The Hilton Washington DC/Rockville Hotel & Executive Meeting Center, formerly The Doubletree Hotel, will celebrate its official opening and unveil the completion of a multimillion dollar renovation at the hotel's ribbon cutting ceremony on April 23rd, 2008.
Area Managing Director Michael D. Hirsch said, "We hope to make the hotel a gathering place for the community. With the indoor park-like setting of the atrium, people can come to just relax or to get some work done while enjoying our free wireless internet access." The expansive open lobby and atrium inspires a refreshing, outdoorsy experience with large trees, lined by a jazz themed bar and a chophouse restaurant.
Committed to supporting the community, the hotel will sponsor Rockville's annual "Pike's Peek" 10K run, which benefits Montgomery County and Rockville youth. On race day, April 27th, runners will speed down Rockville Pike, passing the newly renovated Hilton. The hotel will present a $2,500 check at its ribbon cutting to support the race's beneficiaries. Serving fresh innovative regional Maryland cuisine, the Twinbrook Grille serves as a casually elegant dinner experience for hotel patrons, as well as a destination spot for area residents. The restaurant also serves seasonal lunch specials and the renowned Hilton Breakfast, a bountiful buffet which boasts over 100 items or a-la carte menu.
Guests and local commuters alike are invited in to pick up their morning Starbucks coffee in the Atrium on the way to catch the metro and stop back in to wind down with a drink while enjoying a jazz band performance at Riffs Lounge after work.
As the only hotel meeting facility in Montgomery County certified by the International Association of Conference Centers, the hotel provides premier comforts and services - 24 hours a day. A wealth of productive features distinguishes the Executive Meeting Center - from state-of-the-art meeting space to highly professional support staff.
The hotel features 315 spacious renovated guest rooms and suites; 20,000 square feet of dedicated meeting space; a business center, with a full range of support services, high-speed internet access in all meeting and guest rooms; a heated pool; a whirlpool spa and fully equipped fitness center.
Located at 1750 Rockville Pike, Rockville, MD 20852, the hotel is only 20 miles from downtown Washington DC and BWI Airport and approximately 28 miles from Reagan Washington National Airport. The hotel, owned by The JBG companies and managed by the Pyramid Hotel Group, is adjacent to Twinbrook Metro Station, only minutes from Downtown DC and has easy access to the greater Washington/Maryland/VA area.
