As Hilton celebrates its 100 year anniversary, catch up on its exploits in Beirut and Chengdu

We round up for you a summary of news from the world of Hilton.

100 years of Hilton

Hilton Hotels is celebrating its 100 year anniversary this year. Turning a century old provides the hotel giant with an opportunity to reflect on its achievements, success and to project goals for the future.

Among its highlights, Hilton boasts a century of firsts – the first airport hotel, the first in-room television set and the first international brand in Turkey.

It is also lauding its achievements in community engagement, from the “Travel with Purpose” initiative that promotes sustainable tourism and travel to their commitment to supporting local suppliers.

As part of the celebrations, Hilton has also reaffirmed its commitment to its staff and team members, ensuring that happy workers make for happy hotels and happier guests.

Hilton Beirut Honors app opens doors

Hilton Beirut has become the group’s first property and the second property in the Middle East where members of the Hilton Honors loyalty program can use their mobile app to open their hotel room door.

This feature is part of the Honors app, which also allows members to book online, choose their room number and access a digital key which enables them to open their room door on arrival to the hotel.

With this feature, Hilton continues to innovate when it comes to the intersection of technology and hospitality, making the guest’s experience more streamlined and hassle free.
