Hilton Worldwide announced the company will be opening another Malaysian location in 2016. DoubleTree Resort by Hilton Penang will be located near the UNESCO World Heritage site of George Town.
The company expects to renovate the existing building’s exterior, as well as rooms, suites and public facilities. The Penang location will feature 318 ocean-and-courtyard-view rooms, complete with private balconies. Guests will be able to choose from three onsite gourmet restaurants and bars, including an all-day restaurant, a lobby bar and a café. The new resort will also feature meeting and event spaces, an outdoor pool and a children’s recreational area.
Guests staying with DoubleTree Resort by Hilton Penang will also get to experience the surrounding city. The hotel will be located just 15 kilometers from George Town and next to Jalan Batu Ferringhi, a popular destination for nightlife, dining, shopping and walking along the beach.
