Be swept away by old-world glamour

DoubleTree by Hilton is located in a beautifully restored historic building with all the modern amenities of a world-class hotel.

It begins the moment you walk through the doors and into the lobby which has all the glamour and style of the 1920s. This stunningly refurbished Art Deco-inspired lobby features Chicago-style architectural elements with marble, copper and warm wood accents. But despite the grandeur, you’ll feel right at home when the staff will offer you a warm chocolate chip cookie to munch on as you check-in.

Like the drop-dead gorgeous lobby, every room of this hotel combines heritage charm with modern convenience and luxury.

Whether you choose a stylish Guest room, a spacious Superior room, or a luxe Suite, they all have original design features like high ceilings alongside modern amenities such as an HD TV, high-speed Wi-Fi, a work desk and chic rain shower.

Put some spring in your step

If you don’t feel like leaving your bubble of DoubleTree 1920s glamour (we wouldn't either), book a table at on-site Spring Kitchen.

Before dinner, relax at 1928 Lounge with a freshly-made barista coffee or an expertly-mixed cocktail – the lounge name affectionately references the year the iconic heritage building was built.

For dinner, you’ll be enjoying Spring Kitchen’s Asian-inspired flavours combined with modern European cuisine to create new flavours and experiences, like their signature dish of Angus tenderloin beef with smoked eggplant, curried potato and masala jus.
