Hilton Garden Inn has today announced the opening of its first hotel in Peru – the Hilton Garden Inn Cusco.
Hilton’s fourth property in Peru is located in the fascinating tourist destination of Cusco, once capital of the Inca empire and now a beautifully preserved (UNESCO) World Heritage Site. Most notably, Cusco is the gateway to a number of famous Incan sites including Urubamba (Sacred) Valley and the Inca Trail – a multi-day trek that leads to the breathtaking mountain citadel of Machu Picchu.
“With Hilton Garden Inn Cusco we are excited to introduce our brand’s signature service, style and Satisfaction Promise to a major tourist destination. Hilton Garden Inn’s positioning as the ideal choice for travellers seeking quality services, thoughtful amenities and great value makes it a compelling brand for the millions of international travellers who visit the city each year,” said John Greenleaf, global head, Hilton Garden Inn.
The 137-room hotel, located in Cusco’s Santa Ana neighbourhood, overlooks the historic city and is within walking distance to Plaza de Armas. It features a colonial design with fresh and contemporary elements, and boasts high-end amenities and welcoming services for travellers.
Guest rooms feature the brand’s signature bedding, a spacious work desk, complimentary Wi-Fi, a 42″ HD flat-screen television, and an in-room “hospitality centre” with mini refrigerator and complimentary coffee.
Dining options at the hotel included a full-service restaurant led by a local Peruvian chef; the Conservatory Lounge, which offers snacks and drinks; and the Pavilion Lounge, complete with fireplace, in-room dining and the 24-hour Pavilion Pantry shop.
Other amenities include flexible meeting space for up to 140 guests, while the courtyards can accommodate 250 guests for social events and gatherings.
“Cusco is undoubtedly one of the most important historic sites and tourist destinations in Latin America. As our first hotel in the area, Hilton Garden Inn Cusco is a great addition to our portfolio and an example of our commitment to grow our presence throughout key markets in South America,” said Tom Potter, senior vice president, Latin America and the Caribbean for Hilton Worldwide.
