MCLEAN, Va.—From America’s largest city to the desert Southwest, Hilton Garden Inn debuted a variety of new lodging options around the country just in time for the busy holiday travel season.
In 2016, 150 million Americans traveled over the Thanksgiving and year-end holiday seasons and that number could rise even more this year, according to projections by AAA and research by IHS Markit. Part of the Hilton family of hotels, Hilton Garden Inn opened seven new U.S. properties in October and early November, with three of the hotels debuting in locations named by Travel + Leisure magazine’s Top 25 List of Best Places for Winter Travel.
“Our Hilton Garden Inn guests deserve to enjoy each and every moment of their stay, whether that be with a handcrafted cocktail from the bar or warm smile from one of our dedicated Team Members,” said John Greenleaf, global head, Hilton Garden Inn. “Now, more travelers have the opportunity to enjoy the bright and satisfying hospitality experience we take such great pride in offering—throughout the holidays, and every day.”
The following hotels are recent additions to the Hilton Garden Inn portfolio of more than 760 hotels worldwide.
Hilton Garden Inn Times Square South is in the heart of a city known for its vibrant holiday displays and tree lightings.
