JAMESTOWN – A Downtown Jamestown hotel is celebrating its one-year anniversary.
The DoubleTree by Hilton, at 150 W. 4th St., first opened on Feb. 28, 2019.
General Manager Brandon Odell joined his staff for a ‘cookie cutting’ in the hotel’s lobby Friday morning.
Odell says when visitors walk through the door, they are amazed at how newly remodeled architecture of the establishment fits in with Jamestown’s historic look.
“They look at the historical aspects of Downtown Jamestown and they look around, see the bricks, and they come in and are like ‘wow, it’s a beautiful hotel,’ and you get the industrial chic design that we have here,” explained Odell.
The 100,000-square foot hotel features 147 rooms, a pool, nearby parking, ball room, and many other amenities, including a full-service restaurant.
The business employs around 70 people, but Odell says they generally hire more help during the summer.
