A cocktail lounge, smokehouse restaurant, and 200-room hotel offer more than 23,000 square feet of meeting space. ABILENE, Texas- Hilton (NYSE: HLT) today announced the inauguration of the DoubleTree by Hilton Abilene Downtown Convention Centre, which is situated right next to the city’s convention centre and in the centre of the neighborhood’s revitalised cultural sector. With the greatest hotel meeting space in the city, the 200-room hotel will serve as a focal point for social gatherings and business meetings in Abilene.
According to Danny Hughes, executive vice president and president, Americas, Hilton, “We’re thrilled to continue our growth in Abilene with our fifth property in the market – a place that holds a special place in our history. Texas is where Conrad Hilton opened our first hotel, and Abilene is one of the first markets where he sought to expand,” Danny Hughes continues, “With the addition of this incredible property, we look forward to strengthening our presence in the market and continuing to spread the light and warmth of hospitality that Conrad envisioned more than 100 years ago.”
Abilene, which is hailed as the Storybook Capital of America, is a city 150 miles west of Dallas in northern Taylor County. Inviting guests to turn a page of their favourite book with some of their childhood favourites, the location features the greatest public collection of sculptural fairytale characters. The hotel is surrounded by shops, eateries, pubs, libraries, and museums and is directly across from the city’s conference centre. The Adamson-Spaulding Storybook Garden, The Grace Museum, The Antique Station, Abilene Zoo, and the City Centre are all within four miles of the hotel.
“DoubleTree by Hilton Abilene Downtown Convention Center is poised to provide visitors with all they could want or need while away from home. Starting with a warm chocolate chip cookie at check-in, continuing with excellent service, great dining options and a true hub of meeting and event space,” said Shawn McAteer, senior vice president and global head, DoubleTree by Hilton. “We look forward to sharing our warm and caring hospitality common to all DoubleTree by Hilton hotels, in the heart of Abilene.”
Arrangements Modelled After the West Texas Frontier
The 200 guest rooms at the DoubleTree by Hilton Abilene Downtown Convention Centre are modern rustic in style and include a Presidential Suite, four executive suites, and one ground-breaking Five Feet to Fitness with Peloton room.

With a dining space that seats six people, a wine fridge, a full and half bath, and a luxurious king-size bed with city views, the hotel’s Presidential Suite is ideal for entertaining.
The luxurious Five Feet to Fitness with Peloton guest room makes it simpler than ever for visitors to exercise in their rooms.
