Cancun, Q.R. – International hotel giant, Hilton, has announced nine new properties for Mexico. The international brand has signed deals that will see them develop nine new properties in various parts of the country including Cancun and Playa del Carmen.
The new Hilton brands will include Hilton Hotels & Resorts, Curio – A Collection by Hilton, Hilton Garden Inn, Hampton by Hilton and Homewood Suites by Hilton, as well as the company’s first dual-branded property in Mexico.
The announcement of the new developments will add an additional 1,200 rooms to their existing portfolio of 45 hotels that already exist in the country.
“Mexico continues experiencing impressive tourism growth, and the addition of these hotels will help satisfy the increasing demand from both leisure and business travelers,” said Juan Corvinos, managing director, development, Mexico, Central America and the Hispanic Caribbean, Hilton.
“With nearly 100 open properties in Latin America, Hilton continues to actively pursue growth opportunities in the region. We currently have a robust pipeline of more than 60 hotels across Latin America, including over 30 projects in Mexico.”
Of the new developments, two are expected in the state of Quintana Roo. One of which is The Fives Downtown Hotel Playa del Carmen which will be Curio Collection by Hilton. The new hotel will be Hilton’s first property in the coastal town of Playa del Carmen, along the Yucatán Peninsula’s Riviera Maya strip of Caribbean shoreline. The 93-room new-build property will reflect the region’s natural offerings with a grand wall of live plants and embedded elements that emulate the roots of trees, as well as a skylight. The hotel’s rooftop will feature a restaurant, signature cocktail bar, infinity pool, pool bar and lounge.
The second will be Hampton Inn by Hilton Cancun. The 134-room Hampton Inn by Hilton Cancun is scheduled to open in Q2 2017 in the Pabellon Cumbres area of the city.
