Hilton Worldwide and Rim Hospitality announced the opening of DoubleTree by Hilton Los Angeles Downtown. With the majority of its multimillion-dollar renovation near completion, the former Kyoto Grand Hotel and Gardens is now the DoubleTree by Hilton Los Angeles Downtown as it debuts its refreshed Japanese-inspired rooftop garden, the hotel’s signature outdoor event and meeting space.
The DoubleTree by Hilton Los Angeles Downtown’s renovation includes significant design and service upgrades to the hotel’s 434 guestrooms and suites, public spaces and corridors, indoor and outdoor meeting and event spaces, business and fitness centers, and its half-acre rooftop Japanese-style gardens. Upon completion of the renovation, changes to the guest rooms will include the Sweet Dreams bed, 42-inch flat-screen LCD televisions, ergonomic work desks and chairs, and high-speed Internet access upgrades that provide business travelers with efficient in-room working environments. Significant updates to guest bathrooms include new wall treatments, granite countertops, custom-made vanity tables, and Crabtree & Evelyn Citron bath and body products.
The DoubleTree by Hilton Downtown Los Angeles also features 15,000 square feet of flexible function space, which can accommodate up to 650 guests. The hotel offers a 24-hour self-service business center and complimentary printing service that includes print-from-your room convenience. For guests who wish to keep up with their workout program while traveling at the DoubleTree by Hilton Downtown Los Angeles, a 24-hour state-of-the-art fitness facility is now available.
The contemporary Azalea Restaurant has been redesigned to feature Asian-inspired California cuisine based on locally sourced and seasonal foods. The hotel also serves DoubleTree Hotels’ Wake Up DoubleTree breakfast, which includes hot entrees and healthy options. The Rendezvous Lounge features an atrium and a big-screen TV.
