Hilton Cartagena completed a multi-million dollar renovation campaign introducing a total transformation of 288 main tower guestrooms, as well as upgrades to its pool complex. The 341-room beachfront Hilton Cartagena, located at the tip of El Laguito Peninsula, now welcomes guests to rooms with larger living space and a design that brings the essence of the sea indoors.
Led by two local designers, Juan Manual Garcia and German Lopez Barrera, the new guestrooms deliver a flexible living area complete with new bedding, furniture and nature-inspired ambiance. The first step in the renovation was enlarging the indoor area by incorporating the balcony and terrace space in the rooms’ interior. The designers then focused on creating a space that featured tones and elements of the surrounding landscape, including sand-colored porcelain flooring, natural oak furnishings, and a color scheme said to blend the blues and violets of the sea and sky.
All guestrooms are also outfitted with the Hilton Serenity Collection of amenities featuring plush bedding, high-definition flat screen TV, alarm clock with MP3 player connection, and wireless Internet access. To complement the room renovations, Hilton Cartagena revitalized the pool complex with a number of upgrades, including a new non-slip marble floor and landscaping.
The renovation is part of a larger scope of major projects by individual hotels above standard annual capital expenditures across the global portfolio of Hilton Hotels & Resorts, the flagship brand of Hilton Worldwide. Beginning in 2011, the projects currently total more than $3 billion during a three-year period.
