The Hilton Americas-Houston hotel has appeared on the list of top 100 hotels in the United States by Cvent, an industry-leading event management technology company, for the second time.

The list was ordered by analyzing group booking activity through the Cvent Supplier Network. Properties were ranked according to various criteria, including total requests for proposals (RFPs), awarded RFPs, total room nights, major metropolitan area (MMA) market share and response rate.

“I am really proud of our team,” says Jacques D’Rovencourt, hotel general manager. “It shows the staff’s pride, commitment and consistency in delivering great experiences for every guest and every event.”  

The downtown Houston hotel is hailed as a superb meetings and events space with 92,500 square feet of technologically advanced meeting space. Some features include digital reader boards in ballrooms and meeting rooms capable of displaying company logos and video presentations, and connectivity available from the hotel to the connected George R. Brown Convention Center for a seamless private network experience.  

The hotel also features rooftop lounges, a Starbucks, restaurants, lobby bars, and meeting spaces with long arched windows that look out to Green Discovery Park. It is located between the Toyota Center and Minute Maid Park. 

“Our spaces offer functionality for guests to be able to navigate through our meeting space with ease,” D’Rovencourt says. “The meeting space was designed based on the feedback we received directly from meeting planners.” 

There may be an array of events and activities that encompass the Texas experience, but for those in Austin, The InterContinental Stephen F. Austin Hotel’s True Texas Grilling Experience is the newest to join the ranks.  

The InterContinental Stephen F. Austin Hotel’s newest attraction known as The Texas Experience is an interactive culinary experience in which guests can experience the flavors and cooking techniques of Texas firsthand. 

 

Kimpton Hotel Van Zandt is now incorporating fun musical features into its meetings. Programs for groups include “Soundtracked,” which has a playlist customized by the music and social programming director for a group’s meeting space and “Anthem” where groups create a new company theme song with percussion instruments. 

 
In July, Chris Heeter, The Wild Institute and thousands of fans had to say goodbye to beloved speaker dog Tuu Weh.

With her fists closed tightly, Chris Heeter let her hands drop lightly to her sides, opening her palms widely and wildly. And with that small, simple motion, Heeter was unknowingly opening not just her hands, but her heart to a presence that would change her life as well as thousands of others.
