Hilton Management Services William B. Fortier

“It is my pleasure to endorse Hilton’s management services group. I would be pleased to serve as a reference for any prospective owner. Ashford has been very impressed with the year-to-date Hilton-managed portfolio performance. The Hilton team consistently does an exceptional job controlling costs, improving margins, increasing RevPAR index while also delivering strong guest satisfaction. HMS consistently delivers solid results and has proven to be a good steward of our assets. Hilton offers a strong brand, a very loyal customer and high quality property-level and corporate associates. As an owner, it is comforting knowing your properties are in great hands. We find Hilton to be extremely owner-friendly and responsive to our requests.”
