Hilton Garden Inn goes international

Hilton Garden Inn is looking to open three international franchised hotels in Western Europe—making the European hotels the first Hilton Garden Inn locations to open outside the United States, Canada and Mexico. The award-winning mid-priced brand will debut and open one new hotel in Germany and two locations in Italy during 4th quarter 2006.

“Introducing the Hilton Garden Inn brand to countries like Germany and Italy gives us the opportunity to establish a new level of service for global travelers,” said Adrian Kurre, senior vice president—brand management for Hilton Garden Inn. “Our new European hotels look forward to offering guests the same key brand attributes as their North American counterparts which have made Hilton Garden Inn such a trend setting brand in the mid-market category.”

The three European properties will offer key Hilton Garden Inn brand attributes like guestrooms featuring complimentary high speed Internet access and remote printing to the hotel’s complimentary 24-hour business center, the Garden Sleep System(R) bed and Herman Miller Mirra(TM) chair. Each hotel will also feature a full service restaurant offering made-to-order breakfast, lunch and dinner; lounge area and bar; flexible meeting space; a complimentary workout facility; and hotel parking for guests.
