ABILENE, TX – Hilton announced today the opening of DoubleTree by Hilton Abilene Downtown Convention Center, located adjacent to the city’s downtown convention center and in the heart of the revitalized cultural district.
“We’re thrilled to continue our growth in Abilene with our fifth property in the market – a place that holds a special place in our history. Texas is where Conrad Hilton opened our first hotel, and Abilene is one of the first markets where he sought to expand,” said Danny Hughes, executive vice president and president, Americas, for Hilton. “With the addition of this incredible property, we look forward to strengthening our presence in the market and continuing to spread the light and warmth of hospitality that Conrad envisioned more than 100 years ago.”
“DoubleTree by Hilton Abilene Downtown Convention Center is poised to provide visitors with all they could want or need while away from home. Starting with a warm chocolate chip cookie at check-in, continuing with excellent service, great dining options and a true hub of meeting and event space,” said Shawn McAteer, senior vice president and global head, DoubleTree by Hilton. “We look forward to sharing our warm and caring hospitality common to all DoubleTree by Hilton hotels, in the heart of Abilene.”
