DoubleTree by Hilton, one of Hilton Worldwide’s 13 market-leading brands, announced today the opening of Doubletree by Hilton Van. The newest property in the brand’s fast-growing global portfolio of upscale, full-service hotels, joins nine DoubleTree by Hilton hotels already open in Turkey. Turkey’s Prime Minister, Ahmet Davutoğlu, visited the hotel for a pre-opening event on Saturday in conjunction with a conference set up by Ministry of Health.
“Turkey is an important, expanding market for our brand and we are excited to debut our tenth DoubleTree by Hilton in the country with the opening of DoubleTree by Hilton Van,” said Dianna Vaughan, senior vice president and global head, DoubleTree by Hilton. “We believe in making all of our guests feel welcome, and we work hard to ensure their stay with us is memorable. We are thrilled to bring our care-focused culture to this beautiful hotel, and look forward to delivering exceptional experiences to guests visiting Van, whether they are traveling for business, pleasure or a little bit of both.”
Located just a short distance from the Muraidye Waterfalls, Nemrut Crater Lake, and with quick access into the city, DoubleTree by Hilton Van is perfectly positioned for guests to explore all that the area has to offer. Many of the hotel’s 94 guest rooms, including 13 suites, offer stunning views overlooking Lake Van, and guests will enjoy a contemporary and comfortable environment throughout the hotel. For those looking to relax and rejuvinate, DoubleTree by Hilton Van features a traditional Turkish Spa, swimming pool and fitness centre.
The hotel boasts six restaurants and lounges, including the Esperanza Restaurant offering all- day dining. For guests looking to unwind and socialise whilst taking in the impressive views over the city, they can head to Bar De Cielo, for a wide selection of cocktails and non-alcoholic drinks including snacks. DoubleTree by Hilton Van features seven flexible meeting rooms for up to 1,000 guests, as well as a pillar-free, 713 square meter (nearly 7,700 square foot) ballroom. The space can also be divided into two individual conference rooms, and includes a large foyer area, providing a great space for pre-dinner receptions.
