A business centre is also available for convenience while the Executive lounge offers a space to rewind and relax or connect with other travelers over complimentary refreshments and canapés.
The hotel also offers Hilton’s Meet with Purpose program, incorporating health, wellness and waste reduction into meetings and events. Balanced and nutritious meals, refreshing and invigorating activities and a smaller carbon footprint to help today’s meeting planners organize mindful and purposeful meetings.
