Tempo by Hilton, Hilton’s newest lifestyle brand, offers approachable and thoughtfully designed accommodations to help guests relax and recharge. By combining intelligent design and diverse lifestyle partnerships, the brand was curated to serve a growing segment of modern achievers who seek a hotel experience that reflects their ambition. The brand’s guests strive to find a balance in their travel routines between healthy and indulgent while navigating everything in between along the way.
As Tempo by Hilton’s exclusive provider of premium coffee, espresso and tea products, guests and locals alike will be able to enjoy Bluestone Lane’s beverages at the hotel’s cafés, reinforced by the brand’s renowned approachable service. With a made-to-order menu focused on sophisticated, clean and natural foods, the café will offer a variety of options for every taste bud and dietary need, including vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options. Sample dishes include Bluestone Lane’s signature avocado smash, chili egg scramble, grain bowls, wraps and sandwiches. In addition, Bluestone Lane will offer beverage forward programming complemented by small plates and snacks as part of Tempo by Hilton’s evening bar experience, as well as a selection of ready-to-drink coffee beverages, juices and teas for those looking for grab-and-go options.
