Hilton is opening the Hilton Rio de Janeiro Copacabana, marking a significant milestone as the company’s 100th hotel in Latin America.
The 545-room beachfront Hilton Rio de Janeiro Copacabana is one of the largest hotels in the famous Copacabana neighbourhood, one of Brazil’s most visited destinations, and represents the company’s second property in the city.
“The opening of our 100th hotel in Latin America solidifies our commitment to strategically expanding our footprint and introducing our industry-leading brands throughout this promising region,” said Ian Carter, president, global development, architecture, design and construction, Hilton.
“This milestone is a testament to the strength of our brands and the steadfastness of our teams to deliver success stories.”
Key hotel deals, productive partnerships and many momentous openings paved the way for Hilton to reach the 100 hotel mark in Latin America, where it now supplies approximately 17,000 rooms across nine brands and boasts a pipeline of more than 70 projects across the region.
Hilton Rio de Janeiro Copacabana offers a privileged location in the Copacabana neighbourhood with easy access to the city’s two airports, financial centre, main cultural attractions and world-famous tourist hotspots, as well as a variety of shopping malls and entertainment options for all guests’ tastes.
The iconic beachfront hotel in Rio, which was built in 1975 and completed an extensive renovation in 2011, includes 545 rooms featuring the brand’s sophisticated amenities for guests traveling on leisure or business to the South zone of Rio de Janeiro.
Two restaurants and three bars feature options for breakfast, lunch and dinner ranging from a diverse buffet to an exciting culinary experience paired with selected wines from the hotel’s exclusive cellar.
