On June 28, Hilton Worldwide debuted yet another addition to its DoubleTree by Hilton brand portfolio, which currently tallies 460 hotels in 38 countries across the globe.
In a prime location overlooking the harbor, the new 226-room DoubleTree by Hilton Veracruz reinforces the brand’s target of Latin America growth as Mexico’s third DoubleTree and the 11th hotel in Latin America.
Jose Munoz, vice president of operations, Mexico and Central America, Hilton Worldwide, noted that Hilton Worldwide is proud to continue its sustained growth throughout the region: "DoubleTree by Hilton Veracruz is a welcome addition to our 42 operating hotels across several brands welcoming travelers throughout Mexico, as well as more than 20 projects currently in our development pipeline.”
Located 1.5 miles from downtown, eight miles from the airport, and 5.5 miles from the Boca del Rio business, shopping and recreation center, the property is in a prime perch to accommodate both leisure and business travelers, as well as corporate and social functions.
On the leisure travel front, Veracruz is widely celebrated for its cultural heritage. It’s home to such historical and natural sights as parks, squares, colonial buildings, churches and museums. The largest in Latin America, the Veracruz Aquarium features eight halls brimming with marine species.
Some 20 minutes from the hotel is the 16th century San Juan de Ulua, a large historic complex consisting of a former palace and fortress once used as a prison to detain some of the country’s most notorious criminals.
“The DoubleTree by Hilton brand has inspired travelers worldwide,” said Dianna Vaughan, senior vice president and global brand head of DoubleTree by Hilton and Curio — A Collection by Hilton. “We are very pleased to extend our presence in Mexico through Veracruz and welcome our guests with our classic warm chocolate chip cookie.”
From those warm chocolate chip cookies upon arrival to encounters with Team Members dedicated to the brand’s CARE (Creating a Rewarding Experience) program, DoubleTree by Hilton service is designed to enhance a guest’s travel experience with the human touch.
The property’s nine-story building features a contemporary modern style with wide aisles, marble floors, and superb ocean and harbor views. Each guest room incorporates the brand’s exclusive Sweet Dreams bed by DoubleTree Sleep Experience, 40-inch flat screen TVs with premium channels and spacious bathrooms stocked with London-based Aroma Actives amenities. Suites up the appeal with a separate living area with a 32-inch TV and private bedroom with a 49-inch TV.
Business travelers can get down to business at hand while on the go with such design perks as ergonomic chairs at workstations, multi-contact for technology devices, direct sunlight filtering into rooms, plus complimentary Wi-Fi throughout the property. Some 19,000 square feet of function space spreads out into meeting rooms and ocean view ballrooms.
Guests of the DoubleTree by Hilton Veracruz also enjoy the brand’s Wake-up DoubleTree Breakfast buffet, laundry facilities, fitness center and valet parking. Enxebre restaurant merges traditional Veracruz cuisine with an international menu, while the ocean view Bar 47 presents a bevy of libations and signature cocktails in a space decked out with flat screens for watching professional sporting events and other entertainment.
