DALLAS -  Dallas' legendary Hilton Anatole has been named the official National Football League's hotel for Super Bowl XLV.  As NFL headquarters, all of the NFL staff will stay at the hotel including the commissioner, officials, select media and corporate sponsors.  Additionally, Hilton Anatole will host pre-game and post-game parties. 

The National Football League and Super Bowl XLV named 15 other venues located in Arlington, Dallas, and Fort Worth as future host sites of Super Bowl XLV related events.  Hilton Anatole was chosen for the size of its property, first class reputation, and quality of service and product. 

As a business and leisure hotel, Hilton Anatole provides an ideal environment for the NFL meetings, events and gatherings. A shimmering gem on the Texas hospitality crown, legendary Hilton Anatole has enchanted guests with its historic grandeur, elegance, and southern charm for almost 30 years. Having recently completed a stunning $57 million renovation, reviving its public areas, meeting space and transforming its 714 Tower guestrooms, Hilton Anatole concluded a multi-year renovation project representing a total investment in excess of $100 million - the most extensive hotel renovation in Dallas and one of the largest in Texas - reinforcing its commitment to remaining the region's premier meeting, event and business travel destination.   

"Today's NFL announcement is an incredible honor.  The recent renovations within the hotel have allowed us to remain a strong competitor in today's growing marketplace where excellence, quality, top of the line amenities and customer service are all top of mind," said Marc L. Messina, general manager for Hilton Anatole. "The transformed Anatole will meet and satisfy all the needs of the NFL staff, while retaining the elegance and charm of this 30 year old Dallas hospitality landmark."
