The DoubleTree by Hilton in Little Rock, Ark., started renovations including a new lobby, lounge and restaurant, and upgraded guestrooms. The 288-room hotel is managed by Waterford Hotel Group.
The newly refurbished lobby will eventually include a complete overhaul of all finishes and fixtures. The new front desk will provide open access to guests. The lobby will also have food outlet Made Market.
The business center will be redesigned with a new work space, as well as seating to allow guests to gather throughout the lobby. Meanwhile, the concierge lounge will receive new wall finishes, carpet, seating and breakfast bar.
To complement the other improvements of the hotel, the bar was also redesigned. The new bar will flow into the lounge area, which – in turn – will have a fireplace and seven new televisions. The restaurant will be completely transformed and will have a new private dining room available for parties of up to 10 people.
The renovations and upgrades will continue throughout the property to the guestrooms, which will receive new carpet, wall vinyl, draperies and new soft seating including pullout sofa beds. All current double full rooms will be converted into double queen rooms, and all current single queen rooms will be converted into king rooms. New desks, dressers, nightstands and full-length mirrors will be added. Additionally, all guestroom corridors will receive new wall vinyl, draperies and carpet.
