On July 16th, Hilton Los Angeles/Universal City had the pleasure of welcoming back President Ma Ying-Jeou of Republic of China (Taiwan). President Ma had journeyed to Republic of China’s diplomatic allies, the Dominican Republic, Haiti and Nicaragua. On his return trip home to Taiwan, the President stopped over in Los Angeles for one night and once again chose Hilton Universal City for his stay. It was President Ma’s 4th time staying at our hotel.
Over 400 supporters gathered outside the hotel to get a glimpse and a handshake from the President. The excited group of supporters cheered and took pictures as President Ma arrived at the hotel and stepped onto the red carpet. President Ma was welcomed back to Hilton Los Angeles/Universal City by Chairman Denn Hu, General Manager Mark Davis, and over 50 proud members of our team. The President graciously took the time to personally greet and shake hands with many of our team members as he made his way through the lobby.
In the evening 400 loyal Los Angeles residents attended a special dinner hosted by the President in our Sierra Ballroom. The guests enjoyed a specially prepared five course meal created by Executive Chef George Sit, assisted by our Mandarin Chef, Barry Chan. All the dinner guests had the opportunity to take a picture with President Ma, and at the conclusion of the event everyone joined the President in singing a Taiwanese Song. It was truly a magical and unforgettable evening for all!
When President Ma departed the next day, after a morning jog with Chairman Hu, our Hilton team and 200 Taiwanese guests gathered to wish him farewell. As he left through the main entrance of the hotel everyone waved Taiwan & US flags and chanted his name. Thank you, President Ma, for choosing Hilton Los Angeles/Universal City as your home away from home.
