A HILTON BY ANY OTHER NAME ...? As of last month, Hilton International has withdrawn its management and endorsement of its namesake properties in Indonesia. Although the Jakarta Hilton International, the Lagoon Tower Jakarta Hilton International, the Hilton Residence, the Patra Surabaya Hilton International and the Bali Hilton International will retain the H-word, the luxury properties were stripped of all Hilton management support, including sales, marketing and the HHonors frequent stay program.
