Hilton Marks 100th Anniversary with Acts of Kindness

Hilton, the world’s first global hotel company, celebrated its milestone 100th anniversary on Friday, 31 May in the midst of the most dynamic year in the company’s storied history.

To mark the occasion, hundreds of Hilton hotels around the world are extending Hilton hospitality beyond their doors by taking “Random Acts of Hospitality” to their communities – from Chicago to Shanghai, Dublin to Dubai and everywhere in between.

Hilton also announced the creation of The Hilton Effect Foundation, which will help create a better world to travel by investing in both organizations and people having a positive impact on the communities Hilton serves.

The Foundation launched last week with 15 grants to organizations that will support communities around the world. The grants will support programs creating opportunities for youth, aiding in disaster recovery, and supporting water stewardship and sustainability.

Founded in 1919 in Texas, Hilton has pioneered the travel industry for decades, introducing room service, air-conditioned lobbies, in-room TVs, airport hotels, the mini-bar, and computerized reservation system.

Other innovations pioneered by Hilton include Connected Room – the first hotel room allowing guests to unlock their doors and control their lights, thermostat and TV with a smartphone app.

Hilton now offers 17 distinctive brands in 113 countries and territories, with more than 5,700 properties and continues to grow with a new hotel opening somewhere in the world every day.

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.
