Hilton Worldwide has signed a new deal to take its DoubleTree brand to Australia.
The 164-room DoubleTree by Hilton Karratha will be located in the commercial centre of Karratha – a major mining hub in the Pilbara region of Western Australia, 1,500km north of Perth. It is expected to open in 2014.
“Hilton Worldwide has had a strong presence in Australia for over 40 years with the Hilton Hotels & Resorts brand, and we have been committed to expanding our brand portfolio in the region for some time,” said Robert Scullin, Hilton’s Vice President for Development in Australasia. “The hotel is strategically located to support the ever growing demand from the resources sector.”
The eight-storey property will feature 144 rooms and 20 apartments, while facilities will include an restaurant and bar, fitness centre, outdoor pool, three function rooms and car parking facilities.
