MCLEAN, Va. - Hilton Hotels & Resorts, the flagship brand of Hilton Worldwide with more than 550 hotels across six continents, today announced winners of Hilton Brand Awards for 2014. Through these awards, Hilton Hotels & Resorts properties worldwide are recognized for their high performance, with five properties receiving the highly coveted Connie Award, named in honor of the brand's founder Conrad Hilton.

"As a global industry leader, Hilton Hotels & Resorts Team Members are committed to quality experiences for our guests," said Rob Palleschi, global head, full service brands, Hilton Worldwide. "These awards present an opportunity to highlight our hotels and resorts that best exemplify outstanding service, and provide hospitality that ensures every guest feels cared for, valued and respected."

Each year, Hilton recognizes hotels that excel in multiple categories including overall service, marketing, brand culture and housekeeping. The awards are divided amongst four regions (Americas, Asia Pacific, Europe, and Middle East & Africa) with many of the Americas awards presented in two categories: small hotels (less than 500 guest rooms) and large hotels (500 or more guest rooms). The Connie Award is presented to the top-performing hotels in the Hilton portfolio that excel in three key areas: quality assurance audits measuring brand standards, cleanliness and property condition; customer scores rating staff service; and guest loyalty.
