Published: 12/18/2018

HOT SPRINGS NATIONAL PARK, Arkansas — The Clarion Resort on the Lake hotel on Lake Hamilton in Hot Springs National Park, Arkansas, will close in January for a $20 million transformation into a DoubleTree by Hilton hotel.

Rejesh Mehta, owner of Mehta Hospitality, said Monday (December 17, 2018) that “Mehta Hospitality is proud to announce that as of January 2019, the Clarion Resort on the Lake will close for a full head-to-toe renovation into a DoubleTree by Hilton. This $20-million-plus renovation will include updating all plumbing and electrical and implementing a new high-tech Millennial experience including digital keys for room access, controlling all other room features via a mobile device.”

Mehta said the hotel would reopen in late 2019 as “scheduled to re-open in late 2019” as the sixth hotel in Mehta Hospitality’s portfolio, ranging from Central Arkansas to Texas. Two additional hotels are in the works, he said.

The ambitious renovation will bring Hot Springs, and the rest of Arkansas, a hotel “the likes they have never seen before,” Mehta said. 

In its previous incarnations, the hotel has served as a unique destination for guests with its location, meeting space and access to Lake Hamilton. Mehta Hospitality plans on taking all those elements that have made the hotel so unique to the next level and beyond, Mehta said, while bringing in a sense of luxury and style that guests have so long awaited for this location. 

“While belonging to the Hilton hotel family comes with a high level of expected excellency,” Mehta said, “Mehta Hospitality plans to surpass even the expectations of Hilton with the DoubleTree of Hot Springs. On the exterior, the hotel will boast features including a reworked boat dock, beach lake front and pool area along with cabanas, terraces and seating area with fire pit. Inside, world-class design will embrace an all new restaurant and bar, 142 all new modern guest rooms, state-of-the-art fitness center and reconfigured meeting space, to name just a few of the exciting new changes.” 

He concluded, “Mehta Hospitality is thrilled to have the chance to bring such an exciting brand like DoubleTree by Hilton to Hot Springs and hopes that the city is just as excited.  One thing is for sure, once you get to see the finished product, you won’t want to go anywhere else.”
