DoubleTree by Hilton Bemidji has opened its doors along the scenic waterfront of Lake Bemidji following a 15 month, $14 million investment.
The newly-constructed 92-room hotel, owned by SCGM, LLC and managed by Rich Siegert and associates, adjoins the existing Hampton Inn & Suites Bemidji.
A shared event facility with the adjoining Hampton Inn & Suites creates more than 5,000 square feet of flexible meeting space. The hotel’s on-site Green Mill Restaurant, open for lunch and dinner, offers specialty pizzas to classic American dishes with gourmet twists.
“The opening of DoubleTree by Hilton Bemidji marks the first hotel for our brand in this market, and is a welcome addition to our portfolio,” said John Greenleaf, global head - DoubleTree by Hilton.
“We look forward to catering to guests seeking first-class accommodations and amenities, and delivering our globally-recognized service culture built around the idea of CARE, which stands for Create A Rewarding Experience, for our guests, team members and the community.” Greenleaf added.
