DURBAN, South Africa - Hilton Durban has announced the completion of a two-month upgrade to its 327 rooms and fitness centre as part of a "soft" refurbishment programme to enhance the guest experience with the latest amenities and technology.

Part of the refurbishment saw all standard rooms fitted with new 40-inch high definition televisions, 46-inch high definition in all suites and a 55-inch high definition television in the Presidential Suite. Guests can also enjoy a good night's rest with the Hilton Serenity beds by Serta. Custom designed to exact specifications, the beds are posturized for added coil support and feature a unique internal design that prevents edge breakdown. An innovative, patented quilt design and inviting plush top mattress improves circulation and reduces nighttime restlessness.

The fitness centre received a full makeover, with new state-of-the-art gym equipment including the latest "Element +" and "Excite" equipment by Technogym, revamped flooring, towel stations and new water features. "Excite" is the new cardiovascular range of equipment designed to make training fun and interactive. Tailored to suit the user's needs, it is also equipped with a television with a built-in interactive touch screen which enables users to listen to the radio, watch television or plug in their own MP3 player.

Mohamed Hamza, general manager, Hilton Durban, said the hotel would keep upgrading its facilities and services to meet the expectations of its guests.

"As a corporate hotel, it is our duty to ensure that our guests are comfortable at all times," said Hamza. "We believe the upgraded amenities will provide the kind of relaxed environment that our guests need to unwind."
