255-room DoubleTree by Hilton Carson completes renovation

The DoubleTree by Hilton Carson in Los Angeles completed a multi-million hotel transformation project, which includes upgrades throughout the hotel’s guestrooms, public areas, function space and dining outlets.

Purchased in 2010 through a partnership with Platinum Equity, Ensemble Investments implemented a strategy with DoubleTree by Hilton to retain the franchise and re-license the DoubleTree by Hilton Carson by implementing a renovation and change in management company. Urgo Hotels has managed the hotel throughout the hotel refurbishment project, since 2010. The DoubleTree by Hilton Carson is operated under a franchise license agreement with a subsidiary of Hilton Worldwide. The 225-room DoubleTree by Hilton Carson, was redesigned by HFS Concepts 4.

The guestrooms received new furniture and finishes, including 37” HDTVs. The guestroom upgrades complement the completion of the DoubleTree by Hilton Carson lobby and public areas. New lobby furnishings, carpeting, wall covering and window treatments are now featured.

The hotel’s meeting and banquet rooms, along with the hotel restaurant, have also been improved. More than 5,600 square feet of meeting space has been upgraded and outfitted with new technology. The restaurant has been redesigned, and the bar transformed and now opens up to the lobby. Additionally, an expanded patio lounge with a new fire pit and landscaping at poolside are similarly available.

A new fitness center with the latest in Precor weight training and cardio equipment are also on offer.
