PIKESVILLE, MD – MARCH 1, 2019 – On the heels of their recent acquisition of the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel and Conference Center, Blue Ocean is in the process of beginning the renovation of the hotel’s ballroom and conference space. The ballroom, meeting and event spaces currently total 12,000 square feet. Under the renovation plan, Blue Ocean will completely overhaul and enhance the existing spaces with new furniture, light fixtures, ceilings and wall finishes. To further enhance the functionality and capacity of the venue, a large addition to the ballroom and pre-function spaces will add an additional 7,500 square feet. When completed, the expanded and flexible spaces will accommodate events with occupancies up to 1,500 guests. The expanded rooms will also feature moveable partitions – easily enabling custom space designs for an array of events and gatherings.

This new space will be ideal for hosting large events, conferences, and seminars, as well as weddings, social events, and group functions. With a projected completion during the Fall of 2019, the hotel’s current event space will be transformed to include 19,500 square feet of completely renovated luxury event and meeting space. Benefiting both organizations as well as private groups, the Hilton’s new hotel and conference center is poised to become a premier event space within Baltimore.

Blue Ocean President Jonathan Ehrenfeld states, “The DoubleTree has always been an attractive and convenient choice for hosting events in Baltimore. With the completion of the ballroom and event space renovation and expansion, the venue will be exceptionally well-positioned to serve our community. We have waited too long for a premier event facility in Baltimore County. The DoubleTree will finally deliver this with a new and innovative experience.”

The hotel and conference center is conveniently located in Pikesville, just minutes away from Thurgood Marshall (BWI) Airport, the Inner Harbor, and many other various Baltimore attractions. DoubleTree staff and & food program personnel will cater this amazing new space, and continue in their ongoing quest to provide the highest quality food and beverage experience, coupled with their amazing service and attention to detail.
