Hotel Recognized for Superior Guest Service
Hilton Americas-Houston received the 2016 Hilton Brand Award with the honor of Award of Excellence, joining only four other Hilton hotels around the world in their category to earn this distinction for outstanding accomplishments and superior guest service. For the sixth consecutive year, the hotel has been recognized as a top-performing hotel among all Hilton hotels and has demonstrated the highest level of quality and service throughout the brand.

“Another great performance by our team,” said Jacques D'Rovencourt, general manager, Hilton Americas-Houston. “Not only to be one of five Hilton hotels in our category to receive this award for 2016, but to have received this recognition for six consecutive years truly shows our team's dedication in delivering exceptional experiences to every guest, every time. The support we continually receive from Houston First Corporation and Hilton reinforces the commitment we all have to be one of the best hotels in the lodging industry."
“The recognition from the brand arrived on the heels of the renovation of our lobby and Lobby Bar, and the addition of our new R24 Executive Rooftop Lounge"

Directly connected to the George R. Brown Convention Center, Hilton Americas-Houston contains the city’s largest number of guest rooms, ballrooms, hotel meeting space, and the most technologically advanced services available under one roof. Conveniently situated between Toyota Center and Minute Maid Park, this AAA Four Diamond rated hotel boasts 1,200 elegantly appointed guestrooms, 91,500 square feet of flexible, technologically advanced meeting space, restaurants, lobby bars, Starbucks and full service spa and health club.
Hilton Americas-Houston Reveals Major Executive Lounge Transformation
Posted June 5, 2017
VIP Guests Enjoy Rooftop Lounge 300 Feet Above Street Level
Hilton Americas-Houston announced the completion and opening of R24 Rooftop Executive Lounge. Located on the 24th floor of the downtown Houston hotel and boasting expansive floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the city from almost 300 feet above street level, the exclusive lounge was created with discerning guests in mind, providing panoramic views of the city skyline. Extending 10 feet out from the building itself, this unique space includes modern design updates, new furnishings and elements chosen to significantly enhance the guest experience.

Focusing on contemporary design, the inviting space offers luxurious leather seating, granite table tops and refined décor catering to the hotel’s exclusive Hilton Honors guests. The new design elements combine style and functionality to create a welcoming space by day and relaxing lounge by evening. The new lounge’s look reflects the atmosphere and personality of Houston, appealing to seasoned business travelers and offers features specifically designed to suit the needs of the millennial traveler.

Seating options in R24 include a large community table and bar-height stools offering space for groups to gather, while giving individual travelers the feeling of connectivity if traveling solo. Multiple seating areas provide quiet corners to check emails and return calls while taking in the outstanding view of the downtown cityscape. Guests can also enjoy a comfortable sofa for reading or watching television. Three 65-inch televisions and one 75-inch television allow guests to keep up with news, sports and events while on the go. Computers, both PC and Apple, are available in the lounge for guests’ use.

Seating extends to the bar area with lush leather oversized bar stools offering a comfortable place to relax. The sustainable design of the bar front’s repurposed copper cladding gives way to its luxurious marble top, inviting guests to enjoy hand-crafted cocktails in the evenings while taking in the beauty of a Texas sunset from one of the best vantage points high above the city.

VIP guests will enjoy breakfast selections and evening hors d’oeuvres in the new buffet area, featuring fresh, seasonal fare using locally sourced ingredients. Beverages and fresh snacks are available throughout the day, with personal cocktail service allowing guests to purchase alcoholic beverages of their choice in the evenings.

R24 Rooftop Executive Lounge’s renovation was directed by Gensler, an award-winning global architectural design firm with offices in Houston. Gensler, the architect-of-record of the original design of Hilton Americas-Houston, is widely recognized as the world’s leading and largest collaborative design firm.

Hilton Americas-Houston Introduces New Upscale Casual Dining Restaurant
Posted November 2, 2014
Downtown Houston’s 1600 Bar + Grille Brings Local Texas Flair to Menus
HOUSTON, Texas – (NOVEMBER 2, 2014) – Hilton Americas-Houston today announced the opening of 1600 Bar + Grille, downtown Houston’s newest dining destination. Featuring local, seasonal produce plus Certified Angus Beef and seafood from the Gulf, this upscale casual dining restaurant brings farm-fresh ingredients to the tempting offerings on its all-new breakfast, lunch and dinner menus.

1600 Bar + Grille, located lobby-level just off the main rotunda of the Hilton Americas-Houston, offers a vibrant new atmosphere with menus that emphasize fresh, natural produce locally-sourced to guarantee a just-picked flavor. Sourcing products locally allows the restaurant’s experienced chefs to create dishes with a farm-to-fork freshness that isn’t possible at many restaurants. “Our food is prepared from scratch with emphasis on local ingredients with a Texas flair, to offer our guests an unparalleled freshness and variety of flavors,” said Ruffy Sulaiman, Hilton Americas-Houston executive chef.

“Through local sourcing, we can offer our guests the highest quality steaks and chops. Steaks are aged 21 days then cooked in our 1600° infrared broilers to ensure the natural beef juices are sealed under a thin charred crust,” stated Sulaiman. “We then serve the steaks and chops a la carte, with a trio of chimichurri, roasted garlic and herbed butter to perfectly bring out the flavor of the meats.”

Local sources for most products used at 1600 Bar + Grille include Dilorio Farms, Bluebonnet Farms, Atkinson Farms, Froberg’s Farms and Gundermann Farms.

Brown Convention Center, Hilton Americas-Houston contains the city's largest number of guest rooms, ballrooms, hotel meeting space, and the most technologically advanced services available under one roof.
