DoubleTree Bloomfield Hills to be The Kingsley

By Lisa Brody

Everything old is new again – the former Kingsley Inn on Woodward in Bloomfield Hills, which reopened in 2018 as Double Tree by Hilton Bloomfield Hills, will once again be known as The Kingsley.

According to a press release, “A boutique hotel with stories to tell, The Kingsley radiates mid-century cool, accented by modern public and private spaces which spark memorable connections that are simply beyond ordinary. Each of the contemporary-style guest rooms includes a spacious sitting area, plush bedding, and high-speed internet access.”

The hotel, first opened in 1959, underwent a complete renovation over a year and nine months in 2018. Renovation costs were in excess of $20 million for the 144-room hotel, which has a new two-story atrium lobby, business center, luxury suites. Each of the contemporary-style guest rooms includes a spacious sitting area, plush bedding, and high-speed internet access. 

Among the amenities is a cocktail lounge in the lobby called The Duke Lounge, named for John Wayne. It offers premier bourbon, whiskey, and tequila, and serves up hand-crafted cocktails and superior wines. The Kingsley also features Zalman’s on Woodward, an upscale, trendy 50’s style diner designed for the modern day.

State-of-the-art facilities include a beautiful courtyard with fire pits and Bloomfield Hills’ only indoor saltwater pool and spa oasis. The hotel also features a picture-perfect environment with “creative and vibrant style celebrating today's ideas of stay, work, and play,” wrapped in an “Instagrammable atmosphere” that's energized by edgy original artworks by Yigal Ozeri and Peter Tunney.

Joe Muer's Seafood, which has been open on the property for almost six years, is a leased restaurant, and there is an entrance from the hotel.
