Hilton Allows Guests to Select Their Exact Hotel Room

August 19, 2014 on 10:26 am | In Gaming Resorts, Golf Resorts, Hotels | Comments Off

Sure, you’ve selected your seat from an airplane map by now.

But now you can choose which hotel room you want via a digital floor plan, courtesy of Hilton Worldwide.

In July, Hilton became the first hospitality company to offer room selection and customization via mobile and Internet-based floor plans. Part of a company-wide initiative to focus on the digital and technology space, the offering was conceived based on feedback from travelers.

“Number one, what we’re trying to do is give guests the ultimate in choice and control, really make sure it’s their vacation and that it’s custom to them,” said Dustin Bomar, Senior Director, Global Online Services at Hilton. “The second thing is, we were asking our consumers what they wanted to see, what they would use, what they would find valuable. And 84 percent of guests (in a global survey by Hilton) said if they had the option of choosing their room, they would do it. So, because the guests asked for it, that’s what we’ll provide.”

Guests can currently select their exact room online or via the Apple and Android HHonors apps across five Hilton U.S. brands: Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts, Conrad Hotels & Resorts, Hilton Hotels & Resorts, Hilton Garden Inn, Homewood Suites and Home2 Suites. That covers nearly 1,000 Hilton hotels. The functionality will also be available at DoubleTree by Hilton and Embassy Suites Hotels properties within the U.S. this fall.

That’s in addition to digital check-in, digital checkout and the ability to order food, beverage and other items that will be waiting for you when you step into your hotel room.

By the end of 2014, digital check-in and room selection will be available at more than 4,000 Hilton Worldwide properties across 11 brands in 80-plus countries via members’ Hilton HHonors accounts.

“Desert Showdown” on Saturday, Aug. 30 at The Pearl at Palms Casino Resort‏

August 18, 2014 on 11:42 am | In Gaming Resorts, Las Vegas, Sports Travel | Comments Off

J’Leon Love To Headline Against Rogelio Medina
Badou Jack Fights Jason Escalera In Other Hard-Hitting Action

LAS VEGAS – Mayweather Promotions closes out the summer in a big way on Saturday, Aug. 30 as they present the star-studded “Desert Showdown” featuring undefeated super middleweight contender J’Leon Love taking on the dangerous Rogelio Medina from The Pearl at Palms Resort Casino in Las Vegas.

In other action, hard-hitting Badou Jack will face Jason Escalera in the evening’s co-main event. The event also features Mayweather Promotions stars Chris Pearson who takes on Steve Martinez and Ronald Gavril who faces Thomas Falowo.

Fights from this night of boxing, sponsored by Corona, will come to you live as part of ShoBox: The New Generation telecast live on SHOWTIME which will begin at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT.

Tickets priced at $25, $50, $75 and $100, plus applicable taxes, fees and service are on sale now and available for purchase by clicking HERE.

“It’s great to be putting on another great card with Mayweather Promotions stars from top to bottom,” said Floyd Mayweather, president of Mayweather Promotions. “Even though we will be two weeks away from my rematch against Maidana, there is no way I would miss this. These guys all live by the motto of ‘Hard work, dedication,’ and I look forward to seeing that hard work pay off on Aug. 30.”

“The Aug. 30 fight kicks off two big weeks for Mayweather Promotions,” said Leonard Ellerbe, CEO of Mayweather Promotions. “With a full roster of our toughest fighters, fans at The Palm will be in for great fights from start to finish just 14 days before the biggest fight of the year.”

“We’re excited to work with Mayweather Promotions and Showtime for another exciting boxing event at The Pearl,” said Billy Conn, Vice President of Entertainment and Special Events for the Pearl at Palms Resort and Casino.

With his huge win against Marco Antonio Periban on “THE MOMENT: Mayweather vs. Maidana” pay-per-view undercard in May, J’Leon Love (18-0, 10 KOs) earned himself the vacant WBA International Super Middleweight Title and the respect of boxing fans who saw him get knocked down, but get back on his feet to defeat Periban. Now the Dearborn Heights, Mich., native looks to earn himself a world title fight with an impressive performance on Aug. 30.

His opponent, Rogelio Medina (32-6, 26 KOs) is a hard-hitter who has racked up the knockouts throughout his career. Still just 25-years-old, the Mexican fighter is looking to find himself in the world title picture with a signature victory against Love on August 30.

A member of the 2008 Gambian Olympic Team, Badou “The Ripper” Jack (16-1-1, 11 KOs) will look to rebound from the first loss of his career, a first-round knockout against Derek Edwards. A victory here will surely return the exciting super middleweight to contender status.
