Hilton today introduces “This Week in Hilton History,” a new weekly mini-series exploring significant moments in time from the company’s first 100 years.
Over the last century, Hilton has been a pioneer in hospitality, entering new travel markets and bringing to life innovations that shape the way that we travel - including in more recent history, with the introduction of features like Connected Room and Digital Key, and new brands that continue to address the evolving needs of travelers.
A rich array of travel history traces back to Hilton. The world’s first global hospitality company catalyzed new destinations, is the birthplace of delicious creations like the brownie and the piña colada, and over the decades has ushered in numerous travel industry firsts, like in-room TV and room service.
As Hilton celebrates a milestone 100th anniversary in 2019, we are diving into the archives. Explore the series for significant moments from all across 100 years of Hilton history.
