Feb. 6, 2017 -DoubleTree by Hilton New Orleans has announced the appointment of Kristina Bourgeois as director of sales and marketing for the 367-room property located at the base of historic New Orleans' Canal Street in the heart of the Crescent City. No stranger to Hilton, Bourgeois assumes her new role at DoubleTree with more than 15 years of experience with the company. The hospitality veteran, who has directed the development of hospitality and sales professionals in New Orleans since 2001, comes to DoubleTree by Hilton New Orleans following her tenure at both Hilton New Orleans Riverside and Embassy Suites by Hilton New Orleans.

In her new role for the DoubleTree by Hilton New Orleans, Bourgeois will lead the execution of group sales as well as the unveiling and launch of the remodeled property and its amenities. The hotel's $25 million refurbishing includes transformed guest rooms featuring modern décor, an outdoor pool and green initiatives, which incorporate a high efficiency energy management system.

"It's exciting to be a part of the hotel's transformation. I know my years of experience and passion for this city will bring a unique perspective to the team," said Bourgeois. She also notes that she is delighted about the DoubleTree's revitalization and is looking forward to selling the revamped property alongside an equally energetic team. "I'm passionate about promoting our new look, which is inspired by innovation with an eye for modern and energy-efficient design. This DoubleTree hotel will have you doing a double take!"
Nestled directly across from the French Quarter, the reinvented hotel sits on the edge of the bustling Central Business District and showcases a perfect blend of adventure, tradition and contemporary design, complete with 10,000 square feet of event space. The renovation is expected to be completed in late March.
