What was to be a new Novotel (right next to a new-ish Ibis Styles) is now going to be a new DoubleTree. First Hilton brand in Hobart,


Well located in Macquarie Street, about 5-10 mins walk to the docks precinct. Scheduled opening later this year.

A win for Hilton, there are a lot of Accor hotels around the area and the Luxury Collection Tasman can get a bit pricey. A new Doubletree would do I guess.
 
I actually quite like the DT brand, some are a bit hit and miss, but feel they're good value.
 
Rare in the US.. more common in Asia.
But.. cookies.

Anyhow good to see operators realising not everything has to be an Accor.

Sadly anything with the Hilton brand in Australia has jacked up prices for equivalent hotels of other brands.

Maybe relying on inbound US travellers paying in USD.

So we go back to staying in the quite nice Ibis Styles and shun the inflated prices! :)
(I did have a fairly enjoyable 8 day and night enforced stay at Ibis Styles a couple of years ago!)

A good thing for HBA although MEL is still lacking for HH guests I reckon.

Still, HBA is better than MEL anyway!
