After several months of renovations, the DoubleTree by Hilton Philadelphia-Valley Forge is now open as the Alloy – King of Prussia, a DoubleTree by Hilton. The rebrand includes 25,000 square feet of updated meeting space, a new restaurant and a state-of-the-art fitness center, as well as new artworks and designs throughout the hotel. The renovation is part of a partnership between Whitman Peterson, an institutional real estate private equity company, and Concord Hospitality.  

“We and Concord are so excited about the transformation of this property from a traditional DoubleTree Hotel to this reinvigorated, beautiful soft-branded DoubleTree now known as ‘the Alloy’,” says Paul Novak, managing director at Whitman Peterson.  

The 25,000 square feet of meeting and event space includes five new event rooms and outdoor spaces. Venue space sizes range from 430 square feet to 7,020 square feet, accommodating many types of gatherings. The new restaurant on the property, Hammer & Fire, features locally-sourced ingredients, a hyper-local beer program and a chef-inspired menu.  

The newly rebranded lifestyle hotel will also have a mothers’ nursing room, an outdoor dining patio and more. All 327 guest rooms will be thoroughly cleaned with Hilton’s CleanStay program, so guests can be confident during their stay away from home.  

Despite an overall crushing year for the hospitality industry in Pennsylvania, some seeds of hope have been planted and are finally sprouting in the form of new hotel openings. These new properties on the horizon have ample meeting and event space up for grabs, all within close proximity of each other. As capacities allowances increase, check out the new real estate for meetings and events at the following hotels.

 

Just like the rest of the world, the hospitality and travel industries slammed to a halt when the pandemic hit last March. Some sectors within them had built-in solutions to focus on, such as hotels limiting capacities and restaurants focusing on takeout and delivery. But for many businesses within the related meetings and events realm, there were no natural alternatives to turn to.

 

After 7 years of planning, the VanDyk Mortgage Convention Center is now open in downtown Muskegon. The official ribbon cutting took place on April 12, 2021.
