MIAMI - A group of six Hilton Hotels & Resorts properties in South Florida is launching an offer that promises to lure group business that might otherwise have been taken to another state. Crafted to provide highly coveted perks to meeting planners and make a positive economic impact in the hotels’ surrounding communities, the South Florida Hiltons Sizzling Summer Offer targets groups in Florida. The offer is bold: instead of one Hilton HHonors point per dollar spent, the hotels will award Triple HHonors Points & MilesÒ for each dollar spent on a qualifying meeting or event.

In addition, meeting planners may choose between two and four of the following complimentary amenities based upon the number of guestrooms booked:

To qualify, groups must book $5,000 or more in new meeting or event business between June 1 and August 30, 2011. The function may occur anytime before December 30, 2011. Booking is conducted at http://www.southfloridahiltons.com/specials.php, where each hotel will have a click through booking link. The site also contains additional pages of photos and information on each hotel, including a map that shows their locations in South Florida and key surrounding attractions.

Participating hotels are: Hilton Longboat Key Beach Resort; Hilton Marco Island Beach Resort & Spa; Hilton Miami Downtown; Hilton Deerfield Beach – Boca Raton; Hilton Suites Boca Raton and Hilton Palm Beach Airport. Collectively, they represent 1590 guestrooms and 94,550 square feet of meeting space designed to accommodate groups from ten to 2,000.

While each property offers top quality meeting facilities, recreational opportunities and accommodations, depending upon location, each has its own unique style and “flavor”. Looking for barefoot casual elegance? Select Hilton Longboat Key or Hilton Marco Island Beach Resorts. Urban sophistication? Choose Hilton Miami Downtown. Business by day, beaches at sunset? Hilton Deerfield Beach/ Boca Raton, Hilton Suites Boca Raton or Hilton Palm Beach Airport perfectly fit the bill.

Linda Haserot, VP Sales & Marketing of Ocean Properties whose company has two hotels in the group, said the program achieves much more than building the hotels’ bottom line.

 “Our South Florida Hiltons group is composed of six excellently appointed hotels and resorts in a wide variety of settings. Although vastly different from each other, all have common features that make them especially appealing to groups seeking the perfect destination for their meeting or event: an easy-to-reach location, state of the art function facilities, full-service catering capabilities and superb nearby attractions,” said Linda Haserot, V.P. Sales & Marketing of Ocean Properties, which owns and manages two of the six participating hotels.

“ This offer is a win for meeting planners because of the excellent incentives and the savings on travel by keeping their event in their state. It is a win for our communities, counties and state because of increased revenue and additional tax dollars. Finally, it is a win for our hotels by generating additional group business as well as giving us the opportunity to highlight our abilities to meet the needs of any size or type group. You cannot get a better deal than WIN-WIN-WIN, “Haserot said.

The Hilton HHonorsÒ program is the only guest reward program that allows members to earn both points and miles for the same stay. HHonors members may redeem their Points and Miles for valuable prizes or use them toward accommodations at any of 3,600 hotels and 50 airlines worldwide. Membership is free at http://hhonors1.hilton.com/en_US/hh/about/index.do
