Hilton Hotels Corporation has announced that the Hilton Short Hills has completed an $8 million renovation of its guest floors. The 18-month refurbishment project at the award-winning urban resort-style hotel features fresh, sophisticated design and décor in eye-pleasing colors and hues and upgraded amenities in all 304 guest rooms, including four inviting luxury, 32 junior and one Presidential suites.
Providing discerning business and leisure travelers a unique mix of city hotel sophistication and luxury resort ease, the rooms at Hilton Short Hills rooms boast new carpeting in subtle tones, complemented by lushly upholstered furnishings in harmonious teal, gold and earth tone colors and patterns. Dark high-gloss credenzas, accommodating desks and ergonomic chairs underscore the contemporary elegance of the room décor.
New upscale in-room amenities include Hilton Serenity Collection® Suite Dreams® bed with plush-top mattress, designed to provide continuous support for restful, refreshing sleep. Comfortable down comforter and pillows and indulgent 250-thread count linens snuggle the sleeper in comfort and warmth adorn the bed. Each guest room features a 32-inch LCD flat screen television, elegantly framed and mounted above the credenza and positioned opposite the bed for maximum viewing comfort; wired/wireless high-speed internet access; an expansive work station; Cuisinart® dual cup coffee maker; the Hilton Family CD player/Clock with easy-to-set alarm and MP3 connectivity; refreshment center; in-room safe for laptop and valuables, and plush robe. Further, guest bathrooms boast marble tub surrounds, marble vanities and countertops, new curved-rod shower curtains, and new Hilton Serenity bath amenities in brushed stainless steel.
“The upscale Hilton service, guest accommodations, services and amenities we offer continue to boost Short Hills as an urban resort-style destination,” says Bert James, hotel general manager and area vice president, Hilton Hotels Corporation. “With the completion of our renovation, the hotel is certain to surpass our guest expectations.”
Hilton Short Hills also has initiated a more eco-friendly “smoke-free” policy throughout the hotel. The smoking of cigarettes and cigars is no longer permitted in guest rooms and, in accordance with New Jersey state regulations, no smoking is allowed in indoor public areas including meeting rooms, restaurants, bars/lounges, and lobby entrance. Hotel guests who wish to smoke while on the hotel property may do so only in designated areas outside of the hotel.
“Recognizing a growing desire by guests for smoke-free accommodations, the launch of our smoke-free policy is in direct response to the wishes expressed by our hotel clientele,” says Mr. James.
Hilton Short Hills is the recipient of numerous awards over the years. Most recently, the hotel received Award of Excellence honors from the New York Times, Gourmet and Wine Spectator for its superb food and wine list offerings, respectively, and Successful Meetings’ prestigious Pinnacle Award for its overall high standard of meeting excellence.
