The Doubletree Hilton Hotel in Port Huron and its staff will receive an award from Governor Gretchen Whitmer on September 5th at the Detroit Opera House. The Doubletree was recognized in the Corporate Community Leader category of The 2019 Governor’s Service Awards. The service awards went to 43 businesses, individuals, and nonprofit organizations who have demonstrated a commitment to give back to their communities.
The Doubletree, formerly the Thomas Edison Inn, was refurbished in 2015 as the Blue Water Convention Center was being constructed and attached at the north side of the hotel. Gov. Whitmer said, “I’m proud to present the Governor’s Service Awards to this year’s recipients as recognition of their sacrifice and dedication throughout our state.” Other honorees in the corporate category were BASF, DTE, Bosch, Spectrum Health, and Trinseo.
