Jul 27, 2011

The DoubleTree by Hilton Denver Tech Center, owned and operated by Stonebridge Companies, has been awarded the prestigious CARE Cup for exceptional guest experience, employee satisfaction and service to its community.

Denver, CO (July 11, 2011) Stonebridge Companies, a well-known Denver-based hotel ownership, operations and development company, has received top honors for one of the properties it owns and operates: the DoubleTree by Hilton Denver Tech Center. Known as the CARE Cup, this traveling award is bestowed quarterly to one small and one large hotel, out of 250 DoubleTree properties worldwide. The DoubleTree by Hilton Denver Tech Center won the CARE Cup in the large hotel category. 

"Delivering a superb guest experience is the driving force at Stonebridge Companies, and we are honored to receive the CARE Cup, which recognizes our enduring commitment to customer service," said Navin Dimond, president and chief executive officer of Stonebridge Companies. "The DoubleTree by Hilton Denver Tech Center has a supremely talented team and leadership, and this award comes due to their consistent and enthusiastic efforts." Aaron Alberding is the General Manager of the DoubleTree by Hilton Denver Tech Center. 

In addition to outstanding customer service, the CARE Cup award criteria include a demonstration of high employee satisfaction and local community involvement. The CARE Cup began its celebrated global journey in 1986, and has reinforced the CARE culture of DoubleTree by Hilton over the past fifteen years. Each hotel has an employee team that focuses on guest service improvements, community service coordination and enhanced employee satisfaction, so the standards for CARE success are unique to each DoubleTree property and are internally driven. 

The DoubleTree by Hilton Denver Tech Center won the CARE cup specifically for its excellent guest service scores and year over year growth of 12 points. The hotel sponsors and supports several community initiatives and organizations including the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Light the Night Walk, the Denver Rescue Mission, the Aurora food bank, and the Teaching Kids to CARE program through DoubleTree by Hilton. 

The DoubleTree by Hilton Denver Tech Center is located in the heart of the Denver Technological Center, 10 miles south of downtown Denver, Mile High Stadium, the Pepsi Center, Coors Field and the Colorado Convention Center. It recently invested $15 million in renovations to its guest rooms, meeting space and hotel amenities. The DoubleTree by Hilton Denver Tech Center address is 7801 East Orchard Road, Greenwood Village, CO 80111. For more information and reservations, call 303-779-6161 or visit
