Del

DoubleTree by Hilton, one of Hilton Worldwide’s (NYSE: HLT) 13 market-leading brands, has broadened its presence in Colombia today with the opening of DoubleTree by Hilton Bogotá – Calle 100. The hotel joins the recently-opened DoubleTree by Hilton Bogotá - Parque 93 as the brand’s first two properties in Colombia. Both hotels are managed by Hoteles Cosmos, and the DoubleTree by Hilton Bogotá – Calle 100 is owned by Inversiones Libra S.A.

Set in a quiet section of the Chico neighborhood in the capital city of Bogotá, the ultra-modern, 88-room, full-service hotel offers easy access to the city’s dynamic business district and the grand Autopista Norte highway. The Bogotá World Trade Center, Park 93, and Usaquén, which boasts numerous nightclubs, gourmet restaurants and elegant shops, are all within a short walk and Bogotá’s El Dorado International Airport is located roughly less than nine miles northeast.

“The emergence of Bogotá as a fast-growing business and tourism destination makes it an ideal location for DoubleTree by Hilton,” said Dianna Vaughan, senior vice president and global head, DoubleTree by Hilton. “Our staff around the world creates rewarding experiences for our guests every day, and we are thrilled to bring our care-focused service to DoubleTree by Hilton Bogotá – Calle 100. This spirit of hospitality is complemented by the stunning décor, well-appointed guestrooms and exceptional amenities in this new hotel, and we look forward to making sure every experience is a memorable one for our guests.”

Each stay at DoubleTree by Hilton Bogotá – Calle 100 begins with a warm DoubleTree chocolate chip cookie, and refreshing towel at check-in. The hotel offers complimentary Wi-Fi throughout its public areas and guest rooms and a 24-hour business center/connectivity lounge, plus it is the area’s only hotel offering a 24-hour fitness center featuring Precor equipment, steam room, Irish sauna and indoor swimming pool.

DoubleTree by Hilton Bogotá – Calle 100 perfectly balances emblematic design with contemporary luxury. Built to maximize natural light, the hotel offers stunning views of the nearby Andes Mountains or bustling downtown Bogotá from many of its guest and meeting rooms. Its sleek modern elements feature brown and light teal blue color tones, while marble finishes accent the spacious and open property.

The hotel’s guest rooms feature high ceilings and trendy décor, with numerous modern travel comforts such as soundproof windows, air conditioning and bathrooms with a marble shower. Guests will enjoy all the comforts of home with a 42-inch HDTV, mini-refrigerator, coffeemaker, multimedia hub and laptop-sized safe. The hotel’s suites offer a whirlpool bath and a separate living area and dining room.

The hotel is ideal for business meetings, weddings and other special gatherings, thanks to nearly more than 16,000 square feet of meeting and event space. Its 20 meeting areas include an amphitheater, executive boardroom and a grand ballroom accommodating up to 1,200 guests. For smaller groups, the hotel offers the Meetings Simplified by DoubleTree by Hilton package which includes the meeting room, basic meeting Wi-Fi, meeting room supplies including a flipchart, markers, extension and power cord, and all day non-alcoholic beverage service. Catering services and a dedicated event staff are available to enhance any event.

“DoubleTree by Hilton Bogotá – Calle 100 brings a level of elegance and style that distinguishes it from other hotels within this vibrant neighborhood,” said Olga Mantilla Lievano, general manager, DoubleTree by Hilton Bogotá – Calle 100. “We are excited to offer a world-class travel experience for business and leisure guests, who are sure to appreciate the globally-renowned service that distinguishes DoubleTree by Hilton.”

Delectable international and Colombian cuisine is available in the hotel’s Gastronomy Center, which includes three restaurants, two bars and a bakery. The Guadalupe Restaurant offers an extensive international menu, focused on grilled meats, soups, and gourmet specialties. The 2,600 Meters Bar, on the second floor, pays tribute to Bogota’s location above sea level and title as the city that is 2,600 meters closer to the stars. DoubleTree by Hilton’s Wake Up DoubleTree Breakfast is available in Guadalupe Restaurant for guests, while those preferring to dine in the comfort of their room can conveniently order room service 24-hours a day.

In addition to the iconic warm chocolate chip cookie welcome, guests will enjoy other DoubleTree by Hilton brand amenities, including a variety of gourmet coffee and tea, the refreshing London-based Aroma Actives natural skin and body care line, and an industry-recognized service culture built around the idea of CARE, which stands for Create a Rewarding Experience for guests, Team Members and the community.
