Hilton Americas-Houston transforms its in-room entertainment

Hilton Americas-Houston, the largest convention hotel in Houston, forms a television partnership with Bulk TV & Internet. Bulk TV is providing a full residential lineup and interactive channel guide throughout the property's 1,200 guestrooms.

"The DIRECTV Residential Experience (DRE) is an outstanding amenity we are now able to provide to our guests," said Jacques D'Rovencourt, hotel manager for the Hilton Americas-Houston. "DRE offers the familiar comfort of the same entertainment experience guests receive in their own home, which is in alignment with our goal of making our guests feel like they are at home when staying with us. Additionally, the extensive HD channel selection allows us to differentiate ourselves from other brands."

Located in the heart of downtown, the 24-story Hilton Americas-Houston is known for providing leading edge technological amenities in order to give guests an unparalleled experience. As a complement to the hotel's offerings, DRE offers a robust HD lineup with more than 100 channels, a faster interactive programming guide and an anti-microbial, simplified remote. DRE is one of the recent advancements the property has made to enhance the overall guest experience. The hotel is also adding a Starbucks in the east lobby that will be close to 5,000 square feet as well as an onsite UPS Store.
