Beverly Hilton Apologizes for Golden Globes Shuttle Delays

The Beverly Hilton has apologized for the post-Golden Globes shuttle delays that left more than 1,000 party-goers stranded for up to three hours while waiting for transportation to the hotel for after-parties.

“We are dealing with a dynamic security environment and we will continue to adjust and improve our plans for all future events,” said Beverly Hilton General Manager Sandy Murphy in a statement. For safety precautions, the majority of security screening was stationed away from the hotel, she explained.

“The safety and security of our guests must always be a priority,” said Murphy. “We apologize for any inconvenience or delays this increased security may have caused to our guests.”

In an attempt to strengthen security and limit the number of drop-offs and pick-ups from the Golden Globes site Sunday night, the Hilton sourced a shuttle service to transport guests from a Century City parking lot to the hotel for after-parties.

The first round of shuttles were scheduled to depart the parking lot at 8:30 p.m. following the awards show, but due to the sheer volume of party attendees and a limited number of shuttles, the transportation process was heavily delayed. Some party-goers reported waiting as long as three hours for a shuttle ride.
