Hilton Trinidad & Conference Centre Announces Refurbishment
405-room Caribbean urban resort unveils upgrades
PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad and Tobago - Hilton Trinidad & Conference Centre announces today the completion of a property-wide refresh. Managed by the Hilton Design team, the redesign introduces a transformation inspired by the hotel’s original 1962 architecture led by Warner, Burns, Toan and Lunde and includes upgrades to public spaces, recreation, dining and accommodation.
The hotel’s 405 rooms underwent a subtle refresh. The property’s 250 garden view and executive floor guest rooms were updated with new carpet, curtains and upholstery, incorporating new décor with hues of grey, beige and orange complemented by white and light blue tones. The mix of the rooms’ rich wood and bright modern colors offer a vibrant and fresh Caribbean vibe. Hilton Trinidad’s remaining 155 north wing deluxe guest rooms have new 55-inch high definition TV.
To complement its famed Luce, sushi and tapas restaurant, Hilton Trinidad Conference & Centre debuted Herbs and Spices, an eatery paying tribute to the island’s culinary heritage featuring an opulent breakfast buffet, rotating, live cooking buffets for lunch and fresh a la carte market style dinner. Herbs and Spices also welcomes guests to themed nights serving fresh lobster on Fridays and sizzling lava stone meals on Saturdays, and features its own indoor herb garden, providing fresh ingredients.
The property also opened Samaan3, a new lobby bar with a combination of high tops and stools, comfortable sofas, low tables and armchairs offering guests a casual setting for pre-dinner cocktails, light bites or an evening nightcap. The outdoor Cascadoo Bar & Grille was also upgraded for guests to enjoy casual poolside dining, and the final touch to the hotel’s culinary additions debuts this month with The Chocolate Box! - an interactive chocolate shop using 100 percent international award-winning Trini cocoa and featuring refined chocolate delicacies.
Meetings and Events
As the premier destination for events on the island, Hilton Trinidad & Conference Centre completed refurbishment of its two largest meeting spaces: Grand Ballroom and La Boucan.
The lobby was renovated to provide a new sense of arrival with fresh furniture and a functional front office featuring a separate check-in desk for Hilton Honors members and a designated connectivity center area.
The swimming pool complex was completely redone with a new pool design that has now made it the most popular location for weekend leisure. The new pool area features sleek furniture, Jacuzzi, in water lounge chairs, chic cabanas, kids pool and game corner. Guests also have access to resurfaced tennis courts, state-of-the-art fitness center with sauna, massage rooms and private locker facilities. Additionally, guests can partake in weekly yoga, tai chi and aqua aerobics, as well as enjoy scheduled lessons or private clinics with a local tennis pro.
For guests seeking to experience the local culture, Hilton Trinidad & Conference Centre features the second-largest collection of local art on the island, boasting more than 100 pieces of artwork throughout the hotel, including displays in the lobby, restaurant areas, event space corridors and more. What’s more, the hotel offers a monthly “Art at Hilton” exhibition featuring new local artwork each month, paired with local artist chats and cocktails. To complete the hotel’s diverse cultural offering, through a partnership with the local Academy of the Performing Arts, Hilton Trinidad’s Samaan 3 restaurant will feature emerging local artists on weekday evenings and at special events starting late March.
“We are excited to welcome guests with our latest upgrades and look forward to further elevating their visit with our art and music offerings,” said Olivier Maumaire, general manager, Hilton Trinidad & Conference Centre. “The modern design combined with upgraded amenities and unparalleled service allows us to offer guests an exceptional experience when visiting Port of Spain.”
Situated on a lush hill among 25 acres of landscaped gardens, Hilton Trinidad & Conference Centre boasts breathtaking views of the city, Port of Spain, Queen’s Park Savannah and Northern Range. The ideal location also provides guests with close range to popular local attractions, including Botanical Gardens, Fort George, Emperor Valley Zoo, Maracas Beach and Asa Wright Nature Centre. A unique feature of this “upside down hotel” is the entrance is located on the top floor and the elevator descends to guest rooms with private balconies.
