DoubleTree by Hilton opens in Decatur, Ala.

Hilton Worldwide and DoubleTree by Hilton opened the DoubleTree by Hilton Decatur Riverfront, a five-story, 165-room hotel located in historic downtown Decatur, Ala., 14 miles from Huntsville International Airport. Formerly a Garden Plaza hotel, the property closed in November 2014 to complete a $10-million transformation that redesigned the exterior and lobby, updated guestrooms and suites, installed all new furniture throughout the hotel, updated and expanded meeting spaces and renovated the atrium. DoubleTree by Hilton Decatur Riverfront is owned and managed by Cooper Hotels.

In addition to upscale accommodations, guests will enjoy an array of complimentary amenities, including the newly-updated indoor/outdoor pool and sun deck, 24-hour fitness center, 24-hour business center and complimentary Wi-Fi throughout the hotel’s public areas and guestrooms.
