Hilton Promenade at Branson Landing announces Valentine’s Day opening

Branson, Missouri will celebrate Valentine’s Day with the opening of the Hilton Promenade at Branson Landing. The new, elegantly appointed hotel welcomed its first guests Wednesday during a special ribbon-cutting ceremony.

The Hilton Promenade at Branson Landing is operated by Boutique Hotel Development Company, L.L.C. under a franchise license agreement with Hilton Inns, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Hilton Hotels Corporation. The hotel is owned and managed by HCW Development Company, LLC of Branson, which is also the developer of Branson Landing.

The Hilton Promenade at Branson Landing is the first of three new Hilton facilities scheduled to open in Branson in 2007. The Branson Convention Center, which is owned by the City of Branson and managed by Hilton, and the adjacent Hilton Branson Convention Center Hotel, will open in August 2007.

“With a warm, boutique feel and modern, elegant amenities, the Hilton Promenade at Branson Landing is designed to help our guests achieve transformation, productivity and reinvigoration through travel,” said Jeff Diskin, senior vice president, Hilton Brand Management. “We are proud to be a part of this exciting new chapter in the history of Branson.”

“We are thrilled to be able to introduce this new level of exclusive service and enjoyment to Branson,” said Mark Hartman, general manager, Hiltons of Branson. “Branson already attracts more than seven million visitors a year. Now, with the opening of the Hilton Promenade at Branson Landing, guests will have yet another reason to visit this exciting city.

“The Hilton Promenade at Branson Landing is one of the centerpieces of Branson Landing, a $420 million shopping and entertainment district located on the shores of Lake Taneycomo. The hotel, which is situated in the town square of Branson Landing, features 242 guest rooms and 2,000 square feet of gathering space for meetings and special events. Several rooms offer views of a stunning water fountain designed specifically for Branson Landing by the creators of the Bellagio Fountains of Las Vegas.

The hotel’s hospitality staff includes 125 hand picked team members, all of whom were required to pass a detailed and rigorous training program based on the Hilton Promenade at Branson Landing’s signature “10 Points of Service” pledge. After candidates complete the program – which emphasizes the hotels commitment to superior service, hospitality and presentation – they’re presented with a “10 Points Pin” and a blue bracelet emblazoned with the phrase “Be Hospitable” that will be worn as part of their uniform.
