Fort Lauderdale, Fla. - Hilton Fort Lauderdale Beach Resort today announced its participation in Hilton Huanying, a tailored experience for all travelers of Chinese origin. The Hilton Worldwide program inspired by the Chinese word for "welcome" enables travelers to book at Hilton Fort Lauderdale Beach Resort and other participating hotels with confidence, knowing the properties will meet cultural needs and expectations of Chinese travelers abroad.

Hilton Huanying includes three key touch points of the on-property experience - arrival, guest room and Breakfast at Hilton. Elements of the Hilton Huanying experience include a front desk team member fluent in Mandarin; guest room amenities such as a selection of Chinese teas and teakettles, slippers, and a dedicated television channel with Chinese programming; and breakfast items including congee, dim sum, and fried rice and noodles.

"We are pleased to participate in this program to share our passion of refined hospitality and distinct personalized service for this very important market," said Andreas Ioannou, general manager, Hilton Fort Lauderdale Beach Resort.

Hilton Huanying was introduced in 2011 following research into the needs of international travelers and unique market insight resulting from the company's more than 20 years of experience operating in China.
