Hilton Worldwide and Rim Hospitality announced the opening of DoubleTree by Hilton Los Angeles Downtown, the latest Los Angeles-area property in the Hilton Worldwide portfolio.
With the majority of its multimillion-dollar renovation near completion, the former Kyoto Grand Hotel and Gardens is now the DoubleTree by Hilton Los Angeles Downtown as it debuts its refreshed Japanese-inspired rooftop garden, the hotel’s signature outdoor event and meeting space.
The DoubleTree by Hilton Los Angeles Downtown’s renovation includes design and service upgrades to the hotel’s 434 guestrooms and suites, public spaces and corridors, indoor and outdoor meeting and event spaces, business and fitness centers and its half-acre rooftop Japanese-style gardens.
The DoubleTree by Hilton Los Angeles Downtown features earth tones present in new carpet and wall treatments. Additional changes to the guestrooms include the Sweet Dreams bed; 42 inch flat screen LCD televisions; ergonomic work desks and chairs; and high-speed Internet access upgrades. Updates to guest bathrooms include new wall treatments, granite countertops, custom-made vanity tables, and Crabtree & Evelyn Citron bath and body products.
A significant investment in gardening and landscaping updates the hotel’s half-acre gardens. Now called the Kyoto Gardens as tribute to the hotel’s former name, the gardens offer spaces for events. The gardens also offer views of the downtown Los Angeles skyline.
The DoubleTree by Hilton Downtown Los Angeles also features 15,000 square feet of flexible conference space for conventions, business meetings, banquets, romantic weddings and social events, including the largest meeting room at 4,212 square feet, which can accommodate up to 650 guests. The hotel offers a 24-hour self-service business center and complimentary printing service. Also available is a 24-hour fitness facility.
The contemporary Azalea Restaurant has been redesigned to feature Asian-inspired California cuisine based on locally sourced and seasonal foods. The hotel also serves the brand’s signature Wake Up DoubleTree Breakfast.
