Hilton Garden Inn, the award-winning mid-priced brand that is part of the Hilton Family of Hotels, is pleased to announce that the first Hilton Garden Inn will open in Luton, just northwest of London in the United Kingdom. Owned by Luton Hotel Syndicate, the new Hilton Garden Inn Luton North will be located in Butterfield Business Park and is scheduled to open in 2008.

“We look forward to debuting Hilton Garden Inn in Luton North and establishing the focused service category in the UK with our key brand attributes like complimentary high-speed Internet access, 24-hour business center, the Garden Sleep System bed and Mirra chair by Herman Miller, which have made Hilton Garden Inn the preferred hotel choice for travelers throughout North America,” said Adrian Kurre, Senior Vice President - Brand Management, Hilton Garden Inn.

According to Simon Vincent, Area President for Hilton in the UK and Ireland, “This first Hilton Garden Inn signing in England signals a new era for Hilton in the UK and with Luton as an important business hub with a large population centre, a good access to a growing airport and its easy distance to the sights and sounds of London, the launch of the mid-priced Hilton Garden Inn in this location is sure to be a success.”

All 155 guest rooms at the Hilton Garden Inn Luton North will feature core Hilton Garden Inn brand offerings including complimentary WiFi in guestrooms and public areas, a restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as evening room service.
