About This Program
To experience the music of a place is to understand its culture. As the global leader in hospitality, Hilton properties are the world’s front door to local culture. And because Hilton Honors gets you more of what matters, the program is designed to honor members with a front row seat to the cultures of Hilton cities through unique music experiences and engaging stories.
This program was built from Hilton’s rich legacy to some of the most iconic moments in music in cities all over the world. These are the specific places that inspired some of our most cherished songs, from “New York State of Mind” to “London Calling”. Music is woven into street corners and music halls, hotel rooms and nightclubs. It’s a celebration of the places where music actually happened. Its legacy is sometimes right beneath our feet and we don’t even know it.

MUSIC HAPPENS WHERE YOU LEAST EXPECT IT
From sidewalks and subways to coffee shops and clubs – music is all around you. Follow along as we take you on a tour of some of the most established musical cities and discover where music really happens.
SECOND CITY, FIRST IN MUSIC
It might be in the middle of the Heartland but Chicago has never been middle of the road. From church music to House music, Chicago balances precariously on the edge of an ever-changing music scene. Whether it's the 60s Summer of Love hitting a sour note or a trip down Route 66, the sounds of the Windy City will be forever blowing up our airways.
RAINING DOWN MUSIC
Under rainy skies that give way to striking views of the Pacific Northwest mountains lies a city at the center of groundbreaking music. It was in Seattle where grunge first took hold, becoming the voice of an angst-ridden generation. Seattle is and will always be a city alive with music.
BORN ON THE BAYOU
The sounds of brass echo across the crowded avenues and town squares of New Orleans. A place where the rhythm of the Congo live on in jazz and where ragtime meets rap. In the Big Easy music is a way of life.
Every legend has a beginning. These are the stories of the artists that made London the music city it is today. From the spaceman who fell to earth from mars, to the flying pig that grounded Heathrow airport—their stories happened here.
