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.” 

On September 1, over 1,500 businesses across the country illuminated their buildings with red lights to draw attention to the devastation that the live events and performance art industries have faced as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

According to a survey commissioned by the American Hotel & Lodging Association (AHLA), frequent travelers feel safer when hotels adhere to AHLA's Stay Safe guidelines, which detail cleaning protocols for hotels during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

 

Through responses to bi-weekly surveys, Global Business Travel Association members have indicated that domestic busines travel is ramping up after months of struggle.
