Hilton, El Salvador Sign Deal to Open First Property
Hilton has announced the signing of an agreement to debut a Hilton Hotels & Resorts hotel in El Salvador, according to a news report posted on Travel Pulse.
The 198-room Hilton San Salvador is scheduled to open in July 2020, representing a new country for Hilton’s growing portfolio of 160 hotels and resorts welcoming guests across the Caribbean and Latin America, the report goes on to say.
Officially forming part of the World Trade Center Complex, Hilton San Salvador is owned and developed by Grupo Agrisal, and will welcome guests to the country’s capital, known for its black-sand beaches, surfing and vibrant nightlife.
Nestled in the prestigious Colonia Escalon neighborhood which offers one of the best San Salvador Volcano views, the existing property will start a renovation project led by Gensler Costa Rica, before reopening as the 198-room Hilton San Salvador.
With more than 30,000 square-feet of meeting and event space, the hotel boasts the country’s biggest conference center within a hotel featuring 27 meeting rooms, two ballrooms, two boardrooms and 16 flexible meeting rooms.
Hotel guests will enjoy an array of recreational and dining options including an outdoor pool and fitness center, as well as onsite signature dining, bar and Specialty Coffee Shop.
Hilton currently has a portfolio of 160 hotels and resorts open to welcome travelers in 25 countries across the Caribbean and Latin America. The company continues to pursue additional growth opportunities and currently has a robust development pipeline of 100 hotels throughout the region.
In 2020, Hilton has opened three new hotels in the Caribbean and Latin America – including the debut of the first Canopy by Hilton in in the region in Cancun, Mexico; Hilton Garden Inn Neuquén, Argentina; and DoubleTree by Hilton Bogota Salitre AR, Colombia.
Hilton San Salvador will form part of Hilton Honors, the award-winning guest-loyalty program for Hilton’s 18 distinct hotel brands.
