Big Yawn As Hilton Changes Name

Category: Hotels, Posted:30 Sep 2009 | 10:12 am

One of the most recognizable hotel brands on the planet Hilton has officialy changed its name from Hilton Hotels Corp to Hilton Worldwide. According to releases from the group the new name 'reflect the company's rich heritage and status as a global hotel company with its objective of continuing to grow internationally.' With ten brands and more then 3.300 hotels worldwide the group has also introduced a new logo and look to the company.

For hotel owners which are struggling in one of the worst economic times, re-branding's by hotel chains is a contentious issues as it involves substantial investment in signage, guest supplies and amenities. Often time's management companies or chains are forced to shoulder the cost or take up a portion of it. As to whether the new image will reinvigorate guest loyalty, time will be the test of that.
