DoubleTree by Hilton Grand Opening Celebration

Yesterday we attended the Ribbon Cutting and Grand Opening of the DoubleTree by Hilton Pleasant Prairie Kenosha. The hotel decor received a tasteful and contemporary update and the new owners and management team were on hand to welcome everyone. Stop by and ask for a tour.

When you stay at a DoubleTree by Hilton hotel, you experience all the little things they do to show they care. From thoughtful touches and friendly service to their warm chocolate chip cookie welcome, they make your stay as comfortable as possible, right from the start. They’re proud to be a full-service hotel, where niceness matters above everything, and where they offer guests all the amenities they know and love, from fitness centers and on-site dining to free Wi-Fi. Because they’re situated off I-94 between Milwaukee and Chicago, they are the perfect location to experience the sights of both these beautiful cities. They also have a business center, meeting rooms, and banquet rooms for your next occasion.
