Hilton Worldwide announced Friday the signing of a management agreement with HH Developments to operate a Hilton Garden Inn hotel in Santa Fe – the capital city of the province of Santa Fe, Argentina.
The new-build Hilton Garden Inn Santa Fe, expected to open at the end of 2013, represents the brand’s second development project in Argentina, following the recent announcement of the Hilton Garden Inn Zarate project – a management agreement with the same ownership group.
“We couldn’t be happier to announce this newest project in Argentina and bring another Hilton Garden Inn hotel to our part of the world,” said Tom Potter, area vice president, operations, South America, Hilton Worldwide, in a written release. “Hilton Worldwide has a commitment to grow throughout Latin America and introduce new brands to new markets. This agreement is the latest milestone in our efforts, following the opening of the Hilton Garden Inn Santiago Airport in Chile and the signing of the Hilton Garden Inn Zarate in Argentina.”
The Hilton Garden Inn Santa Fe will welcome guests to a waterfront location on the Paraná River. The hotel will form part of the new Santa Fe Port redevelopment project offering everything from a yacht club and shopping mall to residences, premium office space and meeting facilities.
Hilton Garden Inn Santa Fe, designed with utilizing natural light in mind, will feature 116 guest rooms, all with the Garden Sleep System, allowing guests to adjust the firmness and softness of the bed; an ergonomic Mirra chair by Herman Miller, an LCD high-definition, flat-screen television and more.
