MCLEAN, Va. - Hilton Garden Inn and Hampton by Hilton, the award-winning Hilton Worldwide brands in their respective upscale and mid-priced segments, have launched their first-ever mobile-optimized international Spanish-language booking websites. The sites are designed to support Spanish-speaking guests around the world as they book hotel stays with Hilton Garden Inn and Hampton by Hilton throughout Latin America and Spain.

"Receipts from international tourism in destinations around the world grew by four percent in 2012, according to the United Nations World Tourism Organization," said Phil Cordell, global head, focused service and Hampton brand management, Hilton Worldwide. "As global travel continues to surge, our goal at both Hilton Garden Inn and Hampton by Hilton is for the experience to remain consistent - hotel to hotel, continent to continent. Our service-oriented culture and belief in affordable travel transcends markets. We are here - in Spain, across Latin America, and around the globe - to support guests on their road to success, whether that's a family weekend getaway or an important business meeting."

The sites' available features include:

  • Fully Spanish-translated content and booking widget for easy navigation
  • Enhanced imagery of each property throughout Latin America and Spain
  • Mobile-optimization to mirror the microsites but are tailored for mobile users
  • Simple URLs tailored to Spanish-speaking users

Hilton Garden Inn has more than 570 hotels worldwide, with eight hotels available in Latin America and Spain - and eight additional planned to open in Latin America over the next several years. Hampton by Hilton offers 20 hotels in Latin America, with nine more scheduled to open in the region and over 1,900 hotels across the globe.

Latin America and Spain both introduce opportunities for business and leisure travel. Latin America is one of the fastest-growing regions in the world by GDP, behind only Asia. This growth is driven by an increase in capital investment in travel and tourism.  Spain's popularity as a tourist destination is also increasing; in May 2013, Spain welcomed 5.8 million international tourists, representing a 7.4 percent year-on-year increase.

"These regions are a focus across Hilton Worldwide," Cordell continued. "Together, Hilton Garden Inn and Hampton by Hilton have the largest presence of any of our Hilton Worldwide hotel brands in Latin America and Spain, so we wanted to provide our guests with easy-to-use tools to book their stays."

Regardless of the market, all Hilton Garden Inn hotels support comfortable and connected traveling, including:

  • Full-service casual restaurant serving cooked-to-order and buffet breakfast, a fridge and microwave in each room, a self-service guest laundry facility and the Pavilion PantryÒ which offers an assortment of beverages and snacks
  • Complimentary access to high-speed internet and 24/7 business centers with computers, free printing, faxing and copying
  • Fully-loaded fitness centers, indoor or outdoor swimming pools, and Stay-Fit-Kits are available at most locations so guests can stay in shape with Pilates bands and an ab ball in the comfort of their own room
  • Freshly renovated lobby spaces that feature an open, social space for guests, elevating the lobby from a place of transaction to a place of interaction. By 2014, this new lobby design, called Project Grow, will be implemented in all Hilton Garden Inn hotels

All Hampton by Hilton hotels offer consistent services and amenities to meet the needs of both business and leisure travelers, including:

  • Free hot breakfast with many specialty options catered to each region
  • Free high-speed internet access throughout, including guestrooms. Working desks and lap desks are provided in each guestroom and business centers with free printing, faxing and copying are available. 
  • The clean and fresh Hampton bed® with linens and duvets washed fresh for every guest
  • Modern fitness centers and swimming pools at most locations
