The Doubletree by Hilton Experience
As one of the upscale hotel brands in the Hilton Family of Hotels, Doubletree by Hilton will introduce business travelers and tourists in China to the brand’s longstanding tradition of distinctively designed properties that reflect the destination and surrounding area. Other Doubletree by Hilton characteristic qualities include the warm worldwide welcome of the brand’s legendary chocolate chip cookie to every guest at check-in, the rewards of the prestigious Hilton HHonors® loyalty programme and a unique and caring commitment to the communities in which they operate.
Doubletree by Hilton believes in a set of business values that make their hotels a desirable place for employees to work and a satisfying place for travelers to stay. “Our ultimate goal at Doubletree is to create positive, long-lasting memories for our guests so that they will develop a strong emotional bond and loyalty with our brand for their future travel,” commented Horton.
According to hotel general manager, Justin Guo, “Hotels across Asia are respected around the world for their outstanding attention to detail and approach to service. The Doubletree by Hilton Beijing will differentiate itself even further through a unique combination of contemporary style and a refreshingly caring and relaxed approach to hospitality and service. Training programs developed by the Doubletree by Hilton brand encourage employees to deliver an exceptional guest experience where guests feel welcomed and appreciated. By bringing this level of energy to our business, we hope that we can help travelers get a little bit more out of their travel experiences. Based on initial feedback and research from both hotel guests and team members, we expect this new approach to hospitality is going to be well received by travelers to Beijing.”
