Hilton to enter Haiti

Hilton Worldwide announced on Thursday that the company is entering Haiti after signing a management agreement with CAB S.A. to open  in 2016 the 152-room Hilton Garden Inn Port-au-Prince Louverture Airport.

Hilton Garden Inn Port-au-Prince Louverture Airport will be located in the airport’s industrial park area, acting as the only internationally branded hotel at the airport. The hotel will be designed with the Hilton Garden Inn Latin America prototype and dining options will include a full service restaurant and lobby lounge. The hotel will also feature the 24-hour Pavilion Pantry shop.

“As tourism continues to contribute significantly to Haiti’s economic development, we are thrilled to work with Dominique Carvonis, President of CAB, S.A. and her team, and play a part in this growth. With the brand’s value proposition and the hotel’s strategic location, we are confident the Hilton Garden Inn Port-au-Prince Louverture Airport will be a successful partner in the nation’s capital and commercial hub,” said Danny Hughes, senior vice president, Caribbean, Mexico and Latin America, Hilton Worldwide.

The announcement showcases the renewed interest among the international brands in Haiti. Thirteen months ago Best Western International, Phoenix, opened the 106-room Best Western Premier Hotel and Spa Pétion-Ville.
