Binghamton Riverwalk Hotel Becoming A DoubleTree

Bob Joseph/WNBF News

The transition process is almost finished. The Binghamton Riverwalk Hotel is about to turn into a DoubleTree by Hilton.

William “Bud” Nolan is general manager of the downtown hotel on Water Street.

Speaking on WNBF Radio’s Binghamton Now program, Nolan said it’s the culmination of a long project that was launched by Alfred and Alan Weissman, the owners of the hotel.

Alfred Weissman Real Estate of Rye acquired the property about two-and-a-half years ago.

Nolan said the Weissmans have spent a “great deal of time, effort and money” to make improvements to the hotel to meet the specifications required by DoubleTree.

The conversion process sustained a major setback when the hotel was damaged by the September 2011 flood.

Nolan said the flood delayed the transition by about a year.

New exterior signs featuring the DoubleTree name were put into place at the hotel on Wednesday. The hotel has 207 guest rooms and suites, along with a restaurant and lounge.

Nolan said workers will be busy handling some of the final details that need attention before a final inspection by DoubleTree representatives on Monday.

The hotel is scheduled to officially become a DoubleTree by Hilton on Tuesday. A ribbon-cutting ceremony is planned for Tuesday afternoon.
