Carson, CA - The DoubleTree by Hilton Carson, located at the crossroads of the South Bay in greater Los Angeles, has completed a multi-million hotel transformation project, which includes comprehensive upgrades throughout the hotel's guest rooms, public areas, function space and dining outlets. Centrally located within a 25-minute drive of downtown Los Angeles and Long Beach, the hotel is a proud sponsor of the Home Depot Center Sports and Entertainment Complex (home of the LA Galaxy and U.S. National Soccer Team), which is located less than two miles from the hotel.

"The comprehensive makeover of the DoubleTree by Hilton Carson refreshes our hotel with a cool, contemporary and inviting look and feel for our guests," said Larry Saward, hotel general manager. "Our team members are more excited than ever before to share our new look, new energy and new vision to create a rewarding and memorable hotel experience for both visitors and residents alike.

Purchased in 2010 through a partnership with Platinum Equity, Ensemble Investments implemented a strategy with DoubleTree by Hilton to retain the franchise and re-license the DoubleTree by Hilton Carson by implementing a comprehensive renovation and change in management company.  Urgo Hotels has managed the hotel successfully throughout the hotel refurbishment project, since 2010. The DoubleTree by Hilton Carson is operated under a franchise license agreement with a subsidiary of Hilton Worldwide.  The 225-room DoubleTree by Hilton Carson, was redesigned by HFS Concepts 4, who developed a plan that improved the guest experience in all aspects of the hotel. 

The new design of the guest rooms at the DoubleTree by Hilton Carson focuses on contemporary sophistication and functionality. With a fresh and modern look, the clean lines are accented with rich colors, bold patterns and tactile textures. The guestrooms received a completely new contemporary and comfortable guestroom furniture and finishes package, including 37" high definition televisions. 

The guest room upgrades complement the completion of the DoubleTree by Hilton Carson lobby and public areas. New lobby furnishings, carpeting, wall covering and window treatments create a relaxing and inviting setting for reading, working on a laptop or meeting with colleagues. Incredibly simple, but surprisingly sophisticated, the redesigned lobby is a refreshing gathering place for guests and visitors.

The hotel's meeting and banquet rooms, along with the hotel restaurant, have been greatly improved to welcome guests for great lunches, dinners, banquets, meetings and receptions of 10 to 500 guests. More than 5,600 square feet of meeting space has been upgraded and outfitted with cutting-edge technology. The restaurant has been redesigned to offer superior breakfast, lunch and dinner service in a casual, yet sophisticated setting. The bar has been transformed and now opens up to the lobby to create a more dynamic experience and better access.  .Guests also will find an expanded patio lounge with a new fire pit and landscaping at poolside.  And a new fitness center with the latest in Precor weighttraining and cardio equipment now welcomes guests with great workouts at the beginning or end of a busy day.
