Attendees Participated in Clean the World’s Largest Hygiene Kit Building Event To-Date
NEW ORLEANS and MCLEAN, Va. - The three award-winning brands that are part of the All Suites portfolio by Hilton (NYSE: HLT) - Embassy Suites by Hilton, Homewood Suites by Hilton and Home2 Suites by Hilton - recognized top hotels and team members as best-in-class performers during the recent All Suites hotel leadership conference held in New Orleans. This marked a significant milestone for the All Suites brands by Hilton, as it was their first joint conference since the creation of the category in 2015.
Additionally, as the first in the hotel industry to implement a soap-recycling brand standard through its Clean the World partnership, the All Suites brands hosted the largest kit-building event during the conference. More than 50,000 kits, consisting of recycled soaps and amenities, were packed and will be distributed to local non-profit charities including Travelers Aid Society of Greater New Orleans, Salvation Army, New Orleans Women's Shelter, New Orleans Mission and Second Harvest Food Bank.
Over 2,200 attendees participated in the All Suites hotel leadership conference. Embassy Suites by Hilton Springfield, Homewood Suites by Hilton North Houston/Spring, and Home2 Suites by Hilton Milwaukee Airport were awarded the prestigious Connie Award as the top performing hotels for their respective brand. The Connie Award, named after Hilton founder Conrad Hilton, is awarded based on three key components: quality assurance audits measuring cleanliness, condition and brand standards; customer satisfaction scores rating staff service; and the quality of the hotel's physical accommodations. Each winning hotel will receive a monetary award and a recognition trophy to display on property.
General Manager of the Year and Director of Sales of the Year awards were also presented. Nominated by their colleagues, these individuals were recognized for their exceptional leadership and passionate dedication to achieving the highest level of operational excellence. The winners are:
