Statement updated August 31, 2017

As we continue to monitor the impact of Hurricane Harvey in Texas and the surrounding areas, our thoughts are with those who have been and continue to be affected by this devastating storm.

We are moved by the acts of selflessness exhibited by our hotels and Team Members as they go above and beyond to help the communities where they live and work during this challenging time.

To support our Team Members and our communities impacted by Harvey, Hilton has committed a total of $500,000 to the relief and recovery efforts led by the American Red Cross, and to our Hilton Responds Fund to assist affected Team Members. We are also providing our Hilton Honors Members with the opportunity to donate their points to the American Red Cross. Additionally, the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation, a private family foundation established in 1944 by the founder of Hilton Hotels, Conrad N. Hilton, has also pledged $500,000 for a total of $1,000,000 contributed by the two organizations.

Hilton has approximately 120 properties in Harvey's path, and most remain operational, some with limited services. Our immediate priority is to assist our guests, Team Members and first responders, as their safety and security is of paramount importance.

Cancellation fees will be waived for travelers heading to or within the affected areas. We encourage guests with upcoming reservations to contact 1-800-HILTONS for the most up-to-date information.
