Statement from Hilton: Hurricane Florence

Originally Published by Hilton.

The safety and security of our guests and Team Members is always our top priority. We continue to monitor the path of Hurricane Florence and have prepared our properties and Team Members accordingly in order to minimize the related effects.


Hilton properties located in mandatory evacuation zones in South Carolina, North Carolina and Virginia have evacuated to meet local requirements. Other properties within the storm’s projected path that remain open and operational have implemented their emergency preparedness plans. We are in regular contact with local authorities and our tourism partners as we continue to monitor the impact of Hurricane Florence.

To support our Team Members and communities impacted by the hurricane, Hilton has launched a Hilton Responds Fund. Additionally, Hilton Honors members have the opportunity to donate points to the charity of their choice, with Hilton Honors matching donations up to 100 million points through the end of 2018.

For guests whose travel plans may be affected by Hurricane Florence, modification and cancellation penalties may be waived for stays with arrivals Tuesday, September 11, through Monday, September 17, regardless of travel destination. Guests are encouraged to visit Hilton.com or contact 1-800-HILTONS for the latest information on specific properties.
