“As Hilton continues expanding in Latin America, our team has strategically focused on pursuing opportunities in Peru, one of the region’s fastest growing economies in the past decade,” Juan Corvinos, VP of development in Latin America and the Caribbean, Hilton, said in a statement.
“With six hotels and more than 850 existing guestrooms in our Peru portfolio, we look forward to further solidifying our presence with milestone projects, including brand debuts in Lima and throughout the country in destinations, such as Arequipa and Tarapoto.”
Hilton will also debut its Hampton and Homewood Suites brands in Peru by 2021 along with two Hilton Garden Inn properties.
The upcoming projects include the 148-room Hampton Inn by Hilton Lima San Isidro opening in 2019, the 104-room Hampton Inn by Hilton Arequipa opening in 2020, the 86-room Hampton Inn by Hilton Tarapoto opening in 2021, the 100-room Homewood Suites by Hilton Lima Miraflores opening in 2021, the 250-room Hilton Garden Inn Lima Miraflores opening in 2019 and the 194-room Hilton Garden Inn Lima San Isidro opening in 2020.
Hilton currently has a portfolio of six hotels in Peru. The group’s most recent opening was the renovated 71-room DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Iquitos, which began operating in February 2018.
THPT Comment: Launched in January 2017 as Hilton’s 14th brand, and claimed at the time to “offer guests a refreshing choice for an independent hotel stay” – what does that actually mean?
Each hotel will maintain its individual spirit, offering guests an experience that is approachable and familiar as well as different from other hotels. In addition, each stay is backed by the reassurance of the Hilton name.
“The launch of Tapestry Collection by Hilton extends Hilton’s proven growth strategy, which focuses on developing clearly-defined brands organically to grow our global footprint, create more hotel options for existing guests and attract new guests,” said Christopher J. Nassetta, president and CEO, Hilton.
“With Tapestry Collection by Hilton we are responding to our guests’ and owners’ desire for a compelling new choice for an upscale collection brand,” said Mark Nogal, global head, Curio – A Collection by Hilton and Tapestry Collection by Hilton. “A ‘tapestry’ is a one-of-a-kind, woven piece of art, making it the ideal name for our new collection of hotels that are dedicated to being different.” …..Oh OK!
So welcome to these two new hotels, to the 10 current hotels in the USA and upcoming 8, also in the USA.
