DoubleTree by Hilton Sunrise – Sawgrass Mills emerges after $4M renovation

StepStone Hospitality, manager of a 250-room, full-service hotel located in Sunrise, Fla., announced that the hotel completed a $4-million refurbishment and re-branded as the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Sunrise – Sawgrass Mills.

The hotel, formerly a Crowne Plaza, is owned by Boston-based Long Wharf Real Estate Partners and managed by StepStone Hospitality. 

Among the new additions is the Sweet Dreams by Doubletree Sleep Experience, which includes a custom-designed, plush-top mattress and a high-end, residential linen package of baffle-box down blankets, 200-thread count linens with triple sheeting, elegant contemporary bedcovers and matching bed skirts. Also, the hotel becomes only the second in the Fort Lauderdale area to offer a new, enhanced television viewing experience from Direct TV. Similarly, the Residential Experience delivers a home-away-from-home video experience by providing hotel guests access to more than 120 HD channels.

Additional guestroom enhancements include new in-room furniture, energy-efficient lighting, digital thermostats and 37-inch flat screen televisions in each room.

Another change has been adding the trademarked Wake up DoubleTree breakfast to the menu at the hotel’s three-meal restaurant, Peyton’s Place.

Lobby upgrades include creating a gathering area complete with lounge chairs, TVs and a business center with touch screen computers. The hotel’s renovated fitness center now offers a larger workout area that offers five cardio machines with individual flat screen TVs, universal machine and free weights.
