Hilton Hotels brand signs first property in Peru

LIMA Hilton Worldwide has entered into a franchise agreement with J.G.J. Proyectistas S.A.C. to introduce the Hilton Hotels & Resorts brand to the Peru market with the 230-key new-build Hilton Lima Miraflores, scheduled to open in early 2012.

 “Now is a period of tremendous global growth for the Hilton brand, and this partnership will create an exceptional property in Peru’s capital city,” says Dave Horton, global head of the Hilton Hotels & Resorts brand. “With a population exceeding 9 million people, Lima is a major market for international travel and key to our strong presence in South America.”

Already under construction, Hilton Lima Miraflores is located in an upscale area of Peru’s largest city known for its shopping areas, gardens, flower-filled parks, beaches and fine dining. The hotel’s close proximity to the MiraCorp Business Corporate Center and a thriving culinary scene makes it ideal for business and leisure travelers.

“We are delighted to work in partnership with Hilton Worldwide to bring the first Hilton hotel to Peru,” says Ursula Vargas, commercial chief of J.G.J. Proyectistas. “With the city of Lima’s ever-increasing demand for upscale accommodations, we are positioned to be the number one choice for travelers.”

The hotel will reflect a sophisticated, modern Peruvian esthetic. The hotel will offer 10 meeting rooms, a business center and a grand ballroom that accommodates 450 people. It will also have a restaurant, lobby bar and Pisco bar, as well as a sky terrace with a pool, spa and fitness center.
