilton Frankfurt Niederrad is a rebranding of the former Innside by Melia Frankfurt Niederrad, and is located approximately 5 miles from the Frankfurt Airport, close to the Frankfurt-Niederrad train station.

The hotel features 146 rooms and suites. An all-day dining restaurant, with terrace seating, a 24-hour fitness centre, and 169 square meters of total event space are present at the hotel (seating of up to 140 attendees).

DoubleTree by Hilton was initially a US-focused brand but it eventually made its way all across the globe. Hilton opened the brand’s 1st UK property in 2008, now has over 615 properties and 141,000 rooms.

Hilton said that ‘one of the major factors behind the brand’s successful expansion over the past decade is the increase of conversions of non-Hilton properties’, with a total of 64% of the brand’s hotels worldwide being converted properties.

The newly opened Frankfurt hotel is the 8th property of Hilton in the German city, joining the existing Hilton Frankfurt City Centre, Hilton Garden Inn Frankfurt City Centre, Hampton by Hilton Frankfurt City Centre East, Hampton by Hilton Frankfurt City Centre Messe, Hampton by Hilton Frankfurt Airport, Hilton Frankfurt Airport, and Hilton Garden Inn Frankfurt Airport.

Shawn McAteer, Global Brand Head, DoubleTree by Hilton, commenting on the rebranding, said:

Doubletree by Hilton is one of the portfolio’s fastest growing brands and we are delighted to celebrate the 50th country milestone and our first hotel in Germany. We look forward to expanding our global footprint to develop more properties in key destinations, from overwater bungalows in sought-after resort locations to high rise rooftop bars with 360-degree views of major city skylines.
