RZESZOW, Poland - Hilton Garden Inn, the award-winning brand of mid-market hotels, today announced the opening of its second property in Poland. 

Located in one of Poland's most historic cities, Hilton Garden Inn Rzeszow is a short walk away from the town's Market Square, where tourists can experience the magic of the Rzeszow Cellars, an underground network of streets and hidden passages which date back to the medieval period.  For many leisure travellers, Rzeszow also provides a popular base for exploring the ancient city of Lancut whose attractions include Lancut Castle, a beautiful 17th century palace which now houses a large museum.

The city of Rzeszow is also a thriving centre for business and commerce, with the Hilton Garden Inn Rzeszow conveniently based in the city's central business district.  The hotel boasts 650sqm of fully equipped conference rooms with capacity for up to 450 guests.  Extensive transport links are provided through Rzeszow train station which is just 2.5km from the hotel and the nearby Jasionka Airport.

Simon Vincent, Area President Europe, Hilton Worldwide said, "Hilton Garden Inn continues to enjoy success across Europe, with more than 50 hotels now trading or in the pipeline.  We are excited about the opportunities Poland presents for Hilton Worldwide and look forward to welcoming our first guests in Rzeszow, a city which combines a rich sense of history with the vibrancy of a modern fulcrum for business and commerce."

All 101 guestrooms at Hilton Garden Inn Rzeszow are fitted out with the Serta Garden Sleep System bed and signature features from the brand, such as the ergonomic Mirra chair by Herman Miller and complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi internet access.  The hotel also offers a business centre and 24 hour Precor fitness centre, both available to access free of charge with the opportunity for guests to earn and redeem Hilton HHonors points and take advantage of benefits enjoyed by over 30 million members worldwide.

Adrian Kurre, Global Head, Hilton Garden Inn, said, "Having launched the brand in Poland with the opening of Hilton Garden Inn Krakow last year, we are excited to be bringing our second hotel to the country.  Our award-winning brand fills a gap in the Polish market by providing internationally-branded, mid-market accommodation that appeals to value-conscious leisure and business travellers."

Guests at Hilton Garden Inn Rzeszow will be able to enjoy a range of Polish and international cuisine at its 72 seat restaurant, whilst having the option to unwind at the hotel's stylish bar.  Alternatively the 24 hour Pavillion Pantry offers snacks and lite bites on the go. Rzeszow's Millenium Hall complex, containing 200 retail outlets and a range of entertainment facilities, is adjacent to  the hotel.

In 2011, Hilton Garden Inn received JD Power & Associates' highest honour in Europe, taking first place in the European Hotel Guest Satisfaction Index Study for first time in the brand's five-year history in Europe.  This marked the first time the brand had a sufficient sample size to rank in the European study, coming in 57 points higher than the segment average.

Hilton Worldwide has had a presence in Poland since 2007 and the opening of Hilton Warsaw Hotel & Convention Centre and the new Hilton Garden Inn Rzeszow brings its number of hotels operating in the country up to five.  Its Polish portfolio is set to double by 2014 with a further five openings scheduled across the country.
