WHITTIER, CA — The Los Angeles suburb of Whittier has welcomed the opening of the DoubleTree by Hilton Whittier Los Angeles, the latest addition to the growing portfolio of DoubleTree by Hilton, one of Hilton‘s 13 hotel brands.
The eight-story hotel is located approximately 16 miles southeast of downtown Los Angeles, in the heart of Whittier’s tree-lined uptown business and historic district. Standing as the largest hotel in Whittier with 202 luxurious guest rooms and suites, the newly-opened hotel is within walking distance to cultural treasures, such as the Jonathan Bailey House, Whittier Museum and numerous shops, antique stores and vibrant cafes. It was formerly a Radisson Hotel and then the Whittier Grand Hotel.
The hotel is a prime choice for business and vacation travelers, given its close proximity to Los Angeles-area businesses and Southern California attractions. Just a short drive away, visitors can find Knott’s Berry Farm, Disneyland and relaxing Pacific Ocean seashore communities, such as Seal Beach, Sunset Beach and Newport Beach.
“Lovely Whittier is a quiet oasis amid its action-packed SoCal neighbors, but it’s also easily accessible to a multitude of destinations throughout metropolitan Los Angeles,” said Dianna Vaughan, senior vice president and global head, DoubleTree by Hilton. “It is an ideal location for our newest property, where we look forward to welcoming guests with the acts of kindness that mean so much, beginning with our warm DoubleTree Cookie greeting at check-in.”
DoubleTree by Hilton Whittier Los Angeles has a number of dining options on the menu, including Sophia’s California Bistro. Guests may select from the finest contemporary Californian cuisine as well as a wonderful variety of traditional culinary favorites for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Adjacent is the Ultra Lounge, a sports bar and gathering spot for cocktails and appetizing light fare.
In addition to the brand’s iconic warm DoubleTree Cookie welcome, the hotel provides each guest with a comfortable, stylishly decorated room or suite, with all the modern, thoughtful amenities expected from the DoubleTree brand. Accommodations include DoubleTree Sweet Dreams® Sleep Experience beds, a work desk with WiFi access, and views of downtown or the nearby Puente Hills.
With more than 12,000 square feet of meeting space, DoubleTree by Hilton Whittier Los Angeles can accommodate up to 600 guests for business conferences, weddings and social events. The Grand Ballroom is ideal for banquets seating as many as 400 attendees, and eight smaller rooms offer flexible meeting options. A state-of-the-art sound system and A/V equipment are also available, as is a fully-equipped 24-hour business center.
The hotel also offers a heated outdoor pool and hot tub, and a 24-hour fitness center, featuring new Precor equipment and a view of the pool and tropical courtyard. It also provides a full complement of services and DoubleTree by Hilton brand amenities, including an assortment of gourmet in-room tea and coffee offerings by The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf®, and a refreshing array of the Crabtree & Evelyn natural skin and body care line.
“For years, this hotel has been part of the fabric of downtown Whittier,” said Craig Carlson, general manager, DoubleTree by Hilton Whittier Los Angeles. “Our management team and staff are delighted to be joining the DoubleTree by Hilton portfolio and to be providing our guests with the simple pleasures of travel that can make their stay even more memorable.”
