We know.  Our mothers have always said that it isn’t nice to brag.  So, it is with much… um… hesitation.. that we share the following news.  (And, for a Hilton team, it is AMAZING news, indeed…)

Orlando Hotel Wins Hilton's Top Award

On the final day of Award Week for Hilton Hotels & Resorts, it was just announced that Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek (as well as our older sibling Hilton Orlando) was awarded the highest honor for the corporation, the Connie Award, named after brand founder Conrad Hilton.  This elusive honor, in the large hotel category for the Americas,  is awarded to the hotel with highest overall combined ranking for loyalty, service, condition, and cleanliness based on guest feedback and Quality Assurance scores.

Congratulations to the entire team for winning the Connie Award, including Peter Kacheris, managing director; and Tracy Walker, general manager. 

And what a week it’s been!  Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek received the top honors (in the large hotel category) in the categories of Housekeeping (we’ve got the cleanest rooms in the Americas!), Food & Beverage (our restaurants have been singled out as the most innovative!), and cultural and community activities (we’ve got Hilton Blue Energy!).  The Connie Award simply takes the cake… and (in our eyes) makes it a clean sweep!

And, yes, we apologize for bragging.  But when a team works this hard, it warms the heart to see such recognition.  And you want to share it with anybody who will listen!  Please help us to celebrate our success.  It has been our pleasure to provide a memorable guest experience for the past year.

This week, Hilton Hotels & Resorts has released its property awards — one per day.  It’s been a great week for Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek so far, receiving top honors for large hotels in the categories of Housekeeping and Food & Beverage excellence.  And the streak continued today… with the announcement of the inaugural Annual BLUE ENERGY Award.

This award, named after the Brand’s “BLUE ENERGY” global culture initiative, is given to a property based on its guest relations accomplishments and activities, Team Member relations accomplishments and activities, community relations accomplishments and activities, sustainability accomplishments and activities, and internal Hilton Brand Community website activity.

What is BLUE ENERGY?  It is our passion at Hilton Hotels & Resorts to live our Values, deliver our Promise and celebrate our stories. It’s an expression of the unique spirit we show to our guests, our communities, and each other as Hilton Team Members.  BLUE ENERGY fuels our culture, and enables us to deliver service with positive spirit, strength and passion.
