Hilton Baltimore BWI Airport Completes Significant Upgrades

Moves into Top Five Ranking on One of the Top Guest-Rated Websites


Officials of the Hilton Baltimore BWI Airport announced today the completion of a number of transformative renovation upgrades that have elevated the hotel into the top-five ranking among its competitive set, according to reviewers on one of the top guest-rated websites.

The upgrades include a completely made-over lobby, featuring an open-concept lounge with relaxed seating, communal tables and multiple televisions that create a more comfortable setting for catching up with friends and colleagues. Other improvements include the addition of a new function room, The Flight Deck, which at 4,000 square feet, can comfortably accommodate up to 200 guests. In addition, guest hallways were completely refurbished and the fitness center was upgraded with new, state-of-the-art Precor equipment. The final step in refreshing the hotel’s meeting space is the installation of new wall coverings and doors. The hotel’s 16,000 square feet of meeting space is capable of handling from 25 to 800 guests.

Additional upgrades are slated for this fall: the 280-room hotel’s 11th floor concierge lounge will be renovated and the lobby sundry shop is being expanded to provide additional amenities.

“Although the hotel opened only in late 2006, our goal is to keep it fresh and appealing to guests,” said Joseph Bojanowski, president, PM Hotel Group. “The investment and hard work immediately paid off with highly favorable comments from our guests. As a result of the renovation and implementation of new guest service initiatives, website reviewers now rate the Hilton Baltimore BWI Airport in the top five out of 26 competitive hotels. As we settle in from these renovations, our intent is to continue to move up in the rankings.”

“Because of the hotel’s convenient location and great amenities, we host a significant number of business and social gatherings,” said Bill Driscoll, general manager. “These enhancements have had an immediate impact on our guest satisfaction levels and we look forward to attracting new groups, as well as business and leisure travelers to our hotel.”
