EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ—Thirty-year hotel veteran Steven S. Kaiser has joined the 427-room Hilton Meadowlands as general manager.
The hotel, which recently converted to the Hilton brand from the Sheraton Meadowlands, is located across the street from the Meadowlands Complex, including the MetLife Stadium, home of the 2014 Super Bowl.
“Steve has worked for top-rated hotels on both coasts, the last 20 years on the East Coast, including multiple properties in New Jersey,” stated Joseph Bojanowski, president of PM Hospitality Strategies (PMHS), operators of the property. “He most recently was general manager of our Hilton Baltimore BWI Airport property, which has consistently received high guest satisfaction ratings. His in-depth experience with the Hilton hotel brand, as well as extensive background in meetings, events and food and beverage, are a perfect fit for the Hilton Meadowlands.”
The hotel recently completed a multi-million dollar upgrade that included a makeover of nearly half of the hotel’s rooms, the lobby and hallways. A second phase will complete the renovation later next year. The property plans on being a major host during the upcoming Super Bowl XLVIII.
“The recent renovation, coupled with the strength of the Hilton brand and its HHonors guest frequency program, points to a great future ahead for the Hilton Secaucus Meadowlands,” Kaiser stated. “We have a solid operations team in place, and I look forward to showcasing the property’s 30,000 square feet of meeting space, which is capable of hosting up to 1,000 guests.”
The hotel features the 130-seat Chairman’s Grill, offering American cuisine; The Lounge, featuring light fare; and a Starbucks Café.

For the past few years, the talk of The Lodging Conference in Phoenix had been focused on the economic recovery, solid industry projections and “cautious optimism.” With the word cautious no longer necessary, the economic outlook took a backseat this year to the seemingly unending parade of new lifestyle brands.
