Located on Youngstown’s Central Square, the former Stambaugh Building is now owned by Youngstown Stambaugh Hotel, LLC. The Project Designer was ms consultants, with Annissa Neider serving as Project Manager. Krystal Paisley nominated this project.
This former office and retail building was designed by Albert Kahn and built in 1907. It became the headquarters for the Youngstown Sheet and Tube Company. Four additional floors were added in 1914 and extensive renovations were done in the 1980s. However, by 2012 the building was mostly vacant and had begun to deteriorate. It was then purchased with hopes of making it a downtown destination once again.
Due to its unique character, bay sizes and structure were never uniform. Based on Hilton’s Design and Construction standards, 47 different room types, from suites to king rooms, were developed. The renovation was also designed to host multiple businesses. The hotel is complemented by Bistro 1907, a restaurant that has gained instant popularity.
The building has beautiful details, such as marble-lined corridors, terrazzo flooring, heavy white oak trim from floor to ceiling and a white terra cotta façade.
Design started in 2015 with construction beginning in August 2016. The DoubleTree by Hilton Downtown Youngstown officially opened in May 2018.
