TUMON, Guam - Hilton Guam Resort & Spa, the first international five-star hotel on Guam, is celebrating its 40th birthday with a host of special events, contests and promotions. Festivities will run throughout the year, and kickstarted with the hotel's 40th Anniversary Cocktail Party held in February.

The cocktail party saw corporate clients and valued guests gathering for an entertaining evening which included a special BMW Car Raffle Giveaway, where guests were able to purchase tickets for a chance to win a BMW 128i Coupe, or hotel stays throughout the region. Guests won hotel room nights in properties such as Hilton Guangzhou, Millennium Hilton Bangkok and Conrad Centennial Singapore. Notable local dignitaries also graced the special occasion and addressed the guests, while Hilton Guam team presented a historical slideshow presentation of the property, before guests partied to live entertainment. At the event, Hilton Guam also recognized outstanding current and former staff members and its community partners.

"We are delighted to be celebrating 40 wonderful years in Guam and appreciate all the support we have received throughout the years, especially from the people of Guam," said Nicolaus Priesnitz, general manager at Hilton Guam. "We have always focused on giving back to the community and will continued to stay focused on providing exceptional hospitality experiences to our guests."

Hilton Guam first opened on February 17, 1972, and represented a milestone in the development of tourism in Guam and as well as the Hilton brand's expansion in the region. Through the years, Hilton Guam has doubled its room inventory, opened an array of memorable restaurants and built new recreational facilities - all the while extending gracious island hospitality to all guests.

In celebration of its 40th anniversary, the hotel has planned a host of exciting room and dining promotions which will be rolled out throughout this year.
