EVANSVILLE, IN (FEBRUARY 3, 2017) — DoubleTree by Hilton Evansville part of DoubleTree by Hilton’s fast-growing global portfolio of upscale, full-service hotels, has completed construction of the five-story, $61 million DoubleTree by Hilton Evansville. DoubleTree by Hilton Evansville is the only full service convention hotel available in the downtown area. In addition to being connected via sky bridge to the Ford Center and the Old National Events Plaza, the hotel is next door to the Indiana University Medical School, currently under construction. The hotel is owned by HCW Evansville Hotel, LLC. and managed by Aimbridge Hospitality.

Official ribbon cutting with Evansville Mayor Lloyd Winnecke and opening of the DoubleTree by Hilton Evansville is scheduled for Tuesday, February 14, 2017 at 10:00 a.m. CST. The public is welcome to tour the hotel throughout the day, reserve a room and stay the night, enjoy a meal in our Stone City Grill or unwind in the Quarry Bar before the University of Evansville game later that evening.

“We are excited to be opening and working with the City and Evansville-Vanderburgh Convention and Visitors Bureau to bring conventions and new visitors to our vibrant downtown. Our DoubleTree by Hilton caring culture will provide a level of service second to none for both the community and our guests,” said Tracy Wiley, general manager, DoubleTree by Hilton Evansville.

“Evansville is Indiana’s third largest city and is fast becoming a center of academics, business and entertainment. In the last few years, the capacity to welcome conventions have grown and Evansville is now able to attract this type of business by offering a full service hotel connected to the Convention Center and Arena. We are thrilled to be one of the key components in the successful downtown Evansville revitalization,” said Rick Huffman, CEO/Manager of HCW Evansville Hotel, LLC. “DoubleTree by Hilton is a global, award-winning hotel brand known for its outstanding service culture and will be a positive addition to the city for business, convention, and leisure guests.”

The five-story hotel’s exterior design aesthetic is sleek and modern, complementing the surrounding area. The interior’s overall color palette and materials pay homage to Evansville’s role and history during the industrial revolution as a top exporter of crushed stone. Guests will see these elements blended into the spaces with clean lines but evoking a mid-century feel with warm color scheme.

Guests will feel at home in the hotel’s inviting spaces. DoubleTree by Hilton Evansville provides guests with a full complement of services and amenities, including 241 guestrooms and suites. Hotel amenities include salt water pool and courtyard, covered garage parking, complimentary shuttle within three mile radius of hotel, 24-hour fitness center, business center and complimentary Wi-Fi internet in guestrooms and public space.
