Doubletree builds on California portfolio

Doubletree Hotels has welcomed its 20th Southern California hotel to the brand’s upscale, full-service hotel collection with the addition of the Doubletree Hotel Los Angeles/Commerce.The hotel is located inside The Citadel, a California landmark that combines name-brand shopping at the Citadel Outlets with a touch of Hollywood cinema history. The Doubletree Hotel Los Angeles/Commerce and the adjacent business park are surrounded by the Assyrian-style castle wall that was used as a backdrop in the 1959 epic movie, Ben Hur. Located just eight miles from downtown Los Angeles along the busy Interstate 5 Commercial Corridor that connects Los Angeles with Orange County, the Doubletree also is located just two blocks from the famed Commerce Casino.

The 201-room Doubletree is operated by W2005 WYN Hotels, L.P. under a franchise license agreement with Doubletree Hotel Systems, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Hilton Hotels Corporation. The hotel is managed by Surrey Hotel Management, LLC.

“Doubletree continues to make great strides in its current growth strategy, by aligning the brand with new hotel additions in key metropolitan areas that complement and enhance our brand’s wide-ranging portfolio of upscale, full-service hotels and resorts,” said Dave Horton, senior vice president - brand management for Doubletree Hotels. “From Santa Barbara to San Diego, our 20th Southern California Doubletree in the important business community of Commerce, Calif. demonstrates both a brand and a developer commitment that makes our Doubletree brand highly attractive in almost any market, while offering business and leisure travelers the quality, amenities and comfortable hotel atmosphere they’re looking for in their home away from home.”
