First Hilton Garden Inn coming to Swaziland, Africa

Hilton Worldwid signed a management agreement with the Swaziland Public Service Pensions Fund to open a Hilton Garden Inn hotel in Mbabane, Swaziland. 

The new-build 130 guestroom hotel will be located in the center of Mbabane, the administrative capital and largest city in Swaziland. Located on Mhlambanyatsi Road, the main arterial route serving the city center, the hotel will be situated in the CBD and positioned for local and international travelers. The hotel will also have some 800 square feet of event space with 345 square feet of pre-function space, as well as a fitness centre and outdoor swimming pool. 

Mbabane is served by regular services to Johannesburg for connections within South Africa, Africa and internationally. The country benefits from an established road network and in recent years has seen investment into the development of a new airport in Sikhupe - which is one hour from the capital.
