BEIJING - Hilton Beijing is celebrating its 20th anniversary as an unparalleled travel destination in China's capital city.

Since 1994, Hilton Beijing has been accommodating worldwide travelers with its distinctive and cutting edge services at all times, which has underlined Mr. Conrad Hilton's unwavering commitment to "to ensure every guest feels cared for, valued and respected." This year, Hilton Beijing will celebrate 20 in style, with a series of activities honoring its rich past and bright future.

Hilton Beijing stands proudly in the heart of the capital's business and diplomatic district, just 20 minutes away from Beijing Capital International Airport, with easy access to tourist attractions such as Sanlitun, the Forbidden City, and the Great Wall of China. Major entertainment and shopping venues are also just minutes away. The hotel opened in 1994 with 376 rooms, and in 2008 the 9-story executive tower was added to the current main tower. Hilton Beijing now boasts two towers with 502 spacious guest rooms and suites, 12 function rooms and 360°round banquet ballroom. As the first international hotel chain launched in Beijing, it set a precedent for premier hospitality services and standards, and continues to lead the industry 20 years later. Recently Hilton Beijing has also launched the PURE Room project in the superb Executive Tower, which is also the first hotel who took this innovative step by utilizing state-of-the-art purification techniques whereby each room is treated comprehensively to remove allergens and irritants from all surfaces, fabrics and air flow.

As an iconic landmark amongst the leading hotels in the world, Hilton Beijing stands as a significant landmark in Beijing's colorful history and has received countless rewards from the global media. In 2007, it has been recognized by Global Finance magazine as the "Best Hotel in Beijing", at the same year, the hotel has also taken home double honors from the China Hotel Executive Magazine Awards. During the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games, Hilton Beijing was honored for its on-going commitment for service excellence by the Beijing Organizing Committee for the Olympic Games (BOCOG).

For the past splendent 20 years, Hilton Beijing has not only been receiving praises from the society, it also been continuously giving back to the community. The hotel has actively participated in numerous social charity events, such as fund raising and clothes denotation for local orphanage, annual international Earth Hour event. Especially for the past 4 years Christmas Tree Lighting and Train Launching Ceremony, the hotel has successfully raised RMB100,000 for each of the first 3 years and an extraordinary RMB150,000 in the past year, all funds have been donated to deserving local charities.

Hilton Beijing has continued to spread the light and warmth of hospitality ever since its opening.
