Laurens Zieren - General Manager
Laurens Zieren is the General Manager of the New York Hilton Midtown since June 2014. A Hilton employee for almost 20 years, he was previously Hotel Manager of New York Hilton and returns to New York City after five years as general manager of Hilton Chicago O’Hare International Airport.
In his new role, Zieren directs and oversees the day-to-day operations of New York City’s largest hotel, which currently is undergoing a multimillion-dollar, multi-phase refurbishment program that includes a contemporary design for all guestrooms and restoration of meeting space including the Grand Ballroom, the largest column-free ballroom in the City.
“The vision for New York Hilton Midtown began in June 1963 when our company’s founding father, Conrad Hilton, had the idea to develop the largest hotel in the heart of midtown Manhattan and serve as a showplace for international visitors traveling to New York City. I am proud to say that we still retain the title as the largest hotel in Manhattan and we continue to aim high.”
