Hilton Worldwide today signed a management agreement with PT Nurtirta Nusa Lestari to bring the first DoubleTree by Hilton property to Indonesia. Scheduled to open in 2014, the 261-room DoubleTree by Hilton Jakarta-Diponegoro, Indonesia will be conveniently located two kilometers away from the "Golden Triangle," Jakarta's key commercial zone and the high-end Jalan Diponegoro area, where several embassies and many government officials reside.

"As we aggressively expand our footprint in the region through our award-winning brands, DoubleTree by Hilton Jakarta-Diponegoro marks the entry of a third brand under Hilton Worldwide's portfolio into Indonesia, following Hilton Bandung and Conrad Bali. Backed by the strong partnership with PT Nurtirta Nusa Lestari, we are confident that the hotel will continue to ensure our leadership position in commercial capitals in Asia Pacific," said Andrew Clough, senior vice president, development, Middle East & Asia Pacific, Hilton Worldwide.

The 15-storey DoubleTree by Hilton Jakarta-Diponegoro will have an all-day dining restaurant and a bar, as well as a business center, health club, a spa, an outdoor pool, a ballroom and car parking facilities.

DoubleTree by Hilton Jakarta-Diponegoro guests will benefit from the characteristic qualities currently found at the brand's more than 275 DoubleTree by Hilton locations in 23 countries around the world, including the warm welcome of the brand's legendary chocolate chip cookie presented to every guest at check-in; an array of upscale amenities and guest services; the rewards of the Hilton HHonors® guest loyalty program; and a unique and caring team member commitment to the local community.

Rob Palleschi, global head, DoubleTree by Hilton, said, "DoubleTree by Hilton continues to introduce the world's travelers to a rapidly-growing portfolio of remarkable city center hotel locations around the world. The DoubleTree by Hilton Jakarta-Diponegoro is a significant milestone for us and will be an exciting new addition to our hospitality offerings across the Asia Pacific region, as we create a rewarding and friendly hotel experience for the DoubleTree by Hilton globally."

Located along Jalan Pegangsaan Timur in Central Jakarta and within walking distance from Cikini train station, DoubleTree by Hilton Jakarta-Diponegoro is in close proximity to Jakarta's central business district where a number of large financial institutions, multinational corporations, embassies, large retail malls including Grand Indonesia and Plaza Indonesia, as well as the National Monument are situated.

As Indonesia's main gateway, Jakarta is served by a growing number of international airlines and domestic flights and is the largest, most populous city in Indonesia. Offering strong tourism infrastructure, the city is the country's most prominent economic, cultural and political center.

"We believe that the DoubleTree by Hilton Jakarta-Diponegoro creates an ideal business combination of Hilton Worldwide's global legacy of hospitality with our strong local market knowledge. The hotel will feature an urban-resort concept, with extensive landscaping and a well-designed spa facility that we will inspire an outstanding hotel for both holiday makers and business travelers," said Kentjana Widjaja, director, PT Nurtirta Nusa Lestari.
