With a global presence in nearly 50 countries and territories, Hilton’s award-winning, upscale brand provides business and leisure guests with exceptional service, affordable accommodations, inviting social spaces and modern amenities.
In 2019, Hilton Garden Inn entered nine new countries – the most growth to new regions during a single calendar year in the brand’s 30-year history. Hilton Garden Inn became the first of any Hilton brand to open in five of these nine locations: Botswana, Latvia, Lithuania, Eswatini and Uganda.
“Of the nearly 50 new properties Hilton Garden Inn opened in 2019, close to 20 percent debuted in countries and territories where the brand previously did not have a presence,” said John Greenleaf, global head, Hilton Garden Inn. “As we rapidly expand our global footprint, we are building on our commitment to increase development opportunities for owners everywhere, while upholding Hilton’s mission to serve more guests in more locations around the world.”
This impressive growth in new and emerging markets was fueled by marquee openings across Africa and Eastern Europe.
