The open day is taking place on Thursday 19 September from 8.30am to 8.30pm and visitors will be able to see for themselves why the Redcliffe Way venue is now regarded as being one of the leading hotels in Bristol for accommodation, meetings, conferences, events, weddings and places to eat.
As well as being able to see the upgraded bedrooms and meeting rooms, the day will include a host of activities such as champagne tasting, spa therapy treatments, food tasting and mixology demonstrations which will showcase what the venue can now offer its customers.
Guests will also be interested to take a look around the historic Kiln Restaurant the renowned eatery that is set within the coned walls of a 17th century kiln, once used for making the world famous Bristol glass.
Close to Temple Meads station and the Temple Quarter Enterprise Zone the hotel is a key asset for the city.
John Dowling, general manager at the hotel said: "The refurbishment has dramatically transformed the hotel and restaurant to one that can offer quality accommodation and place to eat and we're looking forward to showing people around on the day.
"If Bristol is serious about attracting more business, more tourists and more visitors it needs to provide accommodation of this quality.
"The investment is good news for the venue, good news for businesses located close by and is good news for the city as it provides another four-star hotel that visitors to the city are looking for.
"DoubleTree is Hilton's flagship brand and the rebranding of the hotel raises the bar for other Bristol hotels to aspire to. It also reflects the high-quality accommodation and service we now provide and I have no doubt that the kudos associated with Doubletree will help the hotel go from strength to strength.
"We're also confident that the new brand will attract more people to the city who are familiar with the Hilton name. This in turn will help provide a boost the local economy as more people visit."
