Rochester, Minn., Oct. 22, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- On October 17th, Hilton Rochester Mayo Clinic Area, the newest Hilton property in Rochester, Minn., hosted a lavish event to celebrate the hotel’s successful opening, Hilton’s 100-year anniversary and a continued successful partnership with Mayo Clinic. The event featured a red carpet, aerial dancers, live music and an impressive fireworks display. Guests included prominent members of Hilton Corporate and Mayo Clinic as well as influential individuals from the city of Rochester. 

“This event was the perfect way to celebrate Hilton’s long-lasting relationship with Mayo Clinic,” said Andy Chafoulias, Owner of Avra Hospitality. “We’re proud to say that Rochester, Minnesota is the only city where “take me to Hilton” means world-class health care and world-class hospitality, of which are located within a 10-minute walk from each other. We look forward to continuing to offer an oasis for visitors of Rochester.”

The relationship with Hilton hotels and Mayo Clinic dates back to the 1920’s. Conrad Hilton, founder of the Hilton Hotels chain, was a loyal patient at Mayo Clinic and enjoyed frequent visits to the city of Rochester. In 1972, Hilton’s donation of $10 million helped launch the Conrad N. Hilton Medical Laboratory and Research Center in Human Behavior, which was the first building in the Mayo complex designed specifically for laboratory medicine. Today, Hilton Rochester Mayo Clinic Area joins the Conrad N. Hilton Building for Laboratory Medicine in service to the city, region, nation and world.

“This is an exciting time for our organization, we have a lot to celebrate,” said Miki Radovanovic, General Manager of the Hilton Rochester Mayo Clinic Area. “In addition to Hilton’s 100-year anniversary and a long-lasting partnership with Mayo Clinic, Hilton Rochester hotel has had a strong first six-months. Not only are we ranked the number one Hilton Hotels and Resorts property worldwide for guest experience, but we’ve also been fortunate to donate thousands of dollars and hundreds of volunteer hours to local organizations and charities. We look forward to offering Rochester and beyond the highest level of hospitality and service for years to come.”
