DoubleTree by Hilton today announced the opening of DoubleTree by Hilton Gatineau-Ottawa, marking entry of Hilton Worldwide's globally-renowned hotel brand into the Canadian province of Quebec.

The hotel is owned and managed by Ken Pierre Investment LPD.
"We are delighted to introduce guests to our new look and name as a part of the distinguished DoubleTree by Hilton brand," said George Chaiban, general manager - DoubleTree by Hilton Gatineau-Ottawa. "Guests have long known our hotel and dedicated team for our commitment to delivering first-class service in an upscale environment.

Blending all the grandeur and charm of the region with contemporary style and premiere comfort, DoubleTree by Hilton Gatineau-Ottawa delivers all of the modern luxuries that business and leisure travelers seek. Set within a charming chateau-style property, the 125-room hotel debuts updated décor and amenities throughout all of the guest rooms, lobby and meeting areas. Guests will enjoy breathtaking views at every turn with rooms that overlook the impeccable private golf course on which the hotel is set, as well as views of the Champlain Bridge, Parliament Buildings and Peace Tower throughout the property. The hotel's serene locale makes it a sought-after destination for guests looking to escape. In addition to the spectacular golf course available to guests, the hotel offers ample on-site amenities for guests seeking a little "R&R," including a full service spa and hair salon, indoor saltwater pool and hot tub.
Ideally-suited for special events, the hotel offers over 21,000 sq. ft. of flexible meeting space, including 19 meeting rooms and first-class catering and event planning teams.

Grand Ballroom accommodates up to 1,200 people theatre-style, and an outdoor gazebo overlooking the property's lush grounds serves as a perfect locale for outdoor ceremonies.
Guests will delight in delicious cuisine at the hotel's upscale Brazilian restaurant, Ekko de Brasil, an authentic churrascaria featuring a variety of 10 skewered meats carved directly at the table. Colorful, Brazilian-inspired décor and live entertainment on weekends create an inviting and exotic ambiance. For guests seeking a more casual atmosphere, Le Bistronöme Restaurant & Bar offers a delectable buffet breakfast and dynamic bistro dinner menu daily.
