In 2013, we celebrated 50 Years of Excellence and Legendary Service at New York Hilton Midtown.
On June 26, 1963, New York Hilton Midtown opened its doors as ‘The New York Hilton at Rockefeller Center.’ This spectacular Art Deco hotel epitomized Conrad N. Hilton’s vision of what a hotel should be – a city in which anything could be found.
Immediately gathering interest, this awe-inspiring hotel gathered accolades which continue to this day.
Over 50 years, the New York Hilton Midtown hotel’s renowned hospitality and generous proportions have attracted millions of visitors and thousands of notables through its doors, including The Beatles, Princess Diana and every President since John F. Kennedy. In 1973, Dr. Martin Cooper made the world’s first public cellular phone call from a sidewalk just outside the hotel.
If New York is ‘The City that Never Sleeps,’ New York Hilton Midtown could appropriately be named the ‘Hotel that Never Rests.’ Constantly evolving and developing, the hotel has undergone numerous renovations in its 50-year history. It continues to inspire and engage guests, providing a classic New York experience.
In 2013, New York Hilton Midtown commemorated the Hilton Brand’s dedication to world hospitality.
