Doubletree by Hilton to open in Bucharest

Hilton Worldwide has signed a franchise license agreement with VIS 7 Import Export SRL to open a Doubletree by Hilton hotel in Bucharest.

The conversion and upgrade of the Bucharest City Unirii Square Hotel to a Doubletree by Hilton hotel is scheduled to be completed in the second quarter. The 88-key Doubletree by Hilton, Bucharest-Unirii Square, will be Hilton Worldwide’s fifth hotel in Romania and the country’s second Doubletree, with Doubletree by Hilton, Oradea, due to open early next year.

“Our pace of growth in Romania is certainly gaining momentum, and we are delighted to be building our presence in Bucharest itself,” says Patrick Fitzgibbon, Hilton’s senior vice president of development for Europe and Africa. “Having opened Athenee Palace Bucharest in 1997, our first hotel in Romania, and adding Hilton Sibiu last year, the Doubletree by Hilton Bucharest-Unirii Square will now become our fifth hotel development secured in Romania.”

Hilton Worldwide relaunches website aimed at hotel developers

Hilton Worldwide announces a new initiative designed to bolster its management arm, relaunching a website aimed at hotel owners and developers that offers in-depth information about Hilton Management Services.

“In one of the most challenging years on record, Hilton-managed properties delivered a RevPAR premium of 117%, and we reduced costs by 30% through permanent cost-control programs and best practices,” says Tim Benolken, Hilton’s senior vice president of operations for western North America. “Our use of innovative programs, such as LightStay, also saved our hotel owners more than US$29 million in utility costs alone in 2009.”

The newly redesigned Hilton Management Services website features a video overview and information about its food and beverage services, its engineering expertise, meetings and events management, ecommerce and hotel revenue support, among other topics.

Hilton Management Services owns, leases or manages more than 340 properties in the Americas, with more than 55,000 team members across all industry segments. The portfolio includes Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts, Conrad Hotels & Resorts, Hilton Hotels & Resorts, Doubletree, Embassy Suites Hotels, Hilton Garden Inn, Hampton Hotels, Homewood Suites by Hilton and Home2 Suites by Hilton.
