Hilton Hotels Provides Booking Portal for U.S. Government
and Military Employees - hiltongov.com

.

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. - In an effort to provide an easy and uniquely tailored online experience for U.S. government and military employees, the Hilton Family of Hotels has launched hiltongov.com, an enhanced government information and booking portal offering government rates at participating U.S. hotels as well as helpful information. 

The enhanced site offers easy access to the more than 2,600 U.S. hotels within the Hilton Family of Hotels, including Hilton, Conrad Hotels & Resorts, Doubletree, Embassy Suites Hotels, Hampton Inn, Hampton Inn & Suites, Hilton Garden Inn, Hilton Grand Vacations, Homewood Suites by Hilton and The Waldorf=Astoria Collection. 

A dedicated resource, hiltongov.com provides robust hotel search and booking tools, rich hotel content, ability to book reward stays, and convenient access to services and government resources, including a Defense Link, GSA Travel Resources, Defense Travel Management, U.S. Per Diem Rates, Foreign Per Diem Rates and State Tax Exemptions. 

“We strive to enhance our relationship with government and military professionals through touch points that are most efficient and meaningful for them,” said Scott Normali, senior vice president - strategic third party distribution, Hilton Hotels Corporation. “The Hilton Family of Hotels has created a one-stop, dedicated portal in which government or military employees planning a U.S. trip can find information they need easily.” 

The new URL and enhanced portal enable government and military employees to: 

  • Search by military base and government landmarks, address, route, city, airport or local attraction and find the closest accommodations; 
  • Access extensive hotel information, including enhanced hotel and room descriptions, photos and virtual tours, services and amenities, special offers, destination information, maps and directions; 
  • Compare up to four hotels side by side and make a reservation receiving a government rate1; 
  • Access up-to-the minute availability of hotel guest rooms and function space; 
  • Search for, view and modify an existing reservation; 
  • Earn Points & Miles® for each stay as a member of the Hilton HHonors® program (membership is free); 
  • Benefit from No Blackout Dates for HHonors members. As long as a standard room is available, members can confirm that room using their HHonors points2. 
Government and Military employees simply show their official employee identification and/or their travel orders when they check-in. 
“Our goal with this value- and service-oriented government portal is to make it even more convenient for government and military employees to find the right hotel accommodations and the most ideal services and packages corresponding to military bases and other key government institutions, while enabling them to fully benefit from their loyalty through our Hilton HHonors customer loyalty program in the process,” said Scott Lamb, director – government segment, Hilton Hotels Corporation.
