A new Hilton in Argentina
Hilton Worldwide announced the signing of a management agreement with HH Developments to operate a Hilton Garden Inn hotel in Santa Fe – the capital city of the province of Santa Fe, Argentina.
The new-build Hilton Garden Inn Santa Fe, expected to open at the end of 2013, represents the brand’s second development project in Argentina, following the recent announcement of the Hilton Garden Inn Zarate project – a management agreement with the same ownership group.
“We couldn’t be happier to announce this newest project in Argentina and bring another Hilton Garden Inn hotel to our part of the world,” commented Tom Potter, area vice president, operations, South America, Hilton Worldwide. “Hilton Worldwide has a commitment to grow throughout Latin America and introduce new brands to new markets. This agreement is the latest milestone in our efforts, following the opening of the Hilton Garden Inn Santiago Airport in Chile and the signing of the Hilton Garden Inn Zarate in Argentina.”
