Hilton has opened its second dual-branded hotel in Mexico under the Hampton by Hilton and Homewood Suites brands.
Inversión y Desarrollo de hotels en Mexico developed and owns the dual-branded Hampton by Hilton Monterrey Apodaca and Homewood Suites by Hilton Monterrey Apodaca. The 96-room Hampton by Hilton Monterrey Apodaca and the 69-room Homewood Suites by Hilton Monterrey Apodaca Centro is on Avenida del Telefono in Nuevo León. The property is near Plaza Comercial Sendero La Fe, major industrial parks, Monterrey's downtown shopping district and Aeropuerto General Mariano Escobedo (MTY).
“Hampton by Hilton and Homewood Suites by Hilton answer the rising demand for high-quality accommodation in this key manufacturing hub,” Juan Carlos Saade, CEO of Inversión y Desarrollo de Hotels en Mexico, said in a statement. “Merging these two distinct brands affords us the opportunity to redefine the guest experience and to expand our offers in the country, including our upcoming opening of the dual-brand property in Saltillo.”
The new dual-branded hotel is part of Hilton's expansion across Latin America and the Caribbean with a focus in Mexico. It follows the opening of the 190-room Hilton Garden Inn Mexico City Santa Fe and the 172-room DoubleTree by Hilton Mexico City Santa Fe in February 2018, according to a report from MeetingsNet. The dual-branded property next to the Expo Santa Fe Mexico Convention Center is near several restaurants, retail shops and entertainment.
“Following the success of our prototype in the region—Homewood Suites by Hilton Silao Airport—we have strategically focused on expanding the brand’s presence in Mexico,” Adrian Kurre, global head of Homewood Suites by Hilton, said in a statement. “As an important industrial center, we look forward to introducing Apodaca travelers to the brand’s spacious accommodations and convenient amenities for extended stays.”
Hilton has planned to continue its expansion in Mexico with a development pipeline of close to 30 hotels. This includes the development of a third dual-branded hotel—the Hilton Garden Inn and Homewood Suites Saltillo—scheduled to open in 2020. The hotel group has a portfolio of more than 130 hotels and resorts operating in the Caribbean and Latin America.
“While expanding our presence in Latin America, we have focused on growing the dual-brand segment of Hilton’s portfolio, as well as the Homewood Suites by Hilton brand set to open eight properties across Latin America, including four in Mexico,” Juan Corvinos, VP of development, Latin America and the Caribbean at Hilton, said in a statement. “We recognize the importance of blending category-leading brands to meet a wide variety of travel needs in one of the region’s top business hubs.”
