Hilton Hotels Project

 

OK so here we go. Since there seems to be an interest in the Hilton chain of hotels, I'm starting a new project to collect and geocode all of their locations.

Anyone wanting to join in, please feel free. I'd love the help.

If you go to hilton's website (www1.hilton.com) and use their locator and only put in a state and choose "all hilton family of hotels" it seems to pull all their locations by state.

Then if you'll send them to me as a CSV with this format I'll compile them into a single POI file:
Field 1 - Longitude
Field 2 - Latitude
Field 3 - Hotel Name
Field 4 - Address & phone

So call out the state you want to do.

Ok - I'm in

I'll take one state FL. Look like ~200 locations.

Do you want the Hotel Name to equal their web site name?

Hope there is no time pressure...

Bob

Ouch! 200 locations. You can share the state with someone if you want.

No time pressure from me, but if you need some help just let me know.

Thanks. I've updated the original post to reflect what's currently claimed and what's still available.

sasines

Got your files added to the main one. Thanks.

I just added Florida...

Thanks to Summermug for providing all the FL locations.

I just checked and with the states we have so far we are already at almost 700 locations. WOW! This is going to be a big file when it's complete.

The famous jails/prisons POI.
The latest Hilton hotel POI.

Thanks for the help Paris! :0

Thanks guys

Bob & Alan, Thanks for the help. It is always apreciated. I put your names by your states.

As I spent most of the day out in the sun (apparently too much time), I'll be spending tomorrow inside and probably theresore at the computer working on this project. Hopefully we'll see some progress as a result.

AZ NM & TX

I just added these 3 states.

We are over 1200 locations and counting! It'll be interesting to see how big this file gets.

Trouble with a location

Does anyone know of a way to visually geocode a location by pointing to a location on a map or something? Here's the problem:

Hampton Inn Kayenta Highway 160, Kayenta, Arizona, USA 86033

Batch Geocode mapped it way off the highway on an Indian Reservation with no roads for miles around. So I've been trying to find a way to get a Lat. and Long. by clicking on a map and then matching it up with the map and directions on Hilton's website.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Aaron

Found it in using Google

Found it in using Google Maps and then MapSource.

Try this.

N36 42.451 W110 14.912

Thanks

I guess I'll have to break down and see about getting a copy of MapSource. I'm off to verify these new coordinates.

Thanks again

You're awsome Summermug.

I added your name to NC.

I have all the additions from the last day or two ready to upload as soon as I can get a few minutes to verify a couple of things at home. I'll check back before I do the update and include whatever you have ready at that time.

Have a good day. I'm off to bed here soon. I'll be back this afternoon.

Hilton_NC

Incorrectly name the first file and resent it as Hilton_NC.

I finally got the chance to update this. I think that I got everything included. If I missed something let me know as it was a big update so I likely forgot/missed something.

Bob & Alan, thanks for the help. We are up to 2276 POIs in this file! When I started this project I knew that it'd be a big one, but I never dreamed it'd be this big.

Bob, I'm off to try to get those screen captures I promised you regarding batch geocode and it not being able to locate an address.

Will do OH & WV

Try to complete in the next day.
