Leg­endary Hil­ton New York Turns 50, Gets a New Name

Business Traveler (USA) - - IN-FLIGHT ENTERTAINMENT -

When Hil­ton Ho­tels founder Con­rad Hil­ton opened the Hil­ton NewYork in June 1963 on Sixth Av­enue, he named it the NewYork Hil­ton at Rock­e­feller Cen­ter. He en­vi­sioned a ho­tel in the heart of Mid­town Man­hat­tan where trav­el­ers, whether for busi­ness or leisure, would be lit­er­ally a stone’s throw from all the best that NewYork has to of­fer.

“As the ho­tel cel­e­brates its 50th an­niver­sary on June 26, we have de­cided to re­turn to re­name it NewYork Hil­tonMid­town,”said Mark Lauer, ho­tel gen­eral man­ager.“The ref­er­ence to mid­town in the new name pro­vides the ho­tel with a lo­ca­tor for guests and helps to iden­tify the neigh­bor­hood the ho­tel is sit­u­ated, which is ex­tremely im­por­tant to both busi­ness and leisure trav­el­ers vis­it­ing NewYork City.”

Lo­cated be­tween West 53rd and 54thStreets in the cen­ter of Mid­town, the 1,981-room NewYork Hil­ton-Mid­town has al­ways been pop­u­lar with in­ter­na­tional and do­mes­tic trav­el­ers. The ho­tel, which is a short walk from Times Square, Broad­way the­aters and Fifth Av­enue shop­ping, can ac­com­mo­date large con­fer­ences and con­ven­tions, smaller meet­ings and el­e­gant ban­quets.
