Proposed Bristol Convention Center — With an Underground Parking Garage — to Hold Groundbreaking Ceremony

The owners and managers of the DoubleTree by Hilton Bristol will host a groundbreaking ceremony on Thursday, September 17, 2020 at 3pm to officially kickoff the construction of an expanded hospitality complex featuring a new 50,000 square foot Bristol Event Center and a 90-suite HOME2 Suites by Hilton hotel.

Located adjacent to the extraordinarily successful DoubleTree by Hilton hotel on Century Drive in Bristol, CT, the expanded hospitality campus will include a conference/event center and a new hotel constructed on four land parcels, including a portion of the existing DoubleTree hotel site.

The event center and hotels are owned by Dr. Gerald Niznick and managed by Prestige Hospitality Group. The 50,000 square foot Bristol Event Center will feature two hospitality suites, a ballroom and outside seating accommodating up to 750 people conference style or 450 people for sit-down dinners/weddings.

The innovative and chic space, combined with sophisticated high-tech audio/visual capabilities, is currently unmatched in central Connecticut. The 90-suite HOME2 Suites by Hilton hotel, one of the fastest-growing brands in Hilton’s history, will feature all-suite stylish accommodations with flexible guest room configurations and inspired amenities.

Underground parking garage and pedestrian walkways will connect the two new hospitality venues with the existing DoubleTree Hotel by Hilton Bristol. Elegant and expansive outdoor gathering areas will complement the indoor venues, providing relaxing fresh-air options for individuals and small groups, private parties, and photographs.
