Hilton Worldwide readies Peru expansion

Hilton Worldwide has announced it has signed a management agreement with J.G.J. Proyectistas for the 207-room new-build Hilton Lima Miraflores.

The project, originally planned as a franchise agreement and now to be managed by Hilton Worldwide, is on track to debut by the end of 2012 as the company’s first managed property in Peru and the brand’s first Hilton Hotels & Resorts hotel in the country. 

The full-service Hilton Lima Miraflores is expected to bring 170 employment opportunities to the city’s residents and support the demand for upscale accommodation in the flourishing destination. 

Christopher Nassetta, president chief executive, Hilton Worldwide, joined the company’s regional team in Lima, Peru to officially announce the deal.

“Hilton Worldwide is experiencing a period of remarkable global growth – with the highest growth rate of any major lodging company, the largest pipeline in the industry, and the largest Latin America expansion in our history,” said Nassetta. 

“Peru, with its stable economy and continued growth, is a prime market for international travel, and we are delighted to be working with J.G.J. Proyectistas on bringing this exceptional property to one of Latin America’s most important cities.”

Currently under construction, Hilton Lima Miraflores is located 13 miles from the international airport in an upscale area of Lima known for its shopping areas, gardens, flower-filled parks, beaches and fine dining. 

The hotel, which forms part of the Miracorp Complex, is also near a thriving culinary scene making it ideal for both business and leisure travellers.
