Hilton Showcase

The Hilton event was at Kensington Hilton. This is very convenient for Westfield White City, BBC London and Notting Hill. It has undergone a facelift in recent years and even since last year the public areas have been further refurbished

The food was decent and well presented with canapés and a variety of bowl food

Hilton designed a new format for the evening which was a really good idea but unfortunately didnt work terribly well because it lacked structure. We had to get a letter and a number from each stand to form a Hilton related phrase. The problem was that you could only really talk to the ones that were free and some of them weren’t even there. I did manage to fill the gaps quite quickly to solve the phrase and I managed to see a few of the hoteliers but not as many as I would have liked

There was a game show element to the evening called say what you see. A collection of images on screen represented a Hilton hotel and there were some very generous prizes to be had including the prize I won last year to Hilton Seychelles

The most exciting new Hilton property showcased was the new Koh Samui Hilton with all suite pool villas tucked away in the south west corner of the island away from the busier Chaweng beach

I also managed to see Hilton Barbados which remains one of only a handful of chain properties on the island. This is ideally located close to the airport and Bridgetown for shopping

Hilton has a hotel in the popular resort of Flic en Flac on Mauritius. It is suitable for families as well as honeymooners

In Europe I managed to see Athens which boasts a convenient location and wonderful views of the Acropolis as well as a spa and indoor pool

I learnt about Hilton Arc de Triomphe a perfect location in the heart of Paris near Arc de Triomphe and Champs Élysées

Hilton has 18 hotels in Scotland including 3 in Edinburgh and 2 in Glasgow

Prague has two Hilton hotels, Prague Old Town best for leisure visitors and the larger Hilton Prague, which caters better for business travellers

One of my colleagues won 3 nights in the fabulous Corinthian Palace Malta
