MSN recently announced the Best Hotels in Every State, and selected Hilton Americas-Houston as number one. The ratings are based off of expert reviews, local recommendations and their own list of the Best Hotels in America. Hilton Americas-Houston was recognized for superior guest service and its commitment to guest satisfaction.

Hilton Americas-Houston also received the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence, which is given to hotels that earn high reviews from travelers on a regular basis. The hotel ranks number seven out of 499 hotels in Houston, holds the number one spots as TripAdvisor’s Top Green and Top Family Hotel in Houston and the number two spot as the Top Spa Hotel in Houston. Hilton Americas-Houston is in the top seven of the Houston lists for Top Business Hotel, Top Luxury Hotel and Top Romantic Hotel.

Hilton Hotels strive to keep their guests satisfied by providing quality customer service, listening to customer reviews and fulfilling customer needs. This can be seen through Hilton hotels’ consistent high ranking in guest loyalty. Not only do Hilton Hotels put customers first, they also recognize the importance of satisfying and empowering their employees. With an experienced team of hospitality professionals, Hilton Hotel was named as one of Houston Chronicle’s 2016 Top Workplaces and received an award for Fortune Magazine’s 100 Best Companies to Work For in 2016.

Among its amenities and features, the AAA Four Diamond hotel has 1,200 guest rooms, 91,500 square feet of meeting space, restaurants, lobby bars, Starbucks, and full-service spa and health club. The hotel sits between Toyota Center and Minute Maid Park, directly connected to the George R. Brown Convention Center. With the city’s largest number of guest rooms, ballrooms, hotel meeting space, and the most technologically-advanced services available under one roof, the Hilton Americas-Houston is a go-to location.

While many people have welcomed the new normal of working from home, others miss the separation of spaces, as many corporate offices have remained closed since March. Without the daily obligation to go into the office, professionals have the ability to travel more freely. Hotels across the country are creating “work from hotel” deals–a play on “work from home”–so people can explore new places while still fitting in their 9 to 5.  

 

Choosing a career in the event industry is not for the faint of heart. Let’s face it: Event planning is stressful. The last-minute changes, demands from clients and surmounting urgency of a quickly approaching event can make it difficult to maintain a healthy work-life balance.
