Hilton hits record growth in 2017

In 2017, Hilton achieved its own growth record, unveiled industry-leading innovations, and introduced new benefits for guests and team members.

2017 was a year of industry firsts, including the launch of Five Feet To Fitness, Hilton Honours loyalty program partnership with Amazon and Tapestry Collection by Hilton. It was also the year that Hilton introduced the Connected Room – the first truly mobile-centric hotel room that will let guests personalise and control their stays from the award-winning Hilton Honours smartphone app.

“Last year was another pioneering year for our team around the world, with the launch of new technologies, brands, and partnerships that redefine the guest experience,” said Christopher J. Nassetta, president & chief executive officer, Hilton.

“After achieving record numbers across all development metrics, we look forward to driving even greater momentum as we charge toward Hilton’s centennial anniversary in 2019.”

“For the third straight year, Hilton recorded its best ever results in net unit growth, approvals, and construction starts,” said Kevin Jacobs, chief financial officer, Hilton.

“We achieved 6.5 percent net unit growth, a record 51,574 net new rooms, and finished 2017 with the highest number of rooms under construction in the industry.”
