Hilton Daytona Beach Completes $20 Million Transformation

Hilton Daytona Beach/Ocean
Walk Village—formerly Adam’s Mark—reopens Feb. 1, 2005 after
completing the $20 million refurbishment to upgrade the 742-room
beachfront property. Located on Daytona Beach’s only traffic-free beach,
Hilton’s newest oceanfront property offers guest renovated accommodations
while utilizing the Hilton HHonors(R) frequent guest program. Part of
Ocean Walk Village—a $400 million vacation and entertainment district
—the Hilton sits directly across from the Ocean Center and is connected
to the Ocean Walk Shoppes. The dramatic renovation of the property makes the beach setting an
intrinsic part of the hotel. The lobby is reconfigured to give guests a
breathtaking view of the ocean while the current restaurant is relocated
to the hotel’s beach side providing year-round indoor/outdoor dining.
Renovations include complete refurbishment of all guest rooms in the North
and South Towers with new bathrooms, furniture, beds, carpeting and wall
coverings. Both conservative and classy with a modern spin, some rooms are
furnished with dark wood, plush furniture and a mix of mellow gold, greens
and reds, while others are endowed with a summer home style of distinct
blue, yellow and light green shades. Lush landscaping was also added to
showcase the building, beachfront and create a greater sense of arrival
while maintaining traditional Floridian style.

With 60,000 square feet of flexible indoor and outdoor meeting space, the
Hilton Daytona Beach/Ocean Walk Village is the largest meetings and
convention hotel in the area. Located across from Ocean Center—which
will triple in size to 200,000 square feet of meeting and exhibit space by
2007—the combined facilities support groups of more than 20,000
delegates. Offering a complete audio-visual support department, a fully
equipped business center, high-speed Internet access to all guests and
dedicated service management for each function, the hotel satisfies the
most sophisticated meeting requirements.
