Bringing Downtown Uptown: DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel St. Augustine Historic District and Oak Room Restaurant & Lounge

A Miracle Makeover: DoubleTree by Hilton 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.

The Only Thing That’s Change is EVERYTHING

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.
