DoubleTree by Hilton is an American hotel chain. It is part of Hilton Worldwide. Most DoubleTree hotels are independently owned and operated by franchisees, but some are owned and/or managed by Hilton Worldwide.
The first DoubleTree hotel opened in Scottsdale, Arizona, in 1969. The Doubletree Corporation merged with Promus Hotel Corporation in December 1997, bringing together the Doubletree, Red Lion, Hampton Inn, and Embassy Suites brands. In December 1999, Hilton Hotels Corporation acquired Promus Hotel Corporation which brought Doubletree Hotels and other Promus hotel brands under the umbrella of the newly renamed Hilton Worldwide. In early 2011, Hilton Worldwide launched a logo and name rebranding for the chain, replacing the name "Doubletree" with "DoubleTree by Hilton".
