100 Years of Hospitality

18 October 2019

As the World’s First Global Hospitality Company, Hilton celebrated an extraordinary milestone of #100YearsofHospitality on the 31st May 2019. Hilton, which continues to be a leading brand in the Hospitality Industry, chose to mark this Anniversary with ‘Random of Acts of Kindness in Hospitality’ for their team members and wider community.

Our colleagues in Tanzania, at the DoubleTree by Hilton Dar es Salaam, DoubleTree Resort by Hilton Nungwi Zanzibar and the DoubleTree by Hilton Stone Town all took part and celebrated team successes, including acknowledging long serving team members of up to 20 years at their properties! The Random Acts of Kindness performed, showcased the #HiltonEffect that had swept across the properties with cake cutting ceremonies in attendance by guests and the local community.

Also in line with the Hilton campaign #TravelWithPurpose, which focuses on a commitment to being a local business, whilst sharing a passion to role model and create a positive impact in the local community, DoubleTree by Hilton Dar es Salaam invited children from Mama Maungo Orphanage for Iftar, an evening meal that marks the end of the Ramadan fast.

DoubleTree by Hilton Stone Town also celebrated with their in-house guests, serving turndown amenities such as hand decorated, delicious treats in their rooms and distributing Eid hampers to the team members.

It was such an honour for our teams to mark this occasion with guests and the local community, as one big Hilton Family. A big thank you to everyone who participated including our partners and sponsors in marking this special event with us.
