Hilton opened its newest hotel, the dual-branded Hampton by Hilton Monterrey Apodaca and Homewood Suites by Hilton Monterrey Apodaca. This opening represents Hilton’s second dual-brand hotel in Mexico.

“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.”

With more than 130 hotels and resorts currently open and welcoming travelers in the Caribbean and Latin America, Hilton has continued to focus on expanding its portfolio in Mexico. The global hospitality company has nearly 60 properties from several Hilton brands across the country and a development pipeline of nearly 30 hotels, including plans for a third dual-brand property with Hilton Garden Inn and Homewood Suites Saltillo set to open in 2020.

“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, 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.”

The dual-brand concept offers upgraded communal areas and amenities for both business and leisure travelers. Each hotel has its own lobby and dining area, each catering to the needs of their respective guests, as well as a 24-hour fitness center, outdoor pool and basketball court. The hotels also offer flexible meeting space accommodating up to 100 guests.

Developed and owned by Inversión y Desarrollo de hotels en Mexico, the 96-room Hampton by Hilton Monterrey Apodaca and the 69-room Homewood Suites by Hilton Monterrey Apodaca are located at Av. del Telefono, No. 4498 Col Apodaca Centro in one of the fastest growing cities in Nuevo León. Situated near Plaza Comercial Sendero La Fe, Hampton by Hilton and Homewood Suites by Hilton Monterrey Apodaca offers access to industrial parks and Monterrey’s downtown shopping district. The hotel is located nine miles from Aeropuerto General Mariano Escobedo.

“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.”
