MCLEAN, Va.—Hilton Worldwide announced that it has signed a management agreement for a 260-room new-build Hilton hotel in the Santa Fe area of Mexico City, Mexico. The hotel will form part of Samara—one of the five largest mixed-use complexes in the country, featuring more than 3.8 million square feet of space combining corporate offices, a shopping center, and the upscale Hilton Santa Fe Mexico City. Currently under construction, the hotel is expected to open in March 2014.
“This is an exciting development for us as we expand our portfolio in Mexico and across Latin America,” Rob Palleschi, global head, Hilton Hotels & Resorts, said. “Hilton Santa Fe Mexico City will feature stylish design and bring our signature hospitality to one of Mexico City’s major business districts.”
Designed by Diametro Arquitectos, the hotel fuses the contrasting elements of a crystal building with open, manicured gardens. The interior, designed by HBA / Hirsch Bedner Associates in San Francisco, welcomes guests to a lobby featuring double height ceilings, rich materials, and natural light, as well as access to a coffee bar, lounge and signature restaurant.
When complete, the property will feature 260 guestrooms including executive floor rooms and suites, all outfitted with the Hilton Serenity Collection of amenities including high-definition flat screen televisions, alarm clocks with MP3 player connections, and wireless Internet access. Guests staying in an executive room or suite will have access to executive floor service and the executive lounge, which will offer light snacks and beverages.
Hilton Santa Fe Mexico City will provide more than 8,000 square feet of flexible meeting space including a mezzanine level ballroom designed with warm textured wood feature walls and contemporary chandeliers. A business center will also be available for guests.
Dining and recreational amenities at the hotel include a signature restaurant, lobby lounge, and coffee bar, as well as a rooftop level with a rooftop pool, bar, and fitness center. A 2,500 space parking lot—part of the Samara development—completes the facilities.
