Portland Airport Hilton Garden Inn begins upgrades

The Hilton Garden Inn Portland Airport in Portland, Maine is undertaking a renovation project to first add 36 rooms to the hotel, followed by the addition of an executive boardroom this December. All the renovations are eyed to be completed also by the end of December.

In addition, the hotel will also be participating in Hilton’s "Project Grow," the plan that reflects an update to the hotel’s main lobby and lounge area with a nature-inspired design. The area will also feature cabana draperies in the cupola area, pendant lighting with lanterns, large planters and signature artwork exclusive to Hilton Garden Inn.

Other recent upgrades to this Portland getaway hotel include in-room technology updates to faster HSIA, and lodge net interactive TV that allows guests to use iPads or smartphones to control or order movies. The property also installed a virtual local guide app in the rooms, as well as a new flight app.
