Hilton Hotels Named Best Hotel for Meetings and Business Service by Executive Travel Readers
Executive Travel wrote that many travel companies are “getting it right” when it comes to business travel. To help business travelers host smarter and more personal small meetings, Hilton introduced Hilton Meetings at its properties throughout North America last year following a successful international launch. Hilton Meetings revolutionized the small meetings segment of the hospitality industry by creating an environment specifically tailored for productive, hassle-free meetings for groups of 50 guests or less. The service provides individual meeting specialists and features technologically advanced room designs that help meeting planners minimize environmental impact.
In 2007, Hilton provided an industry first with the introduction of its enhanced e-Events online group booking portal that alleviates the time and energy spent organizing small business and social functions. Business travelers can reserve guest rooms, meeting spaces, food and beverage and audio/visual equipment at hundreds of hotels around the world within minutes and without a request for proposal or a waiting period through this small group booking solution.
Readers selected Hilton Hotels as the Best Hotel for Meetings and Best Hotel for Business Service. With more than 500 hotels in 76 countries and plans to serve 78 countries around the world by the end of 2009, the Hilton brand also finished second in the Best Hotel Chain category. Hilton HHonors, the only guest loyalty program to offer Points & Miles and No Blackout dates, was voted the third best frequent guest program. A full list of winners is available in the July/August issue of Executive Travel and online at .
