Hilton Worldwide’s DoubleTree by Hilton opened its newest hotel in New York with the DoubleTree by Hilton Binghamton. Formerly the Riverwalk Hotel and Conference Center, the property experienced damage caused by Tropical Storm Lee in 2011. Following the completion of a two year, multi-million dollar renovation, the property transformed into an upscale, full-service hotel owned by Alfred Weissman Real Estate and operated by the Newport Hospitality Group.
Located in the city’s downtown business and government districts, the DoubleTree by Hilton Binghamton boasts a modern design highlighted by large picture windows throughout the lobby and public spaces to bring the hotel’s surroundings indoors. The 207-room hotel features elegantly designed suites with views of Downtown Binghamton and the Chenango River.
To accommodate Binghamton’s appeal as a go-to destination for conventions and events, the hotel also offers 32,000 square feet of conference space including a courtyard and outdoor garden terrace, ideal for weddings and outdoor events. The meeting space can allow for up to 17 breakout rooms, and includes the Serling Room—the hotel’s amphitheater-style lecture room that can accommodate up to 50 guests.
Among the amenities that guests to the DoubleTree by Hilton Binghamton will now enjoy are CITRON body care products by Crabtree & Evelyn, the signature Sweet Dreams bed, and in-room coffee and tea service.
Guests and locals can take in views while dining at The River Bistro restaurant and lounge. For guests seeking workout, DoubleTree by Hilton Binghamton offers access to the elite Riverwalk Athletic Club, a full-service gym and private saunas, newly-renovated locker rooms, an indoor heated lap pool and whirlpool. Guests will also have access to the hotel’s 24-hour business center, as well as the hotel’s entertainment zone, Zone 225, to meet their social needs with a golf simulator, Xbox and air hockey table. Additionally, the hotel offers complimentary WiFi access in public areas and guest rooms.
Located 10 miles from Greater Binghamton Airport, the hotel offers access to the area’s historic, cultural and scenic offerings, including the historic Forum Theatre and an array of shops, art galleries, restaurants, cafes and nightspots. Guests can enjoy a stroll alongside the Chenango River on the Binghamton River Trail or explore nearby attractions, including NYSEG Stadium, the Broome County Veterans Memorial Arena, the Roberson Museum, Binghamton Zoo, Binghamton University and Broome Community College.
