MCLEAN, Va. - Hilton Hotels & Resorts, the flagship brand of Hilton Worldwide with more than 550 hotels across six continents, today announced winners of Hilton Brand Awards for 2014. Through these awards, Hilton Hotels & Resorts properties worldwide are recognized for their high performance, with five properties receiving the highly coveted Connie Award, named in honor of the brand's founder Conrad Hilton.
"As a global industry leader, Hilton Hotels & Resorts Team Members are committed to quality experiences for our guests," said Rob Palleschi, global head, full service brands, Hilton Worldwide. "These awards present an opportunity to highlight our hotels and resorts that best exemplify outstanding service, and provide hospitality that ensures every guest feels cared for, valued and respected."
