Auckland-based Sarin Investments will manage the hotel under a franchise agreement with USAR Napier Limited.
DoubleTree by Hilton Napier will be in the central business district – a short walk to Hastings Street pedestrian mall, the waterfront and Napier’s art-deco attractions.
Construction of the hotel is underway and due for completion early 2019. It will have a modern art-deco design theme running throughout, with a restaurant and bar, fully equipped gym, a boardroom and suites as well as guest rooms.
In addition to the recent signing of DoubleTree by Hilton Karaka, the hotel will join three other DoubleTree branded properties in Queenstown, Christchurch and Wellington.
This is Sarin’s second DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel in New Zealand along with the DoubleTree by Hilton Wellington.
