Cocoa Beach DoubleTree Hotel Reopens After 'No Name' Storm Damage



COCOA BEACH, Fla. - The DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Cocoa Beach Oceanfront, located on what is commonly referred to as Florida's "Space Coast," welcomes guests to celebrate and enjoy its multi-million dollar hotel transformation. The property features comprehensive upgrades throughout the hotel's guest rooms, public areas, functional space, dining outlets, landscaping and includes a new boardwalk to its private access beach. Situated in the home to Kennedy Space Center, near Patrick Air Force Base and Port Canaveral, and offering the closest beach to Orlando, home to Walt Disney World, Sea World and Universal Studios, this Cocoa Beach hotel is the perfect setting for business and leisure.


An unnamed hurricane-like storm, referred to as "fascinating" by the Weather Channel, hit the hotel and surrounding area in October 2011 leading to a complete hotel-wide property update, making DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Cocoa Beach Oceanfront one of the freshest hotel destinations on the Florida coast.


"Our doors are open and we are welcoming guests to enjoy our rejuvenated space, impressive amenities and refreshing, contemporary and inviting look and feel at DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Cocoa Beach Oceanfront," said Christy Galzerano, hotel general manager. "Our team members have worked hard to prepare for our recent re-opening and are committed to delivering a memorable experience for our guests
