Over the long term, Hilton Garden Inn plans to grow its worldwide footprint with a special focus on North America.
Despite COVID-19 currently putting several projects on hold, Hilton remains positive about its growth outlook and aims to complete its ongoing projects once the situation permits.
We find out more where Hilton Garden Inn’s newest hotels are planned and which ones you should keep an eye out for.
Openings by year for Hilton Garden Inn
40 projects with 7,000 rooms were in the pipeline for 2020 but the situation unfolding around the novel coronavirus has brought many of these projects to a halt. While Hilton aims to get back on track with hotels meant to open this year, some openings will have to be postponed to 2021.
36 hotels were due to launch in 2021, adding 5,854 rooms, even without spillover from 2020. Another 18 hotels with 3,564 rooms are in the pipeline for 2022 while 25 more are planned for 2023 and beyond.
Hilton Garden Inn’s top growth regions
The 4-star brand will expand most aggressively in North America. 34 new hotels with 5,271 rooms will open there in the coming years.
Asia Pacific will see 29 properties with 6,287 rooms open. This shows that properties in the APAC region will, on average, be larger than in North America.
25 hotels will open around Europe, adding 3,942 rooms to the regional portfolio. The Middle East will get 14 new hotels while 10 will open in South America and 7 will launch in Africa.
Unsurprisingly, the United States and China lead the list of national growth markets. The US takes the lead with 29 projects and 4,607 rooms while 20 projects with 4,209 rooms are in the pipeline for China.
Poland, the United Kingdom and Saudi Arabia follow with 8, 7 and 6 new hotels, respectively.
Noteworthy Hilton Garden Inn projects
The largest project in the brand’s pipeline is the 500-room Hilton Garden Inn The Avenues – Riyadh which is set to open in early 2023. It will be part of a large mixed-use development in downtown Riyadh which will be home to four hotels as well as shopping and entertainment facilities.
MEETT, a new meeting and convention centre is being developed in Toulouse, France. The 289-room Hilton Garden Inn Toulouse will be right next to this cutting-edge fairground and offer visiting delegates a modern and comfortable place to stay while they are in town for business.
The 200-room Hilton Garden Inn Zibo will be part of a newly developed district in Shandong China. It will welcome mainly business travellers visiting the city’s new financial district. The opening is scheduled for late 2021.
Hilton Garden Inn Manchester Airport is planned to open in early 2021 and will be part of the new Airport City Manchester development. The 375-room hotel will split across two wings and feature a sky bar and meeting rooms at rooftop level and a restaurant, garden lounge and fitness centre.
