Hilton Garden Inn Camden Waterfront Philadelphia opened its doors in December 2020 as the first hotel in Camden, N.J., in more than 50 years. Due to the pandemic, the hotel withheld a grand opening event until it was safe for guests and staff to gather. On June 2, 2021, the hotel honored this monumental occasion with a grand opening celebration featuring speakers, food and beverage from the Water Street Grill, and entertainment that showcases the heart and soul of the City of Camden.

Since opening, the hotel has received several awards, including the “2021 New Good Neighbor Award” from New Jersey Business Magazine and “First Place, Community Impact” from the Philadelphia Business Journal.
