ASSOCIATE AT HILTON GARDEN INN FRENCH QUARTER/CBD
WINS NATIONAL HOTEL AWARD
Bell staffer King Semiean is honored as 2011 national winner
of Catch Me at My Best® program for helping Hilton guests

NEW ORLEANS, LA (December 5, 2011)-King Semiean's years of experience in the communications industry helped him in his new career in the hospitality industry to be named one of 21 national winners in Hilton's Catch Me at My Best competition.

Semiean, who has worked for a number of New Orleans media outlets, changed careers recently to go into the hospitality industry where he saw more opportunity. "After years of working for newspaper, radio and TV stations here in New Orleans, I recognize hospitality is the growth industry in this community, and I wanted to apply my communications skills to help visitors enjoy all that New Orleans has to offer," he said.

The Hilton's program is designed to recognize hotel team members from all Hilton brands to reinforce the company's standards of exceptional service and hospitality. Winners were chosen from Hilton properties in 18 countries.

For winning in New Orleans, Semiean was awarded an Apple iPod Touch®.

"King acts as a one-person concierge to our guests," said Kristi Taglauer, general manager of the Hilton Garden Inn French Quarter/CBD. "He has generated dozens of comment cards from guests who have singled him out for helping them find restaurants and attractions in this area that make their stay in our hotel and our city so special," Taglauer added.
