Charlottesville, VA -- July 22, 2019  - DoubleTree by Hilton Charlottesville, part of DoubleTree by Hilton’s global portfolio of more than 560 upscale hotels, announces the completion of an extensive multi-million dollar renovation. The multi-year project includes complete structural and interior design upgrades to all guest rooms, the front desk, business center and lobby, which now features added fireplaces, additional seating and a comfortable library.

The hotel, located just five miles from the University of Virginia, also now holds a brand new restaurant, Root 29 Craft Kitchen & Bar, featuring cuisine made from locally sourced ingredients.

Opened back in May, Root 29 Craft Kitchen & Bar tastefully blends a casual and upscale atmosphere, thanks to amenities such as a 16-seat bar, wine wall, fireplace, private dining options, big-screen TVs, and happy hour specials.
