South to Southwest: Hilton Garden Inn Broadens U.S. Portfolio with Openings in North Carolina, Arizona and Texas
New hotels bring award-winning, upscale, affordable accommodation options to Statesville, N.C.; Tempe, Ariz.; and San Antonio and San Marcos, Texas
MCLEAN, Va. - Travelers who enjoy the southern charms of the U.S. have an additional four destinations to brighten their stays, thanks to the latest round of openings from Hilton's (NYSE: HLT) award-winning, upscale brand.
Hilton Garden Inn is bringing its globally-recognized hotels -- featuring bright, airy, welcoming spaces and the sunny attitudes of its dedicated staff -- to four new destinations that cut a swath across the country's southland:
- Hilton Garden Inn Statesville is located directly off Interstate I-77 just 35 miles north of Charlotte, North Carolina, near Lake Norman - the largest man-made lake in the state with 520 miles of shoreline. Guests can look forward to great food, family-friendly attractions and live entertainment at two of the state's most popular festivals: Carolina BalloonFest and Statesville Pumpkin Festival.
- Hilton Garden Inn Phoenix/Tempe ASU Area is ideally located in Tempe, close to Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport. A short walk away is Tempe Marketplace, with over 100 shops and restaurants, and nearby is the Chicago Cubs Training Facility, golf courses and the Arizona State University campus. Tempe's neighboring city, Phoenix, is included in Forbes Travel Guide's "12 Top Destinations of 2017" for its year's worth of sports events, trendy dining scene and more.
- Hilton Garden Inn San Antonio Airport South is a quick shuttle ride from the airport and ideal for business, military and leisure travelers. The hotel offers easy access to historic and iconic area attractions including the San Antonio RiverWalk, The Alamo and SeaWorld San Antonio, as well as business and government destinations.
- Hilton Garden Inn San Marcos is conveniently located at the midway point between Austin and San Antonio, near the bucolic San Marcos River and the renowned Schlitterbahn Water Park. Guests can shop until they drop at San Marcos Outlets - the largest outlet shopping center in the U.S. - cool off at local breweries and music venues, or enjoy the great outdoors with kayaking, fishing and tubing.
"Each of these destinations offers unique local experiences that attract travelers, making them ideal locations for our upscale, affordable hotels," said John Greenleaf, global head, Hilton Garden Inn. "As our footprint grows in the U.S. and elsewhere, we strive to provide accommodations that enable guests to get the most out of the cities they are visiting while offering the global brand consistency they expect from any of our 700+ Hilton Garden Inn hotels."
With properties in 33 countries and territories, Hilton Garden Inn continues to expand internationally this month as well, opening hotels in two of the most distinctive cities in China and Russia. Hilton Garden Inn Shanghai Hongqiao is the brand's first hotel in China's largest city, and Hilton Garden Inn Volgograd is located in one of the most beautiful and ancient cities of Russia, that will be a host for soccer's largest global event in 2018.
Each property features spacious and contemporary accommodations, on-site dining options for cooked-to-order breakfast and dinner, and enhanced grab-and-go menu items, as well as a full-service bar*. In addition, flexible meeting spaces, free Wi-Fi and numerous other amenities create an experience that allows guests to feel sunny and satisfied, starting with the first hello when they arrive.
The new hotels -- like the 700+ in the Hilton Garden Inn portfolio -- are part of Hilton Honors, the award-winning guest-loyalty program for Hilton's 14 distinct hotel brands. Hilton Honors members who book directly through preferred Hilton channels save time and money and gain instant access to the benefits they care about most, such as an exclusive member discount, free Wi-Fi and a flexible payment slider that allows members to choose nearly any combination of Points and money to book a stay.
