The Historic Hotels of America recently announced the 2014 Awards of Excellence winners at the Hotel Hershey. Proving victorious, Palmer House Hilton was awarded the titles of Best Historic Hotel and Hotel Historian of the Year; the latter recognized PR director, Ken Price, a 30+ year veteran of the hotel, for his unique History is Hott tour.
 
A Best Practice Award was also granted to the hotel for Innovative Historic Hotel Event Host, which was presented to the hotel with the most “Creativity to ‘Bring Back’ Hotel’s Memorable Experiences.” The winners were chosen from a pool of more than 160 nominees.
 
“Palmer House Hilton’s wins for the Best Historic Hotel (over 400 guestrooms) and Ken Price as Hotel Historian of the Year by Historic Hotels of America validates what guests from around the world have known since 1873," explains Dean Lane​, general manager. "As the stage for countless historic happenings from the 19th century to now, Palmer House Hilton is more than just a place where a traveler rests their head or dines at our table.  It is where so many of America’s, and the world’s, greatest events have occurred – and continues to be at the forefront of cutting edge innovation as it witnesses history happening today.  I am delighted the prestigious organization of the Historic Hotels of America has recognized it.” 
 
Each year, The Historic Hotels of America Awards recognizes industry-leaders in their category, and highlight the best practices that make these historic hotels and hoteliers stand out.

The Hilton Dallas Lincoln Centre completed its $24 million renovation of the entire hotel and conference center. Renovations began in 2020. 

The North Dallas conference center hotel renovation includes a full redesign of all 503 guest rooms, lobby and public areas, and food and beverage outlets. Additionally, the hotel’s 55,000-square-feet of meeting space was updated with new furnishings, technology upgrades, and the addition of a new 6,600-square-foot Lakeside Ballroom. 

 

Anchorage is a city like none other—making it a popular choice for hosting meetings and events.

Through the tall windows of the Dena’ina Civic and Convention Center in Anchorage, meeting attendees can gaze out toward Cook Inlet, which stretches all the way to the Gulf of Alaska and toward mountains—some snow-capped—representing several ranges. They may even see an eagle fly by or see one of the 1,500 moose that are said to roam Alaska’s largest city. It’s easy to see why it’s said that Anchorage is a city like none other in the United States.
