Hilton Worldwide is moving into a new country: The company has signed a management agreement with Grupo Rahal to operate a new-build 120-room Hilton Garden Inn hotel in Ciudad del Este, Paraguay. The hotel is scheduled to begin construction later this year and open at the beginning of 2020.
“As our Latin America portfolio consistently grows with the continued opening of new hotels throughout the region, we are most excited when a new deal also represents a milestone—the first for a brand in a new country,” Tom Potter, SVP of Latin America and the Caribbean, Hilton Worldwide, said in a statement.
Designed by BMA, an architectural firm based in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Hilton Garden Inn Ciudad del Este will form part of a mixed-use complex featuring corporate offices, shopping center, dining and entertainment.
Hilton Worldwide currently has a portfolio of more than 90 hotels and resorts open and welcoming travelers in Latin America, and more than 4,660 hotels open in 102 countries and territories globally. The company is pursuing additional Latin American growth opportunities and currently has a pipeline of more than 50 hotels throughout the region.
