HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WOWK) – Local residents and community leaders in Huntington are celebrating a landmark achievement for the hospitality industry in West Virginia. The DoubleTree in Huntington hosted a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony with the local community this afternoon.
It is the first DoubleTree Hotel in the state of West Virginia. The hotel was originally built in 1971 as a Holiday Inn and went through many different owners over years.
The hotel has been completely renovated, and many hope it brings new energy to downtown Huntington.
“I think bringing life back into the Old Pullman and converting it into the DoubleTree will help Huntington on that path to revitalization,” said Rick Dinan, DoubleTree Huntington.
The hotel officially opened its doors on May 10.
