MCLEAN, Va. and MEADOWLANDS, N.J. - Northern New Jersey's newest Hilton Hotels & Resorts property, the 427-guest room Hilton Meadowlands, is now open at Two Meadowlands Plaza in East Rutherford. The property, which recently completed the first phase of a multi-million dollar renovation, will convert from the Sheraton flag.


Offering stunning views of the New York skyline, Hilton Meadowlands is situated across the street from the Meadowlands Complex, New Jersey's sports and entertainment hub; minutes from MetLife Stadium, host to the 2014 Super Bowl; four miles from New York City and 15 minutes from Newark Liberty International Airport.

"We are thrilled to welcome Hilton Meadowlands to our portfolio, expanding our presence in New Jersey to nine Hilton Hotels & Resorts properties," said Rob Palleschi, global head, Hilton Hotels & Resorts. "This hotel offers an ideal location just outside Manhattan and nearby attractions along with the updated amenities and services our guests want and have come to expect from our brand."

"Feedback from our guests about the Hilton brand and its highly popular Hilton HHonorsTM guest loyalty program made the decision to become a Hilton an easy one," said Joseph Bojanowski, president of PM Hospitality Strategies (PMHS), operators of the property. "The hotel is in outstanding physical condition, having completed a stunning make-over, upgrading nearly one-half of the guest rooms, the lobby and hallways. The remaining rooms and meeting space are scheduled to begin renovation later next year."

Major Meeting and Social Event Setting for Northern New Jersey
With 30,000 square feet of meeting and event space, Hilton Meadowlands will be one of Northern New Jersey's most sought after gathering places. The hotel can accommodate up to 1,000 guests attending meetings or social events in its 11,500 square foot Diamond Court Ballroom, Northern New Jersey's largest ballroom and up to 500 people in the 5,200 square foot Derby Ballroom. Smaller groups can access up to 15 meeting rooms supported by an executive meeting specialist, convention services staff and audio visual production services and equipment. The meeting facilities also features a 4,100 square foot International Association of Conference Centers (IACC) certified conference center.

"The layout of our meeting space makes for a comfortable, intimate setting with incredible views," Bojanowski said. "The hotel will be one of the region's largest social event hosts, ranging from weddings to class reunions to bar and bat mitzvahs and other family events."

The hotel features the 130-seat Chairman's Grill, offering American cuisine; The Lounge, featuring light fare; and a Starbucks Café. The amenity-rich property also offers an indoor swimming pool, sauna and whirlpool, fitness room and business center.

Environmentally Focused
Hilton Meadowlands takes the environment seriously. The hotel's recently completed solar carport has a capacity to produce 1.1 megawatts of clean energy annually, providing approximately 20 percent of the property's energy.

Other programs include composting of organic waste, meeting space recycling, food donations, elimination of Styrofoam and energy-efficient digital signing. The hotel participates in Clean the World, a non-profit, global health program that hygienically recycles and donates more than 3.2 million bars of soaps and 1.7 million bottles of shampoos, conditioners and lotions to children around the world.
