Shreveport-Bossier, La (PRWEB) February 08, 2013
With the grand opening of the dual-branded Hilton Garden Inn and Homewood Suites by Hilton on Wed., March 6, 2013, Shreveport-Bossier celebrates the 10,000 hotel room mark. This opening makes Shreveport-Bossier more appealing to the meeting planners for groups and conventions including corporate, medical, religious, and social (e.g. fraternities, sororities, etc.) markets.
“A lot of large conventions will not consider a destination unless there are 10,000 rooms or more. Now, we are able to approach those meeting planners that were unavailable to us before,” said Dianna Douglas, Regional Sales Manager at the Shreveport-Bossier Convention and Tourist Bureau.
The Hilton Garden Inn and Homewood Suites by Hilton Shreveport-Bossier, Louisiana's first dual-branded hotel, provides groups amenities and services that maximize their budgets, including 9,000-square-feet event space, additional meeting space, the Grand Dahlia Ballroom, a 24/7 business center, free Wi-Fi, full-service restaurant and bar, and on-site catering.
Situated just minutes from I-20, the Hilton Garden Inn and Homewood Suites by Hilton Shreveport-Bossier offers guests centralized accessibility to restaurants and attractions in the area. Attractions include casinos, museums, alligator park, gardens, and more. With this new hotel opening, the Shreveport-Bossier area is ready to showcase all Northwest Louisiana has to offer groups and large conferences.
