Marking the 100th anniversary of Hilton on May 31, hundreds of Hilton hotels worldwide conducted “Random Acts of Hospitality” in order to give back to their communities and represent the strength of Hilton hospitality. The Hilton Garden Inn Portland Downtown Waterfront joined the Hilton movement as it set out to clean up the area’s Eastern Promenade and East End Beach. The hotel teamed with other Hilton-branded properties in Portland, as well as the City of Portland Parks and Recreation to make the cleanup program a success.

“Creating community is an important Hilton value that has been at the center of Conrad Hilton’s founding vision for the last century,” says Kim Strondak, director of sales at the Hilton Garden Inn Portland Downtown Waterfront. “Hilton’s mission is to spread the light and warmth of hospitality throughout the world. That mission begins when we answer the phone to make a reservation and extends to our local backyard relationships and important causes here in Maine.”

Around 60 team members from the nine Hilton hotels in Greater Portland made a splash at the waterfront as they spent the afternoon cleaning up the beach, trail and water’s edge.
