SINGAPORE – Hilton Garden Inn, the upscale focused service brand of leading global hospitality company, Hilton (NYSE: HLT), has long been providing business and leisure travelers with affordable accommodations, thoughtful conveniences, and Brighthearted hospitality. As 2023 draws to a close, the award-winning brand marks a significant milestone in its impressive global expansion — the opening of its 1,000th property, Hilton Garden Inn San Jose Airport City Mall in Costa Rica.

Alongside new properties in captivating destinations, Hilton unveiled the brand's new regional prototype this year, emphasizing its strategic roadmap for growth.

"With the launch of our new regional prototype and the ramp up of franchising in markets such as China, Thailand and Australia, we are optimistic about the brand’s growth momentum and look forward to setting new benchmarks for guest satisfaction and owner value in this dynamic region.”

"Reaching the 1,000th property landmark reflects Hilton Garden Inn's commitment to delivering elevated guest experiences across the globe, particularly in Asia Pacific," said Jenny Milos, vice president, Brand Management, Suites & Focused Service, Asia Pacific, Hilton. "The brand’s innovative approach to design and amenities – influenced by regional character and guest preferences – ensures that each Hilton Garden Inn is not only a place to stay but a part of the journey itself, reflecting the unique spirit of its location while promising strong returns for our partners."
