CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

Hilton has named Matthew Felling as the complex general manager for the DoubleTree by Hilton hotel at the U.S. Cellular Center in Cedar Rapids.

Felling, who has held various positions with Hilton over the past 30 years, will run the 267-room, city owned hotel that is currently undergoing a $130 million renovation.  Felling was most recently the general manager of the Embassy Suites St. Louis-Downtown.

The hotel renovation includes updating all guest rooms and adding 11,500 square feet of meeting space, a new restaurant on the 16th floor, an indoor swimming pool and new work-out facilities.

The project also includes renovating the U.S. Cellular Center Arena and constructing a new convention center. 

All three projects are scheduled to be completed by June of 2013.
