On-site bike rentals and complimentary shuttles take guests to all the action, including mountain biking, hiking, shopping, dining, concerts, fly fishing, golf and more. For dining, the hotel’s locally-sourced restaurant, Pivot62, features shareable plates and hand-crafted cocktails, complete with floor-to-ceiling views of the Rocky Mountains. If work calls while on vacation, the coworking capabilities in the lounge help guests multitask without missing any of the action. For relaxation, the massage treatment rooms work out all the kinks before guests take a dip in the outdoor pool and hot tub, or cozy up by the fireplace and fire pits while star gazing at the night sky.DoubleTree by Hilton Pomona (Opened March 2018): This Southern California hotel offers 132 guest rooms and suites featuring views of the surrounding San Jose Hills. The design is modern, yet rustic, making it the perfect option for travelers looking to explore nearby Los Angeles while experiencing the charm and mountain views of a small town. The on-site Vita Italian Bar & Grill is a modern Italian restaurant that uses the freshest ingredients sourced from Cal Poly Pomona and other surrounding farms, and the VINO Lobby Bar features local wines for guests to sip on. Guests can enjoy the California sunshine at the hotel’s outdoor, saline swimming pool and whirlpool spa or at nearby Bonelli Regional Park or Raging Waters waterpark.DoubleTree by Hilton Nashua (Opened April 2018): This newly renovated southern New Hampshire hotel offers easy access to downtown Boston and is only 15 minutes from Manchester-Boston Regional Airport.
