·         Property Insurance for Contractor’s tools and equipment. In no event shall Hotel, Owners or Hilton Hotels Corporation be liable for any damage to or loss of personal property sustained by Contractor, whether or not it is insured, even if such loss is caused by the negligence of Hotel, Owners or Hilton, its employees, officers, directors, or agents.
B.         Contractor waives on behalf of its self and its insurers all rights against Hotel, Owners or Hilton Hotels Corporation and its agents, officers, directors, and employees for recovery of damages to the extent these damages are covered by its insurance regardless of deductibles and/ or limits, if any.
C.        Such insurance must name the Indemnitees as additional insured under both the General and Automobile liabilities policies on from CG 20 10 endorsement or its equivalent.
D.        Certificates of Insurance should be sent to your Conference Manager, Nicole Fuentes.  Failure to provide such insurance will prohibit Contractor from accessing the Hotel premises. 
A.         The Hotel is committed to a drug and alcohol free work place.  In addition, it is a requirement that all persons on the Hotel premises conduct their job duties in a safe manner.  The Hotel reserves the right to require Contractor’s operations to cease at any time if, in the Hotel’s reasonable estimation, these two policies are not being adhered to. 
B.         Contractor understands and agrees that Contractor is being employed by Group and that the Hotel has no relationship with Contractor outside of the fact that some of the work Contractor is providing to Group will be performed or utilized at the Hotel.  Contractor acknowledges and agrees that Contractor has not been promised, and will not claim, any payment or consideration from Hotel either for complying with the terms of this Agreement or for any other reason.
C.        This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the state where the Hotel is located.  Notwithstanding termination or expiration of the Event, this Agreement shall continue to survive.  This Agreement supersedes all prior agreements between the parties concerning the subject matter hereof and constitutes the entire agreement between the parties with respect thereto.  This Agreement may be modified only with a written instrument duly executed by both of the parties.  No waiver by any party of any breach of this Agreement shall be deemed to be a waiver of any proceeding or succeeding breach; any waiver is only valid if in writing signed by the party making the waiver.  The headings and titles to the paragraphs of this Agreement are inserted for convenience only and shall not be deemed a part of or effect the construction or interpretation or any provision hereof.  This Agreement may be executed in several counterparts, each of which shall be deemed to be an original, and all such counterparts together shall constitute but one and the same instrument.
Neither party hereto shall be deemed to be the drafter of this Agreement and, if this Agreement is construed in any court or arbitration proceeding, said court or arbitrator shall not construe this Agreement or any provision hereof against either party as the drafter hereof.  If any phrase, clause or provisions of this Agreement is declared invalid or unenforceable by a court or arbitrator of competent jurisdiction, such phrase, clause or provision shall be deemed severed from this Agreement, but will not affect any other provision of this Agreement, which shall otherwise remain in full force and effect.  If any restriction or limitation in this Agreement is deemed to be unreasonable, onerous or unduly restrictive by a court or arbitrator of competent jurisdiction, it shall not be stricken in its entirety and held totally void and unenforceable, but shall remain effective to the maximum extent permissible within reasonable bounds.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the parties have executed this Agreement as of the date written above.
