DoubleTree Drops Hilton Branding, Converts to Hotel Silver Spring

The DoubleTree by Hilton hotel at 8727 Colesville Rd. in downtown Silver Spring has changed its name to Hotel Silver Spring and dropped its Hilton branding.

It appears that the changes took place overnight on April 1.

A parking valet working at the hotel said that ownership is staying the same, however, the conversion of the nearby Sheraton to a DoubleTree in 2021 seemingly forced the change.

It is unclear if any jobs will be affected.

“The Hotel Silver Spring, formerly DoubleTree by Hilton Washington DC- Silver Spring, is making its debut in the vibrant neighborhood of Silver Spring, Maryland,” the hotel’s website reads.  “The Hotel Silver Spring is a casual place to meet whether it’s business or pleasure, stay near all the neighborhood’s popular attractions, and explore the famous sights of Washington DC. The hotel is in a prime location less than half a mile from Downtown Silver Spring, an Entertainment District with over 150 dining options, and the Fillmore Music Venue.  The Hotel Silver Spring is 6.6 miles from DC with our nation’s famous attractions including the U.S. Capitol and White House.  ​​The attractions are a short Metro train ride and the station is conveniently located half a mile from the hotel.  With 14,452 square feet of flexible meetings, The Hotel Silver Spring is an ideal place to meet, stay, and explore. ”

The hotel originally opened in 1963, according to Hotels.com, and was last renovated in 2014 (video of the renovation below). The hotel housed the popular Sergio Ristorante Italiano until the restaurant’s closure in 2020.

The adjacent Hampton Inn and Homewood Suites hotel at 8728 Colesville Rd. closed in 2021 after being sold to United Therapeutics, which plans to expand the company’s Unisphere campus on the site.
