Tempo by Hilton and Motto by Hilton establish strong pipeline presence in the United States, Latin America and Europe

MCLEAN, Va. - Today, Hilton (NYSE: HLT) announced 11 new hotel signings for Tempo by Hilton and Motto by Hilton, representing nearly 20% of the global hospitality company’s lifestyle pipeline. The new properties will be located in the United States, Latin America and Europe, with key signings in New York City, Rotterdam, Tulum, Boston, Mexico City and Seattle. With these newly signed properties, Hilton’s lifestyle category supply is expected to double within the next five years as well as expand to an additional 17 countries/territories over the next 10 years including the first lifestyle property in Africa.

Hilton’s lifestyle category, which includes Canopy by Hilton, Tempo and Motto, offers a portfolio of design-forward, centrally located hotels that redefine the traditional hotel stay and deliver a more distinctive and compelling guest experience at a variety of price points. Leveraging the power and experience of the Hilton enterprise, these brands serve as invaluable experimental zones and innovation factories for everything from new commercial models and technologies to new marketing strategies.

Each property will feature inspiring public spaces, state-of-the-art facilities with product experiences from Peloton and Precor, a unit of Peloton, flexible meeting and working spaces, as well as premium culinary options, such as the brand’s signature coffee and tea fuel bar, a cafe-style breakfast offering and an inviting bar experience.
