Hilton Worldwide signed a management agreement with ASPA, a real estate developer in the Patagonia region, to operate a new-build 130-room Hilton Garden Inn hotel in Neuquén, Argentina – capital of Neuquén province and Patagonia's largest city. Scheduled to open in 2018, this new Hilton Garden Inn hotel in one of Argentina's primary agricultural and industrial centers furthers the company's plans to introduce its brands throughout the country.
Hilton Garden Inn Neuquén will be located within a mixed-use complex offering offices and residences. The hotel, to be developed as part of the project's phase one under a condo-hotel finance structure, will occupy the first 13 of the building's 28 floors and find itself adjacent to IRSA's Alto Comahue Shopping center, within walking distance to the city's financial and entertainment district, and less than five miles to Presidente Perón International Airport. Additionally, the city of Neuquén is the closest major city to Vaca Muerta, oil and shale gas reservoir, as well as home to Argentina's main energy providers.
The property’s architecture was created by ASPA's in-house architects combined with the interior design of Caparra-Entelman Architects.
Hilton Garden Inn Neuquén will have 130 guestrooms and suites. Rooms will be outfitted with an ergonomic desk chair and oversized work desk, high-definition flat-screen television and a "hospitality center" with a mini refrigerator and coffee maker.
Dining options will include a full service restaurant and lobby bar. The hotel will also have a 24-hour Pavilion Pantry shop.
Recreational facilities at the property will include an indoor swimming pool and a complimentary fitness center.
Travelers to Hilton Garden Inn Neuquén will also have access to nearly 6,500 square feet of meeting space, including four meeting rooms and ballroom; as well as Hilton Garden Inn brand attributes such as complimentary Wi-Fi and a 24-hour business center. A parking area with 75 spaces will complete the facilities.
Hilton Worldwide currently has two hotels open in Argentina: Hilton Buenos Aires and Hilton Garden Inn Tucuman.
