GUATEMALA CITY AND MCLEAN, Va. - Hilton (NYSE: HLT) today announces the signing of Hilton Guatemala City as its latest development and conversion project. Owned by Profesionales en Turismo, S.A., the existing property will undergo a renovation and is expected to open in Q4 2018 as the flagship brand's debut in the country.

"The opening of our first Hilton Hotels & Resorts property in Guatemala speaks to our commitment to further expand our brands in Latin America," said Mario Carbone, director of development, Central America and Yucatan, Hilton. "Through the addition of this property to our growing portfolio, our team will bring quality service and comfortable accommodations to travelers visiting Guatemala's leading cultural and historical hub."

A hacienda-style property, Hilton Guatemala City will boast 130 spacious guest rooms and suites with views of the city and the hotel's beautifully landscaped gardens. The hotel will feature elegant colonial architecture with lavish décor, an outdoor pool, fitness center, and a signature restaurant, lobby bar and coffee shop.

Located at Kilometro 9.5 CA-1 in Complejo Vista Real, in the capital of Guatemala, the hotel will be situated alongside the Carretera a El Salvador, a major artery connecting the hotel to the main commercial and office districts of the city.  Guests can visit Antigua Guatemala, a picturesque colonial town with rich history, or take a short hike up Cerro de la Cruz, which offers breathtaking views overlooking the Volcán de Agua.
