Marking the 100th anniversary of Hilton on May 31, hundreds of Hilton hotels worldwide conducted “Random Acts of Hospitality” in order to give back to their communities and represent the strength of Hilton hospitality. The Hilton Garden Inn Portland Downtown Waterfront joined the Hilton movement as it set out to clean up the area’s Eastern Promenade and East End Beach. The hotel teamed with other Hilton-branded properties in Portland, as well as the City of Portland Parks and Recreation to make the cleanup program a success.

“Creating community is an important Hilton value that has been at the center of Conrad Hilton’s founding vision for the last century,” says Kim Strondak, director of sales at the Hilton Garden Inn Portland Downtown Waterfront. “Hilton’s mission is to spread the light and warmth of hospitality throughout the world. That mission begins when we answer the phone to make a reservation and extends to our local backyard relationships and important causes here in Maine.”

Around 60 team members from the nine Hilton hotels in Greater Portland made a splash at the waterfront as they spent the afternoon cleaning up the beach, trail and water’s edge.

After several months of renovations, the DoubleTree by Hilton Philadelphia-Valley Forge is now open as the Alloy – King of Prussia, a DoubleTree by Hilton.

 

After almost 20 years of vacancy, the Cook County Hospital in Chicago will be put to use once again. A $150 million adaptive reuse project restored the historic, 106-year-old hospital, which has become a combined Hyatt Place and Hyatt House hotel, as well as medical offices, a museum, a food hall and more. While the opening is multi-phased, the hotels are scheduled to open in late July.  

 

Doctors, nurses, grocery store employees and more were essential to sustaining the continued stay-at-home orders that helped fight the spread of COVID-19. Such workers put their health at risk for the benefit of society, and Nakoma Resort and the Lost Sierra Chamber of Commerce want to recognize them for their efforts through the “Send Your Heroes” campaign.
