The human touch approach to development.

DoubleTree by Hilton may be known for its cookies but developing with us is anything but cookie-cutter. As with our guests, the DoubleTree by Hilton CARE service culture gives owners the flexibility to create properties that capture their unique style, personality, and passion for hospitality. Properties that deliver full service with fewer resources, which resonates with higher value business travelers.

Why Develop a DoubleTree by Hilton

Comfortable, modern lobby of a DoubleTree hotel

DoubleTree by Hilton is refreshingly simple and efficient, because it's more affordable to build and operate than others in the upscale category. The typical development time for a property is half the industry average. Our commitment to diverse properties makes it ideal to convert existing and independent hotels, while accessing the benefits of the Hilton Performance Advantage.
