Each stay at the DoubleTree by Hilton Arlington DFW South begins with a warm DoubleTree by Hilton chocolate chip cookie greeting, which signifies the brand’s industry-recognized service culture built around the idea of CARE, which stands for Create a Rewarding Experience for guests, Team Members and the community.
From the moment they step into the welcoming, open-spaced lobby, visitors will see evidence of the property’s extensive renovation, with design treatments, artwork and architectural styles that pay homage to Texas landscape and history.
