Two months ahead of schedule, the Hilton Gardens could open at the end of April at the old Kitty Hawk pier. That's good because the May events calendar is booking up.
Most people get their first taste of the banks in a hotel room and with more of the old motels coming down in favor of new boxy cottages, there's a growing vacancy in the tourism mix.
It's hard to miss the five story double tower, but Hilton has tried to blend their 180 room complex into the community with architectural hints and a clean look. The Hilton Gardens will take on 100 or so hires from the region full time. Scores of local folks are already working double time to roll out the red carpet.
