Hilton Redefining D.C. Meetings

Monday, 25 January 2010 11:50

Kristin Adderson, Marketing Manager for the Hilton Washington and Capital Hilton, two flagship Hilton properties in Washington D.C., came up to New York to meet with FacBlog and talk about the exciting hotel renovations affecting meetings in our nation’s capital.  The first renovation to come on line will be at the 1,070-room Hilton Washington, which is finishing a massive, $140-million renovation that improved existing meeting space, and created new meeting space, such as the new multi-purpose, Terrace-Level, 30,000-square-foot ballroom, Columbia Hall, whose perimeter is aligned with seven Terrace Meeting Suites that serve as quasi feeder rooms to the Columbia space. On the Lobby Level is the new Heights Executive Meeting Center, featuring nine, state-of-the-art, Executive Meeting Rooms. The meeting-centric makeover for the hotel will have a full unveiling in conjunction with the ASAE & the Center’s Springtime Expo in May, when the Hilton Washington will host the 2010 PCMA Foundation Annual Dinner. “The D.C. meetings market is not suffering from the downturn to the same extent as other regions,” said Adderson. “We redesigned so we could increase our flexibility accommodate more types of meetings and events. The difference is we listened to meeting planners. We invited their feedback and worked with them at the planning stage so we can have space that meets their needs.”
