Hilton Worldwide Announces Further Expansion of the DoubleTree by Hilton Brand in Australia

DoubleTree by Hilton brand strengthens presence in Australian market with the signing of the DoubleTree by Hilton Cairns

August 01, 2014 // Franchising.com // SYDNEY, Australia - Hilton Worldwide today announced the signing of the 237 room DoubleTree by Hilton Cairns. Located at 121 The Esplanade, DoubleTree by Hilton Cairns will enjoy a prime waterfront location. Formerly the Holiday Inn Cairns, the property will join Hilton Worldwide’s Australasian portfolio of 21 hotels in the fourth quarter of 2014.

"DoubleTree by Hilton continues to be one of the fastest growing full service hotel brands in the world, and we are thrilled to continue this growth in a market as important as Australia," said John Greenleaf, global head, DoubleTree by Hilton. "We look forward to welcoming guests at the DoubleTree by Hilton Cairns with the DoubleTree hospitality and service culture which begins with the warm chocolate chip cookie presented to every guest at check-in."

After such a successful launch of our three DoubleTree by Hilton properties in the Northern Territory in 2013, we are extremely pleased to be further expanding DoubleTree by Hilton in the Australian market," said Ashley Spencer, vice president, operations, Australasia.

"Cairns is the gateway to some of Australia’s most revered tourism experiences including the Great Barrier Reef and the Daintree Rainforest. It’s the popularity of experiences like these that has provided us with the opportunity to widen DoubleTree by Hilton’s presence to such a desirable leisure destination."

DoubleTree by Hilton Cairns will join Hilton Worldwide’s well-established Hilton Cairns hotel. The addition of DoubleTree by Hilton Cairns will cater to a broader range of potential Hilton Worldwide guests offering them more accommodation options in Cairns.

Recognized worldwide for its warm, hospitable service, DoubleTree by Hilton is Hilton Worldwide’s fastest growing full service brand, with 380 properties in 33 countries and territories. Along with DoubleTree by Hilton’s three existing Australian properties in Darwin and Alice Springs, two new DoubleTree by Hilton Hotels in Western Australia have been announced in Perth and Fremantle.

DoubleTree by Hilton knows that little things mean everything when it comes to a rewarding travel experience, and strives to bring each guest the special comforts and acts of kindness that are unique to the brand - starting with the warm chocolate chip cookie welcome and continuing throughout every guest’s hotel stay.

Among the amenities that guests will enjoy are the invigorating array of CITRON body care products by Crabtree & Evelyn, 24-hour business and fitness centers, outdoor swimming pools, a range of food and drink offerings to meet every guest's need, complimentary high-speed internet access in public areas, and an industry-recognized service culture which is built around the idea of CARE, or Create A Rewarding Experience for guests, team members and the community.

As participants in the Hilton HHonors guest loyalty program, the property will offer guests the ability to earn and redeem Hilton HHonors points.
