Davidson Hotel Company to Rebrand Los Angeles Westside Hotel As Doubletree by Hilton

Newly-named DoubleTree by Hilton Los Angeles-Westside to Open in May

Davidson Hotel Company today announced that it is rebranding the 368-room Radisson Los Angeles Westside as the DoubleTree by Hilton Los Angeles-Westside.  Davidson manages the property for The Carlyle Group, which owns the hotel, and will operate it under a franchise license agreement with a subsidiary of Hilton Worldwide.  The hotel is located at 6161 West Centinela Avenue, adjacent to Interstate 405 in Culver City and three miles from Los Angeles International Airport.
“Davidson Hotels has proudly managed this Los Angeles Westside hospitality landmark since April 2006,” said Patrick Lupsha, chief operating officer of Davidson Hotel Company.  “Based on our experience in managing several DoubleTree by Hilton hotels in key cities and leisure destinations across the United States, we believe the strong marketing, sales and technology infrastructure, as well as the value added benefit of the highly acclaimed Hilton HHonors guest loyalty program, will lead to greater recognition and success for this hotel and added value for our customers.  This is one of four properties we manage for The Carlyle Group, and we look forward to expanding that relationship.”
The soon-to-be DoubleTree by Hilton Los Angeles-Westside is convenient to Sony Pictures Studios, Venice Beach, Beverly Hills and Santa Monica.  The hotel features an outdoor heated pool and Jacuzzi, fitness room, business center, 20,000 square feet of banquet and meeting facilities, airport shuttle service and two on-site restaurants:  Share, featuring a wonderful selection of 32 wines by the glass, and Culver’s Club Lounge, featuring Live Jazz and Mystery Dinner Theater.
“The current enhancement project at our hotel will have minimal impact on our guests, as we’re focusing on such improvements as new 37-inch LCD televisions in guestrooms with DirecTV HD programming; and alarm clock radios with MP3 connectivity,” said Bill Reider, hotel general manager.  “More importantly, the strategic vision behind this hotel conversion is ideal for the next chapter of this outstanding hotel.  Our new name, look and feel is exciting for our team members, and we look forward to creating a reenergized, rewarding experience for our customers and our community as a DoubleTree by Hilton in the months and years to come.”
