Bringing Downtown Uptown: DoubleTree by
St. Augustine Historic District and Oak Room Restaurant & Lounge
By Ama Reynolds
A Miracle Makeover: DoubleTree by
Hotel St. Augustine Historic District
Remember Sluggers?? The bar on San Marco somehow attached to the hotel? Right
across from the Mission? Well. To say the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel St. Augustine Historic District and The Oak Room Restaurant &
Lounge are stratospheric improvements upon both is an egregious understatement.
Sluggers seemed to attract some of the most boisterous drinkers in town, and
the hotel, well, it was an eyesore, too. So. As you drive down San Marco and
see the breathtaking transformation, you’re likely to shout. Even you locals,
for this place is truly a thrill to behold.
Where The Only Thing That’s Changed
A Sparkling Jewel Among St. Augustine
Historic District Hotels
Everything, and I mean everything about this brand-new hotel has changed–for
the ultimate good of the city, its visitors, and even us locals, for in
addition to a brand-new, stunningly beautiful and
more-than-your-average-chain-hotel originality (wait until you see the floors!
the restaurant! the ballroom! the original artwork for sale–on every floor!
the bespoke woodwork! the period-style wall hangings! I could go on and on!).
As you enter DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel St. Augustine Historic District, you’ll
find warmth and welcome. From the aged wooden plank floors to the yellows and
oranges of the modern furniture, arranged like a cozy living room conveniently
situated right next to a chic and seductive bar, square in shape, low in
lighting, the whole scene is thoroughly inviting.
