DoubleTree Philadelphia Airport completes renovations

DoubleTree by Hilton and Hilton Worldwide opened the DoubleTree by Hilton Philadelphia Airport, located adjacent to the Philadelphia International Airport, just off Interstate 95 and only six miles from the heart of historic Philadelphia.

Formerly a Hilton hotel, the nine-story, 331-room property remains within the Hilton Worldwide portfolio of hotels as it joins the DoubleTree by Hilton brand following a $3 million property-wide renovation that included updates throughout the hotel's lobby, guestrooms, restaurant, bar areas and banquet and meetings areas.

The hotel is owned by Sotherly Hotels and managed by Chesapeake Hospitality.
