Hotel Engine Partner Spotlight: Hilton Hotels
The name Hilton has long been synonymous with comfort and luxury for travelers of all types. The leading global hospitality company is comprised of 18 brands, each offering unique accommodations, amenities and experiences for guests. With more than 7,000 properties in 122 countries and territories, Hilton’s global portfolio of brands appeal to a wide range of travelers and travel preferences to meet every budget.
For more than 100 years, Hilton continues to be one of the most-recognized names in the hospitality industry and has remained unfailingly committed to constant improvement and innovation. Hilton properties are always exploring new ways to better serve a wider range of customers and their ever-evolving travel needs.
Latest and Greatest Hilton Hotel Amenities
Hilton’s goal is to provide the utmost flexibility, comfort and convenience for travelers so that they can relax and enjoy their destination — whether they’re traveling for business or leisure, with family or friends. To this end, Hilton properties are regularly introducing new features and enhancements to the travel experience.
Since 2015, visitors to Hilton properties have enjoyed using the Digital Key feature of the Hilton Honors app for a quick and convenient check-in and check-out experience. This technology is currently available at more than 80% of Hilton properties worldwide. Most recently, the Hilton Honors app has expanded its technology capabilities to include Digital Key Share, allowing more than one guest to have access to their room’s Digital Key. Additionally, Hilton Honors members can use the app to check-in from anywhere, choose their room in advance, and skip the front desk.
Hilton aims to provide options to enhance comfort for every guest during their stay, regardless of their unique preferences. For some, that means the ability to bring their pets along — which Hilton accommodates not only by offering 5,000+ pet-friendly properties, but also by providing complimentary 24/7 access to pet-care experts to help pets adjust to their new environment, thanks to Hilton’s partnership with Mars Petcare. For others, that means a holistic wellness experience supported by amenities like in-room workout equipment, upscale mocktail menus, increased natural lighting and modern spa experiences inspired by local traditions.
By offering a large selection of unique amenities, Hilton can offer a customized guest experience that caters to each individual’s needs. As the company continues to implement technology enhancements,, guests can look forward to a greater level of control over every aspect of their room experience, as the company is rolling out Connected Rooms. This amenity allows guests to adjust room temperature, lighting, TV and more from their mobile device.
Hilton’s Commitment to Sustainability
Hilton recognizes that the future of the travel and hospitality space is rooted in sustainability, and the hospitality leader is committed to doing their part. Through their Travel with Purpose strategic initiative, Hilton seeks to create positive environmental and social impact across their operations, supply chain and communities.
From phasing out single-use items to eliminating waste streams and establishing science-based targets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, Hilton is paving the way for more environmentally responsible travel and tourism. By 2030, Hilton’s environmental goals include reducing the amount of waste by 50%, cutting water usage by 50%, and reducing carbon emissions across its global portfolio as they drive toward a net-zero future. One example of how Hilton properties are supporting guests looking to make a greener impact while traveling is by increasingly offering electric vehicle chargers (currently available at 1,500 global Hilton properties).
Rewarding Loyalty with Hilton Honors
Hilton’s award-winning loyalty program, Hilton Honors, is free to join and offers an attractive array of benefits that start the moment guests sign up.
