Double Tree by Hilton in Ahmedabad gives an architectural tribute to River Sabarmati

Century-old international hospitality brand – Hilton hotel pays homage to the qualities of continuity and change of Ahmedabad through its stunning River Sabarmati inspired architecture. The 173 room hotel, showcases paintings and photographs in its decor, which are commissioned from Lucknow College of arts and crafts.


Hirise Hospitality Pvt Ltd brings the splendid Double Tree brand of Hilton to the Ahmedabad City. They are the same group who built the environmentally conducive and comfortably affordable ‘Beetle Smartotels’ at Mundra in Kutch, where rooms were created from unwanted shipping containers. Double Tree by Hilton in Ahmedabad, takes its design inspiration from the city. The deftly created wavy facade of this boat-shaped skyscraper took its architectural inspiration from our very own River Sabarmati. The design is created by Noida based architecture firm  Studio Symbiosis. The architects have paid a homage to the cultural synthesis of the city, by depicting the waves which expresses continuity and dynamism. The entrance is exquisite and dramatic, with the column-less cantilever to welcome you. As one enters, what catches the attention is the grand staircase, adding a dash of heritage charm to the modern surroundings. The hotel has 173 rooms on offer.

When we accepted the invitation to the launch event organised on December 14, 2018, our excitement was to witness the art commissioned for the project. After a media interaction we were given a guided tour of the property and it is in the rooms that we found interesting art. The canvasses are mostly acrylic on canvas and the palette is mostly bright green and blue. These are simple yet eye-pleasing artworks of lanscapes done in semi-abstract manner. Some of the rooms also had interesting photographs of heritage sites. Mr. Tanmay Bathwal, Managing Director of Hirise Hospitality Pvt. Ltd. shared that the art has been commissioned from emerging artists and students associated with the Lucknow College of Arts and Crafts. It is a healthy sign that such large sized projects give opportunities to young talent to sell art.


Ahmedabad’s hospitality sector is on an upswing, and we have seen some well curated art earlier in the Hyatt Regency. We wish more and more installation art and visual art from within the city too finds space in the interior decor of the hotel. Double Tree by Hilton in Ahmedabad is the hospitality majors 19th property in India. The group runs over 5500 properties across 109 countries across the globe.
